Last night was a huge burst of knowledge and information into the world that came tumbling out by a simple gesture made by the Queen Bee- Beyonce!

She took to the stage performing a mega watt performance that outshone Gaga dressed in drag as a man.


The rumours and speculation that had continued to dominate throughout the course of the singers career has finally been confirmed as the ex Destiny’s Child star unbuttoned her D&G jacket to reveal a bump!

That’s right! Beyonce is Pregnant and by the size of the bump she is already a bit of the way along.

She revealed the bump in a typical dramatic steal-the-show theatrical way with Bey randomly dropping the mic turning to the side to strike a pose and rubbing the growing stomach-till she finally burst out laughing- In True Diva style

She was interviewed by Pierce Morgan a few weeks back and he questioned her about when she would potentially taking a break to have a child and she responded with a simple “only God knows” but clearly she knew as well!

She dazzled the stage in a striking purple jacket and black pant trousers which can be seen to have been taken from the collection of D&G 2011 Menswear so it was not only Gaga that went for the androgynous look that night!

Beyonce will turn 30 in September so clearly everything has been calculated to the nearest date and she will be a proud mum in 7 months time in time for a nice Spring Baby!

Jay-z and Beyonce have been married for 3 years and this will be the couples first baby.

For the past few months us Londoners have been inundated with enormous amounts of striking imagery with regards to the new American fashion brand Forever 21– which launched on Oxford Street today.

The store is fronted by one cool mama Bip Ling aka London DJ and Fashionite blogger.

The store is opposing discount store Primark and can be reached by jumping on the Jubliee line to hip and trendy Bond Street.

The opening today proved to be pretty popular I attended and was greeted by happy staff, funky music and a huge selection of cool chic outfits at mega effective pricing. Got to love it on a Wednesday!

It really gives Primark a run for their money- If your like me you may have noticed the pricing of Primarks clothing have been increasing steadily- well maybe some good old fashion competition will sort that out!

The store is pretty cool- focusing on young fashion and has the decor to match-

Loving the displays!

Forever 21 has done incredibly well in America rivaling the online fashion store Asos.com and other discount retailers and came about at the perfect time – during a recession!

Followers to the brand have been the Kardashians, Kristen Stewart and Blake Lively so I can imagine its going to do a fantastic job out here!

The dress does not look to great on the headless model! but on Clemence it looks fab, the contrast of the simple black belt really takes the dress into another element. Retailing at £1,800 from many boutiques or from Here.



Other cast members also held their ground at the premier included Bonnie Write, who plays Ginny Weasley in the film. She arrived in a coral peach dress by Miu Miu, a long-sleeved peach ruffled blouse and a floor length silky fitted skirt. Her earrings by Wright and Teague earrings were both eye catching and complimented the outfit well.

She is known for her love of Miu Miu and her traditional and refined appearance on the red carpet this kept in her normal boundaries and comforts in this choice.bonnie-write


Satin not being an easy outfit to wear due to its crumple ability (as shown!) and easy sweat patch creations! makes this not an easy outfit to wear but she pulls it off!

Of course, the ultimate stunner that stole the show was Emma Watson, she arrived in a fabulous gown that has made articles and blog pages go made on the Internet world. To be fair, rightly so!

The larger than life gown took center stage on the red carpet whilst she stopped to sign autographs and take photographs.

The Oscar De la Renta ballgown made from tulle sleeveless gown with embroidery bodice and ruffled layered skirt from the latest 2011 autumn collection.

With traditional London weather even celebrities cannot guess the weather, so she reemerged with her snow white Antionio Berardi jacket, but its sharp cut elegantly demonstrated her lovely svelte figure.
