The 25 minutes of bonus footage on Beyonce's DVD of her I Am World tour includes plenty of priceless moments, but we have a favorite: watching her work with Thierry Mugler on her costumes. The design "control freak" in Beyonce led to a few strange requests, including her asking the designer to make a black gown into a wedding-dress-type white piece that she could wear during "Ave Maria." Another fun fact? Mugler designed Beyonce's gown, but the singer's mum, Tina Knowles, came in after to modify them so they could be danced in.
Blake Lively looked chic in this nude Versace dress and multi strap metallic Christian Louboutin heels last night to attend the launch of Lorraine Schwartz's '2BHAPPY' jewellery collection at Lavo hosted by Beyonce.
Lou Doillon isn't the only person involved in the secret unveiling of Tom Ford's womenswear collection. Recent reports claim that all of the models taking part are famous, with the line-up reportedly including Victoria Beckham and Beyonce.
Despite the recent leak of information, Ford is keeping quiet about everything else and is making sure all attendees do too. Those involved have been asked to sign a confidentiality agreement and only one photographer, who is working directly under Ford, has been allowed to take photographs. The bad news? Don't expect to see images of the collection until they hit stores in January as the designer doesn't want to fall victim of high street copies and counterfeit imitations.
Halle Berry hasn't given a proper interview in three years and her last commercial film was more than four years ago but she decided to break her silence and front US Vogue's September issue; the fact that it was the September issue undoubtedly helped. "What that means for a woman of colour and what that means in the fashion world, what that means to pop culture, there was no way I could say, 'No, I'm not going to be on the biggest issue of the year'," she said.
This is Berry's second US Vogue cover - she first fronted it in 2002 - and the second time a black person has covered the magazine's September issue since it was founded in 1892. Naomi Campbell was the first to bag the big September issue in 1989 and unfortunately it was the magazine's worst selling issue. Beverley Johnson was the first black person on the cover in 1974, Oprah made her cover debut in 1998 and Jennifer Hudson followed in 2007 and Beyonce in 2009.
The first pictures from Beyonce's House of Dereon line are out. Instead of following the less-is-more trend we've seen this season, Knowles has decided to go all out with fake tattoos and black leather.
I initially was involved as the spokesperson, but the clothes just didn't reflect my personal style and I decided to hand that over. That's the great thing about my family. We work together so closely that if something's not working out, we can be honest about it and there won't be any grudges or issues...
