Solange Knowles Ferguson hosted a swanky Champagne launch party in London recently. Check out her cape and “bubbly” strut inside and see “OITNB” star Laverne Cox’s makeup-free selfie.
Where in the world is international fashionista Solange Knowles Ferguson? Following her twirl at the Palace of Versailles a few days ago, Solange headed to London where she hosted an exclusive bash to celebrate the release of the Veuve Clicquot RICH at The Pompadour Room in the Hotel Café Royal.
As usual, Solange stole the show with her fashions. This time, she stunned in an off-white gown by Marios Schwab with long over-the-shoulder cape from the fall/winter 2014 collection. On Instagram she wrote “Looking for a cape cure……..make it stop. Ok don’t.”
As the bubbly flowed, she posed with British singer Delila.
Designers Julien Macdonald and Melissa Odabash also took turns posing with the hostess.
We also spotted Jillian Hervey and Lucas Goodman of Lion Babe at the party. Jillian and Lucas also rocked Afropunk in Paris a few days ago.
After the function, Solange got her Champagne strut on saying,
“Because I’m ridiculous
Because it’s the end of my trip
Because it’s the end of #clicquotrich party
Because I have on a cape
Because I’m trying to walk like Mariah runs”

“OITNB” star Laverne Cox went the opposite of glam and took all the makeup off. She surprised fans by posting a makeup free selfie, showing off her natural beauty, and noting that “#TransIsBeautiful.” The photo shows Laverne in a relaxed and peaceful state of mind as she preps for the June 12th debut of season 3 of the hit Netflix series. She wrote,
“Finally a few days to relax. I feel so privileged to be able to do work that I love and very privileged to be able to take time off occasionally. I take none of it lightly. Always good to have days with no makeup to let my skin breath. #washfacenobase #TransIsBeautiful”
Also, fans of Laverne can head over to newsstands today to catch her on the cover of BUST magazine. Ms. Cox was shot by Danielle Levitt.
In addition to her work on “OITNB”, the TIME Magazine coverwoman continues to tour the country to shed light on issues affecting the Trans community. A few days ago, she appeared at Union College to wrap up the 2014-2015 #AintIAWomanCollegeTour.
