Solange Knowles In 3.1 Phillip Lim – 2014 Met Gala

Solange Knowles In 3.1 Phillip Lim - 2014 Met Gala

I barely recognized Solange Knowles at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The songstress exchanged her signature ‘fro for a choppy, short bob, which caught my eye even before her 3.1 Phillip Lim custom dress did.

Continuing to ban her former love of prints in favour of a new affinity for bold, solid colours, she wore the orange sherbet-hued frock with 3.1 Phillip Lim sandals and edgier Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Although she worked this shorter frock instead of a gown, the loosely draped and ruffled dress still retained some element of vintage glamour, all spiked with a mod twist—mostly thanks to that new ’do.

Anya Hindmarch clutch completed her look.

    The site is looking weird and wonky. A lot of hits coming through I guess

    Cutesy and blah, don’t like the dress on her, nothing to get excited about.

    The hair is AWFUL. The dress is also not great. I’m very disappointed with her look, I expected her to be great.

      This.
      That hair doesn’t suit her face at all & I wanted more drama for her.

      I agree.

      +3. Gee, so many looks that miss the mark from the people I least expected this from. Another disappointment.

      Dreadful look

    Underdressed IMO

    A nice colour and styling (mostly) but I don’t find appeal in the shape of the dress or her new do. Bring back the fro!

      +1. I’m not feeling the hair. But the color looks great on her!

    Nope.

    I like the skirt, but not the loose top. The hair is a bit Carol Burnett. A rare miss for Solange.

    first time I’m disappointed by her and especially that hair :( have no words for it, bad bad bad!

    This is awful the hair the fit of the dress.

  11. EmmaWoodhouse May 6, 2014 at 14:58 #

    Disappointing. I like the tucks in the skirt, very Charles James, but the shape isn’t at all and the overall dress is a mess.

    dress = fail, hair = fail, face = fail, she look awful!

  13. alice May 7, 2014 at 09:59 #

    oh god the hair…..fail fail fail

    She looks like she’s 40! That wig-no, and that dress-no. No , no, no!
