A singer/actress in her own right, the notoriety came from something else: Solange being Solange.
Naturalistas embraced her wholeheartedly when she chopped off her hair and started rocking a fab afro. Then she started making the best dressed list all over the country. We're not surprised that her Brooklyn apartment (yes, I said Brooklyn) featured in this month's issue of Elle magazine, is equally amazing. Bohemian chic. A fun, flirty place where her parties have become legendary.
So today we head to Brooklyn - my old stomping ground - to check out Solange's pad and some of my favorite Brooklyn haunts.
|Ms. Knowles, chatting it up with friends while chilling in her too chic living room. Fun art, juxtaposed next to a well tailored sofa in a solid grey. The coffee table steals the show in this room. Heck of a statement that tree slab makes.|
So, I see that black and white photo by Malick Sidibé, and I really just wanna dance. What a fun and simple piece of art that really sets the mood. And the pops of color from her Madewell blouse and Pierre Hardy shoes, sets the fun vibe for any party. Ditto for the eclectic table setting from Anthropologie.
Now, once you've gotten your party on with Ms. Knowles, there are some really fun places/things to do in the BK. And if you're there this weekend, then you better not miss the West Indian Day Parade.
