Solange Knowles Rings In The New Year Long And Lovely-------
If the wire images we’ve perused so far this morning are any indication, Las Vegas was the place to be for New Year’s 2011. (Chicago? What were we thinking?!) To fête the opening of the Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan in Sin City, the late-night destination flew in, well, pretty much everyone who is anyone to see Jay-Z and Coldplay’s Chris Martin take the stage together on Friday night. Proud wives Beyoncé and Gwyneth were both there, as were Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna, the latter of whom rolled through the after-party once she had completed her own hosting duties at Pure, a bit farther down on the Strip. And while all aforementioned ladies of rock sported excellent beauty looks, we were taken with Beyoncé’s little sis, who has forgone her signature close crop for braided extensions. Solange debuted her thigh-grazing locks and headscarf when she took to the decks on Thursday night before the big show on Friday, and kind of stole the DJ set from a platinum and pixied Samantha Ronson. What do you think: better off buzzed or leave it long?
