Solange Knowles - Solange Knowles: 'Michelle Obama is my style icon'
Solange Knowles admits US First Lady Michelle Obama is her style icon because she ''owns herself''.
Solange Knowles' style icon is Michelle Obama.
The 'Losing You' singer - whose sister is superstar Beyonce Knowles - has great admiration for the US First Lady because she ''empowers'' women by what she wears and is not swayed by the opinions of others.
She told Huffington Post: ''Not only is Michelle's style just stunning, but I love what she does for the American people and the American women specifically in terms of owning yourself and not wavering it towards other people's perceptions, especially as a First Lady.
''I've seen people criticise her in terms of her showing arms or legs, but I think it's so amazing how she empowers women to have a really strong sense of self and go after what makes them happy.''
Discussing her own style, flamboyant Solange admits she often changes what she likes but is currently into a ''minimalist'' look which draws the eye to one key detail of the outfit.
She told People.com: ''I've sorta begun to go for the minimalist approach. Obviously I wear a lot of prints and a lot of colours, but there are so many different facets to my style and this last particular season had a very minimalist vibe.
''I can wear one colour, but there has to be a certain detail there. I like things that are extremely architectural and amazing, so I can just build an outfit around that.''
