Who Wore it Better? Solange Knowles vs. Monica in Roberto Cavalli’s Spring 2012 Printed Satin Blazer

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?
