We all know that Solange is no stranger to fashion. The soon-to-be 26 year old is quietly building a strong fashion identity for herself, and providing some pretty lively fashion inspiration on the regular. Check out the chic and edgy photo shoot she did with the French edition of Glamour magazine and peep a bit of her interview, in which she talks about her new album and her favorite cosmetic must-haves.
Glamour: What’s the secret to your style?
Solange: [My style is] very eclectic as I like to take risks, but I always cling to glamorous 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: Is style a family affair for the Knowles?
Solange: We love fashion, but we all have different styles. It must be said that we grew up with a grandmother who was a designer and my mother, who has her own collection.
Glamour: Do you ever go shopping with Beyonce?
Solange: I do 90% of my shopping online and now my whole family does the same! From time to time, though, my sister and I will pop by Opening Ceremony in New York and spend a few hours there.
Glamour: 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.
Glamour: Any new projects on the horizon?
Solange: 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!
