Beyoncé Reveals Stylish Prom Picture: Singer Beyoncé revealed her stylish prom picture, proving that the star's great taste has existed for years. Her gown was elegant yet sexy, with details that were completely “in” at the moment. “If it weren’t for the gown’s swirl print,” Styleite argues, “we’d even go as far as say that we could have seen it on one of fashion month’s fierce femme runways.” Beyond the dress, Beyoncé's hair, makeup, and accessories coordinate perfectly.

Hedi Slimane Ends 15-Year Relationship With Colette Over T-Shirts: Parody T-shirts of luxury fashion brands including Hermès, Céline, and Saint Laurent, to name a few, made a splash on the street-style front earlier this year. Saint Laurent designer Hedi Slimane, however, was not a fan of the “Ain’t Laurent Without Yves” tees that seemingly poked fun of the decision to change the former Yves Saint Laurent label to a more simplistic Saint Laurent. Parisian concept store Colette, a seller of the T-shirts, reportedly received the brunt of Slimane's anger. Although Colette's creative director Sarah Andelman removed the T-shirts from the store's website, Slimane still canceled “[Colette's] spring 2014 orders for the Saint Laurent collections totaling 211,531 euros at wholesale,” removed Andelman from the guest list for the brand's show Monday, and “[forbid her] from selling copies of the indie magazine Document that features a cover of artist Joe Goode photographed by Slimane.” [WWD]
