Fashion and time are probably the two things that never stop happening. Isn´t it crazy? A few weeks ago, we were all excited about the October Issue from our favorite magazines, and now it´s time to say “Hello!” to the November Issue. And could we have chosen a better cover to start with? We don´t think so.
Vanity Fair says “welcome” to the 11th month of the year with a living legend: MR. JAY Z. Styled in a white black tuxedo, the rapper looks simply amazing. Photographed by Mario Testino, Jay Z talks about his most recent album, how he used to sell drugs and the two reasons of his entire happiness: Ms. Beyonce and baby fashionista, Blue Ivy.
Christmas with Mr. Carter?! Jay-Z‘s latest collaboration is a holiday campaign, called “A New York Holiday” for the infamous Barneys holiday gallery space! Barneys typically worked with big names each year – with Lady Gaga making reigns two years ago and Disney just last year.
“If you close your eyes and think about who best represents New York and stands for the city, you can’t help but think about Shawn Carter,” Barneys CEO Mark Lee told WWD.
Jay-Z comments, “Everything that encompasses ‘A New York Holiday’ . . . represents a perfect example of a unique and groundbreaking collaboration that I hope demonstrates how inspiring New York has been to me.”
The collaboration will also include a limited edition collection designed by Jay-Z, including watches and a humidor, along with items from Balenciaga, Lanvin, Balmain, Proenza Schouler, and Rick Owens.
The collection will be available on November 20. A quarter of all proceeds will go to the Shawn Carter Foundation.

That beat drops as he talking about blowing a stack with some talk about the trap.
He doesn’t pop molly; he rocks Tom Ford.
Who else could this person be? Of course, it’s Jay Z.
(In case you haven’t heard, he also took that dash out of his name)
He’s making some serious moves, but then again, when is he not?
HOV has always been known to make alot of noise for his home place of New York.
Word on the road has been rumoring that he’s in process of collaborating with Barneys.
It makes total sense because Jay has always been about a lavish life and business so it
seems right for him to partake in some trapping with a high-end luxury retailer like Barneys.
There is no official word that there is a deal on lock, but you know Jay!
He can come outta nowhere and serve us up with holy grails – it’s safe to say that if they come together, Barneys and Jay will definitely pack some fire for the men’s fashion industry (assuming he’s only doing men’s fashion).
Stay posted on the official word!

We’re treated with other amazing vocals like The Xx, Gotye, Jack White, and Sia who are all big names to an ensemble of a perfect soundtrack album.
Be sure to check out the rest of the album here! T-minus 2 days till the premiere! EXCITED yet?!
As if her worldwide tour and summer campaign for H&M wasn’t enough, Beyoncé’s new Pepsi commercial, which is part of her 50 million dollar contract with the company, has finally debuted. Titled “Mirrors,” the ad will be released in 70 countries and is projected to reach 1 billion viewers. Lucky enough for the world, this commercial has a whole lot of Beyoncé to go around.
And I mean literally. The commercial takes place in a dance studio where Beyoncé gets confronted by self’s from past iconic music videos—everything from “Crazy Love,” “Single Ladies,” and “Bootylicious.” Queen Bey proves that not only is she a whole lot of woman (yes, that was a Foxy Cleopatra reference), but she’s a whole lot of Beyoncé as well. And while this fun journey down memory lane is occurring, Beyoncé’s latest track “Grown Woman,” plays… definitely giving us a huge teaser for this soon-to-be hit.
The combination of fierce dance moves and a playful concept has us thinking that Pepsi knocked it out of the park. How do you feel about Beyoncé’s newest commercial?

The rumors were all true, The beautiful and multi-talented entrepreneur Beyoncé graces the cover of VOGUE‘s March issue wearing none other than Givenchy, and definitely trumps the utter failure which was her last Vogue cover. The singer who recently marked a career milestone by headlining this years Superbowl halftime show, stuns on the cover of the fashion bible looking glossier than ever!
Vogue’s cover-line reads “Queen B! Beyoncé Rules The World”. Which as of late and in the near future news, she definitely is. From performing at the bowl, to her scandalous GQ cover, a recent grammy win, a new HBO documentary, and an album on the way, Queen B is living up to her well deserved title.
Without a question, Beyonce is ruling the world and showing no signs of slowing down!
Beyonce’s new HBO Documentary premieres on February 16, 2013 on the subscription network channel (find out where and what time to watch in your area here). The talented performer will reveal intimate details about her personal life including her much talked about pregnancy with newborn daughter Blue Ivy Carter. The singer who is known for being quite the recluse when it comes to here personal life, lives a precociously private life with beaux Jay Z, so an insight to this life will be an intriguing watch non the less.
It seems as though after the mediocre reception of Bey’s last LP ’4′, her team and record label are pulling out all the stops to see the budding icon pull in the numbers of previous albums such as ‘I am… Sasha Fierce and are leaving no promo stone unturned.
