Who wears short shorts and mixed patterns? Beyonce in St Tropez!

Having just launched our Best Dressed of the Day feature yesterday, we hit an immediate stumbling block today with the realisation that the combined efforts of all of the image agencies we use could not produce a single image of a well-dressed celebrity. Celebs, you done let us down. Please try harder tomorrow.

Instead, then, here’s a photo of Beyonce, who’s currently on holiday with Jay Z in St. Tropez, leaving her yacht to head to Club 55. You’re welcome!

    That’s a weird look.

    Beyonce’s style is questionable even at the best of times, and this outfit looks like a mad person lives in her closet and picks out her clothes. The combo out of hell aside, why on earth would anyone even own those shorts?

    I would be disappointed if Beyonce was wearing something tame… this is ghetto fabulous – check out the OTT gold bling, and you know it’s real ’cause that couple is richer than God. It’s something I would never wear (nor could I afford to) but she’s gorgeous, she’s Amazonian, she’s a bit old school, think: MC Hammer’s old mansion. This doesn’t strike me as a fashion crime. (But it wouldn’t work many other people… well, maybe MIA).

    I think this whole look is so trashy!

    It’s not something that I could pull off for sure, but show me something that Beyonce can’t rock and I’ll give you a hundred bucks. This outfit would be terrible on anyone else and I’m still not sure I like it on B, but for certain if there’s anyone who could wear that and not be an outright fashion criminal, it’s Beyonce!

    Am I wrong in noticing that her shorts are terribly unflattering? I think Beyonce is an exceptionally beautiful woman and has amazing style – but those shorts do her no favours. They are 2 sizes too small and all bunched and pulling over thighs. No woman wants that.

    Those shorts are a problem, but I maintain that Beyonce looks about ten times better in this than anyone else could. She’s just bloody stunning.

    I think we need to acknowledge Jay-Z’s shorts too…and the guy in front wearing white athletic shoes and socks…

    If I had thunder thighs like that, I would never wear anything to draw attention to them! The thighs are genetic I think, as many African-American women have the same shape, even if they are fit people. The shorts are too small and are cutting through her flesh! + the pattern adds to the unflattering shape on her. Those shorts are good on a skinny long legged gal!

      In what universe does Beyonce have ‘thunder thighs’? I may not like the clashy patterns, but her body looks great here.

        Eden, in my universe she is fat, in your universe she is perfect!! So what, people have different taste… grow up woman! Every one is entitled to their opinion, and those who read comments waiting to get offended!! well, they should just get a life. I will never allow my body to get to that stage where my thighs rub together as I walk.

    she’s too good for this. really. I’d rather see her on the beach in that metal corset or one of her thundercats outfits than this wreck! xx

    I don’t like the outfit because the patterns clash, and I tend to not like multicolor patterns anyway.

    the shorts look like they are about to cut off the circulation of blood in her legs.
    there is way too much going on in her outfit, it doesn`t look very well. why did she feel the need to hang those heavy chains around her neck?
    the clothes do nothing for her figure, all the patterns and tight clothes make her shorter and stubbier than she really is.

    I HATE the unflattering shorts !!! C’mon, if you have thighs like those, maye it would be better to wear wider bottoms, or a skirt , or maybe just the blouse as a dress (very common when you are at the beach), since the blouse itself is so gorgeous and fresh (maybe silk?).

    Do you remember all those women who wear very tight shorts, and when they walk, their thighs rub together and the fabric starts to go all the way up !!! and after that, it is very unconfortable to stare those woman trying to pull their shorts down again

    yiakkkk

    use shorts that fit your legs, let their blood circulate please

    It could be worse – at least the colours are mostly from the same palette.

    And on the thighs question, at least she has a skin tone that goes with the “skater thighs” gene. If that gene’s combined with the “translucently pale” one you *never* wear shorts…

    Beyonce looks fantastic here. This is the perfect beach-y St. Tropez look. I can’t believe these comments: everyone is so waspy it hurts. Many non-waspy women have curvy figures and don’t hate themselves for it.

      She does. Her body *is* her style. The colours suit her, and she wouldn’t look any better if she tried to camouflage her figure, put on something allegedly “slimming”, or cover up. She would just become invisible, like so many of us have. She’s headed for a club, so she’s just fine! It’s not that she is going to the bank or something.
