Celebrity Style: Beyonce Knowles Wears Black Sequined Pucci Dress

3 May Singer-Beyonce-Pucci-dress-Met-Gala-100394

Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z have found themselves getting booed on the red carpet. The “Halo” singer and her music mogul husband attended this year’s Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday night, May 2, and upset photographers when they failed to pose for pictures.

Reporting the incident was The Cut. The New York Fashion Magazine’s fashion blog first tweeted, “OMG Beyonce and Jay-Z are being BOOED at the #MetGala for not posing for pictures! Yes, boo!” In another tweet, it was explained, “Beyonce’s Pucci dress was so tight she could barely walk up the stairs as she failed to stop for the photographers. #MetGala”.

The 29-year-old wore an extremely form-fitting Pucci gown which had gold embroidery and jet paillettes to the event held to celebrate the Wednesday (May 4) opening of the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibition. USA Today Style, additionally, posted a video of the booing along with a caption that read, “This carpet seems crazier than the Oscars! Who boos Beyonce??”

Beyonce and her husband Jigga apparently weren’t the only one feeling the wrath of the photographers. The photogs reportedly directed their agitation toward her younger sister Solange Knowles as well. “After the photogs loudly booed Beyonce for not posing, Solange arrived and they shouted, ‘Don’t shoot her. She can tell her sister.’#MetGala,” tweeted The Cut.

Royal Wedding: Kate And Pippa Middletons Second Dress Of The Evening

Kate Middleton (now officially Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) changed into another dress by McQueen’s Sarah Burton for the post-wedding evening party at Buckingham Palace. Dress No. 2 is strapless, made of plain satin gazar, and nipped at the waist with a diamante embroidered band. Perhaps chilly, Kate’s also wearing a white angora bolero cardigan, which looks poised to shed white fluff all over William’s crisp black tux.

Hosted by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the party includes 300 guests and reportedly has an informal “disco” theme. A highlight of the evening will undoubtedly be Prince Harry’s toast to the couple, which is expected to be scandalous (and hopefully booze-fueled). The couple will spend their first night together as newlyweds in the palace. The Queen, meanwhile, has departed for a private weekend at an undisclosed location so that the youngsters can be as rowdy as they please.

Summary: For her wedding reception, Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, debuted her second dress and it was, obviously, stunning. She certainly kept Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen busy – Burton designed the second dress as well as the dress for the ceremony.

As she left Prince Charles’ home, Clarence House, on her way to Buckingham Palace for the big party, she showed off the dress, which complemented the ceremony dress but was more subdued. A sleek, strapless dress with a diamante detail at the waist, the dress was paired with an angora bolero jacket.

Kate’s sister Pippa also stepped out in her second dress, an emerald gown with jeweled detail that she accessorized with a beaded clutch.

Sarah Burton Designs Royal Wedding Dress For Kate Middleton

29 Apr Sarah-Burton-Kate-Middletons-Dress-Designer-293828


The woman behind the royal wedding dress that the whole world is talking about has finally been revealed.

Sarah Burton, the creative director for the legendary, recently deceased Alexander McQueen, has the fashion world buzzing with the dazzling, fitted, long-sleeved lace gown she designed for Kate Middleton.

Burton, 36, has an impressive – and diverse – roster of former clients, including Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett and Bjork.

But before she rose to fame, Burton was born and raised in Manchester with four siblings and attended Manchester Polytechnic, where she earned an art foundation diploma, according to the Telegraph.

She then headed to London, studying print fashion at Central St. Martins – where McQueen went as well. She worked as an intern for McQueen during her third year there and graduated in 1997.

Burton stayed with the company and quickly become McQueen’s protégé, working alongside him until his tragic suicide in 2010. She was appointed creative director shortly after.

In September, she presented her first womenswear collection in Paris, which critics said was not as dramatic as McQueen’s work but still bold enough to make a statement.

Middleton reportedly became aware of the designer years ago when she saw a wedding dress Burton designed for Sara Buys, a fashion journalist who married Tom Parker Bowles, the son of Prince Charles’ wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

The British tabloids have been speculating for months that Burton had been chosen to design the dress for the now-Duchess of Cambridge.

Burton quickly dismissed the rumors, telling Vogue UK in March that “I am not doing it.”

But the denial seems to have been part of a detailed strategy to maintain secrecy.

Burton’s latest creation elicited oohs and aahs from wowed fans.

“Oh it’s gorgeous!” exclaimed Yvonne Ryland, of Yorkshire, England, who now lives in Spain. “It is absolutely beautiful. It is so slimming and fits her perfectly. “

Pippa Middleton also looks stunning in a Sarah Burton design.

Preview Photos: Kate Middleton’s Dress Designed By Alexander Mcqueen

29 Apr Royal-Wedding-Party-700450


Catherine Middleton arrives to attend the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011 in London, England. The marriage of the second in line to the British throne is to be led by the Archbishop of Canterbury and will be attended by 1900 guests, including foreign Royal family members and heads of state. Thousands of well-wishers from around the world have also flocked to London to witness the spectacle and pageantry of the Royal Wedding.


Kate Middleton paid a poignant tribute to tragic fashion designer Alexander Mcqueen at her wedding to Prince William by walking down the aisle wearing a dress created by his successor.

Speculation about who would be designing Middleton’s wedding dress has been rife every since the royal couple announced their engagement last year (10).

Middleton put the rumours to rest on Friday (29Apr11) by appearing in a stunning white gown designed by Sarah Burton, who took over as creative director of the Alexander MCQueen label after the famed couturier’s suicide last February (10).

The choice came as a surprise because a representative for the design house previously denied any involvement in Britain’s royal wedding.

The brunette beauty’s gown featured long, lace sleeves and a bodice, with a full skirt of white satin and an extensive train. Aside from the French Chantilly lace, all of the fabrics used in the creation of the dress were sourced from Britain.

Middleton wore a full veil, made of ivory silk tulle, held in place by the ‘halo’ tiara, which was made by famed jewellers Cartier in 1936. The glittering diamond piece was purchased by King George VI three weeks before he succeeded his brother Edward Viii.

The king bought the tiara for his wife Queen Elizabeth, the late The Queen Mother, who passed it on to her daughter, Queen Elizabeth II on her 18th birthday.

Middleton also wore diamond earrings in the shape of oak leaves, inspired by the Middleton family’s new coat of arms – a wedding gift from her parents. She carried a bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth, with the flowers symbolising the return of happiness, gallantry and constancy of love.
