With a house music album packed with club bangers, it only makes sense that Beyoncé throw a Studio 54-inspired launch party for her latest drop. After taking the world by storm with her seventh studio album, the singer moved on to the next item on her list last weekend, which was to take over the Paradise Club at the Times Square Edition, New York for an exclusive event dubbed Club Renaissance after her latest work. The invite-only party was attended by Leonardo DiCaprio, Donald Glover, Kendrick Lamar, Janelle Monae, Normani, Chloe Bailey, Yara Shahidi, and others, with Beyoncé and Jay-Z playing host.

Undoubtedly, the woman of the hour arrived in style, dressed in an outfit that not only did the party’s theme justice but also aligned with the disco-centric photoshoot that doubled as her album art. Beyoncé wore a shimmering metallic bodysuit from House of Timothy White in black and silver, paired with crystal-embellished platform heels by Giuseppe Zanotti, Wolford tights, and diamond jewelry from Tiffany & Co. The dazzling ensemble was styled by Marni Senofonte, and while it featured Beyoncé’s signature stage outfit—a bodysuit—it came with statement details such as a long, flowy belt, and matching gloves. Her purse for the evening was equally remarkable (and shiny) — the custom piece was shaped like a record and featured the album’s title, Renaissance, along with its release date. The Grammy-winning singer’s glam for the night also went down the retro route. While her hair was styled in big and textured curls, silver eyeliner and long lashes defined her makeup look.

Many of Beyoncé’s best looks have been all about the sparkle and shine factor coupled with the idea of ‘more is more,’ making her one of the biggest fans of Arab designers‘ extravagant pieces. Think: the custom lion-bearing look by Georges Hobeika made of shimmering embroidery, or the glittering Yousef Al Jasmi dress she wore in 2019. Come party season, one need not look further than her latest look backed up by her repertoire of bold pieces for inspiration to go all-out in metallics and glitters.

10 Unexpected Styling Tricks from Chanel’s Métiers D’Art Show

10 Unexpected Styling Tricks from Chanel’s Métiers D’Art Show

Juergen Teller

For the uninitiated, Chanel’s Métiers d’art collection is its annual December showcase of its extraordinary dedication and commitment to craft. A tradition inaugurated in 2002, the collection features exemplars from the famed 10 workshops of Lesage, Lemarié, Desrues, Atelier Montex, Massaro, Maison Michel, Ateliers de Verneuil-en-Halatte, Goossens, Causse and Lognon, who provide the house with everything from hand-worked lace to fine embroidery, magnificent buttons to meticulous studwork, sensational hats to feathered fripperies.
For the 2020 edition, the brand took the traveling show to Château de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley. It inspired a loose “Renaissance” theme that encouraged artisanal minds to go wild: an elegant, black latticework dress was punctuated with studs, made by Lemarié; a damask dress was embroidered by Lesage; glitter-soaked platform sandals were crafted by Massaro. Not forgetting, as Virginie Viard added in a statement: “A big black hat by Maison Michel, for a look that is very Milady! I also asked the Atelier Montex to make embroideries from the castle in the style of a child’s toy in strass. Because I like everything to be mixed up, all the different eras, between the Renaissance and romanticism, between rock and something very girly, it is all very Chanel.” Below, the styling tricks to borrow from the Chanel Métiers d’art collection.
The Chanel two-piece gets an athleisure spin
Struggling to prise your limbs from their lockdown leggings? We bring glad tidings: Chanel’s trad two-piece now comes teamed with ’80s-style power walking tights in surprisingly shiny hues.

Seeking to update your winter coat? Just add pearls
As we all know, long ropes of pearls were a Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel signature. And they came down the chequerboard runway at Château des Dames (a nickname that points to the property’s predominantly female stewardship), looped over rich tweeds and deliciously cosy-looking knits – the simplest way to update a winter favourite. (History buffs will have enjoyed the renewed potency lent by the Renaissance surroundings: Catherine de’ Medici, who once owned the château, had a passion for pearls – her marriage trousseau included six ropes of some of the largest pearls ever seen, as well as 25 pear-shaped paragons.)

Try an unlikely colour combination
Teal and raspberry? Charming, on the evidence of Chanel’s two-bags-good approach to layering up accessories.

Introducing the plush playsuit
The quickest way to inject tweed with a frisson of youth, according to Virginie Viard, involves baring some leg. Mini playsuits paired with cropped jackets comprised some of the stand-out looks in this collection: keep things ladylike with dainty ankle-strap shoes.

Belt up and breathe in
It’s the most instant of styling tricks that is nevertheless often overlooked: simply put, nothing makes a boxy jacket look sleeker than a waist-cinching belt – preferably one sporting the double-Cs logo.

Consider the after-dark belt
On the subject of belts, don’t underestimate the myriad glamorous uses for a jewel-encrusted chain style. While the heavenly glitter-inflected tweed two-piece of look 25 boasts all-eyes-on-me appeal all on its own, a delicate, twinkling belt at the waist never fails to enliven a silhouette.

Don gloves – and an ironic smile
There’s something wonderfully campy about gloves worn in modern-day settings: indulge in Chanel’s cultivated, lace-trim set and wear with denim for maximum irony.

Say yes to the hennin
Viard may have steered clear of the kitschy themes that came to dominate coverage of the late Karl Lagerfeld’s endlessly imaginative Chanel offerings, but don’t think for one moment that she isn’t capable of turning on the dramatics. Conical headgear crafted by Maison Michel was a witty update on Catherine de’ Medici’s penchant for classic black (she was known as the Black Queen, opting to wear the inky hue exclusively after her husband’s death). We say: doesn’t it look romantic?

Glitter shoes make everything happier
Is there anything more cheering than a pair of elegant, glitter-choked, evening shoes? Be playful: black cocktail dresses look best set against sparkle.
