Her stylist Mel Ottenberg described her tour wardrobe as “Hood Glamour: boys’ thug clothes mixed with diamonds and pulled-together hair and makeup.” (Vogue) Obviously this new look is going to continue beyond the stage.

Last night Rihanna ended her #777 Tour in New York City and held a meet and greet for fans at the Best Buy Theater. She wore a Damir Doma leather shirt and shorts from the Spring/Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Collection and paired the ensemble with a pair of Manolo Blahnik Ankle Strap Pumps. Here is a list of some of the accessories she wore Sydney Evan White Gold & Diamond Love RingAmy Zerner Serpent Ring, Meredith Kahn Ring, and black Skingraft Leather Tuque hat. My fav jewelery piece that she wore is this Extremely rare vintage Chanel gun motif choker necklace. Dopeness indeed!

Beyoncé Gets Political Through Fashion

Solo on how her wardrobe and decor differ: “I had a moment when I looked at my closet and I was like, ‘Whoa, I really don’t have any basics.’ And with my house, I wanted to find a balance of having great colors and patterns but also a really livable, warm, serene space.”

Beyoncé Wears Pyjama Loung Pants That Will Definitely Start A Conversation

make a gifBeyoncé was spotted in NYC furniture shopping at Domus Design Collection with non other than Blue Ivy. What caught my attention was her Clements Ribeiro Joggers princh-stretch cotton pants. This kooky artwork “depicting modernist nudes in pools of black ink” on the pants was created by Jacques Oost’s. The unflattering pics on the pants alone are sure to start a conversation. I would rock these pants but I would not pair them with the same pieces that she wore.
