The Knowles sisters are having the best week ever!

Beyonce just gave birth to her first child (aka the most famous baby in the world) Blue Ivy Carter and now comes news that Solange has signed a contract with Next Model Management.

Vogue UK announced the news and calls Solange "the next big thing"...we agree!

Between singing, DJing, acting and raising her adorable son Julez, Solange is quickly becoming a style star. We love a gal that knows how to rock big hair and bold colors with confidence and sophistication.

It was only a matter of time that a major modeling agency snatched up the 25-year-old beauty. Not only has she modeled for Armani Jeans and her sister's clothing line House of Dereon, Solange is also a face of Rimmel London and Carol's Daughter.

"Artistic expression is invaluable to me in all walks of my career and I am so excited to continue to develop this path along with such an amazing team at Next Model Management," Knowles told Vogue UK. "I feel right at home working with people who have worked beside such creative forces in the world."

We'll definitely be seeing more of Solange in 2012. In the meantime, take a trip down memory land--here's a look at the star's style evolution.
