Bow down


And yet SHE dropped an entire visual album while most of us were asleep last night.

Download it on iTunes while I exit to get my life together…

King Bey. HBO. February 16.

Will you be watching? I know I’m going to be all up in the tv!

“Power is not given to you. You have to take it. You’re playing a part in a much bigger show. And…that’s what life is.”

– Beyonce, Life is but a Dream

HERE’S one of my all-time favorite performances from Mrs. Carter, and HERE’S the brand new release from Destiny’s Children.

Wait a minute.

I believe ‘Girls Run the World,’ and I love to Party’…but do you mean to tell me the same person who reportedly appears on the cover of next month’s GQ in what my grandmother would call “drawers” and 25% of a tee shirt is the SAME person who will be singing the National Anthem at the President’s inauguration on January 21st?

I know this is her year, with a Super Bowl performance, an HBO documentary, an insane Pepsi deal AND new music on the way. I respect her hustle and her talent, and I let her slide one time – but Baddie Bey: please, put on some clothes!

After all: Blue Ivy, Malia, Sasha and the OMG Girlz (pictured above) are watching.

*Gets off soapbox*


For the record, I drink Coca-Cola exclusively and I’m available! I kid, I kid. Sort of.

Mrs. Shawn Carter reportedly inked a $50 million dollar deal and will be featured on limited edition series of cans, which will be released in Europe first. Haute!

But where are her pants?

We Admit It

…we’re officially jealous of Beyonce and her post-baby body.  Chick is svelte and undeniably FABULOUS, stepping out last night for hubby Jay-Z’s concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall (one month after giving birth to baby Blue Ivy!).  Check out NY Daily News’ coverage here.  Her curve-hugging ruched “Molina” dress is by Alice  By Temperley, and the killer pumps are by Christian Louboutin.

Sister Act: Beyonce & Solange Knowles

Fashionable sisters Beyonce and Solange Knowles were recently named to Vogue Magazine’s 2011 Best Dressed List.  The duo, who just hit up New York Fashion Week’s Spring 2012 shows, are known for their edgy, distinctive style.  Solange, who is a dj, mommy to Julez and one of the faces of Carol’s Daughter, wows in her her Prabal Gurung for J. Crew ensemble.  And soon-to-be mommy and singer/actress/designer/fragrance creator Beyonce is a quick change artist in beige sequins, then a beige leather and tulle ruffled mini.  Flawless hair and makeup for both complete the looks.

Haute or Not? Queen Latifah and Beyonce Launch Lines

Queen Latifah recently launched an apparel line via HSN…and the results are decidedly…meh…for someone who has access to the creme de la creme of fashion and admitted to New York Magazine that she has “expensive taste.” Prices range from $269.90 for the asymmetrical zip jacket , $89.90 for the knit poncho, and $299 for the studded patent-patch satchel.  

Um…we’ll pass.

 And in other label launch news, if the news that the House of Dereon is up for sale made you jump for joy, sit back down.  The tea is that Mama Tina’s Houston-area digs are on the market.  Ms. Knowles and the expectant Mrs. Knowles-Carter have revamped and relaunched (yes, again) their couture line and released it exclusively through Selfridge’s of London. The line features toned-down casual separates and you can view the pieces here.

And again, we’ll pass…unless Bey’s bedazzled suit becomes available.

Don’t Let This be You: Jessica White

We’re not sure if model Jessica White is newly engaged or just being coy, but she flashed a huge rock  while strolling the black carpet for Beyonce’s Pulse fragrance launch recently…and then we saw her manicure (or lack of one).  Ladies, jacked up polish does nothing for your look.  Too many brands offer quick-drying nail polishes now, which means there’s no excuse for showing up anywhere like this.
