It’s great to see mainstream media embracing Beyonce’s little sister finally. Solange is no longer ‘Beyonce’s sister’, she is now a face to know and a name to recognise in the fashion world especially, and in the last 2 years or more, one that has made having NATURAL hair even more fashionable. #Teamnaturalhairalltheway!
Apart from relaunching herself as a DJ(released two album, did some acting and dancing in her teenage years/ early 20s), the 25 year old mother(has an 8year old) is also a full fledged model – has graced the runway for Alberti Ferreti, signed to Next Models Agency and the spokeswoman for Carol’s Daughter(a natural hair and body brand in the US) and Rimmel US(Make-up Brand).
On Friday 16th of March, Solange leaped out of the pages of ES Magazine(a newspaper supplement for The London Evening Standard Magazine). These pictures are so beautifully captured, I had to bring them to your attention. Where do I start from – the LOCATION is absolutely great and works well with the ‘Model’ and the clothes – the use of colour, nothing over powering, Love the use of lighting and the little quirky accessories used to enhance her look(Sunglasses, Hat, Fur Stole). Her hair – I LOVE! Her make-up is the same all through. The props – the palm tree, the bowling balls, the bowling pins above her head, the bowling shoes – simple things really – a case of making the environment work well with the model. And of course, the ‘COOL FACTOR’ of the model – relaxed, playful and not over ‘posed’.
In these pictures, Solange wears the very latest looks from Prada, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Diane Von Furstenberg, Balenciaga and many more. Enjoy the pictures if you haven’t seen them yet. And if you have, you can share your thoughts.
