Solange Graces the Pages in Colorful ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Spread


Whether you love her music or just love her style, one has to admit that the youngest Knowles is doing her damn thing. Featured in the upcoming issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Solange supplies eye-popping shots as well as some good info on what’s going on in her life.

Titling her the “Cool Girl On The Block,” Solange’s feature in the popularized fashion magazine takes time to highlight where she is as an all around artist to date. Dressed in Moschino, Ralph Lauren, and a pretty pricey Chanel dress, the 27-year-old fashionista has always been drawn to pops of color and more interesting pieces.

Discussing things such as her past experiences with music and fashion, short stint as a wife, her 9-year-old son Jules and much more, the Charloette Cowles penned piece sheds much light on what it’s like to be the sibling to standout superstar Beyoncé. When asked about how it feels to follow in her footsteps, the eccentric sibling stated:

“My parents constantly tried to talk me out of being an artist. They had gone through the whole journey with my sister and just wanted me to have a normal teenage life.”

Although Solange didn’t quite follow the exact same steps as Queen B, we’d have to say that she’s done quite well following her own.

Solange Reveals New “Girls of Blaze” Puma Lookbook


While Beyoncé may be holding down the charts with her music, her baby sister Solange is out here shutting it down in other ways! As last year announced, the eccentric beauty was named the Creative Consultant and Art Director for the Puma brand, and she’s surely owning up to it!

Although the announcement was given only 3 months ago, it’s clear that Solange has been working hard because the lookbook for the new designs has officially been released. Overloaded with eye-popping colors and designs, the new campaign features women of different skin tones with hair reminiscent of its creator.

Shot by her boyfriend and talented director, Alan Ferguson, the campaign focuses on the sexiness that even women in sneakers can possess. When asked why she chose to sport a fresh pair instead of her stilettos, the multi-talented artist stated:

“When you’re walking from spot to spot, hopping in and out of cabs and the train, by mid-day the thing that suffers the most are your feet. Going out at night? Forget about it! So, I started to try to structure my outfits around a statement sneaker honestly out of practicality.”

Sounds good to us because no one wants a woman with jacked feet! Take a look at the behind the scenes video and a some shots from the campaign below!
