Solange Knowles is no stranger to a Met Gala. From her iconic yellow moment in 2016 to last year’s Thom Browne jacket we never knew we needed, it’s safe to say we can always expect something out of the ordinary from Ms. Knowles.
So when she showed up on this year’s carpet in a look inspired by the “Black Madonna and Saint Heron,” all eyes were on Solange. While the songstress undoubtedly made a statement in her durag halo and vinyl dress by Iris Van Herpen, it was actually her handbag and what was in it that had everyone talking.
While we’d like to think most stars carry lipstick and a pack of gum in their handbags, Solange’s Swarovski crystal-netted bag was designed for carrying a single bottle of ‘Florida Water’.
The purse took more than 10 hours to craft by hand. Florida Water is a ‘spiritual’ liquid known to protect against negative spirits and is said to give the skin a refreshing glow, containing notes of lavender and citrus. It’s safe to say Solange did not stray away from the theme, even when it comes to her choice of drink.
