I love that she’s not known as “just Beyonce’s sister” anymore. From Singer, Song-writer, DJ, she can now add Rimmel London, a major cosmetic house to her list of wins. She’s taking it nice and easy in building herself a solid name. Nice one, busy lady.
“Julez for Japan” was inspired by the recent tragic earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. Daniel Julez J. Smith, Solange’s 6 year old son was saddened by the devastating footage he witnessed of the catastrophe and after a series of questions and conversations with mommy-deary, he decided he wanted to contribute in some way. Very sweet of him, don’t you think. This was done using a scan of his watercolor interpretation of the Japanese flag – you can see him at work above.

So inspired, I’m thinking of getting these Solange braids, I hope they work with me / on me… wanna take a break from my usual look. It’s just hair I know, but me and my stubborn self are taking too friggin long deciding if I should get
these or not.
I don’t want to look grungy, scruffy and unkept, ya know… Totally understandable…
So, yup… I do believe I’m going ahead. Flip, why exactly am I doubting that they’ll look good on me before I’ve even tried them?! Besides, braids suit every black girl. Right?
Came across this online mag, you know, doing my regular trotting around these parts. FashizBlack profiled Solange Knowles who I am an avid lover of, and she looks stunning in this African inspired shoot.
some insight into her style evolution
How’s this head-wrap?! Love it.
This was for their September/October 2010 issue.
