Look Of The Day: Solange Knowles In Boxing Kitten Resort Frock

The Chic Report adores Solange Knowles and wardrobe choices. She was spotted poolside and on the red carpet this weekend while Dj-ing in TAO in Las Vegas. I love the new Boxing Kitten Resort Collection tam tam dress Solange wore. Although I love her hair short ,I’m really feeling this new natural wig she’s wearing.

Cute platform sandals.

Minnie Mouse Makes A Fashionable Comeback

Dont Call This A Comeback! To dismay of reigning fictional fashionistas the legendary “Minnie Mouse” is back on the scene and this time around she has a huge celebrity fan base. Watch out now Hello Kitty! I remember the days of Disney’s Mickie Mouse with Minnie stealing every scene with her fashionably perky ensembles. I think its safe to say that Minnie invented trends like the polka dot, bow headbands, ballet flats, flattering baby doll dresses and the bold leggings. Lately, everyone from celebrity, models and designers are channelling their inner Minnie with their chic Minnie inspired outfits!
Solange Knowles is inspired by everything retro she has made it clear with her choice of music and also her personal style. Ofcourse the iconic Minnie will spark her interest. A few months ago Solo did an interview with blender magazine where she dressed up as minnie mouse. She pulled it off…

Designer Jeremy Scott is also channelling his inner minnie threw his mickey/minnie inspired ensemble worn by Rihanna on the set of her latest music video “Hard”. She wore everything from her helmet, bullet bra and super super short cut-off shorts. We all know that Mariel Hann (Rihanna’s Fashion Stylist) worked on this shoot a woman of great style so this is a definate co sign.
June Ambrose Stylist Extradinorie!

Chanel Iman graced the pages of Vogue recently with a Minnie Mouse inspired photoshoot. This is one of the best shoots I’ve seen featuring Chanel thus far.

Gaga joined the Minnie bandwagon when she paraded the streets with the minnie mouse bow as her hair style. We all know that Lady Gaga has no problem in taking risks a definate reminder of the legendary minnie.

Angela Simmons attended a Halloween party this past October with her Minnie-Chic naughty attire. She has everything down. Flattering dress? Check! Minnie’s signature bow? Check! Bold Stockings?Check! and her pearls are too adorable.

Do you think that “Minnie-Chic” is the new black? Are you inspired by what you’ve seen? You to can achieve a similar look with the help of the set posted below….

Wale for Honey Magazine

Perhaps you’ve seen him perform at the entire VMA’s with his band and artists, Pitbull and Solange but now Honeymag.com gives you an inside scoop on who the entertainer really is… Check out Wale’s interview for the November issue of Honey Magazine.

Interview snippet:
Wait, could it be? A witty reference to his rumored industry crush? The blogs have been buzzing about a relationship between him and Solange for months. The infamous Central Park picnic pics. Their flirty (and very public) tweets don’t do much to hinder the gossip, either. Back in the telly, we get a glimpse of another side of Wale. (Truth serum comes in many forms and flavors.)

“I do love her,” he admits of Solange, flashing a Cheshire. “We’re friends. She’s amazing. She’s a good person. Any single mother contributing to society the way she does — I got a lot of love for them. She’s got to do a lot on her own and raise a young black man in this day and age, so my hat goes off to her. She’s definitely an anomaly. And the way she can do that and manage to do the same things that I complain about having to do.”

His affection is as obvious as a set of flushed cheeks. And impossibly adorable. Wale, the former mixtape rapper from inner city DC, is borderline giddy. “Did you interview Solange about me?” Wale asks. He’s sprawled across his bed; head practically buried in the pillow. “Did she smile when you mentioned my name?”

Going Glamorously GREEN

Whoever said you cant take beauty up one notch with the earth tone color GREEN and be simply flawless?

Solange is caught in a Fashionista’s Bee Hive!

Though Solange Knowles is such a charming and down to earth entertainer, mother, fashionista (and the list goes on), she was simply aglow to feature in Honey Magazine this month. Now you must be wondering …how do I know? Well …tweet…tweet…tweet…Duh! Twitter! I follow most of the Honey Magazine staff and ofcourse their new cover girl Solange so I’ve been seeing the back and forth tweets. On Saturday September 19th I attended the WEEN “Dont Judge Me Empower Me” event in Harlem and (one of Honey Mag’s Editors was a member the career panel) during the event I’m checking my twitter page and Charles Wade is tweeting from the set of the shoot. Here are the pics we’ve all been waiting for.

Solo looks super cute with her new hair cut and bold street attire. Stylistically speaking if you have been reading magazines, popped by a store or seen just about any of the spring runway shows of New York and Paris, no doubt that the look du jour is all about bold earth tone colors —without any dispute. While the look has been in our wardrobes for countless seasons, lately designers are turning their attention towards bold ubiquitous colors, textures, acessories pieces while stylists like Honey Mag’s Charles Wade are exploring these bold silhouettes and styles. I am in love with the new shoot featuring Solange. She has so much potential and has made this fashion feature seem Effortless.

For the interview and more pics check out my favorite online magazine honeymag.com SOLO IN THE CITY and dont forget to join the bee hive.
