We need to stop referring to 26-year-old Solange Knowles as Beyonce's kid sister. Doing so undercuts the star she is in her own right, a stunning beauty with the kind of creative, understated style that makes women envious and leaves men nodding in approval. She's served as brand ambassador for Armani and modeled for Rimmel London, and this fall, the edgy fashionista will be the face for Madewell (J.Crew's cooler, younger sister). And that's just her side gig. She's set to drop an '80s-inspired single off her third album (which will feature collabos with Chromeo and Pharrell) next month. Yes, the Carroll Gardens-resident has a 7-year-old son, Daniel. How she manages to nail this elaborate juggling act is astounding. If she can fit one more, we'd be happy to join the Jay-Z/Beyonce clan. Joining hip-hop's royal family would only be the ultimate bonus.
