Bold printed ensembles and a head full of box braids have become one of Solange Knowles’ signature looks. However, it was big sister Beyoncé who was spotted rocking the dynamic style while in Cuba on a wedding anniversary trip with hubby Jay-Z.
On Wednesday Bey dined in a multi-printed frock by Diane von furstenberg then on Thursday she strolled through the streets of Havana in an eye-catching Thakoon Addition Resort 2013 getup and gigantic, plaited top knot ‘do that was so spot-on with Solange’s style it could make for the perfect “Fashion Police” segment of Bitch Stole My Look.
But comparisons (and hostility) aside, the 31-year-old star looked fab!
It’s always a treat to see Beyoncé break out of her fashion comfort zone of bodycon dresses, hot pants and leotards. And we love to see her honey blonde hair in braids — although Mrs. Carter opted for a darker hue this time around. The braided extensions are always a good call when traveling so you don’t have to worry about fussing with your hair — no combs, brushes, hair dryers or flat irons required.
It was super exciting when Beyoncé started wearing braids again this past summer. And now the look is becoming a go-to ‘do for the superstar and mother to 1-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. Meanwhile a number of celebs are following suit. Janet Jackson was spotted in February sporting her “Poetic Justice” braids during Milan Fashion Week.
Here’s a look at Bey rocking her braids while hanging in Cuba–and check out the slideshow below for more photos from the trip.
