Solange Knowles has returned to the red carpet following that footage of her appearing to attack brother-in-law Jay Z.

The singer walked the (rather amazing) red, blue and purple carpet at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York on Monday evening (2 June).

It marked her first public appearance since CCTV footage was leaked showing Solange lunging towards Jay Z while in an elevator after the Met Ball.

The grainy black and white video was taken inside the lift at New York's Standard Hotel on the night of the glitzy fashion event. There is no audio on the tape but Solange can be seen looking angry as she hits out at Jay Z, who remains relatively still. Solange's sister – and Jay's wife – Beyoncé is also in the video but does not intervene.

The lack of audio means we're still not sure what sparked Solange's annoyance, and the only public comment we've had from the trio was a statement released last month.

It read: "As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it.

"Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologised to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."

The statement continued: "The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behaviour throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day, families have problems and we're no different.

"We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."

As Solange, Jay and Bey have not revealed what sparked the incident, speculation has been running wild over possible causes.

One such rumour is that Kim Kardashian's good friend Rachel Roy fuelled Solange's annoyance by chatting with Jay, although this has not been confirmed.

Rachel was also at last night's CFDA Awards, though there's no word on whether the two ladies crossed paths.
