Solange’s name has been in everybody’s mouth since the infamous elevator incident involving herself, Beyonce & Jay Z. However, not all of what has been said is negative. Somehow Solange has risen from the ashes like a phoenix and her popularity seems to have surged. I, for one, am unfamiliar with her music: I have always known her as Beyonce’s sister or the cheerleader from that Bring It On film (which I used to be obsessed with when I was younger). In recent years, Solange has emerged as a sort-of fashion icon with her personal style being commendable. She is unafraid of bold prints, bright colours and all around avant garde style which makes her an inspiration, especially to me as a very minimalist, borderline boring fashion-wise girl. Her wedding photos, complete with a wedding party all in white, were straight out of a high fashion editorial – except they were not staged, that is just her life.
This month, Solange attended Art Basel in Miami. Art Basel is a show for modern and contemporary art with many exhibitions and chances for collectors to, well, up their collections. However, all sorts of people attend (mainly the rich and famous) and it really becomes a showcase, not just for the actual art, for the clothes that the guests are wearing. Although it is an event for the art world, fashion and music people manage to creep in. Solange was probably the best dressed person there. She wore all types of colours (my favourites being the teal and citric yellow) and some hands down brilliant looks. Even if you are not a fan of Solange as a person or an artist, her incredible style as of late is undeniable.
