Fashionista Of The Year 2012 – Solange Knowles

No longer in her older sister’s shadow, Solange Knowles took the fashion world by storm in 2012.

Even American Vogue noted her sartorial style choices as she was firmly placed on their best dressed list for 2012, joining the likes of Emma Stone, Rooney Mara, Zoe Saldana and LeeLee Sobieski.

We loved her for her ‘stepping outside the box’ style choices, which ranged from multiple prints, African-inspired pieces, luxe gowns, colour-blocking, her love for all things yellow and of course her ‘fro.

She also introduced us to many underground designers such as Esteban Cortazar, Boxing Kitten, Rubin Singer, Flaminia Saccucci and Maki Oh which not only cemented her trend setting status, but also gave a much needed spotlight to these talented up-and-coming designers.

The one thing we could predict when it came to Solange’s style, is that she would never be predictable.

Solange Knowles In Boxing Kitten – Listening Party For Solange Knowles New Album ‘True’

Late last month, Solange Knowles threw a listening party for her new album, ‘True’ at the Sonos Studios in LA.

My favourite girl, mostly for her love of prints, donned a Boxing Kitten ‘Oxford’ romper from the designers Spring 2013 collection.

The look which incorporates African prints with a contemporary design, was styled with coral lips, bouncy, soft curls and green-and-black buckle accented sandals.

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.

Solange Knowles In Kenzo – Absolut Tune Celebration

Solange Knowles hosted a party last Tuesday at The Standard Spa in Miami to celebrate the launch of Absolut Tune, a mix of vodka and sparkling white wine.

The singer/DJ looked amazing, wearing a Kenzo Spring 2013 dress.

As you know, I’m obsessed by Solange’s style because we both have a penchant for colour and prints.

On this occasion she mixed the two, wearing a vibrant teal short-sleeve silk dress with a side slit, which had a decorative multi-coloured leopard-print necklace collar.

Her favourite Pierre Hardy PVC multi-coloured sandals, which she first wore on the red carpet back in 2008, are still going strong and work perfectly with this look.

J’adore… but what’s new?

Solange Knowles In Derek Lam – 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards


My current girl crush, Solange Knowles, also attended the 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards at Carnegie Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

The singer/DJ opted for my favourite colour combo – blue and yellow – when she donned this Derek Lam Spring 2013 dress.

Her hip guipure lace Derek Lam dress features a grosgrain-trimmed crew neck, short sleeves, and a slender black grosgrain inset waistband.

Solange styled her look with the same Giuseppe Zanotti black and gold strappy sandals we saw on Rita Ora on Sunday, plus a gold-chain-accented clutch.

The jury is still out on the neon-orange lippie, but as always she’s rocking that voluminous curly ‘do.
