It feels like Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been married since the beginning of time, so it’s hard to believe it was only three years ago that they tied the knot. The undisputed reigning king and queen of hip hop and pop, respectively, share a look back at their wedding day in Beyonce’s brand new music video, “I Was Here.” Those of us who covet Bey’s style mourned the hush-hush ceremony, given that we would never see photos of the bride — and, more importantly, her dress. But the new video shows all that and more! A brief shot shows the beaming bride in a stunning strapless gown with a breathtaking train and, unsurprisingly, a bit of cleavage. Oh, Bey! Check out the video for this glimpse, not to mention a behind-the-scenes look at the diva’s life. [TooFab]
Lining the walls of the MTV Voices Dinner were a collection of classic portraits reimagined with celebrity faces. Beyonce was cast as Queen Elizabeth I. We should probably expect the neck ruffle to make a comeback any second now. And Eminem wasn’t looking half bad as a decorated nobleman. I’ve always wanted to see him in epithets. Other portraits included Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez as a pair of Thomas Gainsborough masterpieces (no Mariah Yeater portrait was to be found), Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga. These would be perfect to hang in my salon … if I had one. [MTV]
Beyonce’s known for her lavish and constricting performance costumes, but has her style changed now that she’s expecting a little diva? Well, she still goes for lavish, but the silhouette of her garments is much looser. She still dresses the part of “the hottest chick in the game” on the red carpet, proving that pregnancy doesn’t have to decrease style.
It’s a given that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby is going to be one of the most spoiled children ever to crawl the Earth. Not because his or her parents are out of touch with reality, because they’re stupid rich dagnabbit and so are their friends — why shouldn’t that tyke be spoilt to the core? The latest gift bestowed upon Baby Z? Oh, it was just a $5,200 pink Swarovski crystal bathtub from pal Kelly Rowland, because, oops, she accidentally revealed the sex of the couple’s baby. Read more…
Beyonce and Jay-Z are keeping pretty quiet about the gender of their baby — but Kelly Rowland isn’t!
She says the power couple is having a … girl!
Kelly accidentally let the news slip while dishing to Us Weekly about the difficulty of picking out the perfect present for the baby shower. Read more…
They have one of the most anticipated babies of the last, I dunno, decade on the way, and they’re the reigning King and Queen of hip-hop, so I don’t know why I’m so shocked that Jay-Z and Beyonce are going all out for their first kid. According to BET, Jigga and Bey are adding a 2,200 square foot baby nursery to their NYC apartment. To put that into perspective, that is over THREE TIMES the size of my whole apartment. That is larger than most homes, I would venture to guess. It is also an absurd amount of space for a baby. Keep reading »
Bey, we’re kind of disappointed. We tend to think you “run the world,” so when we saw this pic with Terry Richardson we were a bit dismayed. In case you didn’t know, Bey, Richardson is a noted model fondler and generally creepy dude, who thinks nothing of getting a bit too up close and personal with the girls he shoots. In fact, several models have spoken out against his unprofessional and lecherous behavior.
So, Bey, what gives? You’re pretty much the biggest star in the world, so I’m sure you wield enough power to tell Harper’s Bazaar – for whom Terry shot you — that you’d prefer to work with another photographer. Ah well, there’s always next time. [Fashionista]
First of all, does Beyonce release a new music video every week? Just last week, she debuted the video for “Countdown,” yet this week, she has a new video for the song “Love On Top” — what happened to building suspense? Anyway, Beyonce can’t do anything without paying homage to someone, and this video is no different. Her inspiration comes from a somewhat unlikely place — ’80s boy band New Edition, which was of course fronted by a wee Bobby Brown. “Love On Top” is directly inspired by their video for “If It Isn’t Love,” from the setting (a sun-lit loft space!) to the dance moves. Somewhere out there Whitney Houston is saying “Oh, hell to the no!”
I have been kind of bored by Lucky ever since they got a new Editor-in-Chief, but the November issue actually left me satisfied. There seemed to be more affordable clothes and accessories than usual, I enjoyed the feature on layering, and, HELL YES, Solange Knowles was featured as the month’s “Lucky Girl.” Solange, of course, is Beyonce’s younger sister — or as Dlisted calls her, “Basement Baby” — but ever since our girl Annika introduced me to her awesomeness, I have considered her to be the most stylish Knowles. Case in point: in the Lucky photo, Solange has done her braids up like Janet Jackson in “Poetic Justice,” a movie I loved back in the day (it also stars Tupac!) and am now going to Netflix immediately. Solange, lookin’ good, girl. [Lucky: Tumblr]
