Solange Knowles is a Famous Lady We Cover a Bunch here on Fashionista, because not unlike her fellow FLWCABs (Diane Kruger, Cate Blanchett, Lupita Nyong'o, etc.), Solange isn't shy about wearing whatever the hell she wants — to great effect. A bright red cape dress, worn with a slick of matching eyeshadow? She pulled it off. A simple, elegant black-and-white Balmain number? Yeah, that happened. Solange's look might be utterly original, but as she proved Wednesday, it's not always unattainable.

She arrived at the launch dinner for Reed Krakoff's just-dropped Kohl's collection wearing a dress and a bag from the collaboration. Priced at $55.50 and $59.25, respectively, they looked as high-end as any piece Solange might ordinarily don for an appearance. Whether that's more of a testament to Krakoff's design prowess or due to a sprinkling of Solange's inherent magic, I'm not sure; at the very least, she was definitely the right "It" girl to invite to this event.
