Steppin It Hotter

A couple of weeks ago I got a very interesting email from a reader who was a bit pissed off that I’d said Beyonce has ‘no style’. She thoroughly disputed this statement and believes Beyonce looks ‘very well put together and sophisticated and frankly it’s a polished look’.

I don't dispute the fact that Beyonce is abso-friggin-lutely beautiful but her style...hmmm. But being the guerrilla researcher I am, (and D is too as she sent me about 20 links)…I took a deeper look in the B Style. While I wouldn’t want to raid her wardrobe as her style isn't really 'me', she does often turn out looking better than the media at large would have us believe. I think the red carpet frequently trips her up…that’s probably Mama Tina’s work.

I’ve put together a selection of images of B looking…surprisingly well put together. D this is for you!

She's steppin up hotter in these pics and I'm not going to fight it...(click on teh collage to see bigger pics)

I WANT that yellow dress.

How cute is the little beret? And yes I did eventually find a couple of red carpet looks I liked.

And this one, its pretty old, from 2005...but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this.

BUT remember fashion is what’s on offer…style, is a personal choice.

Not too shabby, I admit some of the stuff I personally wouldn't wear it, but other stuff she wears is pretty cute.

I personally think Beyonce has no style too and i don't thing style has anything to do with unnecessary show-off of flesh but hey!it is her style and if she feels good/comfortable in it, it's her choice.

I love Miss Bee....
Yeah I think she is lacking in personality but her style is imbeccable in my books....
She takes risks, she is bold, she knows what suits her body....She is a budding style icon.
She, Kerry, Washington and RiRi are my picks...always hella fab

Style is personal. She definitely has style. Everyone must not like what she wears for it to great style. Part of her appeal and style for me, is that she really doesn't care what anyone thinks of her style. She wears whatever she feels like and not what she feels people will like on her and it takes a truly stylish person to do that.

@aschlee...not too shabby indeed.

@asabe...Style is most definitely a very personal choice!

@Bella...She does know what suits her body. Kerry is probably more 'me' in terms of style. Riri is young and fun..lets see how she continues to grow.

@Naija...yep, confidence is a key element to style. Well said.

Her bottled personality and the barbie like clothes...she seems unreal now..like a doll
