 For Spring 2013, Dolce & Gabbana showed a collection that seemed to be a tribute to the colonialist era complete with burlap dresses.

Exhibiting a pure look that exudes volumes . In this recent feature of ..."I love to have fun"... title (as if we dont already know ) the reporter carefully avoids the issue of her mending fences with Chris and goes on to explore the world of the feisty RiRi.

With its woody and skin musk notes, the fragrance transmits intimacy and a feeling of bare skin and nakedness.

 As usual, Solange looks stunning in African prints and on this cover she wears her iconic afro hair do, two prints - high waist shorts by SA Designer, Loin Cloth & Ashes and a top by Tart that is very kind to her curves and her MORE is better chunky hand pieces from Pichulik
