Solange Rocks the Runway at Milan Fashion Week

Solange strut down the catwalk at the Alberta Ferretti fashion show during Milan Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2012. The singer, whose favorite designers include DVF, Opening Ceremony, J. Crew, and Boxing Kitten, recently signed a modeling contract with Next Model Management.

In an interview with Vogue Italia, the new aunt spoke about becoming Rimmel’s first black spokesperson.

“I don’t by any means consider myself the most qualified for model material,” she told the magazine. “I think that people tend to respond to what is real. Black women carry that flame with so much ease and confidence. It is being captured and celebrated on all fronts in fashion now.”

Solange is finishing up her third album. “There are a lot of songs about sex,” she confessed to V magazine. “It’s the kind of record you put on when your man is coming over, when you’re with your girls. There are songs that make you wanna dance because we were kind of partying our way through the record, but it’s very chill.”
