Solange Knowles In Christian Siriano – Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience

Solange Knowles In Christian Siriano - Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience

Solange Knowles attended the inaugural ‘Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience’, an evening of glamour which brought ‘the magic of Vogue’ to the Middle East for the first time, which was hosted by Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani, and was also attended by Naomi Campbell and Karolina Kurkova.

The singer, who’s back to sporting micro braids, DJ’d on the night wearing a super-chic look from Christian Siriano’s Spring 2013 collection.

On some this white-and-grey woven look featuring a jacket with flared sleeves and a skirt with a daring slit wouldn’t have worked so well, but Solange is a pro at mastering the unexpected and complicated.

Her signature bold lip was toned down to a rich-red shade, with black Saint Laurent sandals completing her look.

Solange Knowles In Araks – Vampire Weekend

Solange Knowles In Araks - Vampire Weekend

Solange Knowles supported the Vampire Weekend show with a 40-minute set at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center last Friday.

The singers music has been described as a mix of classic ’60s soul and commercial ’80s funk-rock, so it’s clear that likes to mix her music as much as her prints.

On this occasion she wore a Araks Fall 2013 floral print top with wave print trousers which she opted to style with simple black sandals.

Usually one to opt for a bold lip, she worked a dark orange hue on this occasion.

Solange Knowles In 10 Crosby Derek Lam – BET’s 106 & Park

Solange Knowles In 10 Crosby Derek Lam -  BET's 106 & Park

Solange Knowles paid a visit to BET’s 106 & Park Studio in New York City on Wednesday.

I’m sure you may be as surprised as me to see that the songstress skipped the mixed prints in favour of an all-white number by 10 Crosby Derek Lam.

The crisp colour of the ensemble was juxtaposed by its slouchy silhouette and the delightful pops of fuchsia on her pout and her nails.

And a bit of print still showed up, too, as Solange conveniently posed in front of a patterned wall, which added some visual interest.

Do you like her more plain-Jane moment, or is she at her best when she plays the power print-cess?

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Here’s a quick catch up of the front row who caught my eye during New York Fashion Week this weekend.

Ciara @ Prabal Gurung: The singer wore a pretty Prabal Gurung embroidered angular insert dress with a flared silhouette styled with bondage boots courtesy of Casadei, which were presented during the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

Solange Knowles @ Alexander Wang: What’s not to love about Solange’s outfit? The colour, the quirky glasses, the Wang Resort 2014 skirt, that bag and those sexy sandals…? Perhaps it shouldn’t, but it ALL works.

Rihanna @ Opening Ceremony: It’s been a while since we saw Rihanna front row at NYFW, as she tends to skip the shows and head to the after-parties. On Sunday she was front and centre at Opening Ceremony wearing a grey Zac Posen satin floral dress with Underground ‘Wulfrun’ creepers with a Lynn Ban choker. A part of me wants to say it’s ridiculous to pair such a pretty dress with creepers, but I have to say she sells it to me, as per.

Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week Front Row – Day 2

Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week Front Row – Day 2

With New York Fashion Week fully under way, the FROW regulars are coming out to play. Here, a look at yesterday’s statement-making starlets in the chic seats at the Spring 2014 shows.

Ashley Madekwe @ Cushnie et Ochs: The ‘Revenge’ actress made waves at the Cushnie et Ochs presentation at Milk Studios in a fiery red-orange frock from the label, which is immediately recognizable for the cutout detail. The peekaboo double-slash through the center of the dress has sultriness and edge without being try-hard or distracting. The same goes for her effortless styling, including a swept-back ‘do, minimal makeup and a barely-there pair of black, skinny strap Saint Laurent sandals.

Taylor Momsen @ Helmut Lang: Wearing her go-to colour—black—the actress-cum-singer covered up in a Helmut Lang sweater-and-skirt ensemble at the brand’s show. The knee-high lace-up boots, not to mention her bed-head platinum waves and red under-eye shadow, which replaced her favoured smokey, raccoon eyes, added the rocker-rebel vibe that currently defines her style.

Solange Knowles @ Noon By Noor: Giving us one of the more spirited looks of the day, the songstress naturally wore a printed ensemble from the Noon By Noor Resort 2014 collection, when she attended the young brand’s show, held at The Studio at Lincoln Center. The playful palm-tree blazer and wide trouser shorts, mixed with the embroidered flamingos on the blue shirt, had a retro, fun flair only boosted by Sophia Webster’s pink-edged ‘Leilou’ T-strap sandals, which she wore with black socks.

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Launch Event

31 Phillip Lim for Target Launch Event

The 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection doesn’t hit stores until September 15, with prices ranging from $19.99 to $299.99 for apparel and $19.99 to $59.99 for accessories, so just to further whet our appetites, the designer hosted a party to celebrate the collaboration at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening, inviting along some of his loyal celebrity fans.

Jessica Alba: The actress wore the ‘Boom’ print sweatshirt ($29.99) – which I predict will be one of the pieces many people will be hoping to get their hands on – which was inspired by the designer’s ‘Ka-Pow’ sweater from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Jessica styled her sweater with two-tone black-and-blue tuxedo pants ($39.99) and a 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target bag which was inspired by the ‘Pashli’ bag, with red Christian Louboutin ‘Decollete 554′ pumps completing her laidback I-want-every-piece look.

Maria Sharapova: The tennis star wore a colour-block look, opting for a navy-and-green pullover ($34.99) with a navy banded skirt ($29.99), adding her own touch via her white Nicholas Kirkwood gold-and-white resin hexagon accented pumps from the designer’s HEX collection.

Solange Knowles: Also working a high-low mix, the singer worked a navy-and-black tuxedo ($59.99) with, of course, a colourful animal-printed skirt ($29.99). Givenchy sandals and a Fendi clutch accessorized her look, with an additional pop of colour coming from her vivid red lip shade.
