If maintaining an existence free of all perils associated with a creole dominated society hasn’t harden your exterior already, The House of Agnes wants to ‘toughen’ up your look with a limited edition of both basic and deluxe (?!) temporary tattoos, People reports.
“We decided to invite Temptu to help us create custom body art for her to model with our fashions,” Tina Knowles, Deréon’s founder, designer and creative director, told WWD. “The resulting images were so strong that we realized consumers might want to re-create the tattoos themselves.”
The waterproof tattoos will be offered in Deréon’s signature fleur icon and in chains, spider designs, rocker bolts and jewel baubles-giving you a two to five-day edge. The $16-basic kit has eight tattoos and all the pieces needed to affix the designs on your skin, while the online-only deluxe kit will retail for $34 and includes a signed photo of Beyoncé as well as a chance to win a trip to New York.

The ’10 graduating class of Rupaul’s Drag University just got their life. The rest of us, not so much.
Lauryn Hill surprised the sea of hip hop fans at Governor’s Island on Saturday by bringing out guests Jay-Z, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Mary J. Blige, Chris Rock, and John Legend to say whaddup toward the end of her set at Rock The Bells. Too bad her performance left a lot to be desired. I mean, a lot.
Even more quality flicks here, here, and here.

The Blood of the Lamb narrowly escaped a car collision on Tuesday when the door of the Mercedes S Class she was stepping out of in front of Harolds department store was ripped off its hinges by a passing taxi in London. Yikes.
A source said: “It was terrifying to watch. It all happened so quickly, the taxi came out of nowhere. She seemed very shaken and was lucky to be alive. A couple of seconds difference and God knows what could have happened.”
Beyonce had set out for a romantic evening in London with her husband.
They were heading to the Japanese restaurant Zuma in the swanky Knightsbridge neighborhood for dinner when she decided she wanted to call at Harrods.
But the impromptu shopping trip never got started after the smash between the cabbie and the door of Beyonce’s posh silver S-Class. (source)
As much as I fear for my soul after publishing disparaging comments about members of the Killer Knowles Kompound I am happy that their prized yaki was not injured in the collision. All creoles may go to heaven but Grandma Agnez doesn’t want the company just yet.
Photographed with director Bill T. Jones, the prom queen and king rubbed shoulders with the homecoming queen and king of the school from across town at the post-theater reception of Fela! in New York City on Thursday night.
Produced by Jay-Z, Roots drummer Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson, Stephen Hendel, and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, the hit broadway musical about Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Anikulapo-Kuti received 11 Tony Award nominations earlier this month. Now that’s something worth clinking your champagne flutes to.
We may never be able to fully all experience the perks associated with being creole but I’m delighted to announce that we will be able to sleep like one if we so choose to.
Amazing grace. How sweet the sound. That saved a wretch like me.
Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles, partners in the House of Deréon fashion line, are getting into the home décor business.
Knowles family’s brands, “House of Deréon” and “Deréon” have expanded into bedding through a license with Arrow Home Fashions, which would also handle the distribution.
The new lines feature unusual prints, which will perfectly compliment the house interior. In addition, in many of the products are used techniques from the clothes fashion line. For example, the curtains in the collection are decorated with beads and metallic prints.
The collections retail prices are ranging from $149.99 to $199.99 for the higher end line “House of Deréon”, and $49.99 to $99.99 for the more inexpensive “Deréon” line.
100 extra dollars for a label to include House of but consist of the same lobster bisque boudoir bullshit? No thanks. My check is my check. And you can’t have it.
Before heading out to Nello’s for their anniversary dinner on Saturday night, Jay-Z and his prized yaki posed with the cast of the musical Chicago on Broadway at the Ambassador Theater. Former Destiny Child member Michelle Williams will continue to take some time away from the wig crypt, having extended her limited engagement with hit production through April 13.
The heat is still on Mathew’s testicles, kids.
Rumors that Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child together lit up the Web and gossip pages today based on a Media Take Out report that cites a “rock solid” source. The website claims the singer is “fine and resting now” and expected to “continue working through her pregnancy,” and that Jay-Z is “extremely happy to be having his first child” with his wife. However a publicist for Beyoncé from her record company, Sony, tells Rolling Stone that the report is simply “untrue.” [source]
In respect for Mashonda let me make this quick. The elements of earth, wind, fire, heart, freedom, yaki, and wind fans were in full effect last night as Alicia Keys performed at Madison Square Garden with a couple of her famous friends.
