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.

    I admire her daring aesthetic but I don’t really click with her style. The boldness doesn’t really work for me.

    Noone does prints and color like Solange. She’s a total fashionista. It seems like her style is rubbing of on her big sister too.

    I love her style!
    Who would have thought this 3 or 4 years ago?

    Agree completely.. love her bold choices

    It’s been very interesting watching her looks. The woman was killing this year with many knock out looks.

    A new found love for Solange, this is well deserved! I found that even if we don’t like Solange’s looks, we give her credit because she is never boring, always new and fresh and taking fashion forward risks. Good on her!!

    Her style is amazing. I love a woman of color who embraces bold prints and bright lips. We were made to rock it.

    She’s got a very distinctive style and is never boring. Great choice.

      None of her looks got recognized on BDOTY list unfortunately. (As I already wrote), I’d rather see her breathtaking white Rubin Singer gown with long draping over the shoulders instead of Gwyneth’s Oscars look.

        I nominated her for my BDOTY for her white gown !!! so agree i love Gwyneth’s look, but Solange’s better for me too !
        Love this award, can’t wait to see what she will bring us for 2013.

    It’s always something new and interesting with her, and I love that. She’s not afraid of rocking bright colors or prints. Also, her makeup (lip colour mostly) is always flawless.

      Totally agree.

    Well-deserved, h2t. Can sure work a print like nobody’s business.

    Amen to this post. Well deserved! 😀
