Solange Knowles In Sportmax – Audi Forum New Orleans

Solange Knowles In Sportmax - Audi Forum New Orleans

Solange Knowles was the guest DJ at the Audi Forum New Orleans held at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in Louisiana on Saturday evening.

Prior to taking up her duties, she was spotted on the red carpet sporting a more muted look than we’ve come to expect from the colour-loving, print-obsessed fashionista.

The singer/DJ wore a white ensemble from the Sportmax Spring 2013 collection, featuring an oversized leather coat, a sheer top and an asymmetrical-cut leather skirt.

Even her Gucci ankle-cuff sandals came in one solid colour, but she did provide a pop of colour courtesy of her bold fuchsia lips.

My only issue with this look is the size: it feels too big for Solange. I would’ve also loved to have seen the look without the jacket.

Solange Knowles In Alberta Ferretti & Miu Miu – XOYO London

Solange Knowles In Alberta Ferretti & Miu Miu - XOYO London

Solange Knowles brightened up the streets of London last week with her colourful, eclectic style.

The singer was in town performing at XOYO to promote her new album, ‘True’.

You may remember we had print overload the last time out, so I’m delighted Solange opted this time to mix prints with solids.

I’m sure you instantly spied her retro-inspired Miu Miu Fall 2012 ensemble, with a purple, camel and pale-blue print.

To add to the 70s sensibility of the look, she donned an Alberta Ferretti teal, purple and pink patterned twill coat.

White t-bar ankle-strap pumps and a yellow scarf completed her look.

Do you love this look or are you suffering from print overload fatigue?

Solange Knowles In Just Cavalli – ‘Girls’ Season 2 Premiere

Solange Knowles In Just Cavalli - 'Girls' Season 2 Premiere

After experimenting with a few different hairstyles towards the end of last year, Solange Knowles returned to her natural ‘fro for the ‘Girls’ Season 2 premiere, held at the NYU Skirball Center in New York City yesterday evening.

When it comes to prints, I love ‘em just as much as Solange, but there is just too much going on with this look.

Dressed in a Just Cavalli Pre-Fall 2013 printed suit, the singer then added a print clutch and black-and-white striped sandals into the mix.

I wish that there was just one solid piece within this look, as my eyes are darting all over the place to take it all in.

A dark-berry lip shade completed her look.

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.
