Hot off a Golden Globe Best Actress nomination for her role in the glossy, glistening and energizing adaptation of the 1981 Broadway musical, Beyoncé Knowles is getting rave reviews and we can’t wait to see her on the red carpet.

In the January issue, the singer/actress admits she lost her cool when she found herself in the same spot as Miss Diana Ross (the rumored inspiration for her lead singer character). “I was terrified,” the star said. “Then she tapped me on the shoulder and told me that she was glad that I was doing Dreamgirls.”

In the “style file” section, the discussion is about “How to Wear Stripes” and 30s/40s Classic with a Twist. Alex Woo’s Sienna Bangles are shown as part of the trend watch.
