Solange Knowles Is The New Face of Madewell
Her star isn’t shining quite so bright as big sister Beyonce, but Solange Knowles is on her way up!
The latest celeb/brand pairing is a match made in heaven, as clothing label Madewell announced that Solange would star in their new fall 2012 campaign. The singer will fill the void left a few years back by Alexa Chung as the famous face of the brand as it continues its plans for expansion, with a planned 15 new stores in new markets, including California, Atlanta, Denver and the Midwest. Deemed by Beyonce as being “so Brooklyn,” Solange seems like a good fit for the brand who’s casual cool clothes are a staple of the hipster, quirky girl. And as a former “brand ambassador” for Armani, and a model for Rimmel London, this is another nice feather in Knowles celebrity spokesperson hat, her first contract with a major clothing label.
