Photo by Freddy O Exclusively for Sandrarose.com

My photographer Freddy O and I were invited by Peachtree TV’s Sarah Schmitz to capture exclusive behind the scenes shots of Monica and friends while she filmed her new reality TV series, “Monica: The Single”, on Friday (6/20).

During a break in the filming, Monica joined her cousin Ludacris, Solange, Bryan Michael Cox and Peachtree TV execs at Luda’s new restaurant, Straits. It turns out Solange is a Sandrarose.com reader. She said, “YOU’RE THAT FREDDY O BOY?!”, when introduced to my photographer at the restaurant following her performance at The Tabernacle last night.

We here at Sandrarose.com love the new direction Solange has taken her music in. She can’t help who her sister is. It took courage to abandon the trail blazed by her sister to develop a musical style all her own. And we LOVE it!

We also love Solange’s fashion sense. Here she poses with Ludacris at his restaurant last night. Her shoes are Marni and the bag is by Gucci. I couldn’t find the bag online so if someone could help me with the price I’ll edit this post. More pics on Monday!

Product details below:

Marni Platform Sandals
Sandal in shiny patent calf leather. Two small buckled belts slide into metal slots respectively placed on a raw-edged band round the heel and on two edges rising laterally from the sole and wrapping up the toes. The shape of the sole is really peculiar: it actually looks like a leaf if seen from above.

$344

  • AlwaysSweet

    I love them DAMN SHOES!

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    SHE LOOKS VERY NICE, AS DOES LUDA. YOU JUST HAVE TO MAKE SIDEWAYS REMARKS ABOUT BEYONCE, HUH? I GUESS IT MAKES YOU SLEEP BETTER.

  • ckarinwhite

    I love the dress, not feeling the shoes…

  • ThatCarmen

    She has grown so independent. Im so proud of her. One up to H-town. Her outfit is hot.

  • MAJAHINEVERYWAY

    I don’t really like the shoes, but she looks cute though. The bag is definitely HOT though.

  • luxe.li.

    Loving Solange. Luda looks a tad bit constipated, but he’s doing it big though.

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    I got “sandcastle disco” on repeat.

  • shannon04

    Cute shoes..but seriously with this economy being the way that it is now most people couldnt even squeeze the price of these shoes in their budget. Considering that gas is so high and most of us are already cutting corners each and every way we can. They are cute but I will have to pass.

  • shhhh

    Love Solange but does NOT love her fashion sense. Sorry!!! You’re right SR, she can’t help who her sister is, lol.

    i actually like solange in this pic and luda restaurant is banging the food and service was excellent when i went

  • mjoylaw

    um, Solo does look nice here for a change

    she is in her sister’s shadow and anybody can sympathize with that

    That said, does she have any talent to stand on her own..hmmm

    “independent?” What money has Solange made? I guess her parents support her and her son?

    Solange needs to find and get on her own grind…whatever it may be..maybe go to college and get a real job? Ion know..

  • mjoylaw

    BTW, WTF is up with celebs and these big azz bags? They all rockin ’em, from Halle, to Rihanna, to Bey, errybody..

    Um, what’s up with all the Monica posts? How is she relevant? Is she a sponsor? I’m just sayin..it’s been a minute since Monica was out..except on here!

  • chocolatechild

    Solange is really doin’ her thing now…You go GIRL!

  • London Marie

    * sings sandcastle disco* ” Baby I know you do that to all the girls, know that i’m fragile.. babe, ba ba bae baby.. dont blow me away.” I LOVE SOLANGE.. ALWAYS HAVE.. She’s a cute girl with great personal style..

  • Sharonda

    I’m not mad at Solange.She actually setting herself apart from the females out right now with her style overall.Great to see something different for a change.

    ———————————————————— I GUESS YOU MISSED THE MEMO, SOLANGE IS A SONGWRITER, DANCER, SINGER. MICHELE’S NEW SINGLE WAS WRITTEN BY SOLANGE, SOME OF BEYONCE’S HIT’S WERE CO-WRITTEN BY SOLANGE. PROUD FAMILY THEME SONG, WRITTEN BY SOLANGE, SOEM WAL MART COMMERCIALS, WRITTEN BY SOLANGE. SHE HAS ENOUGH TALENT TO TAKE CARE OF HER AND HER CHILD. YOU KNOW ROYALTIES ARE CONTINUOUS. DON’T SLEEP ON SOLANGE, MATHEW RAIDES SOME SMART GIRLS FROM WHAT I SEE.

  • London Marie

    Yeah solange wrote Get me bodied and upgrade you. She’s no dummy. The girl has talent. It just took her several years for people to see her pass being Beyonce’s sister. They are both successful women with totally different career paths. Solange has a funky, soul vibe. I love it.

    She is revelant to us in “The A”!!!

    Solange looks okay. Can’t wait to see more from her!!

  • http://www.myspace.com/amax79 AKAtastrophy1908

    SOLANGE IS IMPRESSIVE. CAN’T WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON THE CD (AND I DON’T OWN ONE BEYONCE CD BECAUSE OF OVEREXPOSURE BUT I HAVE ALL THE DESTINY’S CHILD’S CDs. HER SON HAS HIS OWN MONEY WITH HIS BRAND OF TOYS AND KIDS STUFF AND SOLANGE HAS SONGWRITER MONEY (GO GIRL- WHO KNOW, SHE IS PROBABLY ONE OF JAYZ’S GHOSTWRITERS, YOU KNOW THEY ALL COMING OUT THE CLOSET N YOUTUBE). AT ANY RATE, SHE IS DOING IT HER WAY AND I LOVE IT …HER FASHION SENSE IS SICK TOO (WITHOUT THE FAKE BUTT). I FIND MYSELF GOING STRAIGHT TO HER SHOE GAME.

    …AND IT DON’T BE THAT TACKY HOUSE OF DEREON FOOLISHNESS EITHER.

  • http://notenoughrealmen.blogspot.com 2thick4u

    Her shoes are HOT!!!

    First thing I noticed!!!

    I love Solange new single…”I Decided”!!!!

    Luda baby what’s wrong? He looking like he hurting!!!

  • brwnsugga4you

    the shoes are hot!!!..however, i went to the show friday at the tabernacle…and her performance was just okay..wasn’t anything to tell anybody about. she’s going to have a hard time getting out from behind her sister’s spotlight.

  • MOCHAMOMMY

    Again, Sandra, when do u take ur own photos? Poor Freddy O is workin like a slave!!

    Sorry, I dont care about Solange too much. She is gonna have a hella hard time being Beyonce Jr.

  • brwnsugga4you

    the thing about it..she needs to change her image w/the bey hair and all of that. plus when she sings..she sounds and moves like her..it was a little scary..lol. however, she tried..but, the tabernacle audience showed her no love…chrisette michelle did her thing!

  • ggouch

    Am I the only one who finds this curious….I am a little extra emotional this morning….

    She reads SandraRose.com…. and all she said was “YOU’RE THAT FREDDY O BOY?!”….????? AS much as you hate on her big sister that is all she had to say?!!…..Solange you’re a punk….but a smart punk!! you must have not wanted to unleash the hate your way…uhm…ok…I guess…well if SandraRose.com is honey baby to you then it’s honey baby to me..if it’s MuthaF**KER to you than it’s MuthaF**Ker to me,
