Solange Knowles In Marni – 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Solange Knowles was a burst of bright colour on the red carpet at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

Not one to shy away from a bold hue, Solange stood out in a white-and-yellow Marni Spring 2012 dress.

From a distance, the v-neck shift looks like a classic tweed, but the patterned dress is actually created by large paillettes.

Adding a funky touch, Solange accessorizes with a bold patterned Marni clutch and knit Missoni sandals with clear straps and a cylindrical heel.

Her signature fro and bronzed makeup complete the look.

    Solange: lucky girl. I’ve been craving about those Marni shoes for weeks and she probably got theme for free.
    Nice look as always

    I like her style way more than Beyonce’s. It’s modern, not try-hard, and unique. This dress looks fantastic on her, and the accessories are very fun to look at.

    Love the clutch! Just wish that the interesting dress wasn’t so shapeless around the waist and wasn’t so low-cut. I don’t like the shoes either.

    I am in love with her recent red carpet style. So colorful and on point. BDOTW 🙂

    Ugh. Solange mixes and matches colors and patterns so well it is almost disgusting.

    I’m always literally salivating over her red carpet looks.

    She´s just so cool. I think she´s so much cooler than her sister!

    I usually don’t like Marni very much, but in this case I love Solange’s look. The dress is a lot better than the runway one.
    I also love her shoe choice, but I’m not too keen on the clutch, that’s the only thing I would change.

    I love the way Solange puts things together, this is a big win in my book, love the way she accessorizes.

    I love this!!!! What great accessories… I think Olivia Palermo might have some competition in that dept.

    Love everything. The accessories really add something.

    Love it. Refreshing; always fab acessories

    This dresss is so pretty in real life .When I saw it in the store I did not recognise from the runway picture. I adore the shoes but not sure if I would wear it with this dress- they go but the dress is so powerful that I would let it speak for itself. But I am nit picking.

    Solange Nailed it with this look love everything. She has been perfection in her recent looks and is easily a fashion icon!!! She keeps things interesting and doesn’t conform to any fashion rules or standards. Can’t wait for what she brings with her new album.

    Can you imagine how hard it must be to stand out if your sister is Beyonce? She looks fab, and has suceeded in carving out her own strong identity and look. I love this look.

    The dress looks amazing on her but I’m not a fan of the clutch and the shoes.

  18. Francois B June 5, 2012 at 15:18 #

    Wow she looks GREAT! I love the whole look from head to toe!! This dress gives her the best fit ever and even makes me forget the Stephane Rolland fail

    I love everything about this look. Solange is so interesting to watch on the red carpet. I can’t wait to see more of her!

  20. Alina June 5, 2012 at 15:16 #

    I love it. I love her.

  21. priyanka June 5, 2012 at 15:15 #

    i love this on her! i like how she’s transitioned from really crazy outfits to a more subtle, but still attention-grabbing style.

  22. rebecca o June 5, 2012 at 15:11 #
