When we saw Solange Knowles' recent magazine cover yesterday, we nearly gasped! But apparently her crown was a bit too much for some.
Turns out the Evening Standard Magazine wasn’t too pleased about her final look, considering they Photoshopped out her magnificent braided halo.
Her message? “DTMH,” short for “don’t touch my hair.” See below for yourself:
Solange also took to her IG stories circling where the crown once was then posting screenshots of the interview. The “editing” is pretty puzzling, especially since the magazine specifically asked Solange about her love for hair. Read an excerpt from her story:
Drama aside, we spoke with celebrity hairstylist (and founder of the VERNON FRANÇOIS® Collection), Vernon Francis to get the breakdown of Solange’s breathtaking cover look.
“Solange has a very clear vision of what she is looking for,” Vernon shared. “Although we didn’t have specific inspiration, we wanted to focus on braided up-do, both graphic and clean.”
“Her hairstyle took a couple of hours. It was all hands-on deck — I specialized in doing her color and the cornrows towards back of her head,” he explained. “We had a full team dedicated to making the braids as we had several looks to-do, it was a great collaboration of two artists (myself and Joanne Petit-Frere) working together for one artist,” he added.
Sheesh, we can only imagine how popping the Evening Standard Magazine’s DMs (and comments section) are right now.
What do you think about their choice to edit Solange’s hair masterpiece?
