The ink has barely dried on Solange Knowles' Next Model Management contact and she has already started hitting the catwalk.

Beyonce's little sis jetted off to Milan this past weekend where she attended the Dolce & Gabanna Fall 2012 menswear presentation and capped off the trip by walking in the Alberta Ferretti "Limited Edition" demi-couture collection fashion show.

Like a seasoned pro, Solange worked the winding runway in a floor-sweeping silver gown with a beaded scoop neckline, fiery red lips and a perfectly pin-wheel curled afro.

Fellow natural hair beauties Julia Sarr-Jamois of Wonderland magazine and Oroma Elewa editor of Pop’Africana also served as models.

We don't know about you, but we're excited to see Solange start logging some catwalk miles.

She recently opened up about her new career with Vogue Italia explaining: "I don't by any means consider myself the most qualified for model material. I think that people tend to respond to what is real. Black women carry that flame with so much ease and confidence. It is being captured and celebrated on all fronts in fashion now."
