The birthday girl for September 4 is Beyoncé Knowles.
Beyoncé is the queen of overkill when it comes to her music. Why just sing a song when you can wake the dead instead? Anyway, she’s also prone to showing up to public events completely overstyled. Just a couple of weeks ago, however, Beyoncé had what might be the defining red carpet moment of her career so far. Showing up to the MTV VMAs in a Lanvin dress that not only flattered her figure but also made no attempt to conceal her pregnancy, the singer was lauded by the fashion press the next day.
Like any Virgo, she looks great in a simple dress, a pair of shoes, a little jewelry and not much else. The singularity of the primary garment itself — the dress, in this case — should be exceptional enough to carry the look.
I wonder if she’ll learn her lesson after reading the best reviews she’s ever received? Probably not. It’ll only be a matter of time before she’s scaring me with both her caterwauling and her overwrought wardrobe.
