The birthday girl for January 4 is Tina Knowles.
Knowles is the designer for House of Deréon, a line founded by her and her daughter, Beyoncé Knowles. In some respects, the line does represent signature Capricorn style: it’s body conscious and it includes a lot of black. However, it’s a little too revealing to genuinely represent another cornerstone of Capricorn style: appropriateness.
Capricorns know time like no one else does. They also possess an innate understanding of appropriateness, and they understand that there’s a right time and a wrong time to wear a particular outfit. For that reason, I personally cited “24/7 Cocktail Dressing” as the worst trend of the previous decade on my other blog. Unless you’re a hooker in Las Vegas, wearing a short, sparkly bandage dress every moment of every day is entirely inappropriate.
Knowles has turned House of Deréon into a second-rate bebe, even while her daughter is knocking the socks off her critics in outfits like this one. Between the two women — a Capricorn and a Virgo — a more tasteful collaboration shouldn’t be such a stretch of the imagination. It’s in the stars!
