Solange Knowles In Olcay Gulsen – Ermenegildo Zegna ‘Essenze’ Collection Launch Event

Showcasing another super-voluminous ‘do, Solange Knowles joined Peter Facinelli and Ed Burns on the red carpet at the Ermenegildo Zegna boutique in New York City yesterday evening for the brand’s ‘Essenze’ Collection launch event.

The singer/DJ took a rare night off from wearing colourful prints to don a peachy Olcay Gulsen dress, which is one of Sophia Bush’s favourite brands.

Solange’s jersey dress, featuring daring double thigh-high slits and a high neckline, was styled with B Brian Atwood ‘Labrea’ corded snakeskin sandals, a gold jewels and a gold embellished clutch.

This is yet another sexy chic look from Miss Knowles. She continues to impress and delight with her sartorial choices.

    Looks good, but always the same..

    The two slits aren’t the most flattering on anyone, but the dress looks a lot better on her than on the model.

    I’m amazed by how unflattering this dress looks on the model, on Solange , and on pretty much any other woman on the planet, I imagine.
    Great job, designer!

      I can’t believe it either!

        She’s a great stylist. I love her fashion choices lately.

    I like how she accessorized the look but the dress isn’t doing her body any favours unfortunately, it’s not working well on her figure, and while I’m a fan of her signature ‘do, wish she’d tamed it a bit, it’s exaggerated to a distracting unappealing degree.

    Drop dead gorgeous. Love her in this ensemble.

    • Alina December 5, 2012 at 15:58 #

      I like it too.

  6. Odette December 4, 2012 at 18:43 #

    I like this look. The accessories are interesting and sexy.

  7. Umi December 4, 2012 at 18:45 #

    I’m not sure the double slits are quite flattering here. Looks better on the model. But I quite like the color on her.

  8. Kathy December 4, 2012 at 18:45 #

    I can’t get past the slits (if they can even be called slits, they’re so prominent). I absolutely loathe this look. The color doesn’t flatter her and it looks extremely awkward (imagine trying to walk in that). This dress was clearly made for someone with a less curvy figure because the fit is all wrong on Solange, yet looks way better on the model.

    • carolina December 5, 2012 at 02:20 #

      I could not agree more. This is an awful look – color, style, and fit.

  9. Leti December 4, 2012 at 18:48 #

    I would have loved this look, if not for the double slits. I find them ugly and tacky.

  10. mm December 4, 2012 at 18:53 #

    Love everything minus the dress. She always confident in any look on the red carpet.

    • CreoleLady December 4, 2012 at 19:26 #

      LOL. I don’t like the dress either — color, (one too many) slits, sheen or fit. Not terrible, just not quite.

      She’s reminding me a bit of Donna Summer here, haven’t decided if it’s a good or bad thing.

  11. NooG December 4, 2012 at 18:56 #

    She looks like an Amazonian goddess. Love.

  12. dee December 4, 2012 at 19:05 #

    Don’t like the slits or hair. Shoes are gorgeous.

  13. mark December 4, 2012 at 19:18 #

    catherine, this is off topic but were you in prada on bond st monday night around 5?

    • Fashion Critic December 4, 2012 at 19:51 #

      no that wasn’t me :)

  14. zineb December 4, 2012 at 19:20 #

    I think Solange will get my vote for ‘the breakout fashionista of the year’ award if you ever nominate her FC :) And by the way, looking forward to it ! It has been a great fashion year

  15. fromchi-town December 4, 2012 at 20:47 #

    Not feeling this look on Solange. I think the slits are very unflattering!

  16. Dhppy December 4, 2012 at 20:54 #

    A rare miss for Solange. The shoes are nice, though.

  17. Yeliz December 4, 2012 at 21:54 #

    Would have loved everything if the dress only had one slit. Those two slits just doesn’t look nice and too tight. I love her accessories and the colour of the dress against her skin.

  18. J December 4, 2012 at 22:10 #

    Two words: hot mess.

  19. justme December 4, 2012 at 22:44 #

    I would have been on board with only one slit and tamed hair. I love a big afro as much as the next person but this is bad.
    Love the shoes though.

  20. TeaAtTwo December 4, 2012 at 23:01 #

    The woman likes her slits lately. It’s not my favourite outfit but she rock this sporty flapper dress to look fun and funky with the hair and sexy sandals.

  21. EmmaWoodhouse December 5, 2012 at 02:35 #

    Her hair is too wild here; I don’t love the bangs. I like her accessories but this dress is so tacky, unflattering, and simaltaneously bland–like a wrestler’s singlet mixed with a bodycast. I don’t know. Just bad.

  22. Laura December 5, 2012 at 04:29 #

    the material looks cheap and im not crazy about the bangs. too bad cause usually i think she looks great.

  23. StylistLiz December 5, 2012 at 05:38 #

    Absolutely loving the hair! Is this a ‘more over big sis, I got this on lock’ type of new feeling? Ha! I like the dress, its simple with an edge and some sex-kitten appeal. Heels are perfect, as it doesn’t minus or add to the look. Just right.

  24. Jess2 December 5, 2012 at 05:47 #

    This is a no from me. The double slits are terrible, they don’t look great on the model and with Solange’s stance they look even worse and give a tacky feel to the bottom half of the dress. The styling is good though.

    • Lola December 5, 2012 at 23:06 #

      I was going to say the exact same thing. Double slits are a big NO for me. It never works.

  25. Lisa December 6, 2012 at 00:55 #

    Go Solange! You wear sexy well!

  26. Pene December 6, 2012 at 09:57 #

    This dress was made for a smaller size lady. The hips are clearly bulging out of the dress
