Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Media Room At "Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live" Concert

Salma Hayek, Frida Giannini and Beyonce Knowles, the founding committee for Chime For Change, a global campaign for girls’ and women’s empowerment, attended a photocall earlier today ahead of the ‘Chime For Change: The Sound of Change Live’ Concert at Twickenham Stadium in London.

Salma Hayek: The actress wore a petrol-blue leather Gucci V-neck belted dress with black studded Gucci platform sandals that added an edge to her sexy look.

Frida Giannini: Gucci’s creative director added some sparkle to the proceedings wearing an all-black Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 shimmering relax-fit suit.

Beyonce Knowles: The singer, who is headlining the event, was also in head-to-toe Gucci wearing a long sleeve gold-and-silver sequin dress paired with silver peep-toe ankle boots. I have never been a fan of Beyonce with this platinum shade of blonde, and the lip colour is way too dark for my liking.

After last year’s show-stopping Givenchy confection, Beyonce just had to bring another knockout to the 2013 Met Gala red carpet, especially since she is the honorary chair.

And that she did, wearing Givenchy for the second time around in designer and gala co-chair Riccardo Tisci’s stunner.

The strapless black gown was built on a black croc-paneled corset bodice which gave way to a cascading, slit-to-there black skirt that was rimmed in digitally printed gold and bronze damask.

The long, sweeping train that trailed behind the songstress was the most eye-catching; it nearly appeared as if she was emerging from an engulfment of fashionable flames.

Of course, the long gloves and the knee-high boots, which were matched to the brilliant, fiery print of the gown, commanded plenty of attention, too.

Every time I looked at this ensemble, I noticed another detail not seen before—like the ever-so-punk-like grommet belt.

But, despite the boldness and the brashness, Beyonce looked utterly beautiful with her flowing, wavy locks and effortless makeup. No need to overdo things—she knows when enough is enough.

Gorgeous or garish?

Beyonce Knowles In Kenzo

To ensure she is looking nothing but perfect in every frame, Beyonce Knowles has banned unapproved photographers from her Mrs Carter world tour.

We’ve seen a few pictures of her wearing Ralph & Russo on this tour, along with Emilio Pucci and Dsquared; here we see her wearing a very familiar turquoise-clouded leopard print from Kenzo’s Spring 2013 collection, which has also been donned by Jessica Alba and Brandy Norwood.

This look was captured from last night’s show in Paris, where she wore a custom bustier and shorts designed by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim with Stuart Weitzman booties and nude fishnet tights.

Beyonce Mrs Carter Tour

Beyonce Knowles kicked off her 42-city ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’ in Belgrade, Serbia last night, wearing a white crystal- and pearl-embellished bodysuit with a peplum skirt and fringed epaulettes, designed by Ralph & Russo.

They are not the only ones who will be dressing Beyoncé during this epic tour.

Peter Dundas, Creative Director at Emilio Pucci, has created four looks for Beyoncé, for which he drew inspiration from his Fall 2013 collection. The costumes will resonate with the singer’s modern take on glamour and complement the theatrical storytelling of the ‘Mrs. Carter Show’.

Dean and Dan Caten from DSquared2 will also be dressing Beyoncé for her tour, creating exclusive pieces inspired by their ‘Glamazons’ Spring 2013 collection.

As for the shoes, Beyonce’s stylist and mother, Tina Knowles, worked with Stuart Weitzman to create footwear to complement her costumes, ranging from stiletto pumps with Swarovski crystal detailing, to lace military-influenced ankle- and knee-high boots.

Beyonce’s world tour runs until August 5, when she will close at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn – aptly.

Beyonce Knowles in DVF Cuba

After a day of sightseeing in Havana, Cuba, Mr & Mrs Carter were spotted headed out to a romantic dinner at La Guarida with three bodyguards.

With her box braids still styled into a lavish updo, Beyonce Knowles wore yet another colourful printed look, which has me wondering if she raided Solange’s closet before this trip.

On this occasion, she wore a Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2012 ‘Margaux’ dress.

The brown-white-and-mustard tweed mini dress was styled with nude pumps with a gold cap.

I think I love Beyonce’s vacation style better than her street style. Do you agree?
