Solange Knowles at MTV VMAs: Hair and Makeup

Love It or Hate It? Solange Knowles's MTV VMAs Look

Solange Knowles went with a completely different look than the one she was sporting on Friday at the Fashion Rocks event in New York. There she wore a subdued side-swept updo (that you all weren't feeling), but at the VMAs she went with a head full of spiral curls. And, I, for one, am loving the transformation. It's very reminiscent of Diana Ross in the '70s, but that definitely goes with the image the younger Knowles sister is currently trying to convey. Add to that a deep berry lip that matches her dress and you've got a look that's both retro and current. You likey?

I think this look really ages her. I thought it was Traci Ellis Ross especially when I scanned and saw Diana Ross written in the text. The hair or the lips or the eyes but not all 3 at once.

Can she just stay inside? No one is going to buy her album, so there's no need for her to be making appearances anywhere.

I don't care for her at all and think she is a wannabe following in her sisters footsteps but I must admit that she looks 100% better than at the Fashion Rocks event... ... and I am so glad to see she read my Bella comment and put some color on those lips!!!

I thought that she was LaToya Jackson at first. The strong eyebrows really hurt.

SOrry, but my first reaction was "clown". It's the combo of lips and hair. She should have toned something down. Honestly, that whole only emphasize one feature at a time works. Also, I kind of hate matching lipstick to your dress, but it could have worked if everything else was very simple.

This picture looks like it could be straight out of the early 90's.

She needs a new stylist, assuming that she has one.

There is something disturbing about the eyebrows and the dark lips. I don't know if it's the angle of the picture or what, but yes, at first she looked like a clown to me, or a tranny.

I kind of thought I was looking at Diana Ross from back in the day. A good retro look I guess.

I don't love or hate the dress, and I don't love or hate the hair/makeup, but I just wish she had picked one extreme and one toned down...
