Solange Knowles In Stéphane Rolland Couture - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Solange Knowles made her Cannes Film Festival debut on the red carpet this evening for ‘The Great Gatsby’ premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony.

I remember the hairs that stood up on the back of my neck when I saw this stunning Stéphane Rolland Fall 2012 feather-accented caramel gown taking to the runway. Sadly, the same effect didn’t happen this evening.

While I love the gown, her Chopard jewels and that orange-red lip, the gown loses its fierceness with that thin gold belt.

I would have preferred the warrior princess runway belt and a smaller Jimmy Choo clutch.

Knowing Solange was attending this event, I think I may have set my expectations too high.

Is anyone feeling the mehness of this look?
