Solange Knowles at the H&M Studio Fall 2014 Show

Posted on February 27, 2014

We’re pretty sure only Solange could make this look work.

The shape, to our eyes, is kind of ugly, the print is a hard one to work without breaking it up a little, and the jewelry choices seem kind of random.  But damn, if this lady doesn’t have poise out the wazoo. LIVING for the Donna Summer hair. But get your fabulousness inside, girl. You look like you’re freezing.

Wazoo is a highly technical fashion term, by the way. Anna Wintour says it all the time.

  • She has gorgeous legs, but this is another look that would be improved by skinny black pants. Or keep the shorts and put a white cotton vest top on and wear it in summer.

  • RussellH88

    I think it works because she’s making it kind of 70’s fabulous, isn’t she? I’m not familiar enough with the 70’s to be confident in that statement.

    • I’m almost certain Whitney Houston wore this with bike shorts in the mid 80s.

  • Pablo

    I actually don’t like the hair, I would have preferred a simpler afro

    • Sally Spannagle

      I do miss her smaller natural looking hair from a while ago

    • NC_Meg

      The hair is giving me a Roseanne Rosannadanna vibe. It makes me a little sad because I usually love her hair.

    • kimmeister

      I can’t see that mushroom cap shape without thinking of the cover of Lady Gaga’s “The Fame Monster” album.

  • Leah Elzinga

    that makeup is ROUGH. I seriously can not see past it. Though if I were too try I would actually say it’s not terrible, but the crucifix was a bridge too far. I actually this outfit, with those shoes and hair, no jewelry and the “clean” face that looks great on her could’ve had made this work.

    • wisenhar

      Sorry to be pedantic, but that’s a cross, not a crucifix. A crucifix has the body of Jesus on it.

      • DTLAFamilies

        Filed under “shit I learned today.”

    • kimmeister

      It’s a great lip color on her, though.

  • jw_ny

    I’m not sure even Solange is making it work. Get rid of that flounce at the bottom of the top, and I’d like it more. Love the sleeves, shorts, her legs (!), and shoes.

  • Ginger

    Love the whole head and the jewelry. Those clothes should be burned (although I’m sure they’d emit some type of ozone-depleting gasses). She really does have a fabulous style all the way around though.

  • Janet B

    Not really a February evening in Paris look.

  • Anna

    The top is straight up grotesque, especially when viewed from the side. Love the hair and that blue necklace though.

    • demidaemon

      So true. The proportions are all wrong, especially paired with the shorts.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I can’t appreciate this top, not even a little bit. Neck up is fabulosity, the rest is pretty bad.

  • @Biting Panda

    I appreciate the solidarity her peeps are showing, by also dressing as if it is perfectly fine to be walking around bare legged and breezy, but when your body guard is in a massive, fur lined jacket and gloves, it just make you and your crew look a wee bit foolish. Pssst, Solange, we like coat & boot porn too, dazzle us that way.

  • Claudia Fernandes

    help! what does wazoo means??? (kudos to Solange anyway)

    • Alexander Peterhans

      Backside, basically.

      • Claudia Fernandes

        thanks! I did’t thought that could be it 🙂

  • tereliz

    I think the cross is one bling too much, but otherwise, I think she looks great. She’s got the moxie to convince you she’s fabulous, and who am I to disagree?

    • Jacob Bowen

      Me too! I think it could be fine with something else but WHY COVER UP THAT BEAUTIFUL NECKLACE!?!?!?

  • ashtangajunkie

    I hate this outfit, but she is inexplicably pulling it off.

  • SugarSnap108

    My wazoo is frozen just looking at her. Her hair is glorious, and that blue necklace is fabulous.

  • decormaven

    This is a off the rack look that’s elevated to fab with that eye-catching jewelry and the luminosity of Ms. Knowles. If anyone else wore it, I wouldn’t give it a second glance.

    • Sobaika

      I can see it on Rihanna, but that’s about it. She might even make some choices to elevate it, now that I think about it.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    Maybe she didn’t want to suck it in all night? I like the print/vibe, but this is just too big in my eyes

  • >LIVING for the Donna Summer hair – YES.

  • ballerinawithagun

    One piece or the other, but not as an ensemble. That top with skinny white jeans (even those sandals would work then) or the shorts with a white gauzy linen top would be very Capri, no? That lapis necklace is fabulous and should not be worn with any other distracting necklaces. I’m intrigued by the back of the jacket showing up in photo #4.

  • SewingSiren

    Now that is style. She can wear things that aren’t particularly good looking and make them look good.

  • Alfred Cox

    So gorgeous. Only a look a chick like Solange can pull off, but man oh man, what a look!

  • sagecreek

    Kate Hudson is weeping in a corner somewhere.

  • Shawn EH

    She’s doing her thing. I’d say amateurs need to realize she’s a professional on a closed track.

  • Vanessa Reyes

    Love the blue agate necklace.

    • Constant Reader

      Me too! It’s really the only thing about this look I do like.

  • boweryboy

    Hair, make-up, and that giant blue necklace are the only things I like.

  • Ashleigh

    Roseanne Rosanadana!! “Not enough violins on television!!!”

    • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

      That was Emily Litella….

  • Danielle


  • elemspbee

    The hair, the face–keeper. what an ugly outfit though. and those darn naked shoes.

  • Betsy

    I don’t think it technically should work, but damn if it doesn’t! I am getting Diana Ross “I’m Coming Out.” For me, she is more interesting than her sister and I want to know more!

  • d4divine

    The woman OWNS it with sass and elegance…huge points for that alone. Werk Solange Knowles with that Roseann Roseanna Danna hairdo!

  • Jaeda Laurez

    I hate individual things (the hair, mostly), but all of it together is a “look” with a capital L, and subsequently, I love it!

  • Imasewsure

    Again with the sternum plunge but this one is workable because of the necklace (which is cool but ugly). Love the look overall though. Definitely for Solange but I think it could work for others too (those with appropriate levels of sass – and one more button up top)

  • Alyssa

    Love the blue necklace. Don’t like that the cuff on the shorts appears to be ripped on one side…doesn’t make the outfit seem very durable, if it can’t even handle being worn for a couple hours. Also, love the lip color.

  • Garcia Loca

    Solange is 10x more stylish, beautiful, and charismatic than her big sis. The discrepancy between talent and success befuddles me.

  • Morales Mike

    Its a race to see who plays Donna Summer first, Solange or Kelly Rowland. I think either could do her justice. They are certainly able to channel her pretty well.

    • lamh36

      I actually see Solange playing a young Diana Ross in any biopic. I know that Da Boss Ms Ross is one of Beyonce’s idols, but Solandg has just the right look for TBT Diana Ross. It’s the big eyes I think

  • AnaRoW

    I was thinking Roseanne Roseannadanna rather than Donna Summer but okay.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Me, too! If that isn’t Roseanne Roseannadanna hair I don’t know what is.

  • MilaXX

    I want that blue necklace in my life.! Love the entire look but I’m not sure the cross pendant quite works.

  • kmk05

    I don’t know, Uncles. That top has one too many flounces (the sleeves AND the bottom? I mean, why?) and it’s all too blousy to my untrained eyes. Love the jewellery, the makeup is okay, but I wish her hair was less triangular (or maybe if she changed the middle parting).

  • Kate4queen

    It’s kind of all over the place and totally distracting but she somehow makes it work… impressed!

  • Clash D

    LOL I think she looks amazing. She’s so Retro fab.

  • marlie

    No one else could make this work. NO ONE. I salute you, Solange! (seriously… that HAIR!)

  • quiltrx

    Sorry, this looks like a PR entry from one of those contestants who doesn’t know how to sew. It looks like a bunch of mistakes camouflaged by a loud print.

  • Cheryl

    I like it. Possibly because I like her. She’s just so much cooler and hipper than her glammy sister. Love that big necklace.

  • Yes! Love the Donna Summer hair!

  • Trickytrisha

    Sassy, close to classy, and oh-so not Beyonce. Brava!

  • sienna elm

    I NEED that blue necklace!! – and I think I want to like her friend’s floral dress/jacket thing, but can’t see enough of it to be sure.

  • J. Preposterice

    this is one of those outfits where the attitude of the wearer carries it. she looks like she’s posing for a cover girl ad, attitude-wise, which instantly adds, well, easy-breezy to the whole thing.

  • stubbornthoughts

    All of these pieces seem to offend my eyes, but I have nothing wrong to say about how it looks on Solange.

  • kat89

    Is it not winter in France? WTF with the shorts and sandals? I mean she looks great, but it’s REALLY not seasonally appropriate.

  • gsk241

    LOL! I saw Cleopatra-Queen-of-the-Nile hair. Fabulous either way, though.

  • macwell

    She has become quite the fashion icon at this point huh? Good for her!

  • Jacob Bowen

    I’m sure that this has been answered before (and this is in NO way a slam) but does she do anything besides look fabulous and walk around getting her picture taken? I mean, I would TOTALLY be (jealous) fine with that, but I would also LOVE to support anything else she does cause she is STUNNING and clearly has a sense of style.

    • demidaemon

      She ‘s also a particularly talented singer, though nowhere near as mainstream (and advertised) as her sister.

  • I’m not firmly convinced she’s making any of this work, with the exception of her (as usual, incredible) hair and poise.

  • FridaStaire

    It’s a Cleopatra afro, with lapis! What’s not to love?

  • Not the hottest dress (romper?) ever, and the shoes are kind of blah. But the jewellery and especially the HAIR make it. Rock it, Solange!

  • MaggieMae

    Nah. She doesn’t look bad, but it’s not coming together for me. Even on Solange.

  • Lilyana_F

    Oh no, I think I’m the only one who really dislikes the hair, But I sort of dig everything else, because that’s the right attitude to make it work.
