♪ Beyonce - Superpower ♪
4th of September = Beyonce's Birthday! I first heard one of Beyonce's songs when I was eight - 'Crazy in love' - I barely knew any English back then, but the chorus was so fun and simple! (I will admit that the version for the 'Fifty Shades' trailer is simply the best). As I grew up, I would see so many of her clips on MTV- "Upgrade U" was an all time favourite and it struck me that her music and fashion style evolved at the same pace. Ask me about a Beyonce song or a performance and I'll tell you what age I was and what I thought about her outfit.
She has the most angelic voice and she is such a perfectionist when it comes to performances. Just when you thought she had the most creative show yet, you get a surprise once again. Let's recap 2014 for example-"Drunk in love" performance with Jay Z-watched it countless times, performance in London- green sequined dress by Tom Ford, remember?, 'On the run' tour with her husband, the iconic VMA show. I was so happy to receive 'The Visual Album' by Beyonce for my birthday, the songs follow in a such a harmonious order and the videos are flawless!
I also notice a constant evolution on the fashion front. To be honest, I started regarding her as a fashion icon in 2011, I just felt like something changed in her style. 2014 has been her best fashion year yet, in my opinion! She often shares her daily looks on Instagram, which I love, her Versace bodysuits which you can see on tour are to die for and she wore perfect dresses to all the Awards ceremonies she attended!
I made a set (see above) with items from the fall collections which are Bey-worthy. First off, we have a gorgeous Stella McCartney bodysuit and some cool Stella McCartney earrings. Stella is one of my favourites this autumn, she just took everything to a different level (I will write a post about this soon). Next, we have the famous Stella McCartney Elyse Shoes (those nude stars are so cute!!), a Stella McCartney backpack, a Kate Spade dotted mug, a Kate Spade passport case because she is always 'on the run', Kiehl's creme de corps, and a rad shade of NARS lipstick. The colorful watch is also Kate Spade and it goes perfectly with that lavander Stella McCartney clutch. This J Crew printed skirt is so Bey and I matched it with an American Apparel crop top, because you know how much she loves those! Now, I put together a gym look as well, we can all see she's in an incredible shape! The T-shirt is Mango and the pants are Adidas by Stella McCartney (and so is the yoga mat). I also loved the Swarovski 'Love' necklace and the orange J Crew pumps. The Iphone case is by Kate Spade and the sunnies (I think we're going to see her wearing a pair of these pretty soon, it's her favourite model) are Stella McCartney.
The most adorable couple!
