Beyoncé Talks Perfectionism, Ivy Park and More in ELLE


Hate it or love it, Beyoncé‘s blowing the dust off of her crown and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it.

With last week bringing the first look at her Ivy Park activewear brand and the unveiling of her US and UK ELLE magazine covers, Monday morning gives us a sort of rewind as we see that she’s covered Sweden, France, Québec, and the Netherlands versions of the tasteful magazine as well.

Beyoncé Covers Elle Magazine US & UK


Beyoncé season is quickly approaching and if you weren’t ready for what it had to offer, you surely better get prepared.

While earlier today saw the powerhouse release the first of (hopefully) many promotional commercials for her “Ivy Park” active wear brand, brought to us by Topshop, Mrs. Carter – dressed in “Ivy Park” attire, of course – has now unveiled not one, but two covers of ELLE magazine.

Gracing the covers and pages of both ELLE‘s US and UK versions, Bey looks as flawless as can be as she discussed the Ivy Park line, feminism, and “The Power of Beyoncé”. Whether you’re an official member of the Beyhive or just a person who dabbles in her sound every now and again, there’s no denying the impact Beyoncé has had on the world since she stepped in the game almost two decades ago.

We hope you’re ready for the whirlwind that is Beyoncé because we’re sure it’s going to be one heck of a touchdown!

Take a look at the UK cover of ELLE below!

Rihanna British Vogue

Rihanna is hitting ’em hard with that ‘work’ on her second British Vogue cover, which showcases her new collaboration with famous footwear designer Manolo Blahnik. The 28-year-old fashion icon sports stunning pieces from the denim-driven collection including a pair of thigh-high crystal-embellished boots, which she doesn’t recommend wearing on a date.

“Guuurrrl! Those boots are dangerous!” RiRi tells the magazine. “If you’re trying to get back home to your bed, don’t wear them boots! You will get kidnapped in those boots, those boots are trouble.”

The singer, who also dons a white diamond-studded cowboy hat on the cover, credits her mother for inspiring her style. “Oh my goodness, my mother — she is a woman’s woman,” she says. “I was obsessed with everything she did then, everything she wore, her scent, her shoes and her scarves… That was the glamour I wanted to be part of.”

According to WWD, Rihanna x Manolo Blahnik will debut May 5. The limited-edition capsule collection, inspired by Rihanna’s hand tattoos, includes a selection of sandals, pumps, and boots. Prices range from $767 to $3,483.

For those who can’t afford the pricey footwear, the cover girl also recently launched a more affordable workout sneaker for PUMA called “The Trainer.”
