4 September, 2014 All, Top News No comments

Happy Bey-Day! Our #ForeverBae, Beyoncé is celebrating 33 years of being flawless today. Queen Bey has certainly had a #blessed year, as she graced the cover for TIME’s 100 Most Influential People issue, earned the No. 1 spot on the Forbes Celebrity 100 List, and shattered record sales with her visual album, Beyoncé, featuring her platinum-selling single “Drunk in Love.” The hit songstress also happens to be the third-most honored woman in Grammy Award history, having won a total of 17 awards.

In true diva fashion, the superstar is celebrating her birthday in Corsica enjoying some fun in the sun with hubby Jay-Z and baby Blue Ivy. The vacation is well deserved, as J+B recently wrapped up the US leg of their massive On the Run Tour, and will be performing the final shows of their tour in Paris on September 12 and 13.

In honor of Queen Bey’s birthday, here is a #ThrowbackThursday to some of her fiercest editorial looks thus far!

He helped her with her album, now she is offering her lovely vocals for his last track. A few weeks ago Producer BOOTS announced his new project titled WinterSpringSummerFall with which he included a picture of the track list. Aside the name of the last track it read (feat. B******). We had suspicions that it might be the one and only Beyonce and our instincts did not lead us astray. The Beyonce and Boots collaboration is one that we are all thankful for. After the release of Beyonce’s visual album, curiosity about the identity of the name that appeared all over the credits remained. BOOTS latest mixtape will feature the song “Dreams” as its last track. Take a listen to BOOT’s new song “Dreams.”

Listen to more of BOOT’S music on SoundCloud.

JAY Z x VANITY FAIR

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.

Jay-Z x Barneys Holiday Campaign

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.

Can NY handle Jay Z and Barneys together?

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!
