Meet the Stylist and Personal Shopper Beyoncé Hired for Blue Ivy

Blue Ivy Carter‘s style captures the essence of Black Girl Magic, and it’s not by accident.

Beyoncé, a pop star icon and mother of three, enlists the help of Manuel A. Mendez, who has been an employee of her company, Parkwood Entertainment since 2009. The executive-assistant-turned-stylist acts as the curator of the six-year-old’s wardrobe and brains behind her epic looks.

His most recent stunner: Blue Ivy’s golden, ruffled dress at the Wearable Art Gala. Although the girl makes the dress, not the other way around, this epic look most likely played a role in the first grader’s $19,000 bid. When you’re pop culture royalty and dripping in gold, go big or go home, right?

Kate Hudson’s Romantic History: The Life-Changing Loves, the Fun Flings and the Fantastical Headlines

Theirs was a passionate relationship, with Hudson also explaining to People that year, “In the beginning we were so volatile. We were so in love and passionate, and then we would just hate each other and throw stuff around, and then we would travel to Paris for a week.”

They welcomed son Ryder on Jan. 7, 2004. Hudson said, about becoming parents, “I think it’s the best we’ve ever felt being together.”

But there was no magical glue that could hold the couple together. They separated in August 2006 and Robinson filed for divorce that November. Whatever sticking points made staying together impossible, they’ve since had an almost-drama-free divorce, the actress and the rock star putting Ryder’s needs ahead of any lingering bad blood.

“Chris and I divorced for the right reasons—we just didn’t work. But we remain extremely close,” Hudson told the Daily Mail in 2008, having just played one half of an estranged couple that reconnects during a zany treasure hunt in Fool’s Gold. “The reasons are personal [as to why it didn’t work], but those things weren’t difficult. They can be, but dealing with work schedules is always a challenge. I think that’s true for everybody.”

Madonna’s Son “Steals” Her Beauty Products, Plus Her $10 Obsession

You don’t have to be a music icon to get great skin. But being Madonna helps.

Even at a young age, the “Like a Virgin” singer has always been diligent about maintaining a healthy complexion. When she didn’t have much money, she used to get facials from a heroin addict, Madonna shared at the U.S. launch of her beauty brand, MDNA Skin, in September 2017. Now the 59-year-old queen of pop has the resources and platform to share her devotion to skin care with the masses.

“The biggest challenge is getting the story out there—where does this line come from and why it is important to me, that it’s not a vanity project, why I developed it in the first place and connecting to people on a human level,” said Madonna to E! News in a phone interview.

You could just scoop up her latest launch—a four-in-one (toning serum, lotion, cream and mask) product appropriately titled, The Reinvention Cream ($75). Like all MDNA products, the lightweight jelly-cream features M.T.Parca Thermal Water, which comes from four different springs in Montecatini, Italy, known for its healing properties. The cream also features three African Resurrection plants (the ones that can sustain extreme dehydration then spring back alive with water). But as Madonna can attest, basic lifestyle choices—the ones that cost almost nothing—can improve your skin, too.

Here, the Material Girl reveals the skin-care tips she imparts on her kids, three beauty products she always has in her bag (hint: one is crazy affordable!) and more!

Tiffany Haddish Role-Plays Date With Brad Pitt and Jokes About Pact

Haddish told Fallon she met Pitt in an elevator at a pre-Oscar party while also standing inside with Elizabeth Perkins and her husband. The group had attended the Gersh Agency’s bash.

“I was talking to Elizabeth Perkins and her husband was in the elevator and I liked the way he was looking at her and I was like, ‘I hope one day I get me a husband like that, I hope one day a man look at me that way and love me that much,'” she said. “And then Brad Pitt was standing right next to me and then Elizabeth’s husband was like, ‘Man, I hope we don’t get caught in this elevator’ and I was like, ‘It’s gonna be some pretty-ass babies in this elevator if we do.'”

John Legend – A Good Night (feat. Bloodpop)

[Verse 1]
I had no intention I would get fucked up tonight
When I looked in your eyes and they went through me like a knife
I came here with my crew, I lost them
Came with my cool, I dropped it
And if I’m being honest, I’m being honest

[Pre-Chorus]
I can’t think when you’re looking like that
Can’t breathe when you’re moving like that
Tell me when you’re gonna do me like that (yea)
I’m too weak and I never like that
Light-speed and I think I might crash
One trip down and I’ll never go back

[Chorus]
But everything’s gonna be alright
I think I just met my wife (yeah, I said it)
I know it’s gonna be a good night
I think I just met my wife (alright)

[Verse 2]
Maybe it’s the music or the red stain on your lips
I wonder when’s the right time to go in for a kiss
But I’m thinking past that lover, I’m ready to meet your momma
If I’m being honest, I’m being honest

[Pre-Chorus]
I can’t think when you’re looking like that
Can’t breathe when you’re moving like that
Tell me when you’re gonna do me like that (yea)
I’m too weak and I never like that
Light-speed and I think I might crash
One trip down and I’ll never go back

[Chorus]
But everything’s gonna be alright
I think I just met my wife (yeah, I said it)
I know it’s gonna be a good night
I think I just met my wife (alright)

[Bridge]

And baby it’s you, yeah
And baby it’s you, yeah

[Chorus]
And everything’s gonna be alright
I think I just met my wife
I know it’s gonna be a good night

I know it’s gonna be a good night
I think I just met my wife (alright, c’mon)
Everything’s gonna be alright
I think I just met my wife
I know it’s gonna be a good night
I think I just met my wife (c’mon)

Blink 182 – American Dream

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

[Verse 1]
Look at them
Uh
How to make it in America
Real nigga, day one, ain’t a lot of us
Mom worked two jobs, it was hard for us
Me and sis made it out, now she proud of us
They ain’t teach me how to rap in those private schools
Wasn’t like my rich friends, had a lot to lose
Less money, less options, lot of rules
So when that first deal came it was opportune
And shawty got potential, I scout that
She say she in love, but I doubt that
Maybe it’s the drugs or the clout
I get love in the north, I get love in the south, yeah
Shawty claim she a feminist and her ex man feminine
God damn girl you know that he average
God damn girl you know I’m a savage

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

[Verse 2]
New money
Now I’m in the Benz truck with a new honey
Yeah, they said I wouldn’t make it
I’m like, "You funny"
Laughing at my haters like, "You dummies"
The night is young, girl what can you do for me?
Six figures, five shows, big ballin’
Look, I’m very important
I took a break, had some things I had to get sorted
I might retire in my prime like I’m M. Jordan
Table dancing in South Hampton
Use the wine glasses for dirty fantas
We coolin’ out in the whip and I done damn near smashed every girl on my list
KD at the three, Djokovic with the racket
Phelps in the pool, I’m like Speith at the masters
God damn girl you know you a bad bitch
God damn girl you know I’m a savage

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them

[Bridge]
Another day in the U.S.A
Just another day in America
Kids from my hood look up to the drug dealers
The system set us up for failure
I just wanna make enough to pay dividends
Then invest in black businesses
They teach us to hate what we see in the mirror
But it can’t break our spirit

[Chorus]
They gon’ let me in this club in these dirty vans
Clean money, I count stacks with these dirty hands
Do a show, copped a rack with my new advance
50 bands, 80, bands, 100 bands
I’m the American dream
We the American dream
New money, no class
Look at them
