SOLANGE KNOWLES FOR FRENCH GLAMOUR

.

Glamour (France) magazine caught up with musician and dj whose style is becoming so obvious on the red carpet,fashion magazines and blogs in the last two years for an intimate sit down interview to be featured in it’s July 2012 issue. I for one wish Beyonce has her kind of style coupled with her personal fashion forward sense. That would've been an explosive style and fashion combo for Beyonce tho

GLAMOUR FRANCE: What’s the secret to your style?

SOLANGE KNOWLES: [My style is] very eclectic as I like to take risks, but I always cling to glamourous touches and classic details. I’m not necessarily inspired by magazines or fashion. I surf a lot on blogs and find it cool to see real style from real people. My travels also influence me. I always take lots of pictures, and then inject all those inspirations into my wardrobe, my home decor, or my makeup. And we can’t forget the icons: Diana Ross, Erykah Badu, Bjork, and Lauryn Hill.


GLAMOUR: How can one successfully create a good mixed and matched [wardrobe]?
Solange: If you have different prints, both pieces have to have the same fabric. Certain colors like violet and pink also work well with animal prints. And then, you have to create a certain harmony; I avoid mixing African patterns with Aztec prints, for example.


When you come to Paris, do you shop as well?

I prefer to pass the afternoon at Place des Vosges with a picnic and a book. I also like to get lost in Paris; last summer I rented an apartment in the 10th arrondissement, and I explored all the cool caf├ęs and bookstores in the area. I feel very safe in Paris. The metro is super easy to use and my son speaks French, so we always find our way around!

What beauty item do you use to boost your look?

I always wear mascara, and above all, I put on a flashy, matte lipstick. My favorite color is “Firecracker Orange Fire” by Rimmel.

Any new projects on the horizon?

I just finished my new album. It took me two years to write and compose it. It’s a new chapter in my life. I’m super excited!

Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks!
