Split personality

Is Beyonce suffering from a split personality?

One day she is Sasha Fierce in a robo-glove, and the next day she is Miss South Carolina in the mother of all beauty pageant dresses by Zuhair Murad. With pageant hair to match. And why do her bosoms look like they have been encased and shellacked in a Glad trash bag?

Beat it

Beyonce is going through a lot to conceal her wedding ring. Or she is channeling her inner Michael Jackson. Either way, I don’t get this armadillo glove.

At least her Gareth Pugh dress looks better than the white version.

Does that make me crazy? Possibly.

It must be hard to be Beyonce’s little sister. The lady is super-beautiful, super-talented, and (apparently) super-nice. She can sing, she can dance, she can act…she’s got it all.

Since Beyonce has taken all those superlatives for herself, it seems that Solange Knowles decided to go for the last descriptive left… crazy.

To her credit, Solange completely excels at crazy. The girl *owns* crazy. Hook, line and sinker. Case in point: her get up for last night’s Letterman appearance. Is she for real? A topshop feather bolero jacket? A ten-pound gold chain? And schizophrenic booties?

It is a sad day when Kim Kardashian shows up looking twenty times classier.

A little lesson in editing

May 14, 2008 at 7:25 pm (Beret, Beyonce, Necklace, Plaid) ()

This is a wonderful reminder of Fashion Editing 101. There is nothing totally wrong about the skirt. Or the blouse. Or the jacket. Or the necklaces. Or the tights. Or the purse. Or the hat. Or the earrings. Wait, I take that back. The earrings are a bit yucky. But you get the point. Each of these pieces, or even three of these pieces, could work. But the whole package is too much. Even for Beyonce, who can pull off extravagance very well.

And why would she go for such an overstated outfit, and then spend ZERO time on her make up (except for bright pink lip gloss) and hair?
