10 Fashion Lessons We Can Learn From Beyonce


Beware of Your Mother's Designs

Along with her mother and stylist Tina Knowles, Beyonce started House of Dereon in 2006. The fashion line pays tribute to three generations of Knowles women and brings fashions worn on stage by Beyonce to the ready-to-wear market.

While a few designs have been absolutely smashing, some have ranked among Beyonce's biggest fashion don'ts. At the 2009 Academy Awards, she wore a fitted fishtail dress that appeared to be made from a bolt of fabric intended for draperies. Another controversial look was the studded leggings she wore out on the streets of New York in January 2011.

When legendary design houses like Balmain and Versace know how to flatter your figure, it's okay to just say no to mom.
