I risk offending a lot of die-hard Beyonce fans by saying this, but it's true: Tina Knowles and the House of Dereon must be stopped.   I'm assuming that they must have had something to do with what's now being referred to on the interwebs as Solange Knowles' Reign of Fug.

Solange's a pretty girl.  It seems unfair that the adjective most commonly applicable to her sartorial choices should be "unfortunate."  But even when she's doing well---look at the dress below! A great cut for great gams---something is just flat FUG.  The boots.  RIP Cousin It.

Maybe.  I like this girl's music.  Could a real stylist please stand up and help her out of her sister's fug design shadow?
