Beyonce is in Cuba celebrating her 5th wedding anniversary with Jay-Z. While there she rocked a heavy-looking set of box braids, red lips, cat eye glasses, and a printed top and skirt ensemble. Later in the evening, she rocked a printed dress with cap-toe heels.

Personally I’m loving the look! It has a vintage, Caribbean feel to it. Very nice.

What do you think? (And on a side note… what is up with Jay-Z’s white sneakers??? He looks like he’s in junior high. Beyonce, come get your man!)

I love how beautifully ethnic she looks!! But living here in South Florida (which has a huge Cuban population), I wonder if there will be any backlash if she is seen as a Castro sympathizer. Crazy!!

Ethnic”? I thought everyone had an ethnicity.…

In any case, she looks gorgeous!

Ditto re: “backlash”. Hopefully others will be inspired to consider Cuba as a travel destination. It’s certainly on my list.

Also loving the photo with the chidren. The girls are natural, and one of them has gorgeous cocoa (afro) puffs.

I love when she has dark hair. She looks so youthful and beautiful.
LOL at the comment on Jay-Z’s shoes. I’ve always thought the same…he’s 40+ but dresses like he’s 14 :s

Damn, Bey looks exactly like the women and girls I grew up with in West Africa. I LOVE IT. She truly looks her best when she is casual and natural. While I also love her sexy stage get-ups and make-up, I wish she would the super blonde hair. Black hair or a darker shade of blonde truly complements her complexion.

Love JAH

She looks gorge. Happy anniversary to the Knowles…

anom

Carters?

Nisha

She looks beautiful. I agree with the other posters: she looks younger and fresher when she’s a bit more natural. Also, those box braids are dope…although they look terribly heavy.

I have not seen Beyonce look this good in a very long time…she should really consider using braids more often. Niceeeee

LOL @Caribbean. People in the caribbean honestly dont dress like that, I like it though , the prints are really nice

Ebone

Forget her hair and forget his white sneakers; is that her mother in the first photo, back left? Why is your mother on your anniversary vacation? That should be a time for them to (re)connect as a couple with out the parental figures.

Kayla
Guest

Oh-ho! That is Ms. Tina back there! On another note, did Jay Z lose weight?

Jo
Guest

Both mothers are there. Look at the woman behind Jay Z, he looks just like her.

Hayna
Guest

Jay-Z’s mother is also in the same picture. I guess they wanted to treat them too! 🙂

I agree this look has a great vintage feel! She looks absolutely beautiful in these photos.

Cheryl

I like how she dresses like she has respect for herself. She doesn’t just show her ass cuz she can. And that’s respectful of her man as well.

Amaka
Guest

I think Jay’s mom is back there too! lol I love her look. The braids are nice, the African print is dope. Love the look. Looks like a beautiful west African lady

i’ve never been a Bey fan but she looks great here.

Petula
Guest

Yup, love her look in the first photo — braids, shades, lip color, outfit all rock. Shoes not so much.

Evening outfit isn’t my fav, but I think it looks good on her and shoes are “nice.”

Reanna
Guest

Wow you read my mind with your comments. I thought the look was vintage and she looked absolutely stunning. Then I looked down at Jay-Z’s shoes and I was like why is a grown man like him wearing sneakers??? Glad to know somebody gets where I’m coming from…

Tisha
Guest

B is actually looking very pretty in that “I-dont-try-too-hard-but-I-still-look-good” way. Did she take some fashion tips from her sister b/c she has improved greatly imo.love the braids also.

Take some time off, enjoy and come back with some good music 🙂

Hailey

love! she looks so beautiful and classy.

Ev`Yan

I have never been a Beyonce fan (ever!), but after seeing this pictures I kind of want to *be* her.

ty
Guest

it’s a good thing Bey and Jay dress for themselves and not to please others. I think Bey looks great as per usual.

G
Guest

She looks great rocking her natural hair color, I hate the blonde!

Beyonce is the only one who’ll rock box braids for ONE day and be back to weave the following day! Lol. I wouldn’t mind that, but once my braids were in, better believe it’d be 8 weeks before I even considered removing them lol. It cost too much time and money!

She looks hot, by the way. Seems very solange inspired.

gapch
Guest

who knows how long she really keeps them in for. its probably a few weeks or a month at least.…

R Ferrell

This is a great look, and she does it well. Love it!

Saskia

She is gorgeous and DO NOT come for Jay. He can wear what ever he wants. Beautiful couple.

Katrina

In the 3rd picture Beyonce is looking like “Booooy say something smart one more time!!” lol

Shahidah
Guest

LMAO!!!! I really love their friendship/love/relationship they both seem to accept the other one wholeheartily. When Beyonce was breaking out she was criticized for her love for him. She attributes her growth to him but I attribute his growth to her.

Crist
Guest

looks like Jay-Z was just smoking cubans all day!!

Shahidah
Guest

definitely a vintage feel to her look. She looks happy and beautiful. Guess that is what love buys you!

AJ
Guest

I like it!!!

Sabrina Boissiere
Guest

Nothing wrong with crisp white sneakers! Classic… Her braids are too dark and too many; looks really heavy.

Laura
Guest

She looks lovely.The look is more African than Caribbean though

Woman
Guest

Exactly, as a Caribbean woman I was like “why is Beyonce in Cuba with so much tribal print on?” and then here they call it Caribbean, when it’s far from it. She looks great, but that’s African.

lola
Guest

But can people stop calling African fabrics “tribal prints?” I simply cannot tolerate blatant ignorance, just stop. The Western world does the most.

Sandi
Guest

All tribal prints aren’t African.

Where do most carribeans come from lmao

I love the look and LOVE the braids…I printed the pics so I can get some!

Cleo

I’m lovin it!!! She looks great, she looks like African royalty. Might have to get some box braids when I go to Puerto Rico this summer.

She looks absolutely beautiful! They look so happy together — the real deal!

Tonia
Guest

I am far from Beyonce Stan but I love this look on her. The dark hair suits her very well.

Candi
Guest

Tonia, I’m not a B fan neither, but she is making me want some box braids. Nice summer protective style. I just don’t want them dumb long where they put a strain on my hair or edges.

Unique4me

I love the look on beyonce. Very classy. On another note, does she look pregnant to anyone?

maralondon

When I first saw this picture a couple of days ago I thought there’s a hint of Carmen Miranda and one famous African Cuban performer (her name eludes me). The latter often paid homage to her West African ancestors in her performances.

Celia Cruz is of whom you are speaking of.

It?s amazing article, What more can I say but thank you.

Just heard this morning on the radio that officials down here in South Florida are looking into Bey and Jay’s Cuba trip to see if they broke any laws. I knew there was going to be a problem, but I’m sure Beyonce knows that it is illegal for Americans to travel to Cuba unless you meet 1 or 2 criteria. So hopefully they have the right paperwork and all is good!!

Michelle Spice
Guest

the couple looks great together!

Drikaw
Guest

I love the look, but we need not know about each time Beyonce has braids. That look is not new. I guess her celebrating her wedding anniversary with Jay is something to pay attention to. And no, Jay doesn’t look like he’s in junior high. Don’t get on him like he don’t know how to dress. He’s a freakin mogul.

Sharon J
Guest

She looks so happy. Her hair and her clothes look very stylish.

Anne
Guest

I think She looks Nice but i dont like the heavyness of the Braids ‚as it suits her sister best. Shorter Braids would be the Bomb on her for me.. I like her Hair Natural and the Beauty in her natural face..Wish she wouldnt wear fur though.

Payton
Guest

Hmmmn is she wearing fur now??? We are talking about her hair hon!

bzcitybeauty
Guest

Personally I love this look I total..I love the braids they go lovely with the african print attire and those heels are killer! But where’s Blue Ivy I miss though cheeks!!!!

Caramelcurls
Guest

I am tender headed, so I couldn’t rock braids like that, especially in an updo b/c it would be too heavy for me, but I think it is a very cute look—it’s very regal. Also I love Bey’s sense of style here, it’s very on trend, fresh, and classy. I would rock both outfits in a minute!

Denise
Guest

She looks amazing as always. You go B!!!

Jacky
Guest

She looks great,love the outfits.

Jacky

Bey inspired my current hairstyle. Love her style. I have boho/Cali inspired braids in right now. If you’re curious about what that translates into, you can see it here http://youtu.be/mSl58o9R-W4. 3
