Beyonce’s on the cover of InStyle and we like the dress, but hate the picture.
Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2011 Collection/Model: Ginta Lapina
This is the only one of the Dolce & Gabbana star-spangled dresses that doesn’t look like a birthday party napkin or a superhero costume. It’s fun and shiny; the perfect party dress. Could have done without all the stars floating around her on the cover, though. Gives her a bit of a Tinkerbell vibe.
As for the picture, we’ve seen much, much better shots of Bey, who’s really learned how to work a camera over the last couple of years. She looks kind of washed out and not quite made up enough. We’re all for a natural, clean look, but we don’t think it suits her all that well, nor does it suit that kind of dress, which pretty much requires party-ready hair and makeup.
