Solange Knowles marches to the beat of her own drum and her fashion style confirms just that! The RIMMEL Cosmetics & Carol’s Daughter spokeswoman posed for an array of styles in the 2012 July issue of GLAMOUR FRANCE magazine. It’s no secret this fashionista loves to mix prints and her vintage chic/sassy conservative photo shoot is proof. The singer, songwriter, DJ and actress rocks looks from Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Philip Lim, Diane Von Furstenberg and more, check out excerpts of her interview:
Her style? [My style is] very eclectic as I like to take risks, but I always cling to glamourous touches and classic details. I’m not necessarily inspired by magazines or fashion. I surf a lot on blogs and find it cool to see real style from real people. My travels also influence me. I always take lots of pictures, and then inject all those inspirations into my wardrobe, my home decor, or my makeup. And we can’t forget the icons: Diana Ross, Erykah Badu, Bjork, and Lauryn Hill.
Shop with Beyonce’? I do 90% of my shopping online and now my whole family does the same! From time to time, though, my sister and I will pop by Opening Ceremony in New York and spend a few hours there.
When in Paris, does she shop? I prefer to pass the afternoon at Place des Vosges with a picnic and a book. I also like to get lost in Paris; last summer I rented an apartment in the 10th arrondissement, and I explored all the cool cafés and bookstores in the area. I feel very safe in Paris. The metro is super easy to use and my son speaks French, so we always find our way around!
Beauty item must-have? I always wear mascara, and above all, I put on a flashy, matte lipstick. My favorite color is “Firecracker Orange Fire” by Rimmel.
New projects? I just finished my new album. It took me two years to write and compose it. It’s a new chapter in my life. I’m super excited!
