Look at Beyonce. Look at her. Beyonce is giving me fall wardrobe inspiration in one photo. I love the long boyfriend coat, the black jeans, and the heels. I am looking for the perfect pair of black heels for the fall. Hopefully I can find them soon. I also want to learn how to make me a coat like the one she is wearing a with a funky print. Ahh! It is almost time for fall. Photo from here.
Queen Bey! King Bey! Whatever you call her, she has outdone herself. Beyonce sold 1 million albums in 1 week of her new hit “Beyonce”. The album came as a surprise to everyone when it was released last Friday at midnight with 14 songs and 17 videos. The visual album even has casual Beyonce fans and non-Beyonce fans buying the iTunes exclusive in droves. Kudos to Beyonce. She has clearly slayed the game in ways none of us could imagine. Beyonce is the G.O.A.T.! Photo from here.
Last night’s Met Gala 2013 theme was basically punk rock, and most of the best dressed at the Met Gala took the theme to another level. While most fashionistas were not interested in the theme, I think the punk theme was a great opportunity for the various attendees and designers to show off their creative side. Not every Met Gala attendee always follows the theme, and some end up looking great even though they didn’t follow the theme, but I think it helps to at least try.
While I think there were a lot of best dressed picks to choose from these women really stood out to me. I love the Stella McCartney jumpsuit that Kristen Stewart wore. Miley Cyrus looked the most punked out in her glittery mesh Marc Jacob dress and spiked hair. Rooney Mara was divine in Givenchy and Donatella Versace just looked amazing. Also who is her plastic surgeon? I think she got a new one because she has been looking a lot better lately.
Madonna and Beyonce were the queens of the night in Givenchy. Madonna looked like a punk pin-up and Beyonce looked very Baroque inspired with her corset and making skirt and boot. Coco Rocha gave a very punk turn in an animal printed and feathered Ungaro gown and Jennifer Lopez let her curves do the talking in a Michael Kors dress. Photo from Fashionista.
After I saw Beyonce perform “Grown Woman” in Kenzo last week on the internet, I knew I had to find my closet some kind of something that had that Kenzo look without the Kenzo price. Sawry…this girl’s on a budget! Imagine my surprise when I saw the Printed Wedge Sandal from the Gap in these really cute and funky colors. Gap you really do come through! The wedges are $59.95, but you can get 35% off is you use code GAP35. Y’all better run and get these Printed Wedge Sandals! Photo from here.

While Beyonce is busy touring for the Mrs. Carter Show over in Europe, she decided to low key drop two songs this week. Now we have a snippet of “Standing on the Sun” from Beyonce’s new fashion campaign for the H&M Summer Collection 2013. She looks amazing in the video dancing around on the beach and twirling in the sand with different color weaves and bikinis. She is definitely living the life.
Her fans had been clamoring for a new single though. They are getting downright impatient. That is what she had promised them late last year. We had only heard the snippet of Grown Woman in the new Pepsi commercial. We still only have this snippet of “Standing on the Sun”, but she has started to perform “Grown Woman” in full during her concert tour. Check out an HD clip on B Scott’s website. She looks absolutely fabulous in Kenzo. Don’t you think?
It looks like Beyonce is getting a lot of love on this blog, but it is officially Bey Season…so uh…duh! This is the second time she has posed for Vogue. While I think the pictures are beautiful and show a more mature Beyonce, I also think they are just a tad bit dowdy. She is only in her early 30s. I would expect this photo shoot for a star in her 40s maybe. Either way Bey Season is here, so get ready for the Beyonce onslaught! Check out the rest of the photos at Vogue.com.
I am super psyched to see and hear Beyonce at the Super Bowl. I want to see her costumes. I want to know it DC3, aka Destiny’s Child, will come out and perform a medley. If Beyonce performs one of her brand new songs I could just akldhklashdkfhksdhsasdkhsl! I’m completely and utterly losing it. That is how excited I am. I don’t even care who wins the game. Game… what game? I am only here for the one and only Beyonce. These behind the scenes practice videos have me even more hyped. ZOMG I can’t breathe.
Bey Season is officially heeeeerrreee! Beyonce is back! She is about to drop a new single off of her new album, she has a new Pepsi deal, and she is about to perform at the Super Bowl. SO what does a singer who needs more promotion do… She poses half naked on the cover of GQ. Beyonce… girl…I ain’t mad at you. Go ‘head with your BaddieBey self.
Anthony Vaccarello’s Black Draped Techno Satin Long Dress is a dream come true, Seen on celebs like Gweneth Paltrow and Beyonce, this dress is amazing. Unfortunately it comes in one size and costs $4738!!! Yikes!!!! It is available at Luisa Via Roma. I guess my Beyonce fantasies are on hold. A girl can dream though…. Photo from Lyst.
Ummm… Beyonce definitely gets this week’s Bad Bish honors for all the style and flare she possessed at last week’s Revel concerts. This is a complete comeback after losing 60 pounds and getting the guts to sing and dance again just four months after giving birth to Blue Ivy or Fair Oaks as my daddy calls her. Photo from The Cut.
P.S. This is the last day to enter the Leading Lady Bra contest.
Check out Beyonce at the 2012 Met Gala Awesomeness indeed. Photo from Billion Dollar Baby.

A few days ago, I showed you the preview for this video. Here is the final product. I love it. Beyonce is amazing. I had to play this video a second time because I loved it so much, and I will probably watch it again. I must perfect my booty pop. What are your thoughts?
I am totally loving the preview for Beyonce’s “Countdown” video. It is mod and cute, and fashionable. It reminds me of her “Get me Bodied” video. My favorite part is her reference to Audrey Hepburn’s “Funny Face.” What do you all think?

Living in New York City you have to a have an appreciation for vintage. Although I’m a trendy shopper every now and then I enjoy frequent trips with my girlfriends to consignment shops all around the city. Recently, I caught this really cute vintage 1982 Christian Dior cropped checked blazer on one of my vintage hunts and believe it or not the label wasn’t what caught my attention about the jacket. It was the enormous and extra sleek shoulder pads that caught my eye.
Hey everyone. I just want to introduce Ariel. She is another one of my awesome interns who will be writing about the latest trends. Ariel really has an eye for what is hot, so give a her a big welcome. Also check out her blog Twenty Two Couture.
I know lots of women are really intimidated of wearing sheer. The see-through fabric makes the most of us self-conscious about our physical attributes because of its ability to expose our most sacred body parts. Sheer is the perfect fabric for this time of year because its so free flowing. What makes it even better is that now more designers are taking action against the average female’s intimidation of sheer and are creating more appropriate ways to combine the sheer with casual wear.
Recently Beyonce wore a Valentino Couture sheer top while out to dinner in NYC and like many others I was in awe. Her top was almost completely sheer with a nude undertone but had embellishments so she wouldn’t be completely naked. She looked so sleek yet edgy and for the first time ever barely there clothing didn’t look so trashy.
Olivia Wilde and Katy Perry also both rocked this look on red carpets, Olivia looked sophisticated in her almost full-frontal sheer Marchesa gown. This trend is slowly gaining its edge on the market and for the woman who likes to be daring and add an edge to her normal skinnys jeans and tank, go for this look. You’ll be sure to turn heads. Photos from People Style Watch, Topshop, and Love 21.

I love all of the pinup Betty Page looks in this video. This has been a recent theme for her in her latest videos. Go Beyonce for doing something different as far as the way the video looks. Check out this video.
