Solange Knowles In Prada – ‘Blue Jasmine’ New York Premiere

Solange Knowles In Prada - 'Blue Jasmine' New York Premiere

Solange Knowles attended the ‘Blue Jasmine’ New York premiere held at MOMA yesterday evening in New York City alongside Cate Blanchett.

I was completely crestfallen when I saw her in this head-to-toe Prada Spring 2013 look as there isn’t much I like about it.

Her mint-green top and skirt with floral appliqués are considerably more wearable than the complicated layered look which took to the runway, yet even Solange can’t sell me this muted version.

I wasn’t a fan of this collection and few pieces off the runway have piqued my interest.

Even with the Prada accessories, including a glittery bag and pink bow-accented sandals, I find myself being more excited about the return of her ‘fro.

Solange Knowles In Dolce & Gabbana – RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest

Solange Knowles In Dolce & Gabbana - RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest

Last week Solange Knowles performed at the RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest in Ottawa, Canada.

The singer wore an interesting Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 ensemble, which incorporated a striped multi-coloured raffia bustier and a red bell-shaped wicker skirt.

Neither piece looks comfortable, yet Solange in her thigh-grazing braids rocked the hell out of the look.

Max Mara Celebrates Jennifer Garner

Max Max Celebrates Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner was officially unveiled as Max Mara’s first celebrity spokesperson at a party held at Bill’s Food & Drink in New York City last night.

Jennifer Garner: The lady of the hour opted for a Max Mara black satin strapless cocktail dress styled with a black satin gold trim, Max Mara envelope clutch, Pomellato jewels and black sandals with a gold ankle strap. Adding a waist-defining belt would’ve perfected this look for me.

Solange Knowles: When it comes to Solange Knowles, I don’t need to make any suggestions to perfect her look, because it is already there. The print-loving singer opted for a simple Sportmax silk jersey sheath dress in her favourite hue, yellow, with on-trend white pumps, white nails and a hot-pink lip colour.

Molly Sims: The model/actress also opted for a Sportmax dress. Her summery pink-and-white striped look with a draped detail across the shoulders could’ve benefited from better styling. The nude Louboutins work, but I am not a fan of the brown Max Mara ‘Hollywood II’ clutch with this look.

Solange Knowles In Teatum Jones – 2013 Glastonbury Festival

Solange Knowles In Teatum Jones - 2013 Glastonbury Festival

Solange Knowles performed on the Park Stage during day 2 of the 2013 Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm on Friday in Glastonbury, England.

The singer displayed her perpetual love for colour and print, wearing a Teatum Jones Fall 2012 ensemble featuring a rise-and-fall top with matching trousers.

Having worn her braids in an updo for the last few appearances, she let them flow freely on this occasion.

Bright-pink lips offset the pink hue of her outfit and Sophia Webster pointy pumps with a decorative ankle strap completed her look.

This is the third pair of Sophia Webster shoes Solange has worn in a row, solidifying the designer’s recent popularity.

Solange Knowles In Etro – Out In Dublin

Solange Knowles In Etro - Out In Dublin

Birthday girl Solange Knowles turned 27 in Dublin, Ireland yesterday, where she blew out the candles in high style.

Naturally, our reigning pretty-girl of prints took the opportunity to pattern the celebration with an Etro Spring 2013 blazer and shirt, daintily painted in Japanese-inspired blue flora and fauna.

Three thick rows of black, green and orange stripes boldly cut through the sleeves and bottom of the jacket, interrupting the lighter blooms.

Solange further raised the volume with a cropped pair of slick black track pants from Etro’s Fall 2013 collection. My birthday wish for her would have been that she wore the runway look in its entirety with the matching palazzo pants. She could have carried off the print explosion with aplomb.

We are accustomed to the songstress rocking a fab ‘fro, but she flaunted her new thigh-dusting rows of braids for her b-day.

Funky round shades and Pierre Hardy’s Trico-Dot pumps with orange ankle straps completed the look.

Who Wore Roberto Cavalli Better…Karolina Kurkova or Solange Knowles?

Who Wore Roberto Cavalli Better Karolina Kurkova or Solange Knowles

Karolina Kurkova wore a Roberto Cavalli printed blazer and blouse from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection with Marissa Webb leather pants and Ruthie Davis ‘Captiva’ pumps while making a guest appearance on The Today Show to promote ‘The Face’ back in March.

Two months later, Solange Knowles wore the full runway look styled with a Vionnet green clutch while attending the Belvedere Vodka ‘Walks Its Way’ Run D.M.C. party during Cannes Film Festival.

While I love the runway look, I would’ve preferred a narrower pant on Solange.

Karolina wins for me as I prefer her overall styling, from the unbuttoned blouse to the sexy leather pants.
