Beyoncé Stars in a September Issue (Surfbort Included)

The magazine world is really delivering this September. A star roster of supermodels covers Vogue, Rihanna looks wild on W, and now Beyoncé is dropping jaws with her CR Fashion Book spotlight. The glossy’s fifth issue comes out on September 4 – Queen Bey’s birthday, obviously – with a high-fashion spread devoted to the culture-dominating idol. And yes, it even includes a very chic Chanel surfboard. Excuse me, surfbort.

The front cover teases with a sequined mask covering Beyoncé’s face. On the opposite side she appears in all her glory, wearing a voluminous floral Yohji Yamamoto garment. Inside, the Carine Roitfeld–led magazine opted for a prose poem, written by the singer, instead of an article. The rest of the spread, shot by Pierre Debusschere, displays looks from Comme des Garçons, CÉLINE, and Saint Laurent.

Last month, critics debated whether or not Mrs. Carter is a fashion icon. I’m pretty sure this feature puts those questions to rest.

The 2014 Emmy Awards Best-Dressed List: Men’s Edition

Normally when it comes to red carpet fashion, all eyes are on the leading (and supporting!) ladies. Post–awards show, the Internet is abuzz with “What was she thinking?” and “Oh my, she really nailed it.” But now it’s time to pay the men of the Emmy Awards the respect they so deserve. In old-school formal outfits, a whole lot of blue, and some fresh takes on traditional tuxes, these guys dressed to impress. But who came out on top?

GQ cast its vote in a recent articleSeth Meyers in navy Valentino (pictured above) hit it out of the park – not only with his dapper tux and bow tie, but with his monologues too. Bryan Cranston in Ralph Lauren Black Label proved that when you channel Clark Gable, you win a boatload of Emmys.

And then there was Ryan Sweeting in a striking blue tuxedo jacket. “We really expected the night’s A-list TV actors to make bolder moves on the red carpet,” said Matt Sebra of GQ. “Not the tennis pro husband of that blond girl from the Big Bang Theory. But the actors didn’t, Sweeting did, and that’s why he makes the list.” (Hey Ryan, can I borrow your jacket? I promise I’ll give it back.)

The 2014 Emmy Awards Best-Dressed List

BY JACKIE NASSER, RUE LA LA FASHION DIRECTOR

 

Last night, the biggest stars of television partied in Los Angeles for the Emmys. Red was definitely the color of the night, with Claire Danes, January Jones, and Christina Hendricks all choosing the striking shade.

On stage, there were hilarious presenters (check out Jimmy Kimmel’s roasting of Matthew McConaughey here), a surprising kiss between Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston, and a Breaking Bad sweep. But the real winners of the night were on the red carpet. See who made my top-five list below.

Wild Child: Rihanna Stuns in W Magazine

“Bad girl” RiRi is no stranger to the exotic. Covering the September issue of W magazine, the singer and fashion icon channels her wild side to the extreme. The result? Nothing short of stunning.

Rocking a pierced septum, the singer wears tribal war paint, leather, suede, and lots of skin in the artistic spread. At one point, she’s even surrounded by a pack of wolves while wearing a fierce fur getup, complete with dramatic makeup and jewelry.

Whether she’s showing off her party animal ways or portraying an actual animal, Rihanna never ceases to amaze us.

Kids These Days: Teens Watch Saved by the Bell

Saved by the Bell saved my before-school mornings. The infamous 90s sitcom turns 25 this year, and to celebrate, The Fine Brothers invited a group of teens onto their YouTube series, filming reactions as the teen guests watched the Bayside High gang for the first time. Included in the bunch is outspoken Maisie Williams, who you may recognize as Arya Stark from Games of Thrones.

From Girls to Peter Pan, Allison Williams Just Doesn’t Want to Grow Up

Here’s a bit of pixie dust to sweeten your morning coffee: actress Allison Williams has been cast as Peter Pan in an NBC live musical production set to premiere on December 4. Sure, Neverland is a far cry from the Girls set in New York, but Allison has eagerly awaited this opportunity since childhood. She even donned a Peter Pan costume as a kid, and posted the proof on Instagram.

Of her upcoming role, she joked: “What could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?” On the other end of Allison’s sword, viewers will see the always charming (and sometimes wicked) Christopher Walken in the role of Captain Hook. While it will be tough to rival Walt Disney’s version of the imaginative story, I’ll definitely be tuning in to this star-studded update.

Charleston Style Essentials: The Stars of Southern Charm Spill

It doesn’t take much to get us totally hooked on a Bravo show. Needless to say, the network’s latest creation, Southern Charm, won us over completely. For the uninitiated, the series follows a handful of dapper bachelors navigating the society scene in Charleston, South Carolina. At the center of it all, and often providing the laughs, are the show’s two youngest gents, Craig Conover and Shep Rose. We caught up with them to chat about their newfound fashion fame and what you need to get by (other than charm) in sunny Charleston.

Tom Ford Calls Rihanna’s Instagram the Most Important Thing in Fashion

@Badgalriri’s #1 fan? Tom Ford – which is surprising, considering this is the same designer who used to ban cell phones from his super-exclusive runway shows.

But apparently, Gucci’s former leading man is starting to recognize the importance of social media in the fashion world. In an interview with Style.com, Tom claimed that celebrity Instagrams are now more important than media of the past. Said Tom:

Customers don’t care anymore about reviews or hard-copy publications. They care what picture Rihanna just Instagrammed while she’s naked in bed, what new shoes she has on, how she’s talking about them. That’s what they respond to.

Is he on to something? Only time will tell. But the real question here is whether Tom’s fandom is enough to make RiRi resurrect her Instagram. Because I for one miss her antics. (But could do without the bed shots.)
