Its fantastic to see Solange growing into her fashion boots and I must say she is filling them up nicely. In the 10th year anniversary edition of Complex magazine (A magazine for 20-something cool guys driven by style, sports, music, games, gear and girls), Solange is interviewed and featured in a few pictures. The pictures hit the net just last week and I must say, I am loving her look. Soon, we’ll see Solange on the cover of Vogue(US), Harpers Bazaar and maybe before then on Elle (US) only once its discovered her name and face can drive magazine sales of course.
Back to the images you are about to feast your eyes on, proud to say she was styled by a Peju Famojure for this shoot, so no wonder there is the use of Ankara in one of these lovely pictures. Solange is currently an epitome of COOL. The stylist has gone with the PRINTS ON PRINTS trend and it works brilliantly for Solange’s quirky cool look. And its like the more quirky an item is, the better for our Ms Knowles especially with her fabulous Natural hair (which I just want to steal off her head). These looks created are easily achievable which is why I favour them strongly and am particularly in love with the Ankara skirt(few pictures down).

There is also a behind the scenes and highlights of her interview in the video below. There is a just a certain simplicity about her look and yet strong enough to get noticed.
