Solange Knowles for Elle Magazine South Africa

I loved this magazine cover so much I thought I should just share it with you. If you have not seen it already then it is my pleasure (laughs). Solange came to Cape Town South Africa with her mother Tina Knowles to shoot a video for her new single "Losing You" and to shoot the cover of my favourite magazine Elle. So without any further delays here are some of the shots I found on the Elle web site (

On the Cover,Solange is wearing Loin Cloth & Ashes shorts, Tart top and Pichulik rope bracelets.

And here are some of the behind-the-scenes editorial shots:

 Silk brocade bustier and matching skirt by Gavin Rajah, Jacket by Loin Cloth & Ashes and Wire and Bead Cuffs each by Merchants on Long.

 Solo wearing Rodarte with the editor of Elle South Africa, Jackie Burger

 Cotton jacket by Near and Far at Merchants on Long

I hope you guys find this as inspiration to go get the magazine if you are in Africa, thats if you do not have it already. If you live in the other parts of the world and it is not on sale there just visit and watch the behind-the-scenes videos.


  1. I love Solange and i love the clothes they styled her in :)

  2. I really love Solange, she's such a stylish, inspirational and talented woman like Beyonce!
