obsessions, style icons, pre super star style,  off camera style and 

est look.

Must-Have Accessory

"I'm not dressed unless I have earrings on, like big hoops. I've always worn big earrings. Off the red carpet, I don't really feel comfortable with many rings and bracelets on. I love earrings though."

Designer Obsessions

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."

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."

Pre-Superstar Style101508_beyonce5_400x400

"Growing up, I
was a tomboy. I refused to carry a purse and wouldn't wear a dress.
That was the eighties and it was all about the hip-hop influence—baggy jeans
and big shirts. [Her mother, Tina Knowles] hated it! But then I started
singing and ended up watching all of the footage of the Supremes and Tina Turner. And I thought to myself, 'They're so beautiful. I want to be like them.'"

Off-Camera Style

"I'm a lot more conservative in my personal life. But even when I'm dressed down, I wear a nice shirt, 
nice jeans and stilettos.
Even when I go on vacation, where no one's going to see me, I enjoy
picking out new clothes, bathing suits and accessories. I do it for
myself because I enjoy fashion. It makes me feel like me."

Latest Look

"I was going to do the shorter hair [for her new album] that I had when I performed with Tina Turner at the Grammys earlier this year, which I loved. But I've decided to wear my hair straight instead. I've had so many different hairstyles,
and I don't want this project to be about my hair. With my makeup, I
was doing a lot of liquid liner before. Now I'm into a gold smoky eye and natural-tone lip."
