From her music and unique sense of style Solange is always on my radar. I was floored when I saw these images from her Glamour France spread for July 2012! She looks amazing! The hair. The pattern mixing. The shoes. I LOVE IT ALL!
Whats your style secret?
Solange: [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.
What beauty item do you use to boost your look?
Solange: I always wear mascara, and above all, I put on a flashy, matte lipstick. My favorite color is “Firecracker Orange Fire” by Rimmel.
I love that she’s a blog surfer like myself. Anytime I read an interview like this it makes me want to go out and shoot street style and look for inspiration in my surroundings. Read the rest of her interview translation over at The Fashion Bomb Daily.
