• Fashion News: Solange Knowles Signs to Next Models

    It seems our Fashion Bombshell of the Year, Solange Knowles, is fixin’ to grab that #1 spot again in 2012. Vogue UK reports that the new aunt has snagged a contract with Next Models under their talent umbrella.

    The DJ and style icon is no stranger to the modeling world. Ms. Knowles has appeared in campaigns for Rimmel London, Carol’s Daughter, and Armani Jeans. She’s also acted as a style muse for Suno and been named Who What Wear’s Girl of the Month, a title unsurprisingly almost exclusively (perhaps unintentionally) bestowed upon white women. She will also be featured in Vogue UK’s Today I’m Wearing feature, which documents the daily personal style of various celebrities.

    Ms. Knowles is rightfully excited about this new contract: “Artistic expression is invaluable to me in all walks of my career and I am so excited to continue to develop this path along with such an amazing team at Next Model Management. I feel right at home working with people who have worked beside such creative forces in the world.” Congratulations to her! We can’t wait to see what projects this deal brings her in 2012!
