If you’re Beyonce, you can pretty much do whatever you want to do — and that includes crashing one of the most important events on the New York social calendar, the Met Costume Institute Ball. It seems Bey wasn’t planning on going at all, but then that purple Givenchy gown showed up at her house that evening (because gowns are always just showing up at Beyonce’s house, apparently) and poof! She changed her mind. As her date, Andre Leon Talley explained, “Beyonce was not slated to come. She decided to come last minute when the dress arrived at her house. She tried it on and then she said, ‘Okay, I have to come.’ She did arrive at 8:55 and the ball had already started, but it didn’t matter because she is Beyonce.” How true, A.L.T., how true.

Beyonce has landed the title and cover of People‘s World’s Most Beautiful Woman issue, a fairly BS accolade, but hey, it’s the first time in nine years that a black woman has “won” so that’s something. Beyonce tells the mag that she does indeed feel beautiful, and more so than ever since giving birth to baby Blue Ivy. ”I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth,” she said of being a mom. “The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy. The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.” Aww, cute. [People]

Meet Beyonce. The other Beyonce, that is. Beyonce is currently the world’s tiniest puppy; she’s so tiny, in fact, that she can fit in a mug. Mind you, she’s only five weeks old, so at some point, she is not going to be the world’s tiniest puppy. But let’s not ruin her moment of fame, okay? Watch her appearance (along with her slightly bigger siblings) and learn about her harrowing story, after the jump! Keep reading »

Yesterday, Beyonce quietly launched her own Tumblr, which features a bunch of personal photos from the last few years of life, pre-Blue Ivy. Basically, it is a place I want to go to, i.e. Beyonce’s life according to her Tumblr. There’s snugglin’ on a boat with Jay-Z! Gossiping with lil’ sis Solange! Playing in the sand with her nephew! Cigar smoking! Check out a few of my fave pics in this slideshow and then check out the rest at Beyonce’s official Tumblr.

I’m going to put aside being annoyed with Beyonce and Jay-Z for releasing photos of their daughter Blue Ivy after the work week has ended because bloggers never sleep. Because look at that face. Blue Ivy Carter is gorgeous. I love the fact that Jay and Beyonce did not sell photos of their newborn child, that they released them personally via a small Tumblr blog, thanking the public for respecting their privacy “during this beautiful time in our lives.” I love that Blue Ivy is simply swaddled in a blanket, not adorned with some ridiculous headband, and, in the rest of the photos that you’ll see as you click through, just basking in the love of her parents. Blue, in my opinion, looks just like Beyonce, but her eyes are all Jay. Maybe I’m hormonal, but I’m getting a little teary writing this. Yay, babies!
If there’s any universally flattering color, it’s blue. There’s a shade to match anyone’s coloring and, done right, a really bright blue looks good on everyone. It sounds perilous, especially for those who don’t typically sport neon colors, but why not integrate a flashy cyan by confining it to a truly risk-free area like, say, your nails? Regardless of what you wear, even (and especially) if it’s your most buttoned-up work attire, bright blue nails are a wink to your more daring side. Take it from Beyoncé, who’s been wearing the shade out and about in a nod to her daughter, Blue Ivy. See, there must be something to it! These are my five picks for the boldest blues — what’s your favorite? If one catches your eye, I’ve included the purchasing information after the jump. Keep reading »
