The Business of Solange Knowles


Just as the Olsen Twins Mary Kate and Ashley made it clear they want to be recognized as distinctive individuals, Solange Knowles dares you to keep her in her older’s sister shadow.

As the fashion’s world budding muse, the youngest Knowles boldly stands out on her own. She embodies a cool eccentricity that is visually punctuated by her natural mane (whether out in an explosive ‘fro or coiled in trailing tresses) and her sartorial panache for mixing designer prints as well as music records begs you to watch and listen.

Once a backup dancer for her sister’s (that would be superstar Beyoncé) R&B/Pop group Destiny’s Child, the Sol-Angel has notable notches in her belt that’s worth running down. Although, she waves off the responsibility of “role model,” she sure makes business moves worth looking up to.–Rachel Francois and Niki McGloster
