Beyoncé Is Now the Queen of All Celebrities

-------

"On The Run Tour: Beyonce And Jay-Z" - Opening Night In Miami GardensBeyoncé really does run the world—at least according to Forbes. Queen Bey took the No. 1 spot on the magazine’s annual Celebrity 100 list, earning a reported $115 million in 2014. Who else made the top 10? LeBron James (#2), Oprah (who topped the list last year, but dropped to #4), Rihanna (#8), and Katy Perry (#9). Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z, came in at No. 6, earning less than half of Beyoncé’s salary—though his $60 million doesn’t exactly seem paltry. The news arrives just in time for Bey and Jay’s Diesel-fueled On the Run tour.

Of the top twenty-five earners, Forbes notes that thirteen are musicians. The likes of Dr. Dre, Bruno Mars, Miley Cyrus, and Taylor Swift have greatly increased their earning potential in recent years due to strong social media presences. #$$$.

Insta-Gratification

-------

In the age of Instagram, all it takes is a smartphone to achieve a photo finish, be it filtered or #nofilter-ed. That’s why Style.com’s social media editor, Rachel Walgrove, is rounding up our favorite snaps and bringing them into focus. See below for today’s top shots.

Friday, January 31

In celebration of its #ArtMatters window installation, Bergdorf Goodman has surrendered its account to the visual masters behind the #BGWindows.

It’s hard to pick just one. Riccardo Tisci went on a sharing spree, uploading new photos of Erykah Badu, the face of Givenchy’s Spring ’14 ads.

If our flooded e-mail inboxes weren’t an indication, this photo from the MBFW account reminds us that fashion week is just a few days away.

Cheers to the weekend. Make this one count.

And let us say, Amen. Continue Reading “Insta-Gratification” »

Girls’ Night Out

-------

“Every woman in the fashion business has a girl crush on DVF,” Tina Brown said of her co-host Friday night at the United Nations, where she and the designer were holding the third annual DVF Awards honoring extraordinary women. “I even thought I would rename myself Tina von Brown for a while,” she said jokingly to the audience.

But the night was not about DVF or Brown (though both are extraordinary), so Brown turned the mic over to the award presenters, including actresses Debra Winger and Jessica Alba, who were handing off the Anh Duong–designed statues to the likes of Oprah and Jaycee Dugard. “I think there’s a lot of social movements out there, but very few are effective,” Alba, who was presenting to Rio-based “grafiteira” Pamela Castro, told Style.com before the ceremony got started. “She [Castro] has found a way to really touch people. She educates women through her art—it’s very sexy and provocative, but also heartbreaking.”

The evening came to a grand crescendo when Oprah took the stage. “No matter how many margaritas I’ve had, I always make to at least one knee to pray every single day,” she told the audience, attributing her great philanthropic work to higher powers. “Everything that comes from me comes from something that’s bigger than me.” Before handing the inspiration award to Dugard, she said, “When I saw Jaycee’s interview with Diane Sawyer, I kept thinking of myself at 11 years old, on the way to school, and abducted, snatched, taken, and held prisoner for 18 years. Just take that in for a moment.” By the time Oprah closed out her speech, a good portion of the audience was in tears. “It’s my honor tonight to present the inspiration award, and I don’t even know if inspiration is a big enough word to encompass what Jaycee means to me and so many other victims of sexual violence, but she is exceptional as a woman and as a human being.”

The Doors Of Studio 54 Reopen, Grace Kelly The Barbie, Oprah And Ralph Lauren Join Forces Again, And More…

-------

The wild nights at Studio 54 are long over, but a new show hosted by Marc Benecke, who manned the door, and Myra Scheer, a former assistant to Steve Rubell, will bring the club to life once more. The show, which makes its debut Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s Channel 15, will host guests who frequented Studio 54, including Carolina and Reinaldo Herrera, Pat Cleveland, and Stephen Burrows.

Barbie is paying tribute to Hollywood starlet-turned-princess Grace Kelly with three collectible dolls as part of the Barbie Collector series. The dolls come with some of Kelly’s most iconic looks, including the blue gown she wore in Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief, her wedding dress, and a floral black dress she wore at the Cannes Film Festival in 1955.

The fashion world went nuts when Oprah scored an on-camera interview with Ralph Lauren (the designer’s first in decades) during the final days of her show. As it turns out, that was just a warm-up. On October 24, the two will take the stage at Lincoln Center for a benefit gala, which Oprah will host and lead a conversation about Lauren’s life and career. [WWD]

Spin dedicated its September issue to artists and style, featuring St. Vincent front woman Annie Clark on the cover. To preview her new album, Spin will host a soldout August 25 show on the roof of the Met—the first concert to ever be held on the museum’s rooftop. [Spin]

Tom’s Not Fit To Be Tied, Marc Jacobs On His Favorite Show Ever, Stella McCartney On The Move, And More…

Turns out there’s a medical explanation for Tom Ford’s oft-exposed chest. “I can only wear [ties] for a few hours and then I start to get a migraine,” the designer reveals in a new hour-long documentary for the Oprah Winfrey Network. He doesn’t like neckwear, but he does like baths, it turns out—up to five a day. [Fashionologie]

Monday’s CFDA Awards are looking more and more starry. In addition to host Anderson Cooper, Naomi Watts and Gerard Butler will be on hand to present. [WWD]

Stella McCartney is following her father into the recording studio—literally. The designer is packing up her Meatpacking store and setting up shop at 112 Greene Street, a former recording space for artists like Run DMC and Salt ‘N Pepa. The new location will open its doors in 2012. [Elle]

Marc Jacobs sits down with WWD for a revealing interview in anticipation of his Lifetime Achievement Award from the CFDA—though he’d rather think of it as the less-valedictory “In-the-Process-of.” Among the revelations? He calls Fall ’11′s Louis Vuitton show the most beautiful he’s ever done, but his favorite show of all time remains his famous grunge presentation for Perry Ellis. [WWD]
