7 Major Fashion Moments From Beyonce’s New “Black is King”

The build up to Beyonce’s new “Black is King” visual album has been immense. Now that it’s finally here, fans and critics will no doubt dissect every moment of the 1-hour, 25-minute film, which is inspired by last year’s “Lion King: The Gift” (the star also curated that film’s soundtrack album).

There is plenty to analyze when it comes to the overall message — especially at a time when Black identity is at the forefront of the collective mindset. That can also be said of the film’s fashion. The industry is having its own reckoning with racism, both in the past few months and in past years, from Gucci’s and Prada’s blackface missteps in 2019 to the ongoing lack of diversity in the upper echelons of corporate structures.

Thanks to Instagram and the paparazzi, a star’s everyday outfits (a.k.a. their street style) is just as important as any red carpet look. Hailey Bieber’s off-duty style, in particular, is enviable—cool, effortless, a little masculine, but always sexy. Celebrity stylist Maeve Reilly is the woman behind it, though she’ll be the first to tell you that what she has with Beiber is a partnership, that these two are a match made in fashion heaven.

We chatted with Reilly about how her personal style—tomboyish, with lots of leather, baggy pants, crop tops, and sneakers—influences her craft, her career journey—her stacked client list also features Ciara, The Chain Smokers, Channing Tatum, La La Anthony, and Normani—and the process for creating Bieber’s effortlessly cool style. What started with an Instagram DM turned into some very iconic

It’s been almost 40 years since Bob Marley died, but as his daughter tells it, his music and fight has never been more relevant.

Stuart Broad leads charge as England grab initiative against West Indies

Stuart Broad led England’s charge with bat and ball, grabbing the initiative for his side on day two of the must-win third Test against the West Indies.

Broad began his memorable outing with a devil-may-care knock of 62, rolling back the years for his highest score since 2013, before returning to his day job and dismissing two of the tourists’ top five.

His dual efforts helped steer England into a position of strength, helping them overcome an early flurry of wickets to post 369 and playing a central role in keeping the reply to 137 for six.
