Ty Hunter Talks The Mrs. Carter Show 2014

Klaudia//February 12, 2014
To say that Ty Hunter is rad would be the understatement of the year. The Houston-bred stylist -- who lives in Harlem -- started working with Destiny's Child when, uh, there was still such a thing as Destiny's Child. And he's now responsible not only for the creative direction of Beyonce's video and performance ensembles (sparkly Saint Laurent tights, included), but her personal ones too (remember that white Michael Costello number she wore to the Grammys? You can thank Ty for that).

We caught up with Hunter in the front row of Naeem Khan's stunning, shine-heavy fall '14 show Tuesday (where he hung out with fellow music styling master June Ambrose as Padma Lakshmi, Teen Wolf star Holland Roden and Disney darling Debby Ryan kicked it nearby) to find out how the man responsible for dressing the woman whose outfit selfies reach 10,000,000 Instagram followers does fashion week.

Pret-a-Reporter: Will you be in L.A. for any Oscars festivities?

Ty Hunter: No, we're heading back on tour on 16th in the UK and we'll be gone for a month.

PaR: Does this mean that the world will have a whole new set of Beyonce costumes/outfits/everything to stalk, er, pay attention to every day?

TH: The new album is going to be affiliated with . And most of the designers we've already used on the tour are revamping their looks. So they'll be some new costumes for sure. It will be exciting!

Beyonce's Stylist Ty Hunter Talks GRAMMY Looks

Klaudia//January 29, 2014
Aside from Pharrell’s Vivienne Westwood hat, all eyes were on Beyonce at the 2014 Grammy Awards. From Her ultra sexy La Perla Spring 2013 performance number to her white sheer Michael Costello fishnet gown, Bey stole the show. That sexy wet performance will not soon be forgot. Those moves and looks were perfection.

But it’s no surprise that Queen Bey stunned at the show. She is one of the best-dressed ladies in music with famed stylist Ty Hunter behind her dazzling outfits. Fresh off styling Bey for the Grammys, Ty caught up with us to give his take on her Grammy look and reveal her favorite fashion item.

Billboard: What inspired the opening look? Was there a specific image or person you looked to?

Hunter: The style team—comprised of Raquel Smith and Timothy White (Karen Langley helped with the performance outfit)—wanted to emulate the video with a different spin. Kim Kimble did her hair, but it was all coming from the “Drunk In Love” video. Just trying to bring an even more sophisticated look to the stage.

We love the wet hair. Why did you choose this wet look?

The style team wanted to go for sexy and elegant.

Beyoncé’s Visual Album: All the Exclusive Hair Details

Klaudia//December 26, 2013
There are certain indisputable truths in life, and the fact that Beyoncé can pull off just about any look is one of them. In the videos for her eponymous visual album, the star showcased a wide variety of hairstyles, ranging from her pixie that rocked the world to her trademark long waves — and just about everything in between. Eager to get the details on each look, we caught up with Bey’s hairstylist Neal Farinah, who created 15 out of the 17 dynamic looks for her videos, and has been working with Knowles for seven years. “We have had such iconic moments together,” he told exclusively. “I’ve worked on campaign and publication shoots with her, she was the first female artist to headline at Glastonbury, and I had the opportunity to do her hair for both presidential inaugurations. It was a historic moment — she sang for Barack Obama and the First Lady, and it was hard to explain how I felt at that moment, because while I was doing her hair, I feel like I was representing everyone, and I felt proud and very grateful.”

As if working on 15 of her new videos didn’t keep him busy enough, Farinah was simultaneously working with Beyoncé during her Mrs. Carter World Tour. Filming often took place on the same day as a show, and the multiple hair changes — her pixie and long bob included — always kept fans guessing what she’d try next. “People were seeing her with long hair one day, short hair one day, and they didn’t know what was happening. We’d work on the videos while on tour, so sometimes we didn’t have much time to go back and redo her hair,” he said. “People were speculating, but what she was doing was working on her masterpiece of a visual album.”

We asked Farinah to give us the details behind each of her versatile hairstyles, and to find out the inspiration behind each of the looks, including her long, sexy waves in “Jealous,” and her ombre bob in the artistic “Mine” video.

Frida Giannini About Designing for Beyoncé

Klaudia//August 9, 2013
For her three performances last weekend at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center—which is co-owned by her husband Jay Z, who also made a surprise appearance at the last show—Beyoncé pulled out all the stops. The three performances marked the end of the first American leg of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, so Bey celebrated by donning not one but two custom looks desinged by Gucci creative director Frida Giannini.

First up: an embroidered mini-dress embellished with metallic sequins and feathers in a “degrade effect” from taupe to deep red. Then Bey closed out her show in an embroidered three quarter sleeve V-neck optical beaded top and white silk stretch trousers.

“Designing for Beyoncé was great fun as she always puts on an amazing live show,” Giannini said in a statement. “I wanted the outfits to bring to life the assertive, powerful femininity I see in her performances. Her sheer talent, work ethic and uncompromised authenticity are her defining characteristics.”

According to Hollywood Life, Gucci confirmed that there’s more concert couture in store with the Italian designer and the Grammy-winning artist, as Beyonce will be debuting even more custom looks during the Latin American leg of her international tour, which kicks off on September 8 in Brazil.

Check out the sketches of the two outfits the singer wore at the Barclays Center in the gallery.

Beyoncé's Stylist Talks New Hair & Video Shoot

Klaudia//August 9, 2013
When Beyoncé posted the cut seen ’round the world on Instagram last night, there was one person more shocked than most: Her stylist Kim Kimble.

Kimble, the star of We TV’s L.A. Hair and Beyoncé’s longtime stylist, had drawn up a whole hair concept for a video they were shooting together this weekend — and now she has to go back to the drawing board.

“I had a whole plan laid out … I wanted to do a retro ‘50s type of hair. I feel like there’s going to be a meeting soon!” she tells PEOPLE, laughing. “It won’t be the long, wavy, typical hair, but I’m really excited to do something different. No matter what, she knows I’ll give her what she wants!”

Kimble says her reaction upon seeing the new do on Instagram Wednesday night was more than surprised — it was emotional. “I got a little teary eyed!” she confesses. “I’ve been working for her so long, she has this beautiful long hair and it’s hard to grow hair out. I feel like it’s my hair, I work so much with her. I feel a little emotional but excited for her too. Maybe I’ll cut my hair off now. Short hair, don’t care!”

And despite many commenters speculating Beyoncé just removed her weave or extensions, Kimble says, “She had great, thick long hair, which she cut off because she’s ready to make a statement. It’s a great to make: I’m beautiful, sexy, bold and I can do it all. She’s the perfect model for that: A working woman, mom, superstar, businesswoman. She’s powerful in herself. “

So what does Kimble have in mind for this particular superstar at Saturday’s video shoot? She’s still working on the concept, but she’s excited to experiment with the star’s new “easy, effortless style” — whether she plays up her natural curls or goes for something more sleek — and she plans to experiment with grooming creams, waxes and her own shine serum.

But regardless of what anyone else thinks of the style “It had to be her decision,” Kimble says. “This was a big step, and it’s perfect timing.”

Beyonce Gets a Pixie Cut!

Klaudia//August 9, 2013

Beyonce is redefining the "Pixie Dream Girl" stereotype. On Wednesday, Aug. 7, the 31-year-old "Grown Woman" singer made headlines when she ditched her long locks in favor of a blonde pixie 'do. No explanation was offered along with the Instagram pictures of her new hair, but her colorist, Rita Hazan, tells Us Weekly it's a sign of Queen Bey's self-confidence.

"I was shocked. I think she was just feeling empowered, like a strong woman, and she said she's been feeling it for a long time," Hazan says of the star's stunning cropped coif. "She didn't want to hide behind her hair in real life."

In fact, Beyonce's long extensions have become a big part of her onstage persona. But Hazan, for one, loves the new look. "I'm so happy because the extensions give women the wrong expectation of what their hair should look like -- it's great for onstage, but everyday women shouldn't have or want to have five pounds of hair on their head," she tells Us. "This hair is more natural, more realistic."

It's also much lighter -- in more ways than one. Before Beyonce debuted the 'do, her hair "was a honey blonde, a darker blonde," Hazan explains. " it took some time to do -- like four hours -- because we wanted to keep her natural color at the root so it would grow out well. We made it a champagne blonde -- it's very old Hollywood, like a Marilyn Monroe blonde."

"This shade shows women of every color that they can wear this shade. Just make sure that it's healthy -- healthy hair will keep the color longer," she adds. "My personal thought is that every woman can be blonde as long as it's the right shade of blonde for your skin color. And Beyonce pulls it off!"

Behind the Seams with Beyonce's Go-To Stylist

Klaudia//July 13, 2013

The Hook’s Gregory DelliCarpini Jr. sat down with Beyonce’s stylist Ty Hunter to chat all things fashion, red carpets and Sasha Fierce.

Ty, the man behind Beyonce’s ferocious style, has been working with the singer for over 16 years.

“I was working in a store in Houston and I met Ms. Tiny and we just clicked instantly,” He revealed to Billboard. “I had a day off and called her to see if she needed help. The rest is history. The next week I was at the Grammys.”

From the famed metal glove she rocked in the “Single Ladies” video, to the plush gown she wore to sing “The Star Spangled Banner” during President Barack Obama’s second inauguration, Ty’s been Bey’s secret weapon behind her iconic looks.

An early encounter with stunning Motown legend Diana Ross sparked his interest in style. “My mom and dad took me to see Diana Ross and I was in awe of all the costume changes and the hair. I became a fan right away and that’s what steered me into fashion.”

Above, watch Ty break down his top 10 Beyonce looks of all time and open up about his favorite red carpet moment.

Mrs. Carter’s New Squeeze

Klaudia//June 30, 2013
Beyoncé—superstar, tastemaker, Givenchy flame-wearer—kicked off the U.S. leg of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in L.A. on June 28. She already debuted a wealth of flashy wares in Europe, like custom costumes by The Blonds, David Koma, Dsquared², and Emilio Pucci. But, for her Stateside performances, Mrs. Carter is adding a few sartorial surprises. And she tapped emerging Israeli designer Alon Livné to make them.

The pair ignited their creative relationship back in February after Beyoncé’s stylists, Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith, attended the 27-year-old’s debut New York Fashion Week presentation. Smith reported back to Bey, who quickly fell in love with with one of Livné’s metal-embellished Pre-Fall gowns, and requested customized versions—in red—for her and her backup dancers to wear on the tour.

Based in Tel Aviv, where he owns two stores, Livné returned to New York earlier this month to show his Resort ’14 collection to retailers. And not long after his arrival, he got a call. “They asked me if I could do something special,” Livné told—the “they” being Beyoncé’s stylists, and her mother, Tina. “I said yes, of course.” There was one problem, though—he had nowhere to work. But when you’re designing for pop culture’s reigning queen, nothing is impossible. Beyoncé’s camp set him up in an office with an industrial sewing machine, and he got to it. “I think the fact that they were willing to help me make these dresses, and to give me a studio, was so amazing,” offered Livné. “I mean, it’s Beyoncé. She can go anywhere from Chanel to Givenchy and pick whatever she likes, and she helped me.”

The fruit of his labor is a scarlet corset sprinkled with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals, the sketch of which debuts exclusively above. The look will serve as Ms. Knowles’ show-opener during the tour. Livné also made the star a printed gown with metal details, and a bevy of costumes for her backup dancers.
