Tina Knowles Lawson picked some iconic looks to adopt as her own
Beyoncé and Solange’s mum has dressed up as her daughters in two new posts on her Instagram page.
Tina Knowles Lawson shared the photos of her recreating two iconic images of the pair earlier today (November 6).
“This is my rendition of Beyoncé,” she captioned a picture of her dressed in a shoulderless black dress, hat covering her eyes, gold jewellery and two blonde plaits.
She also recreated the cover of Solange’s ‘A Seat At The Table’ album, posing with coloured hair clips in her hair, as The Fader reports. The record was released on September 30 and went to Number One in the US, beating Bon Iver to the top spot.
Last night (November 5), Solange made her debut appearance on SNL. She performed ‘Cranes in the Sky’ and ‘Don’t Touch My Hair’ on the TV show.
Both songs are taken from ‘A Seat at the Table’ – her first full album since ‘Sol-Angel And The Hadley St Dreams’ in 2008 and 2012’s ‘True’ EP.
Sherlock and Dr.Strange star Benedict Cumerbatch hosted the show and introduced Solange before her first live performances of the songs.
‘A Seat At The Table’ features 21 songs, although eight of those are interludes. Guest cameos come from Kelly Rowland, Lil Wayne, Q-Tip, The-Dream, Sampha, Moses Sumney, Dev Hynes, BJ The Chicago Kid, Sean Nicholas Savage, Nia Andrews and Kelela. Solange has described the album as: “A project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing.”
Speaking to The Fader, Solange said of comparisons to Beyoncé’s politically-charged ‘Lemonade’ album: “We have the same mother and the same father. We grew up in the same household, and so we had and heard the same conversations,” she began.
“These very politically-charged, socially-charged conversations… It shouldn’t be surprising that two people who grew up in the same household with the same parents who are very, very aware — just like everyone else is — of all of the inequalities and the pain and suffering of our people right now, would create art that reflects that.”
