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....
