May 8, 2018 Runway To Red Carpet

Solange Knowles In Iris van Herpen Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Before attending the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City, Solange Knowles polled her fans as to which of five looks she should wear.

Now, I would have never put this avant-garde Iris van Herpen Fall 2012 Couture in the same category as tonight’s ‘Heavenly Bodies’ theme, as the PVC-sculpted look was far more galactic and space-agey to me.

But, even despite the equally edgy over-the-knee boots, Solange molded the look into an image with religious undertones, given the addition on the nun’s habit and face halo.

Did it work for you?

    she posted four looks on her instagram page for her fans to choose,and this one is my least favorite.
    Well,you can’t always get what you want.

  2. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    i agree. I preferred the white one.

  3. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    IKR?that white cape design was so angelic and regal…should’ve been perfect for the theme

    Forgive me but I can’t resiste! This is a giant cockroach!

  7. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Looks like a big Vag.

  8. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    I’m white as snow, and couldn’t agree more with you.

  9. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    The power of the black pussy!!! She knows it and it’s a reminder to those that think they are in control. We, Black women, have always and will always be in the spiritual control. It’s a code for us that knows. If you think differently and disagree, it’s cuz you ain’t in the clit(click) and rightly so.

  10. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Click (clique) and “knows” were done in purpose btw.

  11. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    This dress looks like an octopus. Her face is stunning though.

  12. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Always playing on her own league. Amazing.

  13. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Out of the options she posted on Twitter, this was one of my least favorite options. It’s a shame that she didn’t go with the white caped gown.

  14. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    One of the few times in which I’ve actually liked her.

  15. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    she looks like an alien, not feeling it for this theme.

  16. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    I agree!

  17. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    LOVE. She managed to be unique on a red carpet with a lot of similarity, she hit the theme, and she looks amazing. Plus the combination of the do-rag and the halo is stunning and epic.

  18. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    No for me. Looks like an octopus as said below and throwing on a headpiece does not a crazy look be in theme. I agree with Vizual Ninja on this one.

  19. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Same here.

  20. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Wish she’d gone with the white dress on her Twitter.

  21. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    The whole get-up is nice but i like the dress on the model better.

  22. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Now this is what I’m talking about. Playing to her strengths and on theme.

  23. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Love this neck up. She could’ve done better than this dress

  24. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Love this!
    Leave it Solange to march on the beat of her own drums.
    In a sea of white, red, capes and gold she stands out while still being on theme.

  25. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Hm. She definitely should of gone with the white dress. Love the headpiece.
    I love this designer but this was not the right theme to wear her. It looks more a theme of ‘another planet’ or the Star Wars premiers.

  26. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Doesn’t work for me.

  27. Guest April 8, 2019 at 11:51 pm #

    Ahahaha!! You win!!!!!

  28. Leandra May 9, 2018 at 11:41 am #

    This IS a gigantic vagina. I guess the Virgen Mary connotations brings it to the theme. It is a very well thought look.

  36. CreoleLady May 8, 2018 at 7:49 am #

    No. Hideous. Moreover. slapping a halo on doesn’t make this on theme.

  37. Jas May 8, 2018 at 5:59 am #

    I’m sorry to be that person, but all I can see is a vagina…
