BEYONCE: no thanks

We’re going out on a limb here, but this photo looks to us like it’s time for Beyonce to stand up to her mother and say “Please don’t make any more dresses for me!” Not that her mother isn’t a talented designer – it’s just that Beyonce had graduated to the world of luxury couture and THAT is not whipped up by your mother. Especially for the premier of your first starring movie. This baby blue scallopy confection wrapped up in a big bow that Beyonce wore to the LA premier of Dreamgirls looks like it might have come from a bridal shop in downtown Los Angeles. If mom didn’t make it, she should have vetoed it.

    Janet – your scouts have lead you astray. Beyonce’s, I think, gorgeous creation is by Eli Saab of Halle Berry Oscar gown fame…

    Again, her mother di not create this gown. It is by Eli Saab. He is famous for the gown Halle Berry wore when she won the Oscar.

    Don’t know the designer, typically hate wedding dresses, and don’t even like Beyonce, but I think the dress looks great, and Beyonce in it.

    It is in fact Eli Saab, but it does resemble one of her mother’s prom dress creations. It’s too much with the big Easter bow-it would be much better without it. Eli Saab is usually much more understated and less costumey.

    This gown cost $23,000 and I think she looks flawless. Her motehr has stopped dressing her over a year ago,

    Then she spent 22,000 too much. Price is not a measure of taste, or a promise of class. It looks like a teen prom dress from Dillard’s.

    The dress is no worse than typical Beynce Knowles attire.
    This girl is goofy and annoying.

    The dress would have been cute if she had lost the bow, cute the length (the train). Plus, one of her breast is about to go AWOL. Where were the garment’s foundations?

    no, no…it is a very publicized Eli Saab – fact.
    Please let’s all show the manners and dignity that hopefully we were raised with and conduct yourselves accordingly. Cease the negativity and cruel comments on a woman who has never wished you ill. We’re all just trying to by in this world the best we can.
    p.s. congratulations to Miss Knowles who is nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in “Dream Girls”

    I LOVE this look on Beyonce. This woman can practically wear anything and look stunning. I was awestruck when I saw this goregous dress.

    For the record that dress was not designed by her mother it was designed by “Elie Saab” So please get you facts straight before you comment on something that your not sure of.

    I don’t care if it’s Elie Saab or Ralph Lauren–it’s still horrible prom fashion. It could have been one of her mother’s creations.

    LOVE the dress with Beyonce in it. Did not like it when I saw it on the run way and I did not like the copy worn at Miss USA last summer. Eli Saab can do some strange designs, so I actually hated this dress all year but WHEN I saw it on Beyonce the other night; Perfection, adorable and just charmingly perfect for DREAMGIRLS Premier.
    This gown was perfect for a Movie Premier about the l960’s and that’s why Beyonce chose it. She’s adorable in it and YES, those are her real boobs.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
