2011 really felt like a good year for Solange Knowles. While in the past we have always thought of her as Beyonce's younger sister, last year was the first time many people stopped and paid attention to her and it's hardly surprising. Her style and penchant for brands like Opening Ceremony and Dries van Noten has won her a legion of fashion fans and she's starred in big campaigns for both Rimmel and Carol's Daughter.
2012 looks to be even better for Knowles as yesterday, news broke that she has just signed with Next Models. Like Lana Del Rey who signed with them last week, she will join the agency's 'talent' category along with stars like Elie Goulding and Alexa Chung. Vogue UK, who are already calling her the 'next big thing', have confirmed that she will guest-blog on the website fo their 'Today I'm Wearing' feature.
Hopefully this is only the beginning of great things for Solange.
