Whats Poppington: Beyonce for ‘Dazed & Confused’ Magazine

Beyonce covers the latest Dazed & Confused magazine, this time around there wasnt a magazine editor doing the interview instead the tables were turned and Uber known designers such as Tom Ford, Riccardo Tisci, Stefano Pilati and Gareth Pugh all had the chance to do the questions. For the feature, she answered questions on whether she’s shy when she’s not on stage, the first thing she does upon waking up in the morning and why it was important for her to take risks on her new album

Are you shy? (Asked by Tom Ford)
I used to be very shy. I don’t think I’m shy any more. I get really uncomfortable when I’m not performing on the stage or on a photo shoot and have too many people looking at me expecting a performance. It make me kind of shut down and become shy. I’m happier to talk to people and try to learn something from them. I’m better at one-on-one conversations. I do become shy and a bit intimidated when it’s a large group of people, I definitely retreat. At a big dinner I just hope that no one expects anything from me. I wish I’d disappear.

What is the first thing you do when you wake up? (asked by Ricardo Tisc)
Usually I try to stay quiet and meditate. Not literally meditate. I mean lay in bed and think about everything I need to do, plus everything I learned from the previous day. In the past couple of weeks, I’ve literally fallen asleep with the blackberry in my hand because I’m up answering emails, coming up with marketing plans and looking at radio numbers. It’s really sad! My family is like, ‘Oh my God!’ I literally have pictures of me knocked out with my finger on the computer space bar!

Virgo characteristics do you have? (asked by Gareth Pugh)

I am a Virgo to the tee! I wonder what signs the other designers are? I like to think outside the box. I don’t believe in the answer ‘no’. I am extremely driven and extremely critical – sometimes overly critical. Sometimes it is one of the things that I have to work on. I am a control freak. I pay attention to details. When I do something I do it 100 per cent. I have high expectations of myself and expect the exact same thing of everyone around me. I’ve always been that way. I am all or nothing.

In addition, she explains to the magazine that it was important for her to take risks this time around versus making music that everyone else is making.

This part of my life is all about embracing change and going to the next level, taking risks and showing my bravery. Not being safe. Not doing the song that everyone else on pop radio sounds like. Basically, what everyone else is doing, unless it’s something that’s natural for me. I want to do something completely different. I feel like I’ve earned that right. Risks excite me

Whats Poppington: Givenchy x Converse Chuck Taylor Hi-Top



In his fascination over Gothic theme, Riccardo Tisci, the creative director of both men’s and women’s collection at fashion house GIVENCHY gave raise to the extraterrestrial chic found on many of the label’s most recent runway presentation. But his extravagant creativity isn’t limited to the haute fashion, but in more conventional existences like the cover art to Jay-Z x Kanye West H.A.M. single and this Chuck Taylor All-Star as part of CONVERSE Addict line. Primal and wild, a leopard skin pattern in tonal black treatment covered the canvas high-top with an outsole in matching colorway. A thin white piping strikes across the midsole as if to draw your attention to the heel tab, where a row of blacken studs runs down the middle. Like many of Tisci’s creations, a dynamic showing of both subtle and wild, the GIVENCHY x CONVERSE Addict Chuck Taylor All Star Hi will be available in the range of sizes US 5 to 11.5 at a price of JP ¥29,400, or US $347.
