Solange Knowles Fashionably Late Fixture At Paris Fashion Week
Solange caught a lil slack for being late to one of this week’s Paris fashion shows, but we’ve been kind of blown away by her get ups while in the city of light.
According to Page Six reports:
Solange Knowles had top fashion editors grumpily peering at their watches at Carven’s morning show during Paris Fashion Week — sauntering in 30 minutes late Thursday.
The singer’s late arrival came just hours after rapper Kanye West — whose wife, Kim Kardashian, made a fashion statement of her own at Balmain’s show Thursday, showing off her new platinum locks — held things up at Dries Van Noten’s show.
The new question: Is being fashionably late at Paris Fashion Week now an intentional thing, done to avoid dangerous media scrums in the digital age and allow top celebrities easy entry into shows?
But Beyoncé‘s younger sister was immediately forgiven for her tardy entry into Carven’s show — rocking wild, trendy hair, a bold red faux fur coat, a geometric lined turtleneck and a daring split skirt.
SMH. We doubt it’s anything that deep. You know Solange was just trying to get her wig straight before she stepped out.
In the meantime she’s got good news to celebrate:
Knowles’ eclectic personal style is already much admired in the French capital. In January, she was chosen as the new face of Elevenparis, for whom she’ll perform a DJ set Thursday night.
“DJing should be fun. But I’m here in Paris to take inspiration in the styles that are so different from New York,” she told The Associated Press, acknowledging she thought the Parisian style was more refined and natural that in her native U.S.
“Paris is different [from] New York, definitely. There’s a more defined and refined look here. I love the makeup. It’s so much more natural,” she added.
Congrats to Solange on all her fashion accolades.

Here she is arriving at Charles de Gaulles airport on Wednesday. Very fashion forward travel statement, oui?
