Beyonce Dereon clothing lines

One of the most beautiful and famous music and film stars in the world arrived amid intense excitement at the incredibly opulent Alahambra Palace, where she socialized with dozens of friends and special fans in the luxurious VIP Room hidden away in the south corner of the dramatic tiered balcony.

Hundreds of gorgeous people socialized in the Alhambra’s exotic lounge, and a thousand more dined, drank, and danced below the Alhambra’s gigantic star shaped fixture as they awaited a glimpse of their idol.

Beyonce Knowles truly is as breathtaking in person as she is in her videos and on the screen in DREAMGIRLS, and I was truly thrilled when she posed for my camera.
