You’d forgive other A-listers if they’d given her a wide berth. Even the paparazzi seemed to keep their distance. Solange Knowles however plastered a smile on her face and posed confidently on the red carpet resplendent in a silver silk Calvin Klein sheath for her return to the spotlight for the first time since her headline-grabbing fight with Jay Z last month.
Beyonce's younger 27 year-old sister became headline news following the leak of security camera footage which showed her lashing out at the rapper whilst Beyonce looked on, as they left a party at The Standard Hotel after the Met Gala in the Big Apple.
The pair has since apologised to each other over the incident and tried to keep a low profile, but Knowles braved the press and photographers at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards on Monday, whilst refusing to answer questions about the incident.
On a further twist to the tale, the reported cause of the fight, Jay Z's ex-flame Rachel Roy, was also at the fashion gala but the two gave each other a wide berth all night with the two camps seeming intent on keeping them apart.
The family’s release about the incident stated; “Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.''
