While our heads were turned looking to see what designer-of-the-moment Virgil Abloh would produce for our favorite low-priced, high-style housewares store, Ikea, another bound-to-be-coveted collaboration was in the works: Solange Knowles’ Saint Heron “cultural hub” also has a collab on deck with the retailer, and our…
When you think of Solange, what’s your first thought?
There are far too many to count, those who worship at the altar of Ms. Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter.
Go down a wormhole, but make it fashion. This was pretty much how I spent Tuesday night, watching video after video on Vogue’s YouTube channel, where all of our Met Gala faves were featured talking fashion, true confessions, and their takes on the night’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”
It’s a marvel to grow up alongside an artist, and even more wonderful to see the ways in which she or he continues to evolve and shape—and be shaped by—the world in turn. Solange is very much one of those artists for me: a woman whose journey has been far from predictable, whose gifts are a source of continual delight…
What happens when the reigning prince of fashion gets a request to dress Queen Bey for her takeover of one of the most famous music festivals in the world? You get some major fashion moments to go along with all of that amazing music.
It was the elevator fight seen around the world. In one corner you had Solange Knowles, and in the other you had Jay-Z, getting pummeled by Solange. And in another, you had Beyoncé fixing her dress after the 2014 Met Gala event.
Prince Phillip Mitchell, also known as Leon Mitchell, isn’t the sort of household name that Kanye West and Solange are. Still, if you listened to Kanye’s Graduation (the 2007 album went double platinum, so it’s safe to say that most of us have), Mitchell’s work will be familiar to you; his song “If We Can’t Be Lovers”…
Solange Knowles has spent much of the past year on the road, taking her acclaimed album A Seat at the Table and creating a space for black female art everywhere from the Hollywood Bowl to the Guggenheim Museum.
It’s sometimes disappointing when you have a favorite song off an album and construct the visuals in your head for the music video, but when the video premieres, you’re left disappointed and wondering “WTF?” And those are the exact sentiments many people on social media are sharing after watching the Solange-directed…
The year 2017 was a good year for black hair. Solange did the absolute most, impressing us with African-inspired avant-garde hairstyles. Then there was Erykah Badu—aka “Sara Bellum,” aka “Fat Belly Bella,” aka “Medulla Oblongata,” aka “Low Down Loretta Brown,” aka “Analogue Girl in a Digital World”—who pushed all the…
Solange and several other singers are the new faces of Calvin Klein’s “Our Family. #MyCalvins” campaign. The Grammy Award winner is being joined by Kelela, Dev Hynes, Caroline Polachek and Adam Bainbridge of Kindness.
One of these days, y’all will finally learn to leave black women’s hair alone. But today is apparently not that day, and Grazia UK is facing criticism from actress and all-around queen Lupita Nyong’o after, she says, the magazine edited out her hair “to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.”
Solange is making sure she does her own part to help support Houston’s Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts. The Houston native announced a special benefit concert to raise money for victims of the disastrous storm.
Melanin. Color. Texture. Funk. Freedom. Afropunk, the annual music and arts festival going since 2005, is not free anymore, but with all this gorgeousness and headliners like Raphael Saadiq and Solange, SZA and Soul II Soul, Anderson Paak and ThunderCat, any money paid is worth way more than two assholes in a ring.
Melanin was poppin’ during Tuesday night’s airing of Black Girls Rock! on BET. U.S Rep. Auntie Maxine Waters, Issa Rae, Solange Knowles and Yara Shahidi were among the women celebrated for their achievements at the annual award show created by Beverly Bond.
If I tried to review the entire BET Awards, which went on for a smooth four hours, I would be writing until Blue Ivy released her second greatest-hits collection. So in the interest of time, I’ll only cover where my prerogative leads me. Feel free to cue up select tracks from the catalog of the legendary Kang of R&B,…
More than 10,000 music lovers flocked to Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia Saturday for the annual Roots Picnic. This year’s festival marked the 10th anniversary of the unofficial summer launch party and kicked off Black Music Month. Stars of the past and present came out to celebrate the historic event.
Solange is gracing the cover of this month’s issue of Teen Vogue and penned a letter to her teenage self, describing life’s ups and downs and how to survive them.
Solange won her first Grammy Sunday night, but unless you were tuned into the Recording Academy’s Twitter account or social media, you probably wouldn’t have known that because the win wasn’t aired.
