When it comes to festival fashion, almost anything goes. Solange Knowles wore a Moschino dress to Mardi Gras that was bright enough to be seen throughout the entire parade. Her outfit might not have been the most practical, but she definitely stole the show with her brightly colored ensemble. You can't exactly replicate the custom made design unless you have some awesome sewing skills, but there are plenty of alternatives out there that will channel the singer's look for less.
Knowles is always twirling around in the most unique clothing, and her Mardi Gras look was no different. She stepped out in the bright blue and green fringed Moschino dress with a black turtleneck top underneath for her ride in the parade. The 29-year-old had a special place in the parade as an Honorary Muse for the City's Krewe of Muses. That mean she got to ride around in a big pink sparkly show float, so obviously her dress had to be just as stand-out.
Because the dress was the star of the show, Knowles kept her hair and makeup simple for the day. Sporting her natural curls and a fabulous pair of lace-up clunky heels, it's clear to see that she earned her Mardi Gras title.
The day took a turn for the worst, however, when she lost her wedding ring. According to Daily Mail, Knowles' wedding ring flew off as she was throwing beads in the parade and has yet to be found. The singer tweeted a message from her son that seemed to make the ordeal a tiny bit better, though.
She may have lost her ring, but at least she still has that fabulous outfit to look back on! If you're looking for a similar vibe, try out these Knowles-inspired outfits that will definitely get you noticed for all the right reasons.
