The Other Sister

Solange Knowles (younger sister of Beyonce Knowles) recently had a HAUTE photo shoot with Honey Mag.  This is her first photo shoot since retiring her weaved tresses for a chopped off, natural look.  Her fans (including myself) weren't very receiving of her going au natural at first.

These were the first pictures of the drastic cut that made her a Trending Topic on Twitter.  I have to admit that I wasn't feeling this look "on her" at all either.  Her fans on Twitter had a field day with all the negative jokes and comments about her hair.

Shortly thereafter these pictures surfaced:

She and her sister Beyonce Knowles promoting the Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection in Tokyo.

 This was a much better look for Solange.  She looks gorgeous! She looks much more polished and the cut makes her facial features stand out more. It definitely shows her natural beauty. The side part is just adorable.  I immediately took back all of the negative comments I made about her at first.

Now, on to the HAUTE photo shoot and she did for Honey Mag:

faux fur coat, Topshop; tank, American Apparel; necklace, Custo Barcelona; leggings, Christopher Kane for Topshop; rings, Lia Sophia; shoes, Walter Steiger

sweater, Topshop; boots, Cesare Paciotti

blouse, vintage Versace; leggings, Custo Barcelona; all jewelry, Lia Sophia; shoes, Walter Steiger

I enjoyed all of the colorful images from this shoot. She definitely has a more eclectic style (and style period) than her older sister.  She's also more outspoken, a characteristic that I love about her.  Be sure to check out her candid interview and the rest of the cute, artsy images here.
