Fashion Friday: The Beyonce Boutique

Screen-Shot-2013-05-22-at-10.17.54-AM Happy Fashion Friday! I have some fun news to share about one of my favorite beauty icons and one of the most revolutionary fashion platforms out there.

In celebration of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Rent the Runway has partnered with Beyonce to offer her fans the ultimate Queen B experience. The partnership, which kicked off earlier this year, has been refreshed for the season. To recognize The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’s return to the U.S. in December, Beyonce has updated the Beyonce Boutique with styles handpicked just for the holidays. Women everywhere will be able to access Beyoncé’s picks to attend the tour in style, or to simply channel Bey on any special night out.

“Making women feel confident and beautiful is something I’ve always been passionate about. That’s why joining forces with Rent the Runway was so organic. It’s more than just access to beautiful clothes; it’s about making women look and feel their best,” Beyonce said.

I am also very thrilled to announce that Beyonce’s Rent the Runway picks are almost identical to my Rent the Runway wish list. Since Mrs. Carter is like the queen of style, this makes me very happy.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the awesome service that RTR provides, they offer designer dresses for rent at reasonable rates, so you can get decked out for your special occasion at a fair price and still look like a million bucks. They even send you multiple sizes to ensure the best fit. Amazing! It’s wonderful for events like weddings and also a great service to keep in mind for the upcoming holiday party season.

Here are a few designer dresses that Bey and I both love:

Badgley Mischka Screen Siren Gown


When I daydream about what I would wear to an awards show, this is the dress that I’m wearing. I have this glamorous golden gown bookmarked in my favorites because I adore it, but I haven’t quite found the event that I’d need it for yet. One day though, I’m renting this baby!

Zac Posen Love at First Sight Dress


Zac Posen is the business. This crimson colored dress, from his Z Spoke line, is stunningly simple yet elegant in the best way.

Vera Wang Take the Throne Gown


Ugh, I love the mermaid silhouette so much! I was sold on the flattering fit, but the stunning color combination on this navy damask dress makes it swoon-worthy too.

Nicole Miller Pretty Woman Dress


This sexy lace dress could be worn to a high class event or even out on the town for date night. It’s stunning and versatile. It’s M&M and Beyonce approved!
