Beyonce reveals a snippet of what may be her wedding gown in "I Was Here (Live at the Roseland)" video

 

Impending motherhood seems to be making Beyonce a lot less private. Just two months after revealing the “love growing inside of [her]” at the MTV VMAs,  Beyonce has revealed what may be the gown she wore the day she and Jay-Z tied the knot. In her new video “I Was Here (Live at the Roseland)”, the singer takes viewers through a chronological visual of her life from her local singing contest days to present. Watch the video below for a pint-size Beyonce’s speech “I love you, Houston!” and a peak at her wedding dress. The star still kept something for herself — no full-length shot, no shoes. Maybe we’ll find that out when the baby’s born.

While we expected the future Queen of England and reigning Duchess Kate Middleton to wear a tiara on her wedding day, so-called commoners are crowning themselves on their big days too.

Alicia Keys rocked a jeweled headpiece with her Vera Wang gown the day she married producer Swizz Beatz, and this Saturday Kim Kardashian reprised the look. Wearing a Vera Wang gown with a diamond headband, Kardashian looked every bit the Princess Bride.

Is the “Church Hat”/Kentucky Derby Topper About to Go Mainstream?

Princess_Eugenie_Black_Churchgoer_Wear_Feather_hats_Bluefly_blog_Flypaper.jpg

Royal Toppers: Princess Eugenie and the cover star of Michael Cunningham’s Crowns: Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats

Though flamboyant hats are de rigueur among British society — they were required at Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding — toppers that resemble bird’s nests/cable satellite dishes/children’s boat toys/etc are generally left to church services and the Kentucky Derby in the States. But that may change now that the Royal Wedding hats are generating almost as much chatter as Kate Middleton’s Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress.

Princess_Beatrice_Royal_Wedding_Hat_Facebook_Page_Bluefly_blog_Flypaper.jpg
With William’s cousin Princess Beatrice inspiring a Facebook page in debate over her sculptural headgear, and Stateside milliner Eugenia Kim citing increased orders of “fascinators” since the Royal Wedding was seen by over 2 billion watchers worldwide, I’m curious to know if you’ll be rocking a “church hat” or Kentucky Derby-esque topper with your snazzier spring/summer ensembles? Especially now that we’re approaching High Wedding season…

Will Kate Middleton’s Lace Long Sleeves End the Era of the Strapless/One Shoulder Dress?

Strapless dresses have been a stubborn style mainstay in the evening dress category forever, it seems. (See Oscar Fashions from 2011, 2010, and 2009.) More recently, the one-shoulder — or “bold shoulder” as we like to call it — has grabbed share thanks to Red Carpet support from stars like Kate Winslet, Marisa Tomei, and Heidi Klum.

But Kate Middleton’s long sleeved wedding gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen has many style pundits announcing the death knell for dresses that expose shoulder. What do you think? Does the Duchess of Cambridge’s Grace Kelly-reminiscent wedding gown inspire you to cover up?

Kate_Middleton_Royal_Wedding_Cartier_tiara_Bluefly_blog_Flypaper-570.jpg
Kate Middleton’s something borrowed was the Cartier tiara Queen Elizabeth loaned her (the tiara was presented to Queen Elizabeth by her mother on her 18th birthday, according to the Official Royal Wedding blog), but the diamond and pearl drop earrings she wore were a gift from her parents Michael and Carol Middleton, according to E! An understated, yet totally luxe choice for England’s new Duchess of Cambridge — and you (remember: today, EVERYONE’S a princess). Treat yourself!
