Celebrity Style, Solange Knowles, Who Wore it Better
Who Wore it Better? Solange Knowles vs. Monica in Roberto Cavalli’s Spring 2012 Printed Satin Blazer
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

Solange Knowles and her “questionable,” “undefined” 4c curl pattern stepped out to last night’s ‘See What Unfolds’ event at the Trident stand in Times Square. For the evening, she opted for a black top, shorts, clear strap Pierre Hardy sandals, and a $3,660 printed satin blazer from Roberto Cavalli‘s Spring 2012 collection. She completed the look with her trusty $325 bright pink CC Skye Niki clutch.

If the blazer looks familiar, it’s because Monica Brown wore the exact same one to perform at her Mother’s Day concert at the James L. Knight center in Atlanta. The singer chose a similar color palette, betting on a black blouse, jeans, and black Christian Louboutin Daffodile pumps.

Both Monica and Solange chose to anchor the blazer with all (or in Solo’s case, mostly) black. While I think she could have gone with a funkier combination, I think Solo rocked it better. There’s just something about the way she carries herself that uplifts the whole look! And can we get into the hair and makeup? Di-vine!

Confession: when my relaxer grows out, I like to play with my roots because they are so wavy. This photo really makes me want to touch Solo’s corkscrew curls, they look so soft and bouncy! Does this make me weird?

Anyway, what do you think?

* Both Cassie and Rita Ora wore the sequined version of this blazer. Which version do you like better? Who rocked the look best?

  4. hey yall says:

  5. lolodoll11 says:

    Solange. Monica’s look is just bleh and monotonous. I wish everyone would retire the chunky platform pumps. Sigh!

  6. D says:

    Lord… not Rita “H-Ora-ble” again….

    Solange looks so fantastic… and thanks to @sticky- n-sweet for asking about her shoes because she has worn them before and i’ve wanted to know more about them!

  8. whatevs says:

    Solange by a mile…

  9. manny says:

    Solo definitely! And Rita looks a mess

  10. hehe says:

    Do Monica wear anything other than blazers and skinny jeans? Her fashion is boring me. I prefer Solange.

  11. Tawanda says:

    SOLANGE! I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to her…love her style.

  12. Aya says:

    I’ve fallen in love with Solange more and more. She did it!

  13. omgfantastic says:

    solange ftw

  14. Bajan Candy says:

    Solo of course; AND Rita (LOL) I think she looks totes cute. Three cheers for her mixing things up a bit.

    I love me some Solange but her hair is looking a lil don king ish

  16. Dyanna says:

    Of course Solange rocked this piece best. That chic is just so damn adorable, I can’t stand it! lol

  17. Tamara says:


  18. sci1045 says:

    Solange knowles by far…love her!!

  19. Likkle Miss says:

    Solange’s hair is giving me Don King right now, but she slayed this look as she always does.

  20. yusufswifee says:

    solange is giving me lifeeeeee. She is so fab and this look is pure perfection. Monica needs to pull that weave out stat and her style bores me…her and lala are just yawn…spend a bunch of money….yawn…

    And touching your fab hair is natural. I love touching mine…when it grows long enough to curl up into it’s pattern and when it is cut super short…..

  21. Claire says:

    Jihan, you’re hilarious.
    For whoever asked, Solange’s shoes are Pierre Hardy from 2008 or 2009. She likes to resurrect her fave pieces, as witnessed by that CC Skye clutch. Cute!

  22. Miss London says:

    Miss Solo is the the truth! Effortless and graceful and then at the other end of the spectrum is Miss Ora.

  23. WendyB says:

    All I know is I want Cassie’s abs.

  24. Lafemmeafrique says:


  25. Grace says:

    Solo from the neck down. I always want to moisturize her hair and/or give her a two-strand twist-out, smdh….
    Somehow Monica found a pair of pants that are too tight for those skinny legs, NOT flattering.

  26. Nikkibellaray says:

    I love Mo’ but Solo has the IT girl factor here!

  27. Izhause says:

    Solange stays so untouchable! Luv her she is so fab I check for her all the time.

  28. AmazinRee says:

    My girl Mo can’t do no wrong in my eyes. Solange looks hot tho.

  29. MEME says:

    I like it on both of them.

  30. Solo def win’s this round!! I’m loving the sequin version as well… maybe more!

  31. KimberlyLove says:

    This jacket is amazing I just need it in my life.


  32. krystel says:

    Solange is fierce in this one…too hot!!!

  33. Is this even a question? Solo for the win!!!!

  34. live laugh love says:

    Solange really be dressing her ass off! I love this look on her.

  35. live laugh love says:

    Does she have a stylist or dresses herself I wonder! ?!

  36. MMhmm says:

    Pretty sure solange dresses herself which I admire.

    Monica is another one of those can’t dress heifers who hide behind designer labels but can’t actually dress for two craps.

    Cassie is my body inspiration. Too bad half of that is genes.

    Rita….take a seat.

  37. Anonymous says:

    SOLANGE! Monica looks good in it thought…but Solanges look with the comfy sandals, and shorts looks sooo effortless…Monica also looks awesome….Rite and Cassie…le sigh, grow up, get a stylist…stop trying so hard…

  38. loving these blazers!This is an awesome post.

  39. Blossom says:

    Am I the only one who thinks Solange’s hair is NOT cute?!

  40. MEL says:

    SOLO! next question pleez!
    More importantly…info on Solo’s shoes pleez!

  41. Jihan says:

    @MEL as Claire so graciously mentioned in the comments above, I quote:

    “For whoever asked, Solange’s shoes are Pierre Hardy from 2008 or 2009.”

  42. Diva says:

    Solo wins the look hands down… Monica used to be more of a risk taker with her fashion… she’s gotten kinda boring as of late.
    Solo’s hair is a HOT AZZ MESS and I am natural and have been for about 4 years… her hair looks dry to me and I love texture but I have never gone for that unkempt look….I think its hilarious how these days she is pushed to the front as a rep for the natural hair gals…. she is not reppin me .

  43. CA says:

    Solange= FASHION ICON!

  44. S. says:

    Solo for the win. I ♥ how Solange doesnt rock twist outs or try to “define” her curls, she is def a style icon. She does what she wants and I love that.

  45. aries says:

    Solange and Cassie can’t be beat.

  46. Sharon says:

    solonge of course!!!
