J.Crew held its very first Mercedes Benz Fashion Week presentation at Lincoln Center this morning and while the promise of Jenna Lyons was exciting enough, nothing (and we mean nothing) prepared us for the sparkly celeb explosion that was Beyonce Knowles walking in to check out the wares.
Is there any name more bold-faced than Beyonce and her beybey bump right now? No. So, after dedicating a few moments to congratulating ourselves for being so late to the presentation — what perfect timing! — we did what any sane, Beyonce-obsessed blogger would do: we stalked her with our iPhone camera. Which, you know, we’d probably feel bad about if Lyons herself wasn’t an equally giggly fangirl mess about the whole thing. As Lyons made her way through the photog scrum towards B and her sis, Solange, she turned around and whispered breathlessly to her publicist, “Ohmygod, I think I’m going to pass out.”
And then later, as Beyonce made her way around to the men’s side of the presentation, we found ourselves smushed up right behind Lyons, who was still looking more than a little starstruck. Because it’s our job, we asked if she was taking any questions. While her publicist interjected to ask us where we were from, Lyons laughed. “Not while Beyonce is here! I can barely talk! I can’t even spell my own name.”
As if we needed another reason to love either of them any more.

this is some kind of spaceship or something.
