Celebrity Style, Hot or Hmm, Solange Knowles
Hot! or Hmm…Solange Knowles in Stéphane Rolland Spring 2012 at the 6th Annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala
By Claire

Solange Knowles opted for a futuristic gown by Stéphane Rolland for the 6th Annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala:

She pulled her hair into a slick bun, and accessorized with a gold cuff.

The Spring 2012 gown features sculptural hips and a gold detail at the waist.

Hmm…normally white pops, but this look seems dull. Perhaps Solange could have played with a bit of color with her makeup? This isn’t my favorite look.
What do you think?

*Take a look at a few more pix from the night:

Elle Varner

Oh, hey Nelly and Ashanti!

    I love the dress and minimal accessories…SOLANGE looks tired as heck. the dress is beautiful… she did it no justice

  2. Tp says:

    Hmm if she would of did more with her make up she would of served it !!

  3. ShrenAKO says:

    She just looked a little tired. I wish she would’ve wore earrings. Maybe that would have helped.

  4. Boom-Boom says:

    HOT! Solange is a real beauty! I’m digging the fresh face, pulled back hair but the dress did miss the mark a tad. I’m use to color from her.

    Ashanti’s makeup is lovely too buttttt she always comes off wrong with her outfit…maybe a new stylish needed? but her hair is flawless.

    Nelly….ummm…its cute how his tie matches her hair o_O

    If the makeup was played up a little more, Solange’s whole look would be flawless. She looks great in the dress, and her hair works well with the outfit…it was just the makeup, in my opinion.

  6. Andie says:

    HOTTTTT!! I just reblogged this from tumblr and she didnt look so tired. The look is dope her expression, here, not so much

    Ashanti n Nelly are a no

  7. Kitty B. says:

    Solanges look is boring me **yawn** and she looks like she needs to sleep!

    So Ashanti and Nelly are back together for the 100th time!??

    Ashanti is killing me softly with her look sighsss

  8. MonaLisa_310 says:

    Solange is gorgeous. Her face looks a little washed out but she is still gorgeous. Good night Elle Varner (love your music though) and I would love for Ashanti to have several seats. **waves goodbye to Ashanti**

    i like! no make-up and all…

  10. DiamondLucia says:

    HOtT! Love the dress!

  11. Camillia says:

    Love the dress!! She needs a brighter lipstick to bring it out.

  12. Sticky-n-Sweet says:

    Elle Varner looks like Punky Brewster’s BFF on prom night circa 1987, Solange could use a power nap, a smile, and some concealer and lashes, and Ashanti has GOT to drop that hoodrat pose! Calling the Juniverse!

  13. tantalizing tosh says:

    I on the other want ASHANTI to STAND UP and put this manufactured acts to rest…train to sing, trained to do interview…..ummm trained to be human.

  14. Glow says:

    The dress looks gorgeous on Solange. She’s long and lean so it falls beautifully on her. My only critique is her makeup artist could have used a touch more concealer, other than that her look is simple elegance at it’s best. A pound of makeup is not always needed to make an outfit pop. Sometimes the garment alone IS the statement. Great look Solange!

  15. Ladyb says:

    Nelly …it’s time to let those earrings go dude…you look like a FOOL

  16. Miss Moore says:

    I love the dress and her styling but she could’ve used a little more makeup, maybe a little bronzer over her face cause the white and the flash seems to have washed her out a bit.

  17. cocoa says:

    i love solange. but there is nothing wrong w/a little makeup lol

  18. Trisha says:

    Solange looks gorgeous! !! Love that dress. And i like thst she kept everuthing else simple.

  19. BeBe Jones says:


  20. Lisa says:

    Solange dress and look is beautiful!!! U don’t need a bunch of makeup all the to look beautiful but she could of had a lil more pinkish lipstick but she still looks great .. That dress is bad!!

  21. YahnaM says:

    I would have love to see some lip color with this dress.Its a beautiful dress

  22. aj_wright says:

    nelly has no neck with the mark of Buddha on his forehead.. Ashanti needs to calm down with the glitter sheer and whatever else.. solange is TIRED.. LOVE THE DRESS THO… the funky girl looks.. cool n funky…

  23. Crystal says:

    I’m sorry but Solange needs make up. The natural look doesn’t work for her, especially with such a formal look. Her face is way too casual. Yes for Nelly and Ashanti. Get married already!

  24. Enigma says:

    Solange looks great in this ensemble. There’s a reason why entertainers wear a lot of make-up…so they look flawless in high wattage pictures. I think she could have done the “make-up natural” look.

  25. Mely B says:

    Although I’m not feeling the fake natural make-up, the dress looks stunning on her. She could’ve gone with a natural eye & red or coral lip to make it pop.

  26. dyshaun says:


  27. Mely B says:

    OOPS didn’t see the others before I commented – Ashanti’s face looks great but I’m kind of sick of her show girl posing. And Elle should’ve just worn her hair full out without that ridiculous bow otherwise her dress & make up are cute.

  28. jillibooboo says:

    why is no one mentioning that she has an IPHONE case at her damn waist?!

    hells matter wit u ppl?!

  29. Myssdee says:

    Solange- For a dramatic evening gown of that nature, her stylist should have let her hair be in her usual fro or have her makeup be more dramatic with a hair in that bun.

    Elle Varner – Definitely disappointed in everything. That dress and that hair bow was a NO NO. The dress seems too young for her and as if she did not know where was she attending. Whomever her stylist was, didn’t know who Elle was as a persona and needs not to be styling anymore because there should have been a much better dress that would have complimented her signature glasses.

    Ashanti and Nelly – Love their get up. She looked chic and elegant. Nelly looked exquisite in his suit. It wasn’t too much

  30. Solange fan signing on here… the look is amazing– I do wish she’d played with some eye color. She beautiful without lots of makeup but it feels like she should’ve had eye color at the very least.

    Still love you Solo :)


  31. Meika says:

    Solange looks stunning in the dress… the make-up & hair could’ve been much better… I am not liking Ashanti’s hair at all & why does she always look like she’s going to a prom when she’s in a dress… Elle is cute but that look was not…

  32. SHAQ NICHOLE says:

    Solange once again does it for me as always. See, this shows that it does NOT take alot to look good as per Solange! Beautiful!

  33. PeaceLoveAndSew says:

    Love the dress minus the black belt/part in front. IDK about solange’s makeup…maybe its because we are not used to seeing her with her hair pulled back????

  34. Tamara says:

    Solo!!! She looks fab. The dress is so dramatic, she didn’t need a lot of hair and makeup. She looks great.

  35. justsaying says:

    The dress wore her

  36. Crystal says:

    I voted hmm because her skin is not all that great and her eyebrows are un-done and most importantly, what is the black thing on the front of the dress?

  37. Diva says:

    Does Ashanti aka “Ms. if it ain’t too tight/ it ain’t right” know how to pose for pictures any other way ?

  38. Diva says:

    Elle looks cute…. but Solo kinda disappoints — she’s entitled to an off day, I suppose.

  39. shelly says:

    She looks like she just rolled out of bed and put that dress on. She looks so washed out and tired, and did no justice to that beautiful gown. She didn’t have to “beat” her face, but she could have used a some face concealer, some under eye concealer (to lighten up her eyes), a highlight or bronzer, to add a little glow to the skin, and maybe a little liner to make the eyes pop. And her lips could have used a nude/pale pink cream lipstick. —-just my suggestions, lol.

    u can’t wear such a glamorous dress and minimal/no make-up…it doesn’t go hand and hand.

  41. SxyDread says:

    Solage can do no wrong in my book. the look is GORGEOUS as usual. I too, wish she had worn some earrings and she did look a little tired but overall, she rocked it. that dress is HAWT.

    Can someone please teach Ashanti how to pose? I’m tired of seeing that elbow…

  42. Raven says:

    I thought that was the back of an iPhone for a second…anyway I actually like the dress minus the metallic piece. I just don’t like the makeup or hairstyle

  43. mallory says:

    Solange looks beautiful, no complaints here.

  44. KinkyCurly says:

    The dress isnt the problem,it is beautiful on her.The problem is from the neck up.Her makeup is too neutral,maybe if she went with a berry colored lip or maybe tried a cat eye.Maybe even a simple pair of earrings.Her hair looks fine,but she looks tired and that is what ultimately is pulling down the entire look in my opinion

  45. Jennifer says:

    Someone should’ve told Elle it was a formal occasion. *pouts* I love her so!

    The dress is gorgeous and she styled it [minimally] to perfection! With such a stunning gown and sleek hair, though, she should’ve SERVED with the make up.

  46. whatevs says:

    Flawless…this doesn’t even belong on the fashionbomb…this site is not worthy…

  47. anonymous says:

    wow @ the previous comment…smh.

  48. p says:

    solange looks like a washed out corpse. she needed some color on her face. and i don’t think this kind of silhouette looks good on anyone. elle varner looks adorable though. ashanti looks better then usual.

  49. ninjo says:

    Dress is hot. Face… not so much.

  50. jan says:

    that dress is fierce! she just needs some makeup.
