Met Gala 2014: Disney Villans vs Fairytale Princess

The Met Gala always brings out the best in fashion and the hottest stars, this year was no exception for the Charles James ‘White Tie & Diamonds’ themed bash, and it looks like some celebs took their inspiration from Disney’s up-coming flick, Maleficent.

Channelling Maleficent’s Gothic glamour was Beyonce who captivated the red carpet outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. Wearing a custom beaded Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown, Beyonce really stood out in this sexy look with its plunging neckline and very revealing back.

As ever Beyonce really excluded the attitude and confidence to pull this exquisite gown off, much like Angelina Jolie in the Maleficent movie, and her look really is pulled together with her statement Lorraine Schwartz jewels, black veil, and her bold burgundy lip.

Only Beyonce could take inspiration from a Disney villain and be one of the best dressed at the gala!!!

There were a number of contenders for Aurora’s fairytale chic crown, there was Blake Lively in a shimmering blush Gucci gown, Suki Waterhouse in a blush ruffle number by Burberry, but for me the fairest of them all had to be footwear designer Tabitha Simmons who looked at one with nature in this floral masterpiece by Dolce & Gabbana

This gown really feels like Aurora, it’s whimsical, ethereal, and gorgeous with all the floral appliqués adorning the bodice and skirt. Simply divine and perfect for a Princess.

Who wins Beyonce or Tabitha?

Shop Her Style: Beyonce In Topshop

I have blogged about my love/stalking of Beyonce on her Tumblr and Instagram before, I love her style snaps, the intimate family photos, and her love for travel. So when I saw her latest posts from her holiday I was mesmerised, not only does the paradise island look incredible, but she was showing off her smoking body in a Topshop bikini costing £38 – yep Queen Bey is rocking a look from the high street.

So if you are heading off for some winter sun get in quick and snap up this beauty of a bikini. Not only is it a great style, I do love the 50’s vibe with the high-waisted bikini bottoms, they are the most flattering of two-pieces, but I also adore the Aztec print.

It isn’t every day you can afford something that Beyonce has endorsed – now if only wearing the bikini would give me her amazing abs!!!

Would you rock this bikini?

If There Was a Beyoncé Barbie – She Would Totally Look Like This

Beyonce-cavalli

This year diva Jennifer Lopez is being honoured with not one but two Barbie dolls, which I can’t wait to see, and when I received this sketch of Beyoncé from Roberto Cavalli this morning, it got me thinking that this is totally what a Beyoncé Barbie doll would look like.

The Italian designer, who hasn’t put his name to a Barbie doll yet, which is a travesty in itself, created this gorgeous multicoloured print dress for Beyoncé’s Mrs Carter world tour and it really is a dress made for Barbie!!!

I think Beyoncé would make a beautiful and sexy Barbie doll and I would love to add her to my collection.

Barbie lovers would you like Mattel to put Beyoncé Barbie into production?

Video Loving: Beyonce Gets The Royal Treatment From O2

beyonce-o2-promo

So the first thing I did this morning was watch Beyonce’s amazing Super Bowl performance, which was incredible I loved the fact that she brought out Destiny’s Child, even if Michelle did look a little uncomfortable about doing the Single Ladies routine.

Then I heard the news that Queen Bee is coming to the UK on her ‘The Mrs. Carter World Tour’, which got even better when I realised that O2 Priority customers would get their hands on tickets 48-hours before anyone else.

But what I loved even more than the fact I basically get to queue jump is that O2 have transformed Beyoncé into a sexy Queen Elizabeth I regal-looking-monarch, complete with ruffled collar, a gold beaded corset, and a diamond-clad crown, oh and some red thigh-high boots.

This promo was shot by Jonas Akerlund, famous for filming lots of Lady Gaga music videos including Paparazzi and Telephone, which starred Queen Bee, and I seriously love the styling, the beauty of Beyoncé, the crazy jester on the decks, and the elegance of the music and movement of the dance moves.

Are you excited about Beyoncé’s tour? Well, Queen Bee starts in Birmingham in April before heading to London and then finishing in Manchester in May. Priority tickets for O2 customers go on sale 9.30am Thursday 21 February, 48 hours before general release – so don’t forget to put a reminder in your diary.
