Solange Knowles In Flaminia Saccucci – 2012 MoMA Party In The Garden Benefit

Solange Knowles attended the 2012 MoMA Party In The Garden Benefit in New York City last night where she was the guest DJ.

The star is known for championing fresh young talent and on this occasion she wore a look by Central Saint Martin’s graduate Flaminia Saccucci.

She almost wore the full runway look which consisted of a green floral blazer, white blouse, and what appears to be half knickerbocker, half culottes situation.

Solange opted out of wearing the yellow-and-black tyre-track leggings – thankfully.

A gold-and-ivory clutch, gold Cartier jewels and nude Casadei pumps accessorized her look with the finishing touches including her trademark ‘fro and a hot-red lip colour.

    This must be the definition of someone “owning” an outfit. Aside from that hideous yellow leg, the runway version just looked ridiculous to me. On Solange, however, it looks terrific. She really has an eye for what suits her.

  • Leeksie

    If only she wore a lemon colored heels instead…


    where can i get that red lipstick color she has looks gorgeous on her skin…i have somewhat of her skin tone and cant for the life of me find matte red that suits me;(

  • Chinyere

    currently obsessing….

  • Marybeth

    I usually detest this kind of thing. (Is it shorts? Is it a skirt? Is it a bird? Is it a plane?)
    BUT,…..for some reason I actually like this.
    Yes, I like it. 😀 Weird.

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    Had this been a skirt, I could have liked it. This is just ridiculous.

  • Rebecca Z

    I like her a lot and admire her risk-taker approach, but can’t get into this particular look. The print is muddy, the skirt ridiculous, especially paired with the conservative shell and jacket top. Memo to the designer: just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

  • Riley

    This look is too similar in concept to her Maki Oh look.

    Solange looks drop dead gorgeous. Being a Fashion icon is not for the faint of heart and her look is clearly not for ur button down average joe so it won’t sweeten everyone’s taste bud. We have to admire and only wish we were this daring and could pull anything of! Solange is IT for me this year her fashion game constantly blows me way. Clearly a leader of the pack.

  • Nat

    If she was wearing a proper skirt or even shorts, instead of those underpants/diaper, I would totally be on board with this look.

  • Christine

    She is so fun on the red carpet. I love that she is bringing new designers press cred. I love everything except for the dull shoes.

  • Yeliz

    You have no idea how happy I am that she didn’t wore those hideous leggings.
    This is a fun and quirky ensemble, I like it. Her shoes however are just boring.

  • Lalitha

    Ummm, no.

  • Jones19

    The half pants thing going on is weird but she makes it look less ridiculous than someone else might.

  • justme

    I like her style… a lot lol.

  • Alina

    Surprisingly, it works for her.

      • mm

        I agree, she pulls it off

    • Artemis

      I have to agree! I love it!!

      • Mol


    • snowlion

      I agree, unexpectedly so.

  • Mahima

    I don’t understand the half skirt and half leotard thing she is wearing. It’s just weird and ugly.
    I do like the top half of this outfit though.

    • bm

      me too, and love the clutch too.

    • dee


    • Rory

      Yup, totes.
