Solange Knowles seems to have a lot of fun with fashion. She’s definitely more experimental than her big sister Beyonce. While Queen Bey goes for Bodycon, Solange goes for the shock and statement pieces and she loves to dazzle in white.
I met her at the Cafe Royal hotel in London as she was the guest of honour at the launch of a new drinks brand. I couldn’t believe it when I saw her in a cape dress as I’d been looking at one at Very the same morning – the Lauren Pope white cape dress
Solange had her afro hair relaxed for the evening and she was a lot slimmer than I expected. She was tiny! She spent the evening in the VIP area chatting to TV presenter Zara Martin and singer Delilah. It was funny to see that Delilah had a similar idea to Solange and dressed in white. Delilah, a British singer, almost steals Solange’s spotlight, as she looks equally good in the colour. But there was something about Solange’s cool. composed face that tells you she knows she’s the star while Delilah was excited to meet her. What do you think?
It was a very civilised evening – nobody was allowed to ask about the elevator incident (when Solange kicked Jay-Z in an elevator after the Met Ball 2014). And across town at the Library bar in Covent Garden, there was another civilised celebrity drinks party. I spotted Lauren Pope from the Only Way is Essex and then I saw her co-star Ferne McCann, who wore a white jumpsuit. There must have been some secret celeb signal to all wear white that night! What do you think of Ferne’s jumpsuit?
Even if you didn’t go out, you’d have seen white on the TV as Alesha Dixon wore it to perform on Britain’s Got Talent. She nailed it and I’m so happy for her. She earns her place on the BGT judging panel as she has talent in her singing voice and in putting an outfit together.
Who do you think wore white the best? My money’s on Solange as she’s not afraid to experiment.
