I know, that this (eek) is probably no way to start a blog post but I don't know what else to say. A few week ago I watched from the front row -- Twitter never fails at giving you that "in-the-thick-of-things" feeling -- as the team responsible for bringing me my dear ELLE magazine announced that Sol0 would be their next cover. Solange on the cover of ELLE South Africa!
The second part of the announcement was probably one of my personal best moment in Pop culture. First there is watching the people watch the King of pop Michael Jackson do the moonwalk at the Motown 25th anniversary. Second in my best moments in popular culture there is every Brenda Fassie moment that was ever documented. Now in third place there is my favourite magazine shooting an international star in South Africa in clothes by South African designers and the best of all is that the star is Miss Solange Knowles.
On the cover she is dressed in shorts by Loin Cloth and Ashes, a top by Tart and accessories by Pichulik. It's every designer's dream! Who wouldn't want to dress a fashion it-girl with such great style? The issue right after its release on Monday (to great international media buzz) was named by the Huffington Post as its favourite cover of 2012. I am positively beaming!
Cheers to the weekend, loves.
