No one releases holiday merchandise like Beyoncé does. She is the gift that keeps giving. The latest addition to her fashion empire is a holiday-themed collection just in time for Valentine’s Day. Queen Bey is so extra that she doesn’t want you to spend this special day in ordinary clothes. Instead, she made sure to fulfill all of your style wishes.
We are talking about a ten-piece merch line, that will have you more than ready for Valentine’s Day. Just like all of the previous releases, this one also features catchy quotes that only Beyoncé put together. This time she came up with fun and sexy ones, as a perfect nod to the upcoming holiday. The merchandise includes several pieces that will have your bae all over you. There is no one better than B when it comes to referencing their songs on clothing and accessories. Lyrics from “Lemonade’ are a gracing the collection. The “All Night’ song has a style moment on color-block shirts.
And there is also one quote that will bring you more than 10 years back in time. Shirts and phone cases celebrate the mega-hit from 2003, “Baby Boy’, that we all loved as teenagers. The inviting “Fulfil My Fantasies’ sentence is more than enough to make your Valentine’s Day special.
We’ve already witnessed on many occasions that everything that Beyoncé touches turns to gold. So there isn’t a single doubt that her Valentine’s Day merchandise will sell like crazy. The Beyhive army is already stocking their shopping carts with shirts, phone cases, and shorts. Just leave it to Queen B to make all your holidays much better.
Get your wallets ready for another fun collection. You can shop the 10-piece line on beyonce.com. If you are a long-year fan of Beyoncé, better head to the website before everything sells out. Another great idea is to get your favorite item as a gift from bae. All you need to do is sent hints, and you’ll be a proud owner of Bey’s latest collection.
The mega-popular singer is no strange to launching collections that celebrate her favorite days of the year. Just one month ago we got to enjoy her super-innovative merch for the Christmas holidays. The same thing happened for the previous New Year’s festive season. As a tribute to the one-year anniversary of her amazing album “Lemonade’, B dropped an entire line of clothes and accessories.

Everyone’s favorite affordable brand, Glossier got a stamp of approval from one of the biggest stars in the music industry. During the Grammy Awards weekend, Queen B and Glossier low-key teased one of the brand’s latest products. So far no one knows what kind of release we should expect.
Celebrity makeup artist Sir John, who did Beyonce‚àö√â‚àö√ñ’s makeup shared all of the products he used while creating her beauty looks, except for one. It all started when Glossier took it to Instagram and gave out hints that the superstar is the first one to test drive their new product. This detail left us all intrigued and eager to get more details as soon as possible.
When no one expected that such a big star as Beyonce‚àö√â‚àö√ñ could be using the same makeup products as the rest of us, the signer proved everyone wrong. All of her makeup looks during the Grammy weekend were mostly done with affordable products by Glossier and L’Oréal Paris. The photo that caused all the buzz is from the Roc Nation’s pre-Grammy brunch, where Bey looked more than flawless. It was Sir John who first posted the photo, followed by a re-post from Glossier. The brand shared an interesting caption, that doesn’t reveal too much. It also gives just enough clues to keep us guessing all day long.
According to most fans, the new release is probably an eyeshadow. The first thing that points out in that direction is that Glossier placed the tag on Beyonce‚àö√â‚àö√ñ’s eye. This was followed by an eyes emoji in the caption. The makeup guru, also used the same product for the night of the Grammys, when he paired a fierce cat eye with bold purple lipstick.
“I worked closely with Beyonce‚àö√â‚àö√ñ and the team to create three very strong looks for each event and we wanted to make a major impact on Grammys night. The inspiration was Black Panther and if I describe the beauty look as ‘rebellion.’ She is wearing a large hat, sunglasses and strong hair so I wanted the makeup to compliment that. I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to try a new and exciting product from Glossier. Stay tuned to hear more but I LOVED using it on Bey all weekend.”- Sir John explained.
Whether it’s some type of eyeshadow, mascara or other eye product, only time will tell. Until then you can still copy Queen B’s glowing makeup look, by following John’s guide. Make sure to try Glossier’s Boy Brow to get bold brows like the singer. For a perfect skin, the renowned makeup artist used the Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream and the Perfecting Skin Tint in Dark + Deep.
Beyoncé is blessing us with a brand new drop. Queen B shared the news on her social media accounts yesterday. It is officially time to shop her latest holiday merchandise. This season she is back with another collection of festive items. If you thought that Christmas can’t get any better, you were terribly wrong. The exclusive collection features sweatshirts, cropped tees, ornaments, wrapping paper, phone cases, onesies and more.
Last year’s capsule was all about her award-winning album Lemonade. She introduced so many cool phrases that are still popular among her fans. For 2017’s festive season, the singer got into the Christmas spirit and released a capsule collection right in time for holidays. Queen B offers you another strong reason to spend more money.
Her holiday merchandise is all about cheeky lines. They are written all over clothing, ornaments, and other items. Yonce offers a unique range of sweaters that will keep you warm and transform you into a stylish diva. These are not the regular holiday lines that you are used to. The singer made the whole capsule revolve around her. When no one thought that she could do better than last year’s “I Sleigh All Day’ iconic pieces, Bey is introducing more chic phrases.
The first thing that comes to mind when you hear holiday collection is probably the ugly Christmas sweater trend. There is nothing ugly in Bey’s new line. Her sweaters are simple but ultimately chic. Only Beyoncé can plaster several quotes on sweatshirts and make them look amazing. They are available in several colors like black, purple, red and green. You will see quotes such as “Holidayonce’, “Have a Thicc Holiday’, “Slay Bells’, “Sis the Season’, “Beyoncé Holiday Sweater’ and more.
Beyoncé’s holiday capsule is already available on her website. The most surprising thing is that the price range is very acceptable. It starts at $12 for the chic ornaments that come in several different styles and shapes. The most expensive thing in the capsule is the Yonce onesies for adults that sell at $85.
This is one of the most affordable celebrity releases so far. Queen B has everyone covered with her low-priced merchandise. The members of Bey Hive are already going crazy over the new items, so it’s more than clear that they will sell out extremely fast. Better get your wallet and start shopping. The affordable character of the merch is so good that you can even get some of her unique sweaters as gifts for your friends and family.

The new Ivy Park spring 2017 campaign is everything that could be expected of Ivy Park, packed with athleticism and star power, good intentions and meaningful imagery. Starring in the campaign ad is a group of women, who are socially conscious and fashionably aware. The cast of the ad campaign is impressive, including models, athletes, actresses, and, of course, socially conscious activists. Currently, the collection is available at Nordstrom, Revolve, and Topshop International.
The Ivy Park spring 2017 collection includes lace up sweatshirts, awesome Ivy Park branded hoodies and garters and bodysuits, many of which feature cut outs, as well as expected compression pants and sports tops. Costs are reasonable, ranging from $10 to $75 throughout the collection.
Obviously Beyoncé, who recently broke the Internet announcing her pregnancy on Instagram, is in Topshop’s Ivy Park spring 2017 ad campaign, but we also see a few other incredible people like Yara Shahidi, the sixteen-year-old activist and actress who is currently starring on the TV show Blackish. Not only is she an activist, but she is also a black belt in Karate and she makes certain to express how Karate and being physically fit works with her activism.
According to Yara this combination works for her because “Karate influences activism in so many ways. Partly because it’s a self-discipline and learning 1) how to humble yourself and 2) how to stay centered… When you’re centered, it’s easy to do all the other things you want to do.”
The daughter of Lauryn Hill ” Selah Marley is also in the campaign and she is as proactively minded as her mother and her famous grandfather Bob Marley. As a former gymnast and current model, Selah prefers to stay in shape using basketball currently. The Ivy Park spring 2017 ad campaign also features rising star model Sophie Koella, who is an avid skier, passionate about the comradery of female athletes and the fashionable comfort of athleisure.
Sophie Koella also has an incredible Instagram page. In an interview with Vogue, she said: “The most inspirational part of working for Beyoncé’s Ivy Park is how the brand is built around elevating and empowering girls of all sorts and all ages.’
Selah Marley, who agrees stated: “Sports are usually only geared towards men, and [it is empowering] simply shining a light on the fact that yes, women play sports and yes, we’re also great at what we do. I love that it highlights that women are capable of anything and we can dominate anywhere we go.’
Beyoncé’s protégés ” twins Chloe and Halle Bailey are also in the campaign video and will be seen in the newest images of the Ivy Park campaign that are scheduled to be released in March 2017. Each of options in the Ivy Park spring 2017 collection is incredible looking and sure to be a hit, just like the great majority of things Beyoncé is involved with.

It’s a bit difficult to think ahead past the upcoming fashion month, especially with all the drama surrounding different brands popping up recently ” but this is something you’ll want to keep in mind that comes a bit further down the road. The 18th annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will be taking place in April 2017 with some show-stopping artists set to take the stage.
Sisters Beyoncé and Solange Knowles will be sharing the Coachella 2017 stage for the second time, only this time the tandem appearance is scheduled! Back in 2014, Beyoncé surprised fans by joining Solange on stage during her set. Now we can look forward to seeing the sisters again, and this time we’ll definitely be ready for it!
Last year is when LEMONADE and A Seat at the Table, by Beyoncé and Solange, respectively, were released and became number one albums, making these two the first sisters in history to do so. They do have separate performance times, but that’s not to say they won’t throw in a duet for the crowd!
This is the biggest announcement Coachella has given as far as its 2017 lineup is concerned, but that doesn’t diminish the excitement surrounding the other headliners!
We’re just happy that Coachella released its entire lineup for the upcoming festival.
Genre emphases have been placed on dance music and indie rock as usual, but there is also a particularly heavy leaning toward hip-hop music as well. A couple of names from each genre include Martin Garrix and DJ Snake (dance), Bon Iver and the xx (indie), and Guccie Mane, Future, and Mac Miller (hip-hop).
Lorde will be returning to the music stage for Coachella 2017 too, so that’s another unofficial headliner to look forward to, especially for fans who have been patiently waiting for the New Zealand artist to return after what dragged on to be a three-year hiatus. The Avalanche will also be having its own reunion show, as it will be giving its first show in ten years.
Tickets are officially on sale on Coachella’s website, and can be purchased for the festival’s two April weekends ” April 14th through the 16th and April 21st through the 23rd ” in Indio, California, at the Empire Polo Club. Radiohead will headline on the Fridays, Beyoncé will headline on the Saturdays, and Kendrick Lamar will headline on the Sundays.
This is easily the best, most diverse lineup Coachella has seen in quite some time, so make sure to take a look through the entire list of performers and head over to the festival’s website to grab some tickets. Tickets might sell quicker this year due to some of the larger performances, so if you’re hoping to go, you’ll want to act fast!

The 2016 CFDA Awards took place in New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom yesterday night and we already know all the award winners, among which Beyonce took home the statuette for the 2016 CFDA Fashion Icon Award! No wonder she looked like a real fashion icon in a glittering pinstripe Givenchy pantsuit, accessorized with precious diamond rings and earrings, as well as a super wide-brimmed black hat. While we have always considered Beyonce a flawless fashion icon, who constantly inspires her fans with her drop-dead gorgeous red carpet appearances and day-to-day casual looks, the news was kind of a surprise, since the organization had kept the award winner a secret until the ceremony this year.
Among the most noteworthy CFDA 2016 Award winners are Marc Jacobs, who is the best womenswear designer of the year, menswear designer of the year Thom Browne, accessories designer of the year Mansur Gavriel, and Gucci’s Alessandro Michele, who won CFDA’s International Award. Overall, it was a star-studded event with Naomi Campbell, Ciara, Alexa Chung, Karlie Kloss and many others shining bright like diamonds with their to-die-for designer gowns and beauty choices.
Beyonce, who made an appearance at the ceremony with hubby Jay-Z and cutie pie Blue Ivy, was actually on a break from her Formation Tour, and it was quite unexpected to see her at the event. She received the award from CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg, who praised her for her latest Topshop venture, the uber-successful Ivy Park activewear line, as well as for her remarkable influence over the fashion industry, in general.
Onstage, she pronounced a great speech, expressing her gratitude for the award and talking about her fashion background, stating that fashion has always been part of her life, even before she was born, since her grandmother was actually a seamstress. Since her grandparents didn’t have money for their daughter’s Catholic school tuition, her grandma “sewed clothes for the priests and the nuns and made uniforms for the students in exchange for my mother’s education. She then passed this gift onto my mother and taught her how to sew,’ stated the songstress.
She then praised all the fashion designers out there, who are like “airy godmothers, magicians, sculptors, and sometimes even our therapists’ working tirelessly to make each person see her own reflection, teaching them “how to embrace their complications, and see the flaws.’
With her Fashion Icon Award, Beyonce joins the list of such fashion influencers, as Pharrell Williams, Johnny Depp, Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman, and Rihanna, who caused quite a controversy when appearing in a naked Adam Selman dress to accept her award back in 2014.

With less than two days left until the official launch of her activewear line (and maybe new album too), Beyoncé’s Ivy Park SS 2016 lookbook is finally available and ready to be obsessively browsed through. Those who follow Queen B on her main social media accounts already have had a glimpse of what her highly anticipated activewear line is all about, namely featuring tons of leggings and bodysuits with motivational logos. Ivy Park, which will be available at Topshop, Nordstrom and Net-a-Porter, offers one-of-a-kind staples with the price tags ranging from below $100 to over $200 (the entire collection itself is neither affordable nor too expensive, so if you are interested in buying some Beyonce-approved pieces without spending too much money, we recommend specifically taking a look at the motivational t-shirts and tops).
Anyways, just by looking at the lookbook’s first proposals we see that Beyoncé indeed focused on delivering a fully body-positive collection with pieces ranging in sizes from XXS to XL, encouraging women to embrace their bodies and start living a healthier life, rather than merely going with the flow when it comes to the diehard athleisure trend. “My goal with Ivy Park is to push the boundaries of athletic wear and to support and inspire women who understand that beauty is more than your physical appearance. True beauty is in the health of our minds, hearts, and bodies. I know that when I feel physically strong, I am mentally strong and I wanted to create a brand that made other women feel the same way,” recently declared Beyoncé when asked about the purpose behind her Ivy Park collection, proving once again she will always be in the front line when it comes to fighting for equal rights and women’s empowerment.
As for the line-up, the 200-piece collection not only features a big diversity in styles, but an appealing array of artisanal and technological techniques too. Let’s take, for instance, the leggings. Available in different colors and with geometrical patterns, Ivy Park’s leggings were designed to be sweat-wicking and non-pilling, which is indeed good news for those who hate sweat stains and feel uncomfortable working out in public. Unlike other athleisure collections, the Ivy Park line-up is filled with cozy tank tops with built-in sports bras, embellished with mesh detailing and motivational quotes. One of the best technological details, however, is to be found in the range of hoodies, tank tops and other proposals that feature a bonded hole through which one can thread her headphones.
Other interesting staples include open-back sweatshirts, striped bodysuits with contrasting hems, sheer white bombers (which are the ultimate spring must-haves), oversized gray hoodies with bold ‘Ivy Park’ logos, 3D embroidered sweatshirts and funky Ivy Park beanies. While the majority of the bodysuits is available for circa $50, the sweatshirts could be found at $75, the cropped leggings at $65 and the long Capri leggings at $85. Among the more affordable pieces, low-rise shorts ($35), crewnecks ($45), and V-back tank tops ($65) are worth checking out too. As for the most expensive staples, Beyoncé’s Ivy Park brings in a ‘Reflective’ collection-within-the-collection, wherein jackets and shorts not only are making everybody run amok with their reflective detailing, but are also for sale for more than $200.

The first news about a possible Beyoncé x Topshop collaboration began breaking the Internet back in October 2014, and it took one more year to finally get any sort of confirmation. And now, on April 1st, we can finally see the first results of the joint venture between Beyonce and Sir Philip Green – the launch of the first Ivy Park collection (it’s not an April Fool’s Day prank!). To develop Beyonce‘s entire Ivy Park athleisure line, as Topshop‘s owner Sir Philip Green revealed, it took a grand total of 18 months and, apparently, it is “just the beginning’ of a brilliant journey between the two creative minds; speaking of excitement!
Named after Beyoncé and Jay Z’s daughter Blue Ivy, a preview of the collection was unveiled yesterday via the singer’s Youtube channel, where Beyoncé herself gave us a sneak peek of her athleisure-inspired Ivy Park pieces. The video consists of a well-balanced array of black & white shots, where we can spot Queen B standing in the middle of a playground, wearing her lineup’s items. The video then goes all the way into its more motivational mode, with Beyoncé running on a treadmill, stretching and working out in general. At the end, she even explains what the meaning behind the Ivy Park collection is.
“I would wake up in the morning, and my dad would come knocking on my door, telling me it’s time to go running. [‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë¬¨‚àÇ]I remember wanting to stop, but I would push myself to keep going. It taught me discipline and I would think about my dreams; I would think about the sacrifices my parents made for me. I would think about my little sister and how I was her hero. I would look at the beauty around me, the sunshine through the trees; I would keep breathing.”
The promo even features Ivy Park’s main source of inspiration, Blue Ivy, who is filmed while wearing some utterly cute mini versions of the activewear collection’s ensembles. The collection will sell starting from April 14 via 12 retail chains and in more than 50 countries, including Nordstrom (which means there’s more chance to get your hands on the pieces!), Net-a-Porter and Topshop. It’s a huge collection indeed, with more than 200 pieces the price tags of which range from $30 to $200.
Ivy Park is perfect for anyone who likes to work out, from beginner runners to those who are fitness aficionados. It has technical performance characteristics, which will make anyone feel at ease while doing either yoga or lifting up weights, and includes everything from leggings (which come in three shapes) to bodysuits, varsity socks, sport bras and of course print jackets, which will be perfect to wear from the office to the gym. All of the pieces have been created to enhance the women’s body and to make them feel empowered.
“There are things I’m still afraid of. When I have to conquer those things I still go back to that park. Before I hit the stage I go back to that park. When it was time for me to give birth, I went back to that park. The park became a state of mind. The park became my strength. The park is what made me who I am. Where is your park?”
