FASHION FAB: Solange Knowles & Julez GET FAB For Stella McCartney's 2012 Spring Carnival Party + NeNe Leakes LANDS New Clothing Line!!??

Solange Knowles and her son Daniel Julez Smith were spotted at the Stella McCartney's Spring 2012 collection presentation in NYC yesterday.  See their cute mommy-and-me pics inside and find out about NeNe Leakes new clothing line.....

Solange Knowles brought her son out for Stella McCartney's 2012 Spring Fashion Presentation Carnival Party yesterday.  She rocked one of Stella's Spring/Summer 2012 print mini dresses.  And she and her son (who has an effortless fashion swag of his own) mingled amongst other celebs and models who showed off Stella McCartney's new spring collection.

And in case you didn't hear, comments about Solange's "natural" recently sparked an outburst from the singer.  She posted a stream of tweets directed at people commenting on her various hairstyles.  

 "I’m only going to say a few things. I cut my hair ALL off 4 times in my life all for very different reasons....I only reiterate this because this is nothing new for me. This 4th time did not define me, just as it had not the previous 3 times. I've never painted myself as a team natural vice president. I don't know the lingo and I don't sleep with a satin cap...However, I did notice when I picked out my hair, I kept seeing feedback about needing a "twist out". Connnnfesssioonnn: I HATE twist outs. Correction, I hate the way they look on me. SO I end up always picking them/steaming them out," Solange continues.

 

"Look, all I’m saying is. My hair is not very important to me....so I don't encourage it to be important to you. I’m very emotional today (involving something else), so I’m letting the momentum of that help me to express the fact that...I don’t want to talk about no damn hair.....no mo. (AND maybe I’m biased, but I agree 100% with the article I posted…)"

We feel her on the unnecessary constant judgment.  But interesting words about not wanting to speak about hair ever again--coming from a Carol's Daughter hair care spokesmodel.

 

While there, she and Julez also played with the carnival games.  

 

After the party, Solange also dropped by the Michael Kalish's Belle Epoque Sculpture celebration and posed with actress Kelly Rutherford.  Whew....busy evening!

 

And in other fashion news.....

 

NeNe Leakes may be the first castmember from "RHOA" to have an actual clothing line hit the market.  She's in talks with global brand licensing agency Beanstalk to put her name and brand on their clothing to make for her "own" clothing.  

Beanstalk said that it intends to “leverage NeNe’s position in pop culture to offer consumers fashion-forward, affordable apparel and accessories, designed to empower women to walk into a room and ‘own it’ -- like NeNe herself.”

Michael Stone, Beanstalk’s president and CEO, added "While the fame of reality television characters is often short-lived and fleeting.  NeNeLeakes has displayed versatility that has enabled her to transition from being a Real Housewives personality to a featured television star on Glee. NeNe's multi-faceted personality and aspirational style will translate well into products that will emotionally connect with her fans."

And the praise continued as Allison Ames, president of North America at Beanstalk, said  “NeNe’s rise to fame has eclipsed that of any other reality television star today, providing a real opportunity to extend her brand.”

Sheree Whitfield is somewhere thinking "Why not me and "She By Sheree?"  One day Sheree....

Leave Solange alone!!!! so

Leave Solange alone!!!! so what!! she wears her hair natural, and speaking as a black woman who can't wear her own hair due to Sarcoidosis, and even when I had all of my hair, I would wear my hair natrual. We look so beautiful, especally when we keep our hair groomed. As far as Julez he is a fine young boy who looks like his dad and his Carter family, and yes that is his real dad her husband. This site is so damn ugly with your stupid ass comments about stars who don't give a shit what you say negative about them. They will go on to make money, and other things positive happen for them, and you still will be talking smack!!! how sad.. just be a damn fan. Learn to just be you!!!

I love Solange's hair, I wear

I love Solange's hair, I wear mine natural also and no one understands my look! Women of color have such a complex about hair, they are not even comfortable with another women's hair on her head in her style, that is how insecure they are, but I do me and to bad so sad for all the sisters I bend out of shape! If you look at the Carter's baby, you will see she looks a lot like Julez, so the DNA of that family from grandmother is super strong. The fathers are not having a lot of affect on the family traits, but Mrs. Knowles' family trait is THE factor!

Solange is a natural hair

Solange is a natural hair paid spokesperson so natural hair community looks to her to be honest and informative about natural hair care. Her rant is as usual way off and unecessary.
hello's picture

I can totally relate to

I can totally relate to Solange and her hair rant. I too am natural, but there is a natural hair mafia out there that lurks on the internet ready to critique and natural hair style that someone chooses to have. I am so sick of folks telling what to use on my hair when I know what works for me. get the fuck out of here with that.

Solange and her damn attitude

Solange and her damn attitude towards the world...( fix bitch) never had to step one foot in this industry....always had beyonce to back her free Willy ass up.....this chick needs to take her fake inspiration wannabe ass somewhere overseas.....I will never forget how she use to talk smack about black women hating on beyonce and Destiny child's back in the days....when white people was the ones who was posting negative things about them in the media......tired ass self looking like a hot mess in red lipstick!!!!! Btw....who is so worried about this bitch hair in the first place....obviously she's trying to steer up the pot so that these useless hair care products can sell.....because I didn't read or hear anybody say a damn thing about her or her hair....this family gets paid off negativity....(scam and cons)

Little Juelz or Julez is too

Little Juelz or Julez is too cute. He is definetly a Knowles. Solange seems so lost. I'm guessing her parents treated Kelly Rowland more like their child than they did her growing up. Her sons hair looks more maintained than hers does, but I guess thats because she doesn't wear satin caps or get twist outs, oh Solange you make a better spokesperson if you didn't speak.

Sometimes Solange wants to

Sometimes Solange wants to rock her natural hair, and sometimes she doesn't. It's as simple as that and I don't understand the constant nitpicking at her about it. Why do sistahs feel there are 2 camps - Natural Hair or Processed, Weaved and Sculpted Heads. We ought to be happy that we have so many choices at our disposal. Also, I love Solange's naturally kinky puffy hair and it's shameful that so many black women seem to think the only way to rock a natural afro is some twist out madness. Note to all my fellow sistahs - THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR NAPPY HAIR EXACTLY AS IT GROWS OUT OF YOUR SCALP. End of story.

Solange is a spokewoman for natural hair products. She needs to lose the attitude and own the criticisms. I'm not mad a NeNe. She knows how to hustle and lock up a deal. I was not a fan of hers in the past but I like how she's been able to transform herself from the reality show format to Hollywood. Git it Nene.

I agree with the comments

I agree with the comments about Solange. Maybe she should withhold her "true feelings" until she's less emotionally compromised. If you're the brand ambassador for a hair care line, that if I understand it correctly, caters to and promotes natural hair, then people are going to call you to task. I'm personally always confused by the giant natural afro wigs and then her shorter natural afro, but that doesn't really matter.

Curious.....I have been

Curious.....I have been natural all of my life except for the period of oct - dec 2010; and a few times attempted to sleep with a satin scarf, but it always comes out in the middle of the night. What's the real benfit. I wear my hair to this day natural and don't see any issue.
