However, in the same image posted to her personal Instagram page on Thursday (seen above), Solange is also shown donning a attractive braided crown that didn't make an appearance on the magazine cover.
"Wild that you'd edit a sculpture by an artist", one person commented on the magazine's Instagram page. Instead, the image has been retouched so that she appears to be wearing simple braids which - although handsome in their own right - are only the first layer of the overall look.
The singer is styled in a set of blonde braids, courtesy of Joanne Petit-Frére and the Knowles sisters' longtime collaborator Vernon François.
"I got to experience women arriving in one state of mind and leaving in a completely transformed way".
It's no surprise then that control - over her own body to be exact - is a theme that the singer is thinking about a lot these days. It was about the sisterhood and the storytelling. She also went to great detail to discuss the impact of growing up in her mother's salon in Houston, Texas, highlighting her reminiscent quote in her Instagram stories.
The actual profile includes the edited crown, which is an allusion to the Orion constellation, and references the importance of braiding to Solange.
The 31-year-old "Seat at the Table" singer, who's having the best year of her career thus far, says she's lost out on opportunities because of her demand to "own" her body and how it's shown.
That's been made evident by Solange's latest photoshoot for the Evening Standard Magazine. She told Evening Standard that this ultimately shaped the creative process behind her music and outward appearance.
