Style Scoop: First Look at Beyonce for H&M, Frank Ocean x Band of Outsiders, Robert Pattinson Headed to Dior?
It's true, it's true! Beyoncé, aka Mrs. Carter, aka the most buzzworthy bee of them all, is fronting H&M's Summer 2013 campaign. And knowing how hands-on she is with her career, it's no surprise that the “Bow Down” singer gave “personal input” on the pieces featured in the ads, all inspired by her personal style. ” I've always liked H&M's focus on fun affordable fashion,” said Beyoncé of the Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin-lensed campaign. “I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements – fire, water, earth and wind.” [GLAM Chic]

The trippy “Forrest Gump” singer is the latest celeb—following Amy Adams and Josh Brolin—to be shot for the label's Spring 2013 polaroid-style look book. Ocean's captures were shot by founder and CEO Scott Sternberg in downtown LA. [LA Times]
