Beyonce does not want to attend Kim and Kanye’s ‘Tacky’ wedding

Mrs. Beyonce Carter has been reportedly throwing shade at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Summer Wedding invite to Paris.

Rumors began circulating Monday, March 17 about the 17-time Grammy award winner’s “diverish” attitude toward Kimye’s dream ceremony in May.

Jay Z has given his two cents on the matter regarding Kim and Kanye’s wedding and he does not want Queen Bey or daughter Blue Ivy being recorded by E! cameras during the event; That simple.

A source reported that ‘Yonce has allegedly told “friends” her take on the cameras as well and it is nothing pretty:

Jay and Beyonce’s wedding was shrouded in secrecy and extreme lengths were made to make sure their wedding was an intimate affair for friends and family, only. This will be the complete opposite. She thinks it’s just tacky.
Beyonce’s motto has always been, less is more. But clearly when it comes to Kim, more means more.She knows she’ll have to go to the wedding, but really does not to want to.

The insider said the only reason the pop diva, 32, will attend the I Do’s in Paris on May 24 is because West “considers them family.

Make no mistake, the only reason Beyoncé is going to the wedding is because Jay is best friend’s with Kanye.There is no way Kanye would ever even dare to ask Jay or Beyonce to sign a non-disclosure agreement, or take away their cell phones. He knows that neither one of them would betray his trust.”

The Best Dresses for Pear-Shaped Women

A woman with a pear-shaped figure has narrow shoulders, a relatively small bust, tapered waist and comparatively large hips and thighs. If you have a pear-shaped figure, shop for a dress that accents your upper body and draws the eyes away from the hips and thighs to create an illusion of balance.

Neckline Highlights

A dress that highlights the neckline, such as a halter dress, will draw the eye to your slender neck and shoulders. The bottom part of the dress should skim over your hips and thighs, not cling to them.

Empire Waist

A dress with an empire waist and a fitted bodice draws the eye to the petite upper body of a pear-shaped woman. The skirt should flare only slightly or hang straight with little volume.

Strapless or Spaghetti Straps

Strapless dresses or spaghetti-strap dresses give the illusion of broader shoulders and thus balance out the body so your figure looks less bottom-heavy.

Embellished Tops

A dress with an embellished bodice and a plain skirt puts the emphasis above the waist and minimizes your fuller hips and thighs.

Snug Waistline

A dress that caresses your waist and flares out slightly at the hips creates the flattering look of an hourglass figure. Take care that the waist is not too tight.

2014 Moschino Collection receives great feedback from fashion critics and fans

Designer Jeremy Scott made his runway debut at the 2014 Fall/Winter Fashion Show in Milan, Italy in February 20. In order to pay homage to Franco Moschino in the fashion house that he built, the designer from Missouri went all- out.

There were references to food companies like McDonald’s and Budweiser, food couture (yes, there were candy-bar-wrapper, gummy-bear and popcorn-bag dresses) and there were also references to Rue Cambon (and Chanel), that could be easily pin-pointed as models strutted down the runway in quilted leather jackets and embellished in gold chains.

Massimo Ferretti, chairman of Moschino’s parent company, Aeffe SpA, has said the designer change was necessary.

“Every now and again, fashion needs to be renovated and shaken,” said Ferretti. “Just as Franco did in the eighties.”

What many fashion bloggers anticipated to be a very controversial assortment turned out to be an overall accepted and even liked collection. In fact, the lateness of celebrity Katy Perry, who held up the show for an hour, made the crowd more unpleased than the quirkiness of the collection did. (It went from boos to cheers in a short period of time.)

Refinery29, Vogue, Style.com, and Glam had no complaints. Woman’s Wear Daily only had one complaint – and that was only because of Scott waiting on Perry and leaving fashion mavens waiting for the show to begin.

“Today’s Moschino presentation was a crowd-pleaser. Katy Perry and her friends in the front row were eating it up,” Tim Banks of Style.com said. “Scott’s embrace of consumer culture in the name of Moschino was bright, brash, and ingenious.”

“The crowd certainly lapped it up,” Women’s Wear Daily acknowledged that happy crowd. “From the SpongeBob SquarePants sweaters and leather goods to Scott’s take on slogan chic: a sleek mink coat with ‘Fur Real’ in intarsia and a white leather suit with black splotches reading ‘Cash Cow.’”

Commenters on WWD article also seemed to think that the collection was successful.

“Kudos to Mr. Scott,” commented WWD site visitor Bacchus. “Never did like his work but this seems a fine fit and with the house’s execution, may just be a match made in heaven…”

Facebook users all around loved Scott’s bravery and wit.

“Some much needed wit and humor injected back into fashion again! ….Everything lately has gotten so pretentious and is just a pose that’s trying too hard to be ‘cool’,” Facebook user Eddi Frantz commented. “It was all crumbling under the weight of its own seriousness. Fashion needs to smile a bit more. It’s been a long time.”

Some users didn’t have lengthy, in-depth things to say about it, but still showed their adoration for his work.

“Impossible not to love!” Facebook user Marina Colerato said.

“Nowhere could the appearance of a McDonald’s reference seem so out of context and therefore appear so strong, than in a country that fetishizes its local cuisine, and where fast food has still largely to infiltrate,” Kerry Olson at Vogue wrote. Despite the wackiness of the collection, she praised Scott’s decision to dedicate pieces to conformity. “Smartly, though there was a dedication to some form of conformity too, seen in the label’s ladylike silhouettes; mainly pencil skirts, fitted jackets, and evening coats.”

The biggest downfall of the Moschino show was not the collection itself, but the appearance of Katy Perry (and the fact that she was an hour late). Otherwise, Scott’s collection received good feedback from fashion critics and fans.

“Amazing work! A pure presentation/mirror of our ironic time. Which is what fashion is all about. I was left really high by how intricate and intelligent the collection is. The mixing of the different codes is sooo crazy!!” Facebook user Maria Jaber praised. “You brought many of us faith that you could still play and absorb like a child, and then execute like a master. Chapeau bas! And thank you, a real big thank you Jeremy Scott.”

5 Must-Have Cold Weather Tights

When temps dip, covering up doesn’t mean sacrificing style for warmth. Tights keep the cold out, but they can also extend the life of your spring and fall ensembles when you layer them under your favorite skirt or dress and pair them with boots or other closed-toe shoes. The plethora of styles, colors and weights also give you options whether your winters are harsh or mild. From practical to sexy, a pair of tights exists for every occasion, climate and mood.

Sweater Tights: Cozy and Versatile

If winter means braving icy cold and biting wind, these are a must, said Lindsay Viker, fashion blogger for Couture in the Suburbs in Phoenix. Opt for neutral colors to keep your legs looking long and lean, or pick up a pair with a sewn-in pattern for a little fun. Consider pairing them with your favorite boots, pencil skirt and oversized sweater. “Think of a sweater wrapped around your legs, without the added volume.

Opaque: A Reliable Classic

The go-to winter hosiery in every gal’s closet, this classic staple comes in a variety of colors, goes with just about any ensemble and is great for less-intense climates. For cold regions, Viker suggested wearing two pairs — one to hold in your body heat and one to combat the chilly air outside. In milder regions, wear one pair with a dress, layer with a blazer and finish with a scarf. “Now, your favorite dress doesn’t have to hang in the closet all winter.

Colorful: Fun, Bold and Bright

If you are in search of a pair that can transition your spring ensembles into the fall and winter seasons, try a bold hue like burnt orange, oxblood or deep purple. Eye-catching tones also offer a little pick-me-up on a gloomy day. “Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try unexpected pairings this winter.

Patterns: Warm and Trendy

Perfect for anyone who lives in a city where the winters are relatively mild, these tights will let you layer for cooler weather without making you uncomfortably warm, Viker said. Knee-high socks are a great way to try out the trend without making a full commitment to an all-over pattern. “Stay within one color family to prevent your look from being too busy.”

Metallic: Add a Little Sparkle

Have a dressy pair on hand for those formal dinner parties, cocktail fetes, night at the opera or any occasion when you’re going to need more coverage than what your little black dress can offer. “If you’re going to be outside at night, choose a thicker tight with larger sparkles so they still make an impact.

8 Looks for the Art of Casual Chic

Though casual chic may sound like an oxymoron, the truth is that you can look chic in almost anything you wear (sans workout gear and pajamas). The key to mastering the art of casual chic is to combine comfortable clothing with a hint of sophisticated flair. That flair may be demonstrated by your shoe choice, accessories, hair or even absolute confidence in your appearance. Once you’ve mastered the casual chic look, you’ll always have something to wear no matter where you go, be it a cocktail party, grocery store or barbecue.

Flirty Chic

The colorful palette on this otherwise sophisticated, streamlined dress takes Sarah Jessica Parker straight into the realm of casual chic. Her getup is dressy enough for an afternoon or evening of cocktails and mingling, but could also work while running errands or at a low-key lunch. To achieve a flirty, casual chic look like this one, wear a well-fitted dress with comfortable shoes and relaxed hair.

Street-Wear Chic

As senior fashion market editor of “Harper’s Bazaar,” Joanna Hillman knows a thing or two about fashion. Here, the blond-haired maven looks calm, cool and collected in her baggy blue blouse and neutral skirt. Create this look by wearing slightly oversized apparel paired with texturized locks, sunglasses and minimal jewelry.

Leopard Chic

Mischa Barton shows her wild side in a leopard print top and ballet flats. She keeps the knee-length skirt casual and youthful with a simple hairstyle and minimalist accessories. Pairing her printed top with a denim A-Line skirt and studded belt keeps the look casual, but the bold prints provide an extra wow-factor. Her black tights and flats make the ensemble perfect for fall. Add a neutral-colored jacket and you’re set for winter, too!

Summer Chic

Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian is all about laid-back apparel. She pairs a very casual, loose T-shirt and tattered denim shorts with heels to instantly transform the look into casual chic. Heels are an easy way to dress up any casual look, whether you’re in leggings, jeans, a blazer or jumpsuit. For a touch of flirty flair, wear a splashy accessory as Kardashian does.

Trendy Chic

The always trending Linda Papadopoulos, psychologist and author, keeps the momentum going with this creamy fitted blazer and dark denim jean. To bring her ensemble up to chic-dom, she layers with a flowing, patterned scarf. Scarves, like heels, instantly add a bit of chic sophistication to any look. Try one in a neutral color, like Papadopoulos, or a splashy color if you’re feeling frisky.

Autumn Chic

What makes model-turned-photographer Delfina Blaquier’s outfit casual chic is her layering techniques. Without the trench-length cardigan and colorful scarf, the white dress underneath would read more dressy than casual. Experiment with layering your outfits to create a casual, yet fashion-forward look.

Hippie Chic

Actress Gillian Zinser, seen with actor Tristan Wilds, channels her inner hippie with this casual chic ensemble. The short jeans paired with a fun, patterned top makes her outfit instantly interesting. Add the purple, matching headband and it’s a fashion-forward ensemble. To master the art of casual chic you must not be afraid to take fashion risks.

Formal & Fun

Blake Lively, actress and fashionista, is known in the fashion world for her eclectic taste and flare for red carpet outfits. Though this particular outfit is more formal than casual, Lively layers the sheerness of her blouse and lace skirt with a fitted blazer. Her flattering blazer says business, but the ethereal quality of her top and its lack of structure add a touch of casualness. Combine formal elements with daytime fabrics like a light-colored lace for a similar look.

Marc Jacobs pushes the fashion technology boundaries with NYFW ‘Tweet Shop’

It started as a whisper, a rumor carried along the social media channels and blogs…something was stirring in Marc Jacobs huge empire. Something big. Something new. Something FREE. The confirmation came on the RackedNY pop-up page: Marc Jacobs was doing a pop up that would accept tweets as payment for gods.

Commence screaming. Because free anything is ok, but free MARC JACOBS anything is nirvana.

The pop-up shop phenomenon has been holding steady for the past few years, but being able to pay for merchandise with social media sets up a whole new level of engagement. It lures in die-hard fans, generates TONS of buzz, and is basically the most fun anyone can have doing their social media chores.

I went by the store and was waiting with friends when it opened. It was a crystal clear morning, so there were very few people waiting. Once in the door, we all clustered around the prize table tweeting to win an array of merchandise. I actually won a lovely enamel and brass Daisy pin/locket that opens to reveal a cache of solid perfume. (full disclosure: I also received a large bottle of Daisy gratis for being press. It’s good to be a writer/photographer/blogger/fashionista!).

The store was 1,764 square feet of fun. Guests could wander over to the photo area, and get instant polaroids taken. You could hang out and just listen to DJ Jilly Hendrix spin, or grab tea and lattes from the Bluestone Lane Coffee stand. Ben Rosenberg and Isabella Jacuzzi were the amiable Australians who managed to make 3 days of non-stop coffee making look easy. Beverage in hand, you could withstand the queue that instantly formed for free Marc Jacobs Beauty manicures. Throughout the day we were treated to the romantic, dreamy tv spot directed Virgin Suicides auteur Sofia Coppola. .

The Tweet shop is closed? But you can have some Bluestone Lane Coffee at their locations at 803 3rd Avenue and 30 Broad Street

Throughout the day, more prizes were given and at one point Disney star Bella Thorne wandered in followed by celebrity photographer Sarah Jay Weiss. As the crowd got bigger, people ran around taking photos of themselves looking to take the most creative images for a chance to be featured on the Marc Jacobs Fragrances social media sites. I was lucky and got an image chosen, a shot of my lovely pin in my Caboodles makeup case.

Are you green with envy or do you just love wearing such a universally-flattering color at this time of the year? Green is so beautiful against every skin tone that I am sure it is something you have at least mulled over wearing this summer.

Concerned on how it would work on you? Everyone can wear green; you just need to find the shade with the yellow or blue-based undertone which looks best for you! Once you have held a few garments of each up to your skin (particularly up to your face), you will soon find your best color range which will offer many fun, seasonal pieces to add to your wardrobe.

If you do not want to wear a garment that is all green, you can easily coordinate items to your wardrobe that just include green in them. Some of those seen this season include sunglasses with green lenses, beach-friendly pants with a patchwork of fabrics including greens, an accent heel on a stiletto, or an accent pocket on a skirt.

Maybe you want an elegant evening look or perhaps you are in the market for a memorable set of coordinated accessories.
