Solange Knowles celebrated her 26th birthday yesterday and we congratulated the singer with her 26 best looks of the last year. Beyonce's little sis spent the special day in Croatia with friends where she had been doing a photoshoot. She tweeted a photo of herself soaking up the sun with the caption "I gotta say, today was a good day" as well as the longer message: "My heart was warmed. The day I was born was blessed beyond measure. I am infinitely thankful. My gratitude runs deep. I danced with my son. I also busted a piñata of a chili pepper a boot and a bee".
The birthday girl also received best wishes from big sister Bey who posted a flashback photo on her Instagram account of the two siblings as children with the note, "Happy Birthday to my Thu Thu!!" We're not entirely sure what a Thu Thu is but we're guessing it's a long-standing family nickname for Solange. How cute are the Knowles sisters!?!
Paris Hilton teamed up with 'The Bling Ring' director Sofia Coppola for the latest edition of Elle US. Coppola returned to Hilton's home, which makes a cameo in the movie, to shoot the heiress for the magazine. As well as capturing the interior and exterior of the star's LA mansion, she also took photos of Paris' personalised possessions including a pink surfboard and cushions with her face on. Hilton referred to Coppola as "a brilliant director & photographer!"
