Wednesday Woman of Inspiration!

Solange Knowles!

My Wednesday Woman of Inspiration for this week is the yummy mummy Solange Knowles. Solange is a multi talented lady: apart from being BeyoncĂ©’s younger sister, and mum to 7-year-old Julez, she is also singer-songwriter, model, and DJ.
This lady knows how to juggle family life whilst still being uber fashionable and always looking amazing.
She often channels tribal looks and lots of bright and vibrant colours which I love about her, and she always seems to push trends and know exactly what suits her body. She is frequently spotted walking the red carpets of fashion world’s elite events and has recently becomes the face of cosmetic brand Rimmel London.
When asked by Rimmel what was Solange’s no.1 beauty tip, Solange responded:
Be healthy, be happy, be beautiful, be whole-heartedly you!

Check out her profile on Rimmel London's website:

After the success of her album Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams, she has said recently on Twitter that she hopes her new music to be released soon, and I can’t wait, I absolutely love her voice.
But until then, she has posted this song for her fans of what is to come and it’s a must play, such a relaxed and chilled sound.

I created the portrait of Solange by using HB & 2B pencil and a splash of water-soluble wax pastels, and have used bright vibrant colours to represent her bubbly personality and her lively and energetic fashion sense.
