Like all famous little sisters (Nicky Hilton, Ashlee Simpson, Ali Lohan, et al), Solange Knowles may feel like she's living in her big sister's shadow, but after her appearance on Letterman in NYC yesterday, we're happy to say that she stands on her own two feet. Unfortunately, this recognition comes as a result of her disastrous choice in clothing.
Solange has a killer figure, and the skinny dark denim looks great on her derriere, but the purple ostrich-feather shrug and print booties are atrocious. The shrug might not have been so bad in black (in fact, Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham have rocked similar styles and pulled it off) but Solange couldn't resist the plum colored madness, and that's the first problem with this outfit. Next is the shoes. They look like someone covered them in cloth from the clearance bin at Jo-Ann Fabrics, and the saddest part is they're probably worth a few hundred dollars. Just because it's expensive doesn't mean it looks good!
If she really wanted to get noticed, she should have worn simpler pumps (even leopard would be fine!) and a different top combo, but she just had to take the fug route, which is totally unforgivable. On a final note, the oversize gold necklace isn't bad by itself, but it doesn't work with the outfit - it's like adding chocolate sprinkles to a fish taco - it doesn't make any sense and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Would you rather be Beyonce's little sister or on a worst dressed list?
