Social networks were buzzing at the end of August when word leaked that Solange Knowles had arrived in Cape Town for an ELLE cover shoot. Well, the highly anticipated cover is officially out and I just LOVE it! And I’m not the only one, with The Huffington Post having named this cover their favourite magazine cover this year.
The cover image was shot by Justin Polkey and styled by ELLE fashion editor Asanda Sizani, and has Solange wearing a sleeveless satin top by Tart, high-waisted shorts by Loin Cloth & Ashes and both her wrists full of extra large rope bracelets by Pichulik.
ELLE editor Jackie Burger described Solange’s shoot as ‘a moment beyond our wildest dreams’, saying the team had ‘taken a “what if” and turned it into an “if you can dream it, you can do it” reality.’
More pics from behind-the-scenes of the shoot can be seen on the Elle site here.
