Met Gala 2015: Solange Knowles Wows in Printed Giles Mini

Posted on

Despite the highly publicized elevator extravaganza at last year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, Solange Knowles is definitely not shying away from attention this year. Arriving in a printed Giles mini-dress with teensy pleats, Beyoncé’s newlywed kid sister wrote on Instagram, “When @cartier is your date, and Giles is your dress.”

Without a regal cape or a bold, monochrome look, we almost didn’t recognize the R&B singer. But then again, who else could pull off a dress this statement-making?

The effect looks like two paper fans on top of each other, which isn’t a bad thing—but definitely fits with Solange’s trademark eccentricity. The whole appearance spurs so many questions: Will she upstage her sister, who usually arrives at the eleventh hour? Does she have to hold her arms out like that all night? We’ll have to wait and see.

What do you think of Solange’s 3-D dress?
