Solange's NYFW fail

Solange Knowles says that picking her outfits for New York Fashion Week has been "horrible".

The fashionista blames the cold weather for her fashion fails, and says picking the right winter looks isn't easy.

Despite her protests, 27-year-old Solange has been attracting praise for her style choices, which include an orange trouser and turtle neck combo teamed with pink heels and an electric blue coat.

"I'm doing horribly," Solange confessed to the New York Post's Page Six.

"All the designers send you spring samples and it's really hard trying to make the transition into winter looks. I've been doing really bad. But I did see [Vogue Japan editor-at-large] Anna Dello Russo walking up in a strapless tube dress with no jacket on the street, so I am not a champion."

She's no stranger to colour, and has previously stated how she likes to mix up bright hues with classic cuts.

"Although I do wear a lot of prints and colours, I tend to always gravitate towards classic silhouettes - like blazers, nice dress pants and blouses. I'm not as adventurous with silhouettes because I'm actually pretty busty," she's said in the past.

The younger sister of Beyoncé took in the latest trends at Miu Miu's screening of their short film Spark and Light on Tuesday evening.

Embarrassingly, Vogue's Anna wasn't the only fashion bigwig to rock the tube dress look, and stylist Giovanna Battaglia turned up to the event in the exact same Prada outfit.

"It happened by chance. But we love that," Anna laughed.

Other famous faces to be seen mingling in the crowd were Hailee Steinfeld and Anna Kendrick, who's popped up at numerous events and shows during Fashion Week.

The bi-annual event came to an end in the American city yesterday, but kicks off in London today.
