Solange Knowles In Esteban Cortazar – Absolut Tune Launch Party

Solange Knowles attended the Absolut Tune Launch Party at The Top of The Standard in New York City on Tuesday night.

The singer/DJ wore her second look from the Esteban Cortazar Resort 2013 collection.

On this occasion she donned an ivory satin cut-out dress with a leather bustier and off-white pleated chiffon skirt.

It’s just like Solange to wear something different and unique, but I wish she opted for a darker colour on her lips as she looks a tad washed out.

Solange wore Giuseppe Zanotti tan booties, which were a celebrity favourite for a while, but they don’t work with her look for me.

The Esteban Cortazar metal ankle-cuff leather sandals as worn by the model would’ve been preferred.

Yay or nay on Solange’s shoe choice?

    I think the shoes go with the dress however, I don’t like dress. I don’t think this is better on someone with smaller breasts.

    I love that Solange is working her magic on up-and-coming designers. I like everything (including her footweart) but the lips.

    A punchy coral would’ve been divine.

    I bet she has the runway heels in her closet already (ha!) and maybe didn’t want to be obvious. She isn’t really one to copy the runway.

      Me too. I love that fact that she is giving exposure to fresh upcoming designers but the shoes are not a good choice for this cute look.

    I like the dress and I even like it with the shoes. They make more sense when you see her clutch. She is unique and so stylish. I don’t always like what she chooses, but I love her sense of adventure.

    Yay! I agree about the lips colour.

    Not loving it, don’t like the booties or her pale lip or the skirt which should’ve been a bit shorter (more in a mid knee than just below the knee)for her.

    Love the look, especially the shoe choice. i would loved some lip color also

    No, it’s too long and the skirt is too big for Solange. Besides, the shoes on the model are way better.

    This look is a big Zero for me. Don’t like the dress, shoes or makeup. She can do so much better!

    I think Solange’s rep as a tastemaker is overated.

    I like her style always. She’s so unique but not harsh at the same time. It’s not so colorful but a clean look. I love it. She has the same giuseppe zanotti booties like Michelle has.

    It’s not for the topic, but HAve you seen Britney Spears in a long halston dress????!!!!!!

    What horrible dress!

  12. Yeliz October 11, 2012 at 21:26 #

    The skirt is too long and I agree that she needed a darker lip colour. The shoes are OK, but the model’s shoes would have been better.

    Just say no to weird cutouts!
    Not a good look imo.

  14. bm October 12, 2012 at 06:11 #

    Nay for everything. Make-up, dress (worst dress i’ve ever seen), and shoes.
    I think she went too far this time.

  15. Pene October 12, 2012 at 09:13 #

    nay but am starting to get used to her

  16. TeaAtTwo October 12, 2012 at 12:54 #

    Not usually a fan of cut-outs but this look is working for me. I agree about the lips though. The shoes aren’t my favourite choice but they’re ok with look.

    I like the concept of the dress much more than I like the execution. It’s like an all-white Mondrian, and I love clean lines. But worn (on model or Solange) the effect is jarring.
