Solange Shows Her Model Behavior For Alberta Ferretti Presentation During Milan Fashion Week

Solange Knowles walked for a special Alberta Ferretti presentation today in Milan for the kickoff of Fashion Week.  Check out the glam style of the new Next model inside...

During a special presentation today for designer Alberta Ferretti's Milan Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2012 show, Solange Knowles modeled a fab silver design along with her famous curls and a bold red lip.

 

Two other YBF models were also in the presentation:

Fab.

Solange also recently did an interview with Vogue Italia where she dished on her style, beauty routine, and how she defines success: 

Favourite places to shop?
“I do most of my shopping online with Net A Porter, Shopbop, Theoutnet. When I need the in store experience, Opening Ceremony in New York is always fun.”

Fashion Icons?
“Diana Ross, Erykah Badu, the Fela Kuti Queens, my uber glam mother, Chaka Khan, Bjork and the girls on the street in my hood.”

Make up Routine

"YSL concealer, Rimmel mascara, Rimmel pencil eyeliner, bright lips... Keep it moving"

Beauty Routine

"I am very low maintenance. I think I am lucky when I get to wash my face at night. I occasionally get facials by a miracle worker in Los Angeles named Mirta. However, apparently getting facials is not the way to erase months of carelessness and angry pores. Sleep is vital, happiness is key so I feel the most beautiful with those two elements combined."

Where does that happiness stem from exactly?  More excerpts:

 

Relationship status

"Happily Committed. It is not complicated, thank God!"

Personal motto

"I tend to adopt Tamar Braxton's Motto over my OWN.COM."

What does success means to you?

"Defining success on my own terms. First, being a loving and committed mother. I have failed in all things if I have not achieved that. Being an artist that creates to express the needs of my own, and in the process hopefully inspiring others. Having the financial stability to support the lifestyle that makes me feel fulfilled. I know that happiness is a temporary state of mind, success means for me constantly growing, evolving to find that place."

What is your opinion about the black representation in the fashion industry?
“I think it is evolving, and that is a beautiful thing! Now when I flip trough magazines I can see just as many beautiful black models in major campaigns as any other race. Unique, striking,beautiful women. I felt so extremely blessed to be Rimmel’s first black spokesperson, and to be embraced fully for being exactly who I am. And standing next to Kate Moss, with my Afro bigger than days light. I don’t by any means consider myself the most qualified for model material. I think that people tend to respond to what is real. Black women carry that flame with so much ease and confidence. It is being captured and celebrated on all fronts in fashion now. I have friends who are doing greats things, that movement is very real and well deserved!”


5 things you can't live without?
Water, food, plants, sun and sex.

Check out her full interview over at Vogue Italia.

The own.com is funny. If you look at it Tamar is sister to Toni. She is also the only sister on the show relevant and getting her own show as of right now. OWN is also the name of Oprah's network. Solange always finds ways to talk about being her OWN person and still having her personal power. And she referenced a sister who is stepping from behind her own sister and still finding success. Get it now?

Solange has a look that is

Solange has a look that is unique - but she is not a runway model. Bitch got her priorities twisted. I'm a mother - I can't live without my children: 5 things you can't live without? and Solange answers: Water, food, plants, sun and sex. A cute answer, but shows a high level of immaturity for a person with a eight year old child.

I initially thought the same

I initially thought the same thing when I read Solange's response to the question on the 5 'things' she cannot live without. I get Solange's response; she probably doesn't see her son as a 'thing', so I can accept her answer without being too judgemental. Now if the question was 'Who are the 5 people you cannot live without?', and her son was not included in her response; then it could be easily concluded that Solange has a problem. Again; I doubt that Solange views her precious son as a 'thing'!

Thank you. And actually being

Thank you. And actually being a good mother - which Solange is - trumps how you answer an interviewer's questions. The original commenter obviously needed to hate on something.

Yes, I really need to hate on

Yes, I really need to hate on something. The five things I can't live without.. Hearing my child say I love you, seeing my child smile, seeing my child happy, hearing my child's laughter, seeing my child with her daddy... In short the thing I can't live without is my child. Go figure.

Solange reminds me of Tracee

Solange reminds me of Tracee Ellis Ross in one of the photos. I really hate to hear women using the word UGLY about other women on here. Why should she be compared to her sister I love both. Solange speaks her mind, always keeps it real, and has found her voice which makes her true to herself. You can so tell who is not cultured on hear when you only hear praise of one TYPE of Beauty. I agree she is appreciated in Europe, that's her market due to most of the close minded self haters we have in the States

I like Solange, but I do not like seeing her with that awful mop on her head!! Epic Fail!!! She is modeling in the show because of who she is, she is NOT a professional model and will never be booked for major shows. It's the nature of the current business world, insert a "famous person" for show.

She is no runway model

She is no runway model material; commercial, print -YES! HIGH FASHION-NO! She is there because she is a pseudo celebrity and sister and sister in law to real celebrities! Of course the designers will put her in their shows! It creates publicity therefore big sales! Would she be casted if she were a nobody? Probably not! But nevertheless Kudos to her!

If she got these jobs because

If she got these jobs because of her sister, then her sister would have been the first African American Rimmel spokesperson...but she wasn't, Solange was. She gets these jobs b/c contrary to what the eyes of people commenting on blogs see the professionals who scout see something amazing. Critics criticize b/c they can't do.

If Rimmel could have landed

If Rimmel could have landed Beyonce they would have...believe it. Heck they probably contacted her people and she told them no but Solange may be interested. Get real Solange is no beauty and Rimmel went with the "famous by association" route to promote their brand.

For the record "natural"

For the record "natural" doesn't mean you don't wear braids, wigs, press or weaves...it means you do not put chemicals in your hair. Most natural woman I know do what we call "protective styles" whereas we will wear a wig or a weave or what have you b/c just like permed hair natural hair can be overworked and break shed and get damaged. She cut her hair off years ago now, I'm sure she has a head full of locks.

Just because she's signed by

Just because she's signed by a modeling agency doesn't mean she's a "model". If so they need to put her in runway class. I'm no expert but her posture in the runway pics is horrible. I agree with the others who commented on her attitude. She has a MAJOR chip on her shoulder in all of her interviews. It's so not necessary. It makes it really hard to like her.

There is nothing great about her, she is average at best. I know she tries to be different but, the things she says in interviews and her attitude makes her a second thought. For the life of me I don't know why she keeps popping up on this site. Let's move on, shall we?
