Solange Knowles at the 2009 MTV VMAs

MTV Video Music Awards: Solange Knowles

We already know that Solange Knowles is one brave woman. It takes a lot of guts to take your hair from well beyond shoulder length to practically shaved off. I think the ultracropped style is really working for her, though. Seeing that Solange is not a shy one when it comes to experimenting with her beauty options, leave it to the singer to make tonight's red carpet appearance a dramatic one. Heavily done-up eye makeup, matte bubble-gum-pink lips, and distinctive eyebrows all play a part in Solange's bold style. Are you mad about matte?

I really needed a nude or glossy lip for this look. Meanwhile, is it me of is the foundation quite light? I understand camera flashes and all but, the difference between her face and neck (let alone her scalp) is more than ideal. I understand why she went natural and I'm happy for her. However, as she said on the Oprah show, it's just a phase spurred by Chris Rock's movie and she'll be wearing a weave again in a few weeks. Unless she likes the way it grows out, then she'll keep it I pressume. It's an experiment. She's still not used to it. Heck, I couldn't imagine going commando on my head. Besides, I've met plenty of girls who went natural for the attention. They tried to shine way more than her.

BabyGirl - I thought the same thing! I like the hair; I think it looks just fine on her. HOWEVER; I always see this look of desperation for attention in her eyes and just the way she poses her face (can you really call this a smile? I don't think so). the eyes are gorgeous but the lipstick looks silly and is too much along with the daring hair and ugly earrings...

I hate the earrings, but I think the lips could be softened by a bit of gloss.

Hair & eyes are wonderful. The lipstick is too harsh.

At least when I cut my hair off into a Caesar it looked good. this looks a mess and the lips are making it worse. This is what happens when you cry out for attention.

The makeup - besides the lips is very nice.

The awful color of that lipstick totally distracts you from off the beauty of the rest of her face!

Those earrings probably cost thousands of dollars but they look like they're worth 35 cents
