BEYONCE SPECIAL

What we can all learn from Beyonce, she's all over the shop when it comes to fashion, sometimes she's got it, other times she's a miss. At least she's versatile and she seems to know what she likes. I'm not really a huge fan, but she makes some interesting fashion choices.


Something about that black dress just seems too much, but she does look sexy in it which is why I didn't completely nix it. I love this peach color on her, it's absolutely stunning, she should wear it more often.


There's something about that first outfit that's just off, but I can't put my finger on it, I wish she would have paired it with some bright shoes. I love her with bangs, she looks like barbie and that print makes her look young and fresh.


I don't like that first dress, it looks junior high formal or something. Love the second outfit casual, but still blinged out, suits her style. You Canadians know you can pull off this whole style by just going to Sirens.


Omigod I hate that jacket.


I'm surprised Beyonce was able to pull off the high waisted look in the second picture, a tough one, but she makes it work.


I love love love the color of that dress in the second picture, I wish she would lose the earrings though it's too over the top.


I love the first dress, but I don't think her hair goes very well with it, she should have worn it up. She does look good in the Grammy outfit, grey looks stunning on her.


YUK. Polka dots are dead, she looks trashy in that picture even though she's trying not to be. I actually like the dress she wore to the Golden Globes, it's the pose that ruins it.

The first outfit is perfect, I wish I had a leather jacket right now. I've been keeping my eye out for a cheap one, but no luck yet. And she looks stunning in that yellow dress, yellow is definitely her color.

She looks trashy in the second picture, like she should be working the pole or something.


Yellow leather jacket and white pants? Only Beyonce. I wish she would dress more like in the second picture, sophisticated and pulled together and it seems to match her seemingly quiet personality.

She looks like a 40s starlet in the first picture, and I'm totally digging it, however the second outfit does not seem to suit her style.

The first dress shows just the right amount of skin, the second dress is wayyy too skanky.


I love the simple black dress, but her bag looks cheap, I'm just not liking it. You can get inexpensive bags that look better then that. Now in the second picture though is one of my favorite outfits from Beyonce, and it's not even an outfit it's a cover up.

She loses points for the first outfit because of that shit bag, however I love the second one, I wish she would dress more polished. I think she feels the need to keep up with the ghetto fabulous Hiphop world because of Jay Z, instead of just being her quiet self.


Love the first dress, I'd love the second one too if it wasn't for the sleeves, they are just too puffy.


The fashion Gods sure did shine on her the day she wore that bright dress. Absolutely breath taking, I wish it was mine. The hoodie she's wearing in the second outfit is just too small it ruins it.


Yay, I love the first picture, polished and sophisticated Beyonce, as for the second one it looks like she shopped for her clothes at Kmart or Wal-Mart, not that I'm knocking those places down, but I think you can even get better value there then what she's wearing.

Mahalo fashion,

I am not a huge fan of Beyonce's style (but i do like her music).
Although- she does look great when she really dresses up. Very glam.
(:

Carolina Lange said...

I agree with emily, she really looks great when she dresses up!
Great pics.

Diana Coronado said...

Sometimes she looks like a mermaid.
Soooo glam!!

Kira Fashion said...

chandra said...

beyonce is beautiful and she has an interesting style, but i really can't stand her and i don't know why!

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

i actually do like the sparkly black dress... im pretty sure its roberto cavalli... and it looks even better behind cos the entire back is open and the cut is amazing... the peach one looks stunning,... she loooks chunky in the black leather jacket and off... i like the print dress but wouldn't have put it together the way she did... that print plus a leopard print bag and gold shoes.. i dont get it?... they're all great individual pieces but not so great together i think. i dont like the formal dress either... the bet casual look is nice(lol i just love it when you make those canadian references... part of the reason i love your blog so much.. hehe... cos CANADIANS ROCK!!!)k i dont wanna do like an individual analysis of each outfit but i will say this.. beyonce is a gorgeous woman, one of the best entertainers of her time but i think she needs a new stylist.. she gets it sometimes... but for someone with so much beauty, class and money at her disposal she can do so much better. she can look no further than j.lo for inspiration.. now thats a woman who knows and understands her fashion... even bloody rihanna is beginning to look more put together than beyonce...

great writeup jen

I'm not sure how I feel about Beyonce, I usually flip the page if I see her but you just got me to look at your whole post. I do think she looks best, happiest, and younger in the bright colors like the blue and yellow.

Shewriteswithphotography said...

I totally agree with this blog!

dianabobar said...

i need a cheap leather jacket too:)

atlanta social said...

She is so ove the top. I don't care for her.

it truly is a love hate thing with miss bee, but it's mostly all about the love. who can fall face foward down a flight of stairs in a ten pound long jacket and 6 inch heels while on stage.... and jump up and keep going?
gotta respect her hustle

miss vintage love said...

Oh yes, all hail "Sirens"!
You can pretty much throw it away after one use, its so cheap - so great!
My guilty pleasure.

penelope said...

totally agree with yr choices!! as for the high wasties.. she's curvy so i think it's fab!!! (looks great on her!!)

Jennifer said...

Emily ♥ - agree, she dress the best when she is glammed up!

Overwhelmed Naija Babe - Thank you for your comment, she is gorgeous but she needs a stylist so bad!! (well somebody besides her mother)

CountryGirl_CityLife - Bright colors are her friend, thank you for looking at the post, don't worry i'm not a huge B fan, but i thought we could learn (good or bad) from her choices.

.m. - yeah I don't know how she did that but then she had to ruin it like saying something stupid "please don't put it on youtube"

Kat said...

I love the oufit where you say she looks like Barbie, indeed she does. She looks radient in that picture, young and fresh. I also love the oufit where she is wearing the leather jacket and the beanie. She should dress more casual as often it is a little too 'blingy' and a bit trashy. The best red carpet look is the Grammy dress - the grey is stunning on her.
Loved this post. I'm linking you, link me ?

Shaz said...

i really love Beyonce's style when she's not trying too hard or is overly cluttered. I like her casual outfits because their polished like you said and just look stylish in an effortless way.

glamour girly said...

I love that grey Grammy's dress, as well as the bright number and Beyonce with bangs. Great selection of pics!

hugs,
gg

coco said...

im am the anti beyonce, i really dont like her
but i agree with you, she can get it right and wrong a lot
i think it shows that dressing for a curvier figure is a fine art!

penelope said...

thanks for d comment(:

u might be one of the biggest haters known to man. 8 out of 10 times she looks great. U simply have a plaine jane type of style. Don't hate on my girl for taking risk. I don't love everything she wears but she tries to switch it up sometimes. u should respect her experimentation. and quit hating. Thanx loyal Bey Fan

Gloria said...

beyonce's sure got a beautiful curvy, bodacious body. But I don't quite admire her fashion sense...esp when it comes to fur!

Aisha said...

Loving the post.

I agree with you in most of the cases an you're right when you say she ruins the beautiful metallic dress she wore to the golden globes with that "wannabe sexy" pose. She's pretty, she doesn't seem to need to pose like that and totally agree with you about the last picture, when she's wearing that ugly ugly pants. ew.

Dani said...

I guess we all have the right to get it wrong sometimes...
She is beautiful, and I love her style (when she gets it right!).
her acting in Dream Girls is amazing and she looks stunning. I recommend the movie.

pinup_girl said...

I honestly don't like Beyonce very much, so it's hard for me to critique her outfits fairly. But you did a good job :]

fashionista said...

its so hit and miss with her- she either looks horribly trashy or amazingly glamorous.

Jo said...

im not a fan, but...like everyone she has her ups and downs!

Secret Agent said...

Hey, some of those straight-liners look pretty darn hot and sexy. Beyonce and her infamous pit smelling poses. Hot.

Wow, her style is all over the place. I am LOVING that leather jacket too. I want one so bad. If you find a cheap one, PLEASE tell me where you got it!!
Most of those dresses are super tacky.

Naki said...

Hey girlie! How's it's hanging? Stong work...I'm a Beyonce fanatic, so she can do no wrong in my book...what do you think of the balenciaga tights (space ensemble) that she rocked at the BET awards?
Link is below. Ciao!

sara said...

I'm not a big fan of Beyonce's clothes, though she does wear some great stuff on the red carpet.

cotton candy said...

i love beyonce!! but come to think of it, i never really actually analysed what she wore. lol. but i always do seem to think that she's gorgeous...especially in that pink and red polk-a-dot dress. it's such a nice outfit.

but then again there are times when i just cringe at what she's wearing...

WendyB said...

Beautiful woman, but I like it when she tones it down a bit. She can look like a pageant contestant at times.

Jennifer said...

^seriously, over the top!
