Solange Knowles in a dress-cum-cape at the Veuve Clicquot RICH launch party
Solange Knowles loves to colour block. Anyone that's kept a close eye on the singer at fashion week, or at parties, or on the red carpet will know that Beyonce's little sis isn't afraid to go BIG on colour.
And while she loves all those bright rainbow shades, it's white that Solange comes back to again and again.
Take last night at the swish Veuve Clicquot RICH launch event she hosted at London's Hotel Cafe Royal, where she wore an asymmetric dress-cum-cape with a pair of fun tasselled sandals. We've never wanted a white mini dress more.
And if anyone can pul off a cape, it's Solange. Remember the robe she wore at her wedding? It was pretty much one of the best alternative bridal outfits we've ever seen.
While last night's outfit was as close to perfection as you can get with a white dress, here's another four times Solange has proved that she's the queen of the white out.
1. The three-piece suit. A white suit is a tricky thing to pull of - just think of Celine Dion in that backwards tux at the Oscars. But Solange makes it look like the easiest thing in the world. Pushing her sleeves up and keeping accessories to a minimum makes sure that this outfit isn't too OTT.
2. The long silk coat. You almost need sunglasses to look at this outfit, so brilliantly white is it. Few would dream of teaming a floor-sweeping silk white coat with a white sweater and trousers (it's highly impractical for one), but for Solange it's a no-brainer. Plus, you don't need to think about the boring practical details like grimy Tube dirt when you have a driver. A slick of fuschia lipstick and some excellent fulffy sandals finish the look perfectly.
3. The non-wedding wedding dress. While Solange chose to get married in a jumpsuit, she used the Oscars Vanity Fair party to wear something far more bridal-looking. This is one lady not afraid to look like she's always walking down the aisle. In fact, with its high neck and long sleeves, this would make the perfect wedding dress for the more demure bride.
4. The sporty ensemble. Potentially the easiest of Solange's all-white looks for us mere mortals to master, this sporty perforated top and trouser ensemble is a statement evening look without being too try-hard. Just stay away from the red wine.
