Dolce & Gabbana thrilled to dress Beyonce

Klaudia//September 3, 2011
Dolce & Gabbana were "proud" to dress Beyoncé Knowles for her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). The Italian design duo dressed the pregnant star in a purple sequinned jacket with black high-waisted trousers and a low-cut white shirt for the awards show. While wearing the demure garb, Beyoncé opened the jacket and rubbed her baby bump live on stage in Los Angeles on Sunday. The 29-year-old singer earlier graced the red carpet in a flowing gown and cradled her growing tummy as she announced the news to reporters. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were thrilled to be involved in the announcement of the star's happy news. "We are very happy for her maternity, and we are proud she announced it while wearing Dolce & Gabbana!" Dolce told New York Fashion magazine. "She is versatile, determined, and never afraid of changes." Gabbana added that the duo often listen to Beyoncé tracks while they work. The fashionista also insisted the stunning singer will maintain her glamorous aesthetic throughout her pregnancy. "She will be a fantastic mother and we are sure that during her pregnancy she will not lose a bit of her glamour and sensuality," he said.

Gareth Pugh Talks Beyoncé

Klaudia//July 22, 2011
Gareth Pugh has been designing his eponymous avant garde label since 2005, but he's hardly a household name. The London-based 29-year-old is known for his dark, edgy designs and exaggerated silhouettes in a variety of wild materials (read: PVC), and his creations often blur the lines between art and fashion. He even has opted to show cutting-edge fashion films in lieu of runway presentations during Fashion Week in Paris. Lately, however, some of the biggest stars in the world have been incorporating Pugh's designs into their wardrobes -- namely Beyoncé and Lady Gaga -- which has brought his work to the attention of a whole new audience. He's currently collaborating with MAC cosmetics for a line that debuts in November, so he's about to become even more high-profile. I chatted with Pugh at the launch of his MAC collection last night, and he shared his thoughts on dressing Beyoncé, commercial success and the one person on the planet he'd most like to dress.

Recently so many huge stars have been wearing your looks. What has that done for your business, and have you been getting a lot more attention because of it?

It brings what I do to a new audience. When we first worked with Beyoncé, it was fun to witness a new reaction among a new crowd. Beyoncé has a very different crowd than what would normally follow me. When I choose to work with these people, it's not a business decision, it's more about if I like what they do. Beyoncé is an amazing performer, she's great live, is a really great person, and she's at the top of her game – so it's great for me to do these things with her. However, I don't do it so that I can sell more dresses. The thing with working with big names like that is it's good, but it can also have a very adverse effect. Like when Olivier Theyskens started working with Madonna, everybody saw it so much that when it was available in shops nobody wanted to buy it. It can be a good thing – and I do it very tongue-in-cheek – but I don't think it's inwards to really be commercially successful, I just kind of see it as a fun aside to what I do. It's great and I love doing it, but it's not because of any commercial motivation.

For Her New Look, Beyoncé Goes Under the Radar

Klaudia//July 18, 2011
Beyoncé Knowles’s latest chart-topping album hit stores less than a month ago. But it is not the singer’s music that has the fashion world buzzing. The fourth album by the artist, titled “4,” features a fold-out cover that looks more like a glossy fashion magazine spread than a record sleeve. As with other leading pop music divas like Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry, fashion has always played a big role in Ms. Knowles’s artistic persona. In her music videos, she uses outfits to take on different roles — from sexy diva in sky-high heels and a leotard in “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” to joyous bride in a wedding dress for her latest video “Best Thing I Never Had” — while onstage, revealing ensembles spice up her live performances. The difference, this time, is in her choice of designers. Instead of sticking to major fashion houses like Versace, Gucci, Prada or Chanel, the singer has thrown the spotlight on a number of up-and-coming designers whose names are likely to be unfamiliar to all but the most diehard fashion followers. Ms. Knowles’s creative director, Jenke-Ahmed Tailly, along with the singer’s stylist Ty Hunter, pointed her in the direction of these designers. “The album is a musical gumbo of everything Beyoncé likes,” said Mr. Tailly in an interview by telephone. “Each song really has a different personality so we decided to do the cover like an editorial for a magazine, with each song having its own style.”

Beyoncé Talks At-Home Beauty Treatments & Makeup Tricks

Klaudia//March 29, 2011
When I recently spoke with Beyoncé, she mentioned that her latest fragrance, Heat Rush, is meant to "remind you of sunshine". I asked B to shed some sunlight on her favorite beauty products, what it's like to give people a fragrance bottle with your name on it, and that rite of passage every young woman goes through: stealing her mother's perfume.

How often do you wear fragrance? "Every day. I put it on as soon as I get out of the shower. I wear it onstage, in the studio, on dates."

How many fragrances do you own? "I'm very loyal. I find one and wear it for years. I wear Heat and Heat Rush—I really do! It was important to me that they work for all occasions because I don't like to switch up. I like to have a signature scent so that when I walk past, everyone knows it's me. My mother always wore the same fragrance and every time I smell it, I think of her."

What perfume is that? "She wore 273. I remember it was the first thing that I wore because I used to steal it from her!"

I used to steal my mom's Liz Claiborne! Do you have any particular scent memories attached to 273? "Yes. I kind of put that fragrance together with stilettos—because I would smell it and hear her footsteps on the hardwood floor."

When you have your own perfumes, does everyone you know get them as gifts? Who have you given Heat Rush to? "All of my family. It's funny because I don't like to give my own CD to all of my friends—it feels a little strange. But I gave Heat and Heat Rush to all of my nieces and my extended family. A lot of them were like, 'You better give us those fragrances! Because we don't want to have to buy them!'"

Beyoncé Knowles sheds stress by swimming

Klaudia//March 6, 2011
Beyoncé Knowles has revealed that swimming in the ocean is her favourite way to relax. The notoriously hard-working singer is famed for her perfectly groomed look. Away from red-carpet events and performing live, the singing sensation says she loves nothing more than to unwind by going on vacation and taking advantage of the open water. The 29-year-old says this relaxation method keeps her feeling and looking good. “My favourite way to relax is to go on vacation and swim in the ocean. My skin looks healthier when I have had a break from work,” she told the British edition of Glamour magazine. The American R&B star is famed for her gorgeous curves, which are the envy of women across the globe. She puts her toned physique down to rigorous gym training and high-intensity dancing routines whilst on tour. “When I am on tour, I dance for two hours a night, and when I’m not on the road, I work out a few times a week which keeps my skin glowing. I run about two miles on the treadmill and I have a great trainer.”

Teen Vogue interview

Klaudia//March 4, 2011
There are few women who embody celebrity as perfectly as Beyoncé Knowles. She had hearts all around the world "Jumpin' Jumpin'" as the leading lady of Destiny's Child, and then we fell "Crazy in Love" when she embarked on her solo career, only to watch her finally claim her rightful position as a full-fledged "Diva" shortly thereafter. With 16 Grammy Awards, an Academy Award-winning film, a fashion line (not to mention the highest honor of all - a Teen Vogue cover!) on her stellar résumé, one might say that Miss Knowles has done it all. Who could blame her if she decided to take an extended break from work? But let's be serious. This is Beyoncé we're talking about. The songstress delighted beauty editors and fans alike early last year with the launch of her first fragrance, Heat: a warm, fruity concoction with subtle hints of spice. And now, she's gearing up for the highly-anticipated release of Heat Rush, a fresher, lighter take on the original scent. We got the chance to ask B a couple of questions about her newest fragrance, career moves, body image, and the lovely Tom Ford. Check out what she had to say!

You were selected as the celebrity with the Best Body Image by Teen Vogue readers in 2010. Do you have any words of wisdom for girls who are struggling with their image?

That was very nice and I am flattered. Thank you Teen Vogue readers. The best thing I can say to young ladies is accept the body you're in. If you have curves, love your curves. The thing to strive for is to have the best healthy body you can have. It's really not about being skinny or being curvy. What matters is that you love yourself and you are taking care of your health.

Beyonce's Mom Says Daughter's Style Has Always Been 'Edgy'

Klaudia//November 30, 2010
Beyoncé has never been shy about hitting the stage in stunning costumes. Her appearance has always been a mixture of showgirl sparkle and pop star razzle-dazzle. And her style is on full display in her new DVD concert special, "I Am ... World Tour." Her mom and stylist, Tina Knowles, said that while the looks may seem a bit edgier than what fans have seen from the singer in the past, she thinks that her superstar daughter has always been ahead of the style curve. "Well, the wonderful Thierry Mugler designed the costumes, and I actually worked on some of the dancers and the band, and it was just amazing to work with him because he is so creative," Knowles told MTV News at a New York screening of the special. "So it's just a result of her constantly evolving, but she's been edgy. It's funny for people to say she went more edgy, but she's been wearing body suits and that type of thing." And while Knowles may act as her daughter's stylist and costume designer, she says that Bey's style decisions are all her own. "Well, we discussed her working with Thierry Mugler, and I'm the biggest fan. And so she had seen some of the fashions and she loved it," she said. "So we always discuss things, but it's her decision, it's her career." Beyoncé, who also directed the concert special , said it gave her a better understanding of the filmmaking process. "It was hard work," she said. "I learned so much. I have a new respect for directors and I think I would like to do more of it. ... Well, I've done some co-directing for music videos this was definitely a big step for me, and I'm so thrilled."

Scoops from the Milan Shows

Klaudia//October 5, 2010
As celebrity fans become more and more de rigeur, Italian designers are catering to the likes of Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue. Beyoncé, in particular, seemed to be making the rounds among Italian footwear designers during the Milan collections, picking out styles for her new album cover and tour. At Casadei, she chose a multicolored Swarovski ankle-strap sandal from the Atelier Collection, which designer Cesare Casadei said referenced 1980s opulence. He stressed that made-in-Italy craftsmanship is especially evident in the style, as it takes one person several days to mount and sew the 800 large Swarovski Elements crystals onto the straps. At Giuseppe Zanotti, Beyoncé was also one of the first to see the new handbag collection, which includes a structured envelope clutch called the Brighton that will be exclusive to the designer’s boutiques, among them the new Beverly Hills, Calif., location bowing in November to cater to his growing celebrity clientele. Beyoncé’s choice was the mosaic mirrored Brighton, along with several styles from the spring footwear collection, which Zanotti described as “much lighter with fewer platforms, and more about allure than over-the-top sexiness.”
