Because she exudes style just by standing in front of the perfect background and snapping the perfect pic....we're loving Solange Knowles' newest 'grams from The Boot (Louisiana that is).  Check 'em inside....

While working on new music, Solange is chillin' in New Iberia (a beautifully quiet, country city in southern Louisiana).  And we have a feeling she's drawing up some home fried soul, yet ethereal type music we're gonna love on Saint Records.

The youngest Knowles sister recently moved from Brooklyn to New Orleans -- a couple hours from New Iberia -- and is submersing herself in the culture.  While switching up wigs and cute eclectic looks, she said:

"Talk about a change of scenery. Less than 24 hours ago I was in New York dj'n at a turnt up Super Bowl Playboy, and @Buffalojeans party. Now I'm back in mellow Cajun Country on enjoying this grey day and working on my album. #vibes"
 

Can't wait to hear what she's got cooked up....

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Every Commercial That Aired During Super Bowl 2014 + More

Posted: 03 Feb 2014 05:08 AM PST

The Seattle Seahawks waited 38 years--the entire span of their franchise--to win a Super Bowl.  QB Russell Wilson and his team were on a mission and won it in a landslide last night.  But it's the commercials during the game we were mostly here for.  Check out every single commercial that aired inside....

The theme this year for those $4 million Super Bowl ad spots seemed to be 'heartwarming'.  From the "America, the Beautiful" ad that spanned several languages and probably pissed off right wingers galore....to the painfully adorable puppy and Clydesdale #BestBuds commercial....to the expanding bi-racial family in the Cheerios ad....to little Quvenzhane Wallis narrating the powerful Maserati commercial, it seemed that this year's commercials were all about the message.

But our fave funny commercials: Cure Insurance pulling a Richard Sherman on the Geico Lizard, Diddy and co. pushing Time Warner Cable, and reliving the 80's in that Radio Shack commercial.

There's more where that came from.  Check out all 63 commercials below:
