Beyoncé Planning a Maternity Line

When mom-to-be Beyoncé was considering dresses for her big reveal at the MTV Video Music awards, she went through nearly 70 gowns. “I was extremely nervous,” she admits in the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar. “It was the toughest red carpet I ever did.”

Finally settling on a flowing orange Lanvin caftan, she greeted photographers with confidence — showcasing her growing belly without a word. “I didn’t want a crazy picture or gossip story to break the news, so I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump,” she says. “I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything.”

Since then, she’s said a lot — discussing her marriage and her future child more than ever before — but she still remains focused on work, and of course, fashion. “All I see now are clothes that are flattering on a pregnant woman,” she says. “It’s been so exciting for me! I love figuring out designs that still make me feel edgy and sexy while pregnant.” To that end, she says she’s working on a maternity collection for her House of Deréon line — and still wears her stilettos, despite being five-months pregnant.

Counting Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham and Gisele Bündchen among her fashion icons, Beyoncé says she’s “had so much fun with fashion over the months.” And apparently she’s had fun with shopping, too; she admits she spends “too much money shopping on the Internet.”

Not that the superstar has to shop: a number of designers sing her praises in the Harper’s Bazaar piece (she wears Ferragamo on the cover), including Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci. “Givenchy is made for Beyoncé,” he says. “I cannot wait for her to give birth for two reasons. First, because I love her and Jay-Z — they are so happy together — and second, because I want to have goose bumps when I see her back in Givenchy.”

She’s becoming as obnoxious as the Kardashians. We get that you’re pregnant. Guess she wants to cash in on that too. Even the diva Mariah Carey didn’t come out with a maternity line.

“Go away” is right! It must be nice to be able to easily make money hand over fist when the rest of the country is struggling to eat and praying they keep their job, if they’re lucky enough to have one.

Now at least we know why she is faking the pregnancy. She can intro a maternity line, “have” the baby and then a month later have a great/model body and pretend she did it all herself. Fabulous.

So sick of her…

Why do celebs think if they are pregnant they have to then incorporate it into a work project? Are people going to say you are slacking? You are pregnant, just enjoy it, there is no need to use it to increase your bank account.

I know everyone is saying they are tired of Beyonce and that she should go away, but it’s not her fault. People has written at least three articles from the same Harper’s Bazaar interview that Beyonce gave. It’s not like she is going around giving all of these different interviews. So if you want to be mad, be mad at People mag, not Beyonce.

Can’t she just be pregnant without making money off her baby? Doesn’t she have enough money– enough already!


So annoying….. Tired of hearing about it. She is not the first women to have a baby and she certainly wont be the last.
