Today’s “Inspired Wednesday” post is all about Beyonce!!!
I haven’t done a post like this ever before because I don’t love celebs. I know our generation has an obscene fascination with famous people whether famous for an actual talent or famous for basically doing absolutely nothing (I’m looking at you reality stars).
Yet, I do kind of love when a celeb I like or really like is a) fashionable & chic b) talented and c) seems like a decent to good person. For those reasons I love Beyonce!
I love Queen B for her fashion especially on red carpets, at the Met Gala and award shows. Point b, she is insanely talented…she has a wonderful voice, is naturally really pretty and has got moves for days dance wise! A complete entertainer with depth! But perhaps most importantly is point c, the fact that she seems like a pretty down to earth and nice person. In reality maybe she’s not and hey that’s ok.
I also like her because of her drive and crazy work ethic.
Anyways this isn’t a love letter to Beyonce from Dress Chic For Me 🙂 (or is it? haha) instead I want to highlight her fashion choices from this past Sunday’s VMAS (which I didn’t watch to be quite honest)! I watched a little highlight video of some of the performances but what I did watch in its entirety is all of Bey’s epic performance which is long but super entertaining!
I recommend watching it and if you haven’t watched it yet don’t worry here’s a link: http://jezebel.com/watch-beyonces-entire-flawless-vma-performance-1626427480
Basically she killed it! She slayed not only her performance but also on the red carpet.
So can we talk about her fashion choices?! Love all 3!
The first dress she wore on the red carpet was a sheer black gown by a designer named Nicolas Jebran, who I’ve never heard of but may need to know if he makes gorgeous gowns like this!
The second look of the night for B was an insane custom Tom Ford bodysuit encrusted in tons of crystal. Like tons!! Glitzy and glam to the max! It seriously looked so beautiful on her body and was a great choice because it sparkled and glimmered throughout her entire performance. She danced her derriere off in it!
She ended the night in her “Press Room Dress” which was phenomenal. Would you expect anything less?! No you shouldn’t. Zuhair Murad knows a thing or two about designing stunning gowns and this burgundy beauty with sheer sides & beading is super sexy yet tasteful! This gown definitely didn’t disappoint. I want to wear it right now!!
Basically I think Beyonce is wonderful not only because she is extremely fashionable, talented and beautiful but because she seems real. If this realness is an act then she’s nailed it!
She seems to be a woman who is strong, sensitive, humble, unapologetic for who she is (in a great way), independent, compassionate, is/does sexy in a classy way, likes to get super glammed up yet also likes to be casual and do minimal makeup when not directly in the spotlight, is flawed and yet “flawless” all at the same time! Props B!
