Solange Knowles Grammys Dress 2013: Singer Wears High-Slit Green Gown And Awesome Afro (PHOTOS)

We were shocked to see Beyonce opt for a surprisingly toned-down look at the 55th annual Grammy Awards Sunday night. The singer, who donned a black-and-white jumpsuit, left the glitz and glam to the other stars, one of which was her sister, Solange Knowles.

We have watched, reported and admired Solange's bold, singular style over the past year and she did not disappoint on music's biggest night. The singer/DJ/model stepped out in an emerald green couture gown by Ralph & Russo, complete with an eye-catching high slit, displaying one of her gorgeous gams. The crystal-encrusted creation sparkled with her move as she worked her way down the red carpet in hot pink pumps.

And while Solange's was certainly stunning, it's her hair that really stole the show. The 26-year-old could certainly be considered an afro aficionado -- her high volume hairdos are countless and varied. For last night's event, Solange channeled Diana Ross' supreme beauty with a full head of teased curl, but updated the look with a short bang.
