Rebel, Rebel: Getting To Know The Real Solange
Solange Knowles remembers the first time she got in trouble—big trouble—as a kid. Her parents, salon owner Tina and Xerox businessman Mathew, always allowed their youngest daughter to express herself through fashion. But on that particular night, when Mathew was taking his family to an office holiday party, he put his foot down.
“He worked a super-corporate job,” she remembers. “And naturally he just wanted us to look nice, and six-year-old me came out in a tutu and tap shoes. He said, ‘No. Not this time.’ It was the first situation where he really gave me a look and sent me to my room. He was upset. It was a big deal.” She smiles at the memory. “When I look back at old pictures, my dad was always smartly dressed, my mom had the most elegant, beautiful style, and my sister was very into the ’90s Cross Colours look, and I …” she pauses. “I just had all of these different things inside me.”
Solange Knowles was born to stand out. And today, on a hot late-May afternoon in New Orleans, she’s looking straight-up vivid. Slightly east of the French Quarter, Washington Square Park is full of all types—construction workers, kids on skateboards, girls hula-hooping. This is a city known for its colorful buildings, bold flavors and oversize characters. So it takes something special to draw the eye: Heads turn when the girl dressed in a bright yellow Christopher Kane dress, turquoise neoprene Josh Goot shell and gold Aldo sandals strolls through the grass with her rainbow-bright bike.
