Putting her infamous drama-filled Met Gala appearance of 2014 firmly behind her, Solange Knowles stole the spotlight for all the right reasons this year wearing a custom Salvatore Ferragamo ensemble designed by creative director Paul Andrew.
The head-to-toe, show-stopping python outfit consisted of a form-fitting, masculine-cut bodysuit with long sleeves and dropped shoulders that the 32-year-old Almeda singer teamed with matching thigh-high ‘F wedge’ boots.

Dazzling rings, bracelets and a necklace all by Piaget, completed her look.
Later on in the evening, Queen B’s little sister even shared a photo of a real live python curled around her wrist and intertwined between her fingers - its skin cleverly coordinating with her incredible snakeskin embellished nails – with her 3.9 million Instagram followers.
Paul Andrew joined Salvatore Ferragamo in September 2016 as design director of women’s footwear, before being promoted to women’s director a year later.
His recent promotion to creative director of the Italian heritage brand in February 2019 was timely, allowing him to be a critical part of the brand’s first foray into dressing celebrities for the annual Met Gala.
