Beyonce - "InStyle" November 2008

Beyonce -

Beyonce is looking fa-ierce as the November 2008 cover girl for InStyle magazine. Here are some interview snippets:

On her style icons: “Charlize Theron is always beautiful and feminine. I love her couture looks and dramatic silhouette. Halle Berry is elegant and sophisticated. I love that in the seventies Cher and Diana Ross looked like superstars and never played it safe. When they were onstage, they gave you drama—and I love drama.”

On her designer obsessions: “Alexander McQueen and Jean Paul Gaultier are two designers I love right now. Their clothes are feminine, sexy and modern. I just went to the Giuseppe Zanotti showroom, and he had the most spectacular shoes. It was like being in a candy store—I was obsessed with every shoe! Right now, I love anything with a high platform.”

    Why does she look white? Is it the airbrushing?

  • anono

    I rarely ever like anything Beyonce wears, I dislike the way she dresses, everything she wears is always too-too much. Even on this cover, that big fugly neckline AND the big earrings AND a busy print, it’s just too much. She’s not nearly as attractive as she thinks she is (and as the fashion mags like us to think she is).

  • test


  • tawi-tawi

    she is so uninterestingly looking. no sparkle. looks like a plastic powdered doll.

  • Ants

    Beyonce is amazing!

  • Gen

    Beyonce is back. She looks good.

  • Justin

    To “anono” That fugly necklace is probably worth more than you.

  • Mars

    I can’t wait for her new album to come out. She looks great in these pictures.

  • FAN

    “Anono” you are an idiot.
    If all those fashions weren’t the style of the moment they wouldn’t be on the cover of InStyle and they certainly wouldn’t be on Beyonce. Who the heck are you to say those patterns are too much or too busy. You probably wear tshirts and jeans (only)….

  • enoughalready

    She looks great!!

    Why is it people with talent get less and people who dont have talent get more these days?

    This has been the season for STUDIO artist and when the ones that can actually sing, they have trouble and we know they can sing.

    Instead of having good music that can be served to you live we are in a time zone where we prefer shallow, cute non-singing girls. Why?

  • mia

    she’s gotten stale now…there’s nomore sparkle in my eye

  • anono

    Just because the necklace is expensive doesn’t mean anything, it’s still fugly. Everything she wears is fug;y I find (and her House of Dereon stuff is fugly too, the worse of all the star’s who have lines) This woman has never met a large accessory that she doesn’t like, she doe not know the meaning of subtle beauty. She thinks wearing pale lipstick and her plain straight hair is enough subtle, but everything she wears is just too-too much if you ask me. She can’t even wear jeans or a bathing suit without piling on the godawful accessories (expensive or not) with it.

    I have never liked B’s sense of style. Her clothing line is sh#teous. Poor Beyonce she hates to bring the inner black in her, she loves wearing those fake blond wigs and light lipstick. She should take a cue from Halle Berry, you don’t see Halle trying to be white although her mother is white. Beyonce is pure negro with maybe some caucasion genes from way back when. She needs to embrace her culture and not try to be more white – or that inbetween Hispanic woman.

  • Tammy

    I’m really liking this new direction that Beyonce is working for the new album. She is a beautiful woman. She looks best when she lets her natural beauty show. I will be picking up this article.

  • lol

    i lovr her style and beauty and music, of course

  • enoughalready

    People asked for change and growth and she gives it, now they want the old Beyonce, cant please everyone I guess…

  • Dooder city

    Oh my god, how airbrushed is she?
    Beyonce reminds me of a wet towel.

  • He-who-shall-not-be-named

    I think beyonce’s look is getting boring. She swears by her long weaves! She kept us guessing with her ferocious styles at the pinnacle of her solo career back in 2002. The showbiz arena is getting too competitve for this..

  • eta wicks

    she is one amazing young woman, i am a 63 year old fan -straight woman i am also fine for my age

  • grow up people…


  • Da brush

    Some morons abused of Photoshop on her…

  • John

    To “Anon”
    You say she always overdoes it well. Maybe you should have a look at her pictures for Essence magazine or her commerical for True star.
    Haters keep hating. You are the reasons she will always be on top. Whether she is talked about positively or negatively it is those comments that keep her in the limelight. So, if you didn’t care why do you keep talking.
    Your idea of “fugly” is basically anything that goes against the grain or ordinary. Can we say “Closed minded”

  • Laurel

    So sick of Beyonce. It seems like all she wants is to become a bigger Star.

  • brit…shit

    i love her,but i think she is now boring

  • Padma

    I don’t hate her, her music is actually quite good, BUT she has no style (especially on stage!) and she seems to be so boring. I never could watch an entire interview with her, just because she’s dull, since she always tries to be “perfect” and “flawless”. She has no edge.

  • Toots

    come on ,people beyonce is not that white in the pic. Besides she’s light skinned and with those homongous spotlights used during photoshoots its understandable that she will come out looking a bit lighter. Anyway why is that an issue??

    In general yes, she ‘s getting a bit tired but she seems to have a nice enough personality so let her BEE.

  • cutie

    She’s beautiful :-)

  • Shaffir

    the girl is FIERCE.

    always amazing!

  • lalalove

    I agree with #12. That’s a great observation.
    She’s nonetheless a beautiful woman.

  • sara

    Beyonce is amazing and everyone knows it !! it’s not rocket science, you might not like her but definitley know she is a true legend.
    I’m sure buying her music…

  • Micky

    LOVE Beyonce’… She looks FAB on the cover of InStyle… She definitely is IN STYLE =)

  • Tiffany

    Chicquita, boy what an ignorant ass you are. i feel sorry for you.
