Beyonce Obsessed

At the screening for Obsessed Beyoncé wore a brave Balmain sequinned dress - on paper, fabulous but in reality, quite divisive. I love Balmain and I love bodycon, but I'm not 100% sure this is working for her. I think it's just that bit too tight on her curves and there is a vile floor-length train (I chose this image because it shows the least of it) which sends the dress over the edge into can-she-pull-that-off territory?


I love the vintage 80s disco prom dress frill hem though and anything with black sequins is half way there for me... Brave girl! Balmain is becoming a fast firm favourite with the A-listers after going from strength to strength over the last few collections, especially at the moment whilst everyone's shoulder-obsessed and raving about the label's bold futuristic statement pieces.


I noticed earlier this month Beyonce wore Balmain's stunning crystal-embellished military canvas jacket from the Spring 2009 collection out for dinner in New York. Oh, to have £6k to spend on a jacket...

Yeah, too tight and anything with a train, unless walking down the aisle, is just wrong.

Wrongalicious not bootylicious...
