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?

Beyonce Knowles In Thakoon Addition R13 - Havana, Cuba

To celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z headed to Havana, Cuba to have a quiet celebration, but as one of the world’s hottest couples, they of course drew a lot of attention.

While attempting to do some sight-seeing, Beyonce wore a Thakoon Addition Resort 2013 ensemble.

No wonder they drew a large crowd: you couldn’t miss Bey in this zebra-print cape-back blouse and matching skirt, which she styled with Giraffe Walk lace-up oxfords.

Giving her hair a break, she opted for box braids, the perfect no-fuss hairstyle which is easy to maintain while on vacation.

Ruby lips, oversized earrings, and chic shades completed her look.

As for Jay-Z, the hip-hop mogul looked very cool wearing an aqua Billionaire Boys Club ‘The Jet’ polo shirt with checked shorts, styled with Persol 714 sunglasses and Nike Air Force 180 sneakers.

Vogue UK Beyonce Knowles May 2013

Beyonce Knowles covers the May 2013 issue of British Vogue following her March 2013 American Vogue cover.

Baring her midriff, the singer makes her long-overdue Vogue UK cover debut wearing a Jonathan Saunders striped crop top with a sequined pencil skirt. You may remember that she also donned a crop top for the February 2013 issue of GQ Magazine.

The in-demand cover star will soon embark on her Mrs Carter World Tour, and if you are anything like me you are bummed that you spent 2 hours of your life on two separate days trying and failing to secure tickets to what is most likely going to be an epic event.

In the mag, which hits newsstands on Monday, April 8, the singer talks about equal rights, marriage, motherhood, her music journey, her husband, and her demanding job, plus she defends using Mrs Carter for her world tour name.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On believing in equal rights for all: “But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman. I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept.”

On her demanding job: “I’m always bruised somewhere – my legs, my hips. But you’ve already started so you’ve just gotta fight through it.”

On defending using Mrs. Carter for her world tour name: “I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been. It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do’. The purpose of my body became completely different.”

Beyonce for H&M Summer 2013

Beyoncé Knowles has been unveiled as the star of H&M’s Summer 2013 campaign.

The entertainer, who kicks off her sold-out Mrs. Carter Show World Tour on April 15, will appear in television and print ads which were shot in Nassau in the Bahamas by photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, while the commercial was directed by Jonas Åkerlund, featuring pieces from the H&M summer collection.

The print and outdoor billboards introduce “Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M”, with the idea that all women can be all things: strong, vulnerable, sensual, maternal, fun, flirtatious.

The swimwear and beachwear pieces which feature in the collection will be available in H&M stores and online worldwide in May.

Beyoncé said, “I’ve always liked H&M’s focus on fun and affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements – fire, water, earth and wind. It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial.”

“H&M’s summer campaign starring Beyoncé is an epic fantasy, with glamour, drama and also a sense of paradise. It was amazing to watch her on the shoot make it all look effortless – a quality that makes her such an icon for women around the world. The campaign is the essence of Beyoncé, and also the essence of H&M this summer”, says Donald Schneider, H&M’s Creative Director.

Beyonce Knowles graces the bumper March 2013 issue of American Vogue wearing a Givenchy Spring 2013 black-and-white look.

The rest of Beyonce’s editorial, which was shot by Patrick Demarchelier, sees her wearing a stunning red organza Alexander McQueen strapless gown, a Marni top with Haider Ackermann pants, a red Oscar de la Renta ruffled gown, a three-piece Rochas floral look, a ruffled-collar Marc Jacobs top and many more.

Before she embarks on a new world tour, The Mrs Carter Show, she talked to Vogue about life as a mum, her new album and how her HBO documentary helped her feel ‘free’.

In addition to her upcoming HBO documentary, ‘Life is But a Dream’, which airs on HBO on Saturday, the singer is set to reveal even more about her personal life when she sits down for the Sunday, February 16 episode of ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ on OWN.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On becoming a mom: “I felt very maternal around eight months. And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. . . But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain. . . We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication. . . My family and my closest people were there when I gave birth. Everything that scared me just was not present in that room. So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction . . . it was the best day of my life.”

On having more kids: “When I was younger, there were moments where I said, ‘I’m not going to have children.’ And then moments when I wanted four. And now I definitely want another, but I don’t know when.”

On giving Blue a normal childhood: “At some point it’s very important to me that my daughter is able to experience life and run through the sprinklers and have slumber parties and trust and live and do all the things that any child should be able to do. . . School visits and lemonade stands and all that stuff. It’s very important for me.”

On her new family life: “I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more. Family has always been important. I’ve always had my mother and my father and my husband. But it’s just… Life is so much more than… It’s not defined by any of this.”

On splitting with her father as her business manager: “My soul has been tarnished… My father taught me so much about being a businesswoman. And I’m understanding him a lot now… A lot of the crazy things he did were necessary.”

Gwyneth Paltrow on her gal pal: “When she is working onstage, she has more power than any woman I’ve ever seen. She would never say it and has never said it, but I feel she knows with every fiber of her being that she is the best in the world at her job.”
