It’s not often I get a style crush in the celeb world. There are trillions of gorgeous celebs looking pristine all the time but seriously, it’s all the same to me. Olivia Palermo? Yep totally gorgeous, so effortless and chic but *yawn* seen it all before. Alexa Chung? Mulberry made a handbag after you, we get it, you’re the shit, blah blah blah. Rita Ora? The “bad girl”, got the Bitching & Junkfood vibe going on, add a pair of grunge boots and she’s a crazy fashion rebel but *rolls eyes* Rihanna got there first. I’ve been so bored of celeb fashion – it’s nothing new. Once you set your eyes on Bryanboy everyone else just becomes so bland. Without Lady Gaga’s Philip Treacy addiction, celebville would be nothing.
But right now I am totally in love with Solange Knowles.
One of the reasons why I love her is because she is the complete opposite of Beyonce (sorry girls, I’ve never been a fan of this in your face girl power crap). To me, being an independent woman isn’t about belting songs out at the top of your lungs, giving it the finger click then releasing a perfume. It’s about being dignified. Solange is just that.
She’s so beautiful but she doesn’t even have to try. But the main reason why I love her so much is because her style is so much more progressive than her fellow red carpet stars. And that’s what makes her so sophisticated yet youthful at the same time.
Now more importantly, how do I get my mitts on her entire wardrobe? This needs to be done before I die. Solange – if you’re reading this please hire me as your stylist. I promise not to dress you up as a galactic cat (maybe)…..
