Solange LANDS Deal As FACE Of Madewell + Is Nia Long Set To STAR In Film Version Of Zane's "ADDICTED"?

Solange has landed a new modeling gig as the face of Madewell clothing company.  See the pics inside and get the deets about Zane's Addicted heading to the big screen.

Solange Knowles has landed a major modeling contract with Madewell--J. Crew's sister store.  She's already shot a few ads for the company's Fall 2012 collection which she rocks with her big curls.  And the styles are so her.  The style of Madewell is described as casual with attitude:

Madewell is a women's-only, item-driven line focused on "timeless and ageless" casual merchandise. The attitude is clean, modern and affordable; items are priced 20 to 30 percent lower than J. Crew, and the intent is to provide value without being too volume-driven. The bulk of the business is jeans, chinos, T-shirts, woven shirts, sweaters and fleece sweatshirts, and about 80 percent of the assortment is less than $100. Most of the key items are in the $48 to $78 range.


Check out the singer/fashionista's spread:

To date, this is Solange's biggest fashion modeling gig.  She also repped for the Rimmel company and is a spokeswoman for Carol's Daughter.


And here's BTS footage:



And in movie news......

Erotica author Zane's popular novel Addicted, which follows a successful sex-addicted African American businesswoman, is officially headed to the big screen with Lionsgate.  Here's the plot:


For Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction...to sex. Finding a compassionate woman therapist to help her, Zoe finally summons the courage to tell her torrid story, a tale of guilt and desire as shocking as it is compelling. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets to the rough and violent man who draws her toward destruction, Zoe is a woman desperately searching for fulfillment -- and something darker, deeper, and perhaps deadly. As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous choice, Zoe is racing against time to uncover the source of her "fatal attraction" -- as chilling secrets tumble forth from the recesses of a woman's mind, and perilous temptations lead toward a climax that can threaten her sanity, her marriage... and her life.

Bille Woodruff is the rumored director and both Nia Long and Tasha Smith have been discussed for the lead.  Sounds sexy!

Please don't cast Tasha

Please don't cast Tasha Smith! She's a beautiful woman, but her voice is only set to one volume: loud. I can't watch her show on TBS because of it...well that and her acting's a bit contrived...scratch that, it's very contrived.

Awww I love Tasha, butI

Awww I love Tasha, butI totally understand where you're coming from. I actually had a convo with an up & coming filmmaker who was planning to do some work with her & I pretty much said the same thing. He told me that it's because she is being type-casted in that role (no thanks to Tyler Perry) and as a black actress, unfortunately with limited roles out there she is taking the roles she's being offered. No disrespect meant to Tyler Perry because I think he has given work to a lot of black actors that wouldn't have otherwise have gotten work. But we all know all his movies and tv shows stereo type blacks

Solange is looking amazing

Solange is looking amazing aaaand so glad Nia is back to work. The film sounds like something in the ballpark of Confessions of a Call Girl, so this should be interesting.

Ive always loved Sol and

Ive always loved Sol and anyone like her who marches to the beat of their own drum where style is concerned. Both her and Ms Badu epitomises that. Im not a huge fan of Zane but Nia can do no wrong, so with that in mind I'd be willing to take a peek.

Well I'm happy Solange's "au

Well I'm happy Solange's "au nàturale" look is puttin some money in her pocket, first Carol's Daughter and now Madewell. The brand doesn't really fit her style but hey, it works for them. Nia is SOOOOOO pretty I'm glad she is working on a new movie, and the plot sounds decent!!

Solange has come a long way

Solange has come a long way and she finally looks comfortable in her own skin. Her photos look great. Congrats to her! I've read Addicted some years ago and it was erotically off the chain. To see it come together on the big screen is going to be interesting, but I think the lead choices are pretty good. The actress has to be sexy and totally uninhibited because Zoe really gets it in so they have to be willing to go there in all senses of the word. Can't wait to see it!
