The special screening of the renowned F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel turned film, The Great Gatsby, was star-studded. Aside from the cast, the event was populated by Hollywood A-listers, including Solange Knowles.

The singer and Beyoncé’s sister is known for her bold print choices. She is not one to shy away from colors and is even famed for her penchant for color blocking. And her trademark hairdo, of course, can’t be missed.

Solange was dressed to the nines for the film screening in her Jill Stuart fit-and-flare dress featuring a striking geometric print and peplum waist.

Solange can’t be pried away from colors, so she injected a pop of red in this ensemble through her bright red Burberry Prorsum “Crayford” wedges.

The dress is from Jill Stuart’s Fall 2013 collection. Solange obviously fell in love with it the same reason I did. The print is just so striking, and both the flare and the peplum are amazing details.

I’m torn, however, because I love the dress but hate how Solange styled it. On the runway, the dress was presented with its front zip up, but Solange opted to show more than a bit of cleavage by keeping the zip open. That decision broke the geometric pattern of the dress and made the look quite garish.

In addition, although I think the pop of red is a wise decision, I’m not completely in favor of the singer’s shoe choice. The wedges cut the length of her legs. A pair with a different heel structure would have suited her better.

So, I guess this is a case of the dress looking better on the model than on the celebrity who wore it. But what about you, ladies? Do you echo my opinion, or do you think Solange wore this dress and styled it to perfection?
