On the Run II Tour in Glasgow (June 9)

June 11, 2018

Beyonce performed during the 'On the Run II' Tour with Jay-Z at Hampden Park on June 9, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland. The singer wore one new outfit by Peter Dundas. After the show, she thanked her fans on Instagram: "Thank you Glasgow for being an amazing audience!"




Beyonce's Hair Colorist Shares Inspiration Behind Her New Blonde Hue

June 11, 2018

She’s known as Queen Bey for a reason! Beyoncé and Jay-Z kicked off their On the Run II tour in Cardiff, Wales, on Wednesday, June 6, and while the show is epic for so many reasons (think: insane musical talent, jamming songs, gorgeous costumes), we couldn’t help but be mesmerized by Beyoncé’s #flawless cascade of curls. So you can imagine our delight from Bey’s longtime hair colorist Rita Hazan (the same woman who crafted the perfect shade of blonde for those history-making 2018 Coachella performances in April) agreed to spill all the details on the summery strands.

“I got a call that Beyoncé wanted her hair color to be super dramatic for this show which is why I jumped on the soonest flight to Paris to meet with her last weekend,” Rita tells Us. When it came to deciding on the perfect shade, the colorist, who first started working with Bey about seven years ago at the recommendation of the diva’s hairstylist Kim Kimble, explained that it was all about minding the details (i.e. lighting, wardrobe, makeup, etc.).

“She was requesting color that was impactful and that would translate well on stage with the bright lights and her fierce wardrobe,” Hazan says. “I ended up making the ends of her hair extremely golden blonde – not ashy – and her roots a few shades darker. It took a few hours to create but overall she is embracing a more natural look and texture.”

While the half-up style and tight ringlets are similar to the waist-grazing urban glam look she sported at Coachella, the On The Run II hue is noticeably warmer than the music festival’s ashier blonde. The new shade is the perfect complement to her sculpted golden goddess makeup look, complete with a neutral lip, shimmering eye and graphic winged liner.

Beyoncé's Wings Of Desire Unveiled At The V&A

May 11, 2018

"I do love butterflies", Grammy award-winning superstar Beyoncé tells me, "but the Papillon was something special". Today her dazzling Papillon will be unveiled as a permanent exhibit at the V&A Museum, donated it as a gift from her private collection, to the William & Judith Bollinger Gallery. The ring’s glittery green mosaic-style wings, created by London jeweller Glenn Spiro using 326 tsavorites, and not surprisingly, 342 brilliant-cut diamonds, "Yes, diamond’s are always a girl’s best friend," says Beyoncé, who spends time looking for distinctive jewels because, "they remind me of a special moment".

"She and Jay-Z buy beautiful things", explains Spiro, "Not just jewellery but also art; they are collectors." The three friends were hanging out together in Los Angeles, in a suite at the Peninsular Hotel, when the subject of the V&A seeking exciting examples of contemporary jewellery cropped up. "She immediately said she’d like to donate the jewel," he says.

When he was originally imagining the design in his West End atelier (once the showroom of couturier Norman Hartnell) he fashioned the stones flat. It wasn’t until he developed a titanium spring, wrapped like a diamond-set antennae over the knuckle, that the butterfly’s wings took flight and were able to flutter in time with Beyoncé’s finger.

"This titanium setting couldn’t have been done until recently and it’s so incredibly delicate," says Richard Edgcumbe, Senior Curator of the V&A Museum, as he turns the butterfly over in his gloved hands. "Of course it's close in spirit to the quivering en tremblant jewels of the 19th-Century which also needed human agency to make the diamonds quiver and come to life. Beyoncé is a role model in so many ways that having her personal jewel will be transforming to the gallery," Edgcumbe adjusts his tie, "to be honest we’re all quite star struck at the thought of it".

Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival - Weekend 2

April 22, 2018

Beyoncé returned to Coachella last night for the second weekend—and her second performance as headliner. The performance wasn't streamed this time, and despite an initial announcement, SiriusXM radio's live stream didn't include her set.

Visually the show was refreshed, with Beyoncé and her 100 dancers and band members washed in shades of magenta and virtually every ensemble the singer wore was swapped out for a new look.

The set-list, however, remained untouched and she was again joined by husband Jay-Z, former Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as well as her sister Solange Knowles. There was an extra surprise, as the singer was also joined by J. Balvin for a quick run of "Mi Gente."

Beyoncé's Coachella merchandise collection was expanded with two new items, which are now available on the Coachella Pop-Up Store website.




Olivier Rousteing on Dressing Beyoncé in Balmain for Coachella 2018

April 15, 2018

It all started when stylist Marni Senofonte approached Olivier Rousteing after his Fall 2018 runway show for Balmain and explained to him that she was trying to find the right designer to create custom looks for Beyoncé’s upcoming Coachella performances. “Marni told me that the shows were all about survivors and that B was looking for something in a military style,” Rousteing says. “Our silhouettes and our sort of Mad Max, futuristic take on military looks for Fall were a perfect fit.” But, of course, Queen Bey was not about to wear something that was going to be mass-produced, so Rousting went to work with Senofonte and the rest of Beyoncé’s team to create two custom Balmain stage wardrobes, one for each of her performances tonight and next Saturday night. Rousteing also dressed the 200-some dancers on stage, as well as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, who reunited with Beyoncé for a Destiny’s Child throwback moment. Rousteing only had a few weeks to pull it all together, spending sleepless nights and long days creating the Egyptian-inspired gold-and-black cape with intricate embellishments; as well as a hologram-fabric black jacket and bodysuit; a collegiate-style embellished yellow hoodie with “BAE” written on the front; a camouflage and mesh minidress; and a top decorated with a 2018 Beyoncé crest that shows a bee, a raised fist, a panther, and an Egyptian goddess. “By the end it felt like Marni and I were in a relationship,” the designer said with a laugh. “We went to bed texting and emailing one another and woke up doing the same.”

Beyoncé to Wear Francesco Scognamiglio in Milan

July 15, 2016

Francesco Scognamiglio has designed one of the outfits that Beyoncé will wear on Monday night in Milan on the stage of her “Formation” world tour.

The Neapolitan designer, who debuted his first haute couture collection in Paris earlier this month, realized a hooded bomber jacket entirely covered with Swarovski, as well as a pair of pants combining crystals with precious floral-inspired decorations.

“I wanted to interpret the energy, strength, femininity and talent of a real style icon through my personal point of view with the goal of creating an unforgettable look,” Scognamiglio said.

Since the early stages of his career, the designer has often worked with international celebrities, in particular Madonna, who wore a Scognamiglio outfit in her “Give It 2 Me” video, directed by Tom Munro in 2008.

To say that Ty Hunter is rad would be the understatement of the year. The Houston-bred stylist -- who lives in Harlem -- started working with Destiny's Child when, uh, there was still such a thing as Destiny's Child. And he's now responsible not only for the creative direction of Beyonce's video and performance ensembles (sparkly Saint Laurent tights, included), but her personal ones too (remember that white Michael Costello number she wore to the Grammys? You can thank Ty for that).

We caught up with Hunter in the front row of Naeem Khan's stunning, shine-heavy fall '14 show Tuesday (where he hung out with fellow music styling master June Ambrose as Padma Lakshmi, Teen Wolf star Holland Roden and Disney darling Debby Ryan kicked it nearby) to find out how the man responsible for dressing the woman whose outfit selfies reach 10,000,000 Instagram followers does fashion week.

Pret-a-Reporter: Will you be in L.A. for any Oscars festivities?

Ty Hunter: No, we're heading back on tour on 16th in the UK and we'll be gone for a month.

PaR: Does this mean that the world will have a whole new set of Beyonce costumes/outfits/everything to stalk, er, pay attention to every day?

TH: The new album is going to be affiliated with . And most of the designers we've already used on the tour are revamping their looks. So they'll be some new costumes for sure. It will be exciting!
Aside from Pharrell’s Vivienne Westwood hat, all eyes were on Beyonce at the 2014 Grammy Awards. From Her ultra sexy La Perla Spring 2013 performance number to her white sheer Michael Costello fishnet gown, Bey stole the show. That sexy wet performance will not soon be forgot. Those moves and looks were perfection.

But it’s no surprise that Queen Bey stunned at the show. She is one of the best-dressed ladies in music with famed stylist Ty Hunter behind her dazzling outfits. Fresh off styling Bey for the Grammys, Ty caught up with us to give his take on her Grammy look and reveal her favorite fashion item.

Billboard: What inspired the opening look? Was there a specific image or person you looked to?

Hunter: The style team—comprised of Raquel Smith and Timothy White (Karen Langley helped with the performance outfit)—wanted to emulate the video with a different spin. Kim Kimble did her hair, but it was all coming from the “Drunk In Love” video. Just trying to bring an even more sophisticated look to the stage.

We love the wet hair. Why did you choose this wet look?

The style team wanted to go for sexy and elegant. Read more...
There are certain indisputable truths in life, and the fact that Beyoncé can pull off just about any look is one of them. In the videos for her eponymous visual album, the star showcased a wide variety of hairstyles, ranging from her pixie that rocked the world to her trademark long waves — and just about everything in between. Eager to get the details on each look, we caught up with Bey’s hairstylist Neal Farinah, who created 15 out of the 17 dynamic looks for her videos, and has been working with Knowles for seven years. “We have had such iconic moments together,” he told InStyle.com exclusively. “I’ve worked on campaign and publication shoots with her, she was the first female artist to headline at Glastonbury, and I had the opportunity to do her hair for both presidential inaugurations. It was a historic moment — she sang for Barack Obama and the First Lady, and it was hard to explain how I felt at that moment, because while I was doing her hair, I feel like I was representing everyone, and I felt proud and very grateful.”

As if working on 15 of her new videos didn’t keep him busy enough, Farinah was simultaneously working with Beyoncé during her Mrs. Carter World Tour. Filming often took place on the same day as a show, and the multiple hair changes — her pixie and long bob included — always kept fans guessing what she’d try next. “People were seeing her with long hair one day, short hair one day, and they didn’t know what was happening. We’d work on the videos while on tour, so sometimes we didn’t have much time to go back and redo her hair,” he said. “People were speculating, but what she was doing was working on her masterpiece of a visual album.”

We asked Farinah to give us the details behind each of her versatile hairstyles, and to find out the inspiration behind each of the looks, including her long, sexy waves in “Jealous,” and her ombre bob in the artistic “Mine” video. Read more...
Beyonce fans are being asked to take donations of clothing to her Auckland concerts to support families in need.

Barnardos New Zealand is partnering with Beyonce's official global charity campaign, #BeyGood, to collect donations at her concerts.

The charity will host a donation centre at each concert, and fans are being asked to bring items of clothing to help Barnardos support children and families.

Barnardos chief executive Jeff Sanders said the charity was honoured by the opportunity to distribute the clothing to vulnerable families.

"We're proud that Beyonce is using her platform to share the positive impact Barnardos has on local communities. We're incredibly grateful for her support of Barnardos," Mr Sanders said.

Visitors to the Barnardos New Zealand mobile donation site will also have a chance to win surprise gifts from Beyonce including an official #BeyGood t-shirt, a personally autographed photo or a concert seat upgrade.

Beyonce's Mrs Carter Show is at Auckland's Vector Arena for four nights from October 16.

In related news, Beyonce will reportedly wear a new outfit designed by Dennis Kolpodinos starting Wednesday!
For her three performances last weekend at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center—which is co-owned by her husband Jay Z, who also made a surprise appearance at the last show—Beyoncé pulled out all the stops. The three performances marked the end of the first American leg of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, so Bey celebrated by donning not one but two custom looks desinged by Gucci creative director Frida Giannini.

First up: an embroidered mini-dress embellished with metallic sequins and feathers in a “degrade effect” from taupe to deep red. Then Bey closed out her show in an embroidered three quarter sleeve V-neck optical beaded top and white silk stretch trousers.

“Designing for Beyoncé was great fun as she always puts on an amazing live show,” Giannini said in a statement. “I wanted the outfits to bring to life the assertive, powerful femininity I see in her performances. Her sheer talent, work ethic and uncompromised authenticity are her defining characteristics.”

According to Hollywood Life, Gucci confirmed that there’s more concert couture in store with the Italian designer and the Grammy-winning artist, as Beyonce will be debuting even more custom looks during the Latin American leg of her international tour, which kicks off on September 8 in Brazil.

Check out the sketches of the two outfits the singer wore at the Barclays Center in the gallery.

When Beyoncé posted the cut seen ’round the world on Instagram last night, there was one person more shocked than most: Her stylist Kim Kimble.

Kimble, the star of We TV’s L.A. Hair and Beyoncé’s longtime stylist, had drawn up a whole hair concept for a video they were shooting together this weekend — and now she has to go back to the drawing board.

“I had a whole plan laid out … I wanted to do a retro ‘50s type of hair. I feel like there’s going to be a meeting soon!” she tells PEOPLE, laughing. “It won’t be the long, wavy, typical hair, but I’m really excited to do something different. No matter what, she knows I’ll give her what she wants!”

Kimble says her reaction upon seeing the new do on Instagram Wednesday night was more than surprised — it was emotional. “I got a little teary eyed!” she confesses. “I’ve been working for her so long, she has this beautiful long hair and it’s hard to grow hair out. I feel like it’s my hair, I work so much with her. I feel a little emotional but excited for her too. Maybe I’ll cut my hair off now. Short hair, don’t care!”

And despite many commenters speculating Beyoncé just removed her weave or extensions, Kimble says, “She had great, thick long hair, which she cut off because she’s ready to make a statement. It’s a great to make: I’m beautiful, sexy, bold and I can do it all. She’s the perfect model for that: A working woman, mom, superstar, businesswoman. She’s powerful in herself. “

So what does Kimble have in mind for this particular superstar at Saturday’s video shoot? She’s still working on the concept, but she’s excited to experiment with the star’s new “easy, effortless style” — whether she plays up her natural curls or goes for something more sleek — and she plans to experiment with grooming creams, waxes and her own shine serum.

But regardless of what anyone else thinks of the style “It had to be her decision,” Kimble says. “This was a big step, and it’s perfect timing.” Read more...


Beyonce is redefining the "Pixie Dream Girl" stereotype. On Wednesday, Aug. 7, the 31-year-old "Grown Woman" singer made headlines when she ditched her long locks in favor of a blonde pixie 'do. No explanation was offered along with the Instagram pictures of her new hair, but her colorist, Rita Hazan, tells Us Weekly it's a sign of Queen Bey's self-confidence.

"I was shocked. I think she was just feeling empowered, like a strong woman, and she said she's been feeling it for a long time," Hazan says of the star's stunning cropped coif. "She didn't want to hide behind her hair in real life."

In fact, Beyonce's long extensions have become a big part of her onstage persona. But Hazan, for one, loves the new look. "I'm so happy because the extensions give women the wrong expectation of what their hair should look like -- it's great for onstage, but everyday women shouldn't have or want to have five pounds of hair on their head," she tells Us. "This hair is more natural, more realistic."

It's also much lighter -- in more ways than one. Before Beyonce debuted the 'do, her hair "was a honey blonde, a darker blonde," Hazan explains. " it took some time to do -- like four hours -- because we wanted to keep her natural color at the root so it would grow out well. We made it a champagne blonde -- it's very old Hollywood, like a Marilyn Monroe blonde."

"This shade shows women of every color that they can wear this shade. Just make sure that it's healthy -- healthy hair will keep the color longer," she adds. "My personal thought is that every woman can be blonde as long as it's the right shade of blonde for your skin color. And Beyonce pulls it off!" Read more...


The Hook’s Gregory DelliCarpini Jr. sat down with Beyonce’s stylist Ty Hunter to chat all things fashion, red carpets and Sasha Fierce.

Ty, the man behind Beyonce’s ferocious style, has been working with the singer for over 16 years.

“I was working in a store in Houston and I met Ms. Tiny and we just clicked instantly,” He revealed to Billboard. “I had a day off and called her to see if she needed help. The rest is history. The next week I was at the Grammys.”

From the famed metal glove she rocked in the “Single Ladies” video, to the plush gown she wore to sing “The Star Spangled Banner” during President Barack Obama’s second inauguration, Ty’s been Bey’s secret weapon behind her iconic looks.

An early encounter with stunning Motown legend Diana Ross sparked his interest in style. “My mom and dad took me to see Diana Ross and I was in awe of all the costume changes and the hair. I became a fan right away and that’s what steered me into fashion.”

Above, watch Ty break down his top 10 Beyonce looks of all time and open up about his favorite red carpet moment.
Beyoncé—superstar, tastemaker, Givenchy flame-wearer—kicked off the U.S. leg of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in L.A. on June 28. She already debuted a wealth of flashy wares in Europe, like custom costumes by The Blonds, David Koma, Dsquared², and Emilio Pucci. But, for her Stateside performances, Mrs. Carter is adding a few sartorial surprises. And she tapped emerging Israeli designer Alon Livné to make them.

The pair ignited their creative relationship back in February after Beyoncé’s stylists, Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith, attended the 27-year-old’s debut New York Fashion Week presentation. Smith reported back to Bey, who quickly fell in love with with one of Livné’s metal-embellished Pre-Fall gowns, and requested customized versions—in red—for her and her backup dancers to wear on the tour.

Based in Tel Aviv, where he owns two stores, Livné returned to New York earlier this month to show his Resort ’14 collection to retailers. And not long after his arrival, he got a call. “They asked me if I could do something special,” Livné told Style.com—the “they” being Beyoncé’s stylists, and her mother, Tina. “I said yes, of course.” There was one problem, though—he had nowhere to work. But when you’re designing for pop culture’s reigning queen, nothing is impossible. Beyoncé’s camp set him up in an office with an industrial sewing machine, and he got to it. “I think the fact that they were willing to help me make these dresses, and to give me a studio, was so amazing,” offered Livné. “I mean, it’s Beyoncé. She can go anywhere from Chanel to Givenchy and pick whatever she likes, and she helped me.”

The fruit of his labor is a scarlet corset sprinkled with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals, the sketch of which debuts exclusively above. The look will serve as Ms. Knowles’ show-opener during the tour. Livné also made the star a printed gown with metal details, and a bevy of costumes for her backup dancers. Read more...
Dennis Kolpodinos, who designed the blue catsuit for Beyonce's tour, confirmed that the singer is going to wear new costumes during the U.S. leg of The Mrs. Carter Show! The designer posted a photo of the outfit on his Instagram along with the caption: "The Mrs Carter show in U.S.A....new outfits soon #denniskolpodinos #beyonce #themrscartershow #mrscarter"

Zara Larsson, a Swedish singer, also posted pictures of her meeting with Beyonce on her Instagram.

Beyoncé continues to collaborate and expand her reach.

In celebration of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, dress rental site Rent the Runway announced today it has partnered with the superstar for a special Beyoncé Boutique.

On a special page, Rentherunway.com/Beyonce, you can browse a selection of dresses hand-picked by Queen Bey.

They are not gowns along the lines of her amazing Met gala getup. These are short and sparkly party dresses. Prices are mostly $50 and $75, although one Moschino gold damask mini carries a rental price tag of $400.

"Making women feel confident and beautiful is something I've always been passionate about. That's why joining forces with Rent the Runway was so organic, says Beyoncé in the announcement. "It's more than just access to beautiful clothes; it's about making women look and feel their best."
