  • I think she looks great here.  IN!

  • MarissaLG

    Very pretty. Love the shoes too. 

  • I love it – I think she looks great!

  • Overall, she looks great but I don’t like the lipstick and the shoes look like an accident waiting to happen.

    • kimmeister

      Are the ankle straps supposed to be floating around her ankles like that?

  • Imasewsure

    Damn! I was so ready to love this and I think the dress looks dumpy on her. Love the hair… love the shoes

    •  Love the hair, love the shoes, love the print but… that looks like a flight attendant uniform. I think a different neckline would save it.

  • Love this look from head to toe! So glad Solange brought back her fro. 🙂

  • It’s a fabulous dress and totally in her wheelhouse, but it kind of makes her waist disappear. She looks a bit blocky.

    Still, I can’t imagine another ladystar pulling this look off, so that’s pretty awesome.

    • Ceur

       As a natural square-waister I’m sick of people always expecting women to have a defined waist all the time. I think she looks amazing.

  • Kenisha Hill Phillips

    *wrests the orange lipstick away and hurls it into the river*

  • calimon

    I think pulling her hair back, in some fashion, would improve the look. But she really is a lovely woman and can hold a style all her own, even in the shadow of her sister’s limelight. 

  • j_anson

    I like this a lot better than the previous crazy print attempt.

  • shes looking great. love the dress, love the shoes, love the lip-colour!
    her legs look a little short, but i think its the prespective.

  • gabbilevy

    Love the dress, the shoes, the look, but a couple quibbles:

    The lipstick isn’t working for her coloring, and, I’m not an expert on natural hair, so I’m probably going to get this wrong but–I think she needed to tease the ‘fro more(like she’s worn it in the past) or let the curls form more (like Kelly Rowland does). It’s sort of sitting in an awkward no-man’s land between the two.

    • MilaXX

       Pretty sure that’s a wig

      • kitu4

        Probably I don’t think her hair is that long yet and she does wear a lot of wigs, but it does seem more stretched out than usual so that could be it either way I’m with gabbi its no-man’s land and flat at the top so it almost looks like she set it and then it just feel into some kind of mess.

  • Those aren’t so much shoes as they are torture devices.  Why don’t they just skip right to the foot-binding?

  • Rand Ortega

    Welcome back, gorgeous Solange, to Planet Cool from Conventionaland. The world has returned to how it should be. Ahhhh…

  • Perfect. Stunning dress. 

  • I feel like I’ve gone from being annoyed by her getups to totally in love with them? I honestly think that having a baby somehow knocked some style in her because hooooo boy looking at those archives I wince, and yet… in her latest music video i.just.die.every.frame.

    • MilaXX

       Huh? She had her baby at 17.

  • homofascist

    This is all kinds of fierceness!

  • Joyce VG

    I like this a lot! The shoes are crazy hot. 

  • Sara__B

    I like this, even though the pattern is over-the-top. Solange is — as usual — stylish, unpredictable, and fun.

  • MilaXX

    I like this look, but I refer her hair over this wig.

  • Jackie4g

    Adorable dress, shoes that are trying too hard and just end up looking contrived. They also look hideously uncomfortable, just the opposite of a cute little dress that will allow the wearer to enjoy a meal! She’s a lovely looking lady.

  • unbornfawn

    She looks great. Don’t like the lipstick color here. Those shoes. OUCH!

  • bertkeeter

    Oy vey…that’s a lot of “Start of David”…dahlinks!

  • TieDye64

    Looking pretty good, but those shoes look like they were made for Barbie feet.

  • librarygrrl64

    Is that a belt or just piping? If the former, I feel like it needed a wider belt, a tighter belt, or no belt at all. This makes her look very dumpy, and she’s not. Love the print, though.

  • Love it. She’s been turning it out lately.

  • Carla_Charlton

    Fabulous! Her hair looks so great and that dress really suits her.  The shoes she’s wearing look much better with that dress than the ones on the model -and they’re flattering to her.  I wish I looked like that….

  • AnnPopovic

    Those shoes are majestic.  Wish the dress was just a touch shorter. Orange  is for food.

  • Ilove this girl’s style

  • J. Preposterice

    zomg.  solange!  i love your dress!  and your shoes!  and your hair!  I JUST LOVE YOU COMPLETELY IRRATIONALLY, I ADMIT IT.

  • I’m sorry, are the colors on Solange’s version MIGRATING?!

  • That lipstick color is appalling.

  • dickylarue

    Every time you guys post a pic of Solange Knowles I wonder ,”who the f**k is Solange Knowles & why should we care?” Then I googled her to learn she’s Beyonce’s sister, was in a direct to video sequel of Bring It On and has 3 albums just in case any other readers were wondering who she was & why she appears here so often like I do.

  • RzYoung


  • decormaven

    I’d like a closer look at the chain tote she has perched on her finger. The print design is so strong on this dress, I think it needs a wider belt to match the intensity. The shoes are definitely working. It’s a nice little play on a simple dress done up in a complex fabric pattern design.

  • SewingSiren

    Beyonce should take a page from her sister’s style book.

  • MoHub

    Not bad, but belt too high, boobs too low. Needs to ditch the belt and get a better bra.

  • I hate her lipstick, as usual, but everything else, i love. 

  • MightyMarshal

    I feel like she wears some iteration of the same thing over and over. Bored.

  • Love that coral lip

  • crash1212

    Dress does not flatter, it even makes the stick-insect model look thick. Love her hair and makeup, though.

  • :grabby hands: I want that dress.  Now.  THAT’S how you do allover lace without it being lingerie/tacky folks

  • Didn’t she war the same designer last week? Or is it just similar in style? I really like this. 

  • Anathema_Device

    Totally covet that dress. Not digging the orange lipstick, but that’s a minor quibble. She looks great.

  • B_C_J

    I am in the minority but I do believe that the print makes this dress look clownish and the  silhouette can be found on the clearance rack at any department store. The orange lipstick is not helping this look at all.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    She is stunningly beautiful.  Love the dress and the shoes.

  • maggiemaybe

    She just looks more and more adorable every time I see her. What’s up with that?

  • Slayed it
