Beyonce Named Most Powerful Celebrity; Kanye West is Back at A.P.C.

And Pippa Middleton's bridesmaid dress was meant to be "insignificant."

Beyoncé Named Most Powerful Celebrity: Move over Oprah, Beyoncé is coming through. The pop diva is now the world’s most powerful celebrity, according to Forbes. The power list, which cites the singer's concert tours, surprise namesake album, and fashion label among the contributions to her top spot, considers celebrities from all aspects of popular culture: actors, musicians, athletes, models, and entertainers. The international pop star has also been ranked on the publication’s list of most powerful women and as one part of the world’s highest-earning couple two years in a row. [The Guardian]

Kanye West Returns To A.P.C.: If you didn’t have a chance to snag a piece from Kanye West’s first collaboration with French label A.P.C., a second chance will be available on July 17. Inspired by military looks, the rapper's second collection will feature simple basics as well as parkas, cargo pants, and bomber jackets. A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou told Style.com that this will be the final collaboration between with two, so pieces are sure to sell out even quicker than the first. [Fashionista]

Pippa Middleton’s “Insignificant” Bridesmaid Dress: It turns out the Alexander McQueen dress that Pippa Middleton sported at her sister’s royal wedding was genuinely meant to be “insignificant,” and was never intended to draw the spectacle it did to the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge. “I think the plan was not really for it to be a significant dress. Really just to sort of blend in with the train,” she said on NBC. “I suppose it’s flattering, embarrassing, definitely. It wasn’t planned.” Middleton, who was thrust into the spotlight after the world noticed her incredibly fit behind in the dress, is rumored to be joining the news channel as a reporter. [Vogue UK]
