Beyonce Killin It In Her 2012 House Of Deréon Ad

The baddest in the game! International mega music superstar Beyoncé is killin it in her 2012 House Of Deréon Ad in a few thigh-high dresses. The ad was shot by famed photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino. It is my opinion to say that the new collection is a reflection of Bey’s personal style. These dresses are something that I can see Bey wearing on the red carpet, at awards shows and in her videos.

According to the brand’s website“The inspiration is more focused around Beyoncé’s Glastonbury stage look. This delivery features sequined styles and an intensified color palette that uses strong shades of ruby and amethyst ground with black to create a bold, exciting fashion statement that evokes a luxe party theme and speaks to a rocker in all of us.”

Don Bleek Writes Open Letter About Reality Shows And Its Impact On Minorities In The Media

Over the last few years, many of reality shows premiered on ‘BET’ and ‘VH1’ including ‘Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is’, ‘The Frankie & Neffe Show’, ‘Tiny & Toya’, ‘Toya: A Family Affair’, ‘Basketball Wives’ and ‘Love & Hip Hop’. People boycotted some of these shows and even started a petition to get them taken off air because of the negative portrayal of African American’s and Minorities in the media, specially women.

Regardless of who didn’t like the shows, that never stopped millions of other viewers tuning in each week, and some of those viewers were the people who had something negative to say about the shows. Yes, TV does have an impact on young women and men and not all shows highlight the positive side as much as the negative side but each person on those shows made a choice to be there and put their business on display for the world to see. Some shows do have a negative impact, but those shows still are not a representation of all African-Americans and minorities.

The executive producers of these reality shows presented the cast members with an opportunity to open up and share their stories with the world and contractually, the participants agreed. What they did was give the world a glimpse into their lives. Their stories are similar to a lot of other people stories; it is just that their stories are being televised.  The shows are about the cast members lives, their relationships, their struggles, their pain, their recovery, their success, their joy, their careers and their future. Some shows also encourage other people to open up about their lives and help inspire them to make the right decisions. It was also reported that a lot of shows that portray African-American and minorities in a negative or not so positive light are getting the highest ratings and the only way networks will stop airing those types of shows is if people stop tuning in. So obviously, people are very interested in watching those types of shows.
