Video: Behind the scenes with Beyoncé’s tour stylists


While some might have you believe that the magic of Beyoncé is just that, magic, the queen is revealing the team of stylists that help her prep for daily global domination. The latest installment in a string of behind-the-scenes tour videos released on her YouTube page provides some serious designer eye-candy as we delve into the wonderful world of wardrobe for the Mrs. Carter World Tour. In the video, tour stylists Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith give an up close and personal look at all the different tour outfits and share how looks are chosen, how they come together and some insider details on those quick costume changes (think layers) from Givenchy to Ungaro and beyond. One Versace employee shares how long it took to make that insane white and silver fitted number (spoiler: a paltry 300 hours). For the Crazy in Love segment, the secret to better on-stage twerking is revealed and it includes plenty of ruffled patent leather.

Fall 2014 Trends

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.

Street Style Paris Fashion Week

See all the street style from Paris here »

You would think that after almost a month of Fashion Weeks with intense schedules, endless fashion shows and plenty of travel time, the fashion elite would be running out of things to wear. But the latest batch of street style shots from outside Paris Fashion Week depict anything but. Some of our favourite street style stars were out in full force, wearing their best and brightest, and enjoying all the fashion frivolities.  Clearly the playful vibes from Chanel’s fashion-show-turned-shopping-centre were infectious.

Besties and fellow editors, Giovanna Battaglia and Anna Dello Russo hammed it up for the cameras atop concrete bollards. Just how ADR got up there without rumpling her floor-length Spring 2014 Valentino, we’ll never know. In a coy twist on a virginal long sleeved lace dress, Kate Foley wore a strip of bright red gaffe tape strategically placed as a pseudo censor bar straight from the Preen Fall 2014 show. Several models fresh off of the Chanel runway proudly showed off their free swag courtesy of the label’s shopping aisles. (We’re more than a little jealous of Anya Ziourova’s Chanel doormat…)

Take a look at Beyonce’s new tour costumes here »

If the last few months have taught us anything where Beyoncé’s concerned, it’s to expect the unexpected. At last Friday’s opening of the European leg of her “Mrs. Carter” tour in Glasgow, Scotland, Queen Bey gave her legion of fans a whole new godly experience by performing an entirely revamped set list, accompanied with a fresh crop of stellar new stage costumes. In a word: Flawless.

Like anything Beyoncé wears, curve-hugging glamour is front and centre in the new range of costumes created by Versace, Givenchy and Greek designer Vrettos Vrettakos.

Reel Artists Film Festival brings artist Kehinde Wiley and his soaring collaboration with Givenchy to Toronto

Did you know that Toronto is home to the world’s only art on film festival? Or that it is in its 11th year? Probably not. For the past few years, the Reel Artists Film Festival has blown us away with its A-list roster of films, talent and frankly, how underrated it is. This year, RAFF upped the ante yet again by premiering An Economy of Grace, a film about artist Kehinde Wiley and his unique brand of hood-meets-highbrow in pieces that portray African Americans in heroic poses.

At Wednesday night’s opening, the who’s who of Toronto’s art scene fêted the film, hobnobbing with the artist and taking in an onstage Q&A with him and Zoomer editor-in-chief Suzanne Boyd, which focused on the sociological impact his pieces have on his subjects as well as his work with Givenchy.

An Economy of Grace follows Wiley as he creates his first women-only painting series, casting them on the street in Harlem, dressing them in couture gowns and transforming them into large-scale re-imaginations of classic works of art. It also documents the artist’s collaboration with Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci, who created the dresses exclusively for the paintings. “When I thought about the absolute favourite of favourites or what stood for the best of haute couture, it was Givenchy,” said Wiley of the partnership. As current fashion plays so comfortably in the arena of high low, Wiley’s work touches on how once impossible that kind of combination would have been. In the days of great master portraiture (Wiley’s work often draws directly from Titian, Ingres, John Singer Sargent and Napoleon painter Jacques Louis David), subjects would have been those with money, wealth and social stature. They certainly would never have been of colour, something Wiley’s work flips on its head.

SAG Awards 2014: Our top 12 red carpet picks


SAG Awards 2014 Red Carpet

See the SAG Awards 2014 red carpet »

If there were one word to sum up the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, it would be colour. All of our favourite stars opted for a bright flash on the red carpet, with nary a head-to-toe black ensemble in sight. Even Jennifer Lawrence’s Christian Dior Haute Couture column dress was an array of shimmering multi-coloured sequins that changed hues as she moved. Black, it seems, is so 2013.

Also on the darker end of things, Jennifer Garner opted for a custom midnight blue Max Mara gown, in her favourite strapless mermaid silhouette. Dame Helen Mirren once again showed how to look seductive and age appropriate with a gorgeous black gown, lifted with gold foliage embroidery, from the Escada Pre-Fall 2014 collection. The wide sash belt, pop of colour on the lips, and black and gold chandelier earrings all worked together seamlessly. We bow down to the greatness that is Dame Mirren.

Bringing some high-voltage blues to the red carpet were frequent best-dressed list toppers Lupita Nyong’o and Amy Adams, both in killer dresses. Nyong’o’s Gucci column dress featured an embellished neckline that was as unusual as it was jaw dropping. Matched with pared down jewels from Fred Leighton, the actress went on to win Best Supporting Actress for 12 Years A Slave in stunning fashion. Adams’ Antonio Berardi gown was perfectly accented with a coral lip, an embellished waist, and complementary green and blue drop earrings.
