Everyone knows I love Beyonce, but I also ❤ her younger sister Solange. She is also very talented. She is a classically trained dancer who started out very young as a backup dancer for Destiny's Child. She DJ's. She enjoys acting and songwriting. She co-wrote Beyonce hits such as "Upgrade You" and "Get Me Bodied". She is passionate about being a musician most. Her album "Sol-Angel & The Hadley St. Dreams" was inspired by her listening to old records by great artists such as Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye. The album is a mix between a '60's ad '70s vibe with a modern touch. She had the oppurtunity to work with ah-mazing producers: Pharell, Q-Tip and Raphael Saadiq to name a few. She is currently working on her new album which will have an 80's vibe! Can't wait until it comes out!
While she adores her big sis Beyonce, she does not like when people compare her to B. She definitely has her own unique style and she stands up for her beliefs. Last year she cut off her hair to prove that there is more to her than just her hair. She marches to the beat of her own drum and doesn't follow the masses.
Recently Refinery 29 caught up with Solange Knowles for an interview about her style. She is inspired by traveling across the world and various cultures. She loves to incorporate looks from different decades into her wardrobe. I LOVE her style! Like me, she loves color, prints, and heels! She likes to mix high and low priced pieces and she likes nail art.
Here are some pics from the shoot:
Not only is she looked at for her style but she proved that although you may face criticism or obstacles in life, perserverance and dedication will get you through. She had her adorable son Jules at a young age but didn’t let that stop her from reaching her goals and achieving her dreams.
