Normally Michelle Williams is the person in Beyoncé's sphere who is regarded with the most pity. Over the weekend, however, that distinction went to Solange Knowles, whom God would not allow to be more beautiful than her sister, even on her wedding day.

Following an elegant, white-clad celebration photographed for Vogue, Solange apparently suffered an allergic reaction that caused her to break out in hives on the car ride home.

It is not known what caused Solange's face to erupt in welts. Nor is it known why Beyoncé—radiant as always, though particularly resplendent in bridal white—was spared.

Poor Solange.

Poor Michelle.
