We don’t know about you guys, but we absolutely loved this look.
It’s cray, of course, but that is not only what we expect from Miss Solange, it also happens to be the one style she does better than almost anyone else.
We’re feeling the trend for pleated metallics, so we were inclined to like this no matter what. We’ll grant you that the silhouette is a bit much, but we maintain it’s exactly the kind of thing she handles really well.
Quibbles: Not loving the shoe choice at all.
And while we figure it’s of a piece with the Earth Mother thing all the Knowles ladies were doing, the clean face doesn’t pair all that well with all that gold and glitter.
But we love the hair and love the gown. It’s pure Solange in so many ways, but we think she’s clearly nodding to her sister’s message and vision (not to mention stagewear) by dressing herself all in gold but avoiding any comparisons or me-too accusations by keeping it in her own style. It’s a great, bold, unique look that suits her above all others.
