Stella McCartney looked sleek and sophisticated as always in a vintage-feel butterfly top and grey skinny jeans
It’s a good time to be Beyonce right now. Fiercer and more on top of her fashion game than ever, everyone has been talking about her incredible headlining performance at Glastonbury on Sunday (if you didn’t see it look it up on Youtube RIGHT NOW – the woman was phenomenal).
Which is why yesterday’s launch party for her new album, 4, was a cool and eclectic mix of celebrities all there to mingle and celebrate their love of Miss B. From fashion designers to DJs and pop stars and beyond, everyone was there.
Representing the fashion world alongside Julien McDonald was Stella McCartney, looking sleek and graceful in a pretty and retro sequinned butterfly top with skinny jeans and a simple tan clutch. Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Parisian society girl, was also there looking stunning in an understated lace dress with her hair drawn back in a ballerina bun.
Less low-key was Paloma Faith in a theatrical feather-hat and a pair of the tiniest shorts we’ve ever seen, but are we surprised? No, not really. We love Paloma’s complete inability to dress appropriately for an event – it makes her a joy to write about. We have to say that she was flaunting some curves to rival Beyonce herself.
As for musical talent, there was a cool and diverse mix of different artists and styles present. We were surprised to see that Kills singer, Alisson Mosshart was there – who’d have known she was a Beyonce fan? (But then again, who isn’t?) Anyway, she looked cool in a low-key band shirt and black denim teamed with a slouchy denim-look shirt, an outfit that set off her shaggy black mane perfectly. Also there rocking a more laid-back look was up-and-coming Scottish DJ Yasmin, who’s already played Glasto this summer and is tipped to be a chart star, looking pretty and understated in some sawn-off dungarees and hot-pink wedges to set off her post-festival tan. We’re going to be watching this girl’s style from now on.
Meanwhile, pop’s divas were out in full force as well. Jade from the Sugababes was spotted at the launch looking amazing in an unbelievably short digital-printed cocktail dress with studded cut-out patterns. We have to find out where that dress is from! It worked perfectly against sexy evening makeup and some soft 70s-inspired waves.
And last but certainly not least, Alexandra Burke made an appearance wearing a simple knitted dress that gave a nod to the latest folk and 70s trends. A perfect summer outfit that rounds off today’s “Spotted” gallery perfectly. To see all the stars at Beyonce’s album launch party, check out the images above.
