Poor Beyoncé. On the heels of announcing her pregnancy in true diva style — dramatically and with a tossed microphone — she’s back helping mom Tina Knowles on that blight on fashion’s facade fashion line House of Deréon*. One  minute you’re woman-handling two hyenas in  Givenchy Haute Couture, the next you’re in a snakeskin-print jumper because your mom paid for voice/dance/tranny heel lessons 40 years ago.

Beyonce Still Slumming It for House of Dereon

Beyoncé shot two campaigns, one for fall with Tony Duran (above) and one for the holidays with fashion’s very own St. Dick Nick, Terry Richardson. Of the experience, B had this to say: “Working with Tony and Terry on these two separate campaigns was such an amazing experience. Their approach is so different, yet to me the end results are so beautiful in their own unique way.”

As co-creative director — that happened — I guess she has to say that and as a gay I guess I have to support it. At least she brought out the Foxxy Cleopatra hair this time around so I can have something to hold onto. [WWD]

*Meanwhile, can we talk about the Knowles and their obsession with inconveniently-placed accents?

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester at fashionindie.com
