Cover Girls: Solange for Complex Magazine

My favorite Knowles and fashion icon Solange Knowles is radiant and oh-so-fly on the cover of Complex Magazine this month.

Beyond her stunning looks and covet-worthy 'fro, she sheds light on embracing her individuality and following her dreams in the cover story for Complex's June/July issue:

On being stylish since childhood:

“I had my own little quirks as a child,” Solange says. “I had a very vivid imagination, mostly through my style and fashion choices. The kids had a lot to say.”

On her parents inspiring her to make her dreams come true:

“I have a mother who never took no for an answer when it came to her creative pursuits,” Solange says. “She started a hair salon in her spare bedroom and four years later had 30 employees. I have a father who was the first black student at his junior high and high school and had to do a lot to get to that point. So it’s really in my bloodline when it comes to having an idea and making it happen.”

On living her life with no regrets:

“It’s just about putting the music out when it’s ready. When I wake up in the morning, I get dressed for myself, I listen to what I wanna listen to, I make decisions for me. It’s been interesting to navigate that from such a young age so publicly. But life is short and you have to live for you. I would never wanna look back on my life and feel like I missed out on any of that.”

Absolutely stunning! For more pics and to read the entire cover story, head to Complex.com.
