The more we know about Solange Knowles the more she seems like a normal down-to-earth girl that we’d want to hang out with. In a not creepy way, we swear. Last night she attended the CFDA awards with one of our other favorite people in fashion, Jenna Lyons. And since Solange wasn’t even wearing J.Crew (she was wearing an awesome yellow paillette-covered Marni number) we’re pretty sure Solange and Jenna just came together just because they’re buddies. But we had to ask, of course.
Fashionista: So, first, the requisite question, what are you wearing tonight?
Solange: I’m wearing Marni and Missoni shoes and I probably should not have eaten two bags of barbecue chips before I got in it, nothing I can do about that now. We actually got here a little early and I was in the car and I so hungry! So we stopped.
Next very important question, what brand?
Kettle, gotta do kettle.
So you and Jenna are buds–why do you click with her and J.Crew?
I mean, we’re friends first. I of course love what she does at J.Crew. I just think it embodies my style in that it has so much color and texture and character but it’s classic with great tailoring and I think if you have one you have to have the other. And she’s just so freakin’ cool. What else can I say?
You have such a great sense of style and a good grasp on fashion–would you ever dabble in design yourself?
I like that word. I think I could possibly dabble.
Solange, we think you should!
