Sidewalk Style – Beyonce Knowles In Dries Van Noten

Jay Z and Beyonce Knowles have moved on from Portoferraio in Italy to St. Tropez in France.

The power couple were joined by family and friends as they left their yacht headed to Club 55.

We all know mixing prints is on trend, but Beyonce has taken it to the next level to create her latest vacation look.

I see leopard print, ikat print and African print.

I’m wincing at the way Beyonce has tied a knot in her £795/$1,225 Dries Van Noten embellished ikat shirt like it’s an inexpensive shirt.

Isn’t she worried some of the embellishments are going to fall off?

This is quite an interesting look, but I’m only loving it from the waist up.

I’m not crazy about those Boxing Kitten’s Kitt shorts and the same goes for the bag.

But I am loving the gangster rapper-esqe ghetto gold.

This Dries Van Noten shirt is available exclusively at Browns Fashion.

    I’m wincing too. I love the look but the most immediate thing about it was how extremely tight the shorts were. I really really hope we get to see more dries soo, hopefully untied.

    I like it.

    *ducks*

      I like it too! I think it works because the colors of the patterns are complementary colors and everything is fitted. If the shirt was worn untied it would’ve been more of a cover up. Yikes $1225, extremely ballin She even threw a pattern on her man! LOL

      • justme August 25, 2010 at 20:22 #

        I like it too. But since she’s mixing 3 (4 with bag) different patterns, the heavy necklaces need to go imo.

    It would be cute IF the bottom was the right size. Camel toes are so not très chic… unless that’s the look she’s going for.

    I think she’s wearing Boxing Kitten shorts. Cute.

    • Fashion Critic August 25, 2010 at 20:03 #

      I was thinking that too, but couldn’t find a picture on their site to confirm.

  5. LeeAnn August 25, 2010 at 20:04 #

    hope she doesn’t fall in or she will sink for all the bling

  6. Z FASHION BLOG August 25, 2010 at 20:13 #

    These shorts ar ugly!
    She should have chosen something more simple with that colourful shirt.

  7. Juliana August 25, 2010 at 20:18 #

    What the hell, Beyoncé? Why wear shorts that make you look 10 kg bigger? And what about the Mr. T. necklace? The “25 de março” bag? Am I going crazy? I can’t be the only one to think that the shirt in fact is really ugly…

    • Nitasha August 26, 2010 at 14:00 #

      You’re not alone and i agree with you a 100%. That Ikat print shirt can be found in every nook and cranny of India for 1/100th the price, and even then i wouldn’t buy it.

    • Carolina August 27, 2010 at 03:35 #

      She’s going to the next level… of bad taste.

  8. Charlotte August 25, 2010 at 20:40 #

    I really like this look! It’s sort of like the hip hop version of an outfit we have seen Blair wearing on the set of Gossip Girl..
    http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/2010/07/15/on-the-gossip-girl-set-with-leighton-meester-in-gucci/

    So i think it is pretty cool and much more fashionable that a lot of other beach outfits you see in summer ;)

    • Fashion Critic August 25, 2010 at 20:41 #

      :D

      I agree

  9. Ev August 25, 2010 at 20:46 #

    I like this look (except for the bag – OTT), but I think it is a little bit too much for the beach/yacht walk, even for Beyonce.

  10. Rama Dimas August 25, 2010 at 21:08 #

    I love this look. I mean it’s fun and we can see that she’s having fun on the beach.
    And I think this ikat print is inspired by Indonesian Ikat Print, so I feel so proud :P

  11. Moxie August 25, 2010 at 21:09 #

    Was she drunk?

  12. xoliquoricexo August 25, 2010 at 21:24 #

    She’s wearing Boxing Kitten’s Kitt shorts from their debut collection – http://boxingkitten.com/collections/spring-2009-collection

    The Kitt shorts are available in their Big Cartel store also – http://boxingkitten.bigcartel.com/products

    • Fashion Critic August 25, 2010 at 21:42 #

      Thanks for the confirmation

    • mm August 26, 2010 at 03:49 #

      The collection is really cute. I see from other boards that the designer Maya Amina Lake, is good friends with Solange. Oh Boxing Kitten is also featured in the “Put It In a Love Song” video.

  13. Tania August 25, 2010 at 21:39 #

    It is an inexpensive shirt to her she’s a millionaire and if the embelliments fall off she just buy another one.
    I love it from the waist upwards also, the bag goes with the leopard top she has under the shirt. I like that she tied the shirt.

    • Fashion Critic August 25, 2010 at 21:41 #

      true ;)

  14. renrenren August 25, 2010 at 21:50 #

    I love how she wears that shirt, which is beautiful btw. The shorts are not so good.

  15. Hisadora August 25, 2010 at 22:24 #

    Sorry but I hate it. The only thing I like here is that amazing shirt. she looks hideous!!!!!!!

  16. Marvel August 25, 2010 at 23:05 #

    Buying that shirt was probably just loose change to her. I do like the look but those shorts are so unforgiving

  17. LG August 25, 2010 at 23:15 #

    HORRIBLE ! TOO MUCH OF EVERYTHING , SHE NEVER GETS IT RIGHT , TACKY TASTE IN CLOTHES SHE HAS JUST LIKE HER DEREON LINE

    • María Álvarez André August 26, 2010 at 15:21 #

      I agree! I don’t understand why is she wearing all those things!
      When you go to de beach or boat you wear the less things possible!
      too much bling bling!!!!

  18. Natalie August 25, 2010 at 23:20 #

    I agree, I love everything from the waist up. Those shorts are TOO tight! It looks like shes wearing a diaper underneath.. lol

  19. faina August 25, 2010 at 23:37 #

    The least attractive shirt in the world.

  20. KateS August 26, 2010 at 02:19 #

    I actually kind of like it as extremely upmarket ghetto-fashion. And Jay looks great. love the contrast of his plain shirt against all their other patterns and blingy-ness.

  21. Jorge August 26, 2010 at 02:34 #

    I like it!!
    I love her sun glasses

  22. mochababe73 August 26, 2010 at 03:56 #

    I don’t like anything about the look except for the bag.
    For where she is, this entire look is over the top and tacky.
    Even if she were at a club, the look would still be tacky.
    However, I love each individual piece.

  23. Amber August 26, 2010 at 04:45 #

    I wonder if she can breathe her shorts are so tight! And the whole outfit is ugly, kind of like she closed her eyes and picked random things from her closet and jewelry box.

  24. Zett August 26, 2010 at 05:07 #

    I actually love this whole crazy loud multi-print look, despite the fact that those shorts are a yeast infection waiting to happen. Let the kitty breathe, Bey.

    • mochababe73 August 27, 2010 at 00:08 #

      You literally made me LOL!

  25. kiwi August 26, 2010 at 08:13 #

    ughh.. very nouveau Riche look.. teh shorts are ghastly.. I mean who wars so much on the beach???? Much prefer her hubby’s outfit.. at least its suited for the beach

  26. Peter August 26, 2010 at 09:24 #

    It’s very interesting. And whats the point of owning a luxurious shirt if you aren’t going to wear it? The point of luxury is comfort, you shouldn’t have to worry about things falling apart when you wear it.

  27. Sophia August 26, 2010 at 10:10 #

    Wow, love the shirt, she looks stunning with it. ^_^
    But I agree about the shorts. They aren’t really my style but hey, this is Beyoncé, she’s a risk taker, haha. ^_^

  28. janelle August 26, 2010 at 13:57 #

    I love, love, love it. DRIES makes me wanna pass out from joy and to see it worn this way by BEYONCE?? I am kind of hyperventilating.

  29. susan August 26, 2010 at 14:16 #

    I don’t understand why she refuses to dress for her shape. She is so stunning. But this just shows you that not everyone can get by with every type of look.

    At least we don’t have to suffer through seeing her in yet another mermaid style gown.

  30. Anna August 26, 2010 at 14:56 #

    O-O
    I can’t believe what I see: “quelle classe”…

  31. Lisa August 27, 2010 at 10:23 #

    Two words. Camel. Toe.

  32. Ayesha August 27, 2010 at 11:14 #

    hate the shorts……….the jewelery is good though…

  33. Lana August 29, 2010 at 01:23 #

    i think she totally rocks this look! xoxo

    Isn’t it funny. When SJP or Blake Lively wears chunky accessories it’s called statement jewelry but when beyonce wears it it’s called ghetto gold. Very interesting.
