Yes, we know the big news from tonight's MTV's Video Music Awards is that Beyonce is preggers. Congrats to her and Mr. Jay-Z. I, however, am just glad she's pregnant in style. And yes, that means not wearing a maternity dress from that dreadful House of Dereon. Kudos to Bey Bey for choosing this beautiful, flowing fire engine red/orange one-shoulder gown by Lanvin. Loved it!
P.S. Bey's performance outfits were cute, too. Women in glittering Temptation/New Edition outfits. We likey.
P.P.S. - Somebody tell me why Jay Z was dressed in a fitted white T-shirt in jeans? This from the man who said it's time for men to dress up and killed the jersey trend? I hope he's no regressing. Fellas, please don't follow this latest underwear as outerwear advice.
Hmmm.... How do I say this?
The Queen Collection is nice. As a matter of fact, it's quite wearable. There are trendy jumpsuits, capes, sleek, black wrap dresses in jersey knits, sparkly T-shirts in easy to match nudes. The collection comes in sizes 2 to 24. I'd wear all of them.
