Beyonce Covers September 2010 SELF Magazine, Gets Accused of STEALING Her Dereon Leggings?!

 

 

Beyonce is on the cover of Self magazine's September 2010 issue. Read on to find out what she had to say about charity and her motivations.

 

Plus, we have her new drama about claims that she stole her Dereon designs from another designer....

 

Beyonce is looking gorge on the cover of Self magazine for the second time. In this September 2010 issue, she addresses her philanthropy, her motivation, and how anyone can make a difference.  A few quotes from her cover story:

On her reason for charity work

Beyonce: "I’ve always felt that you should give because it’s what you can do to help. You don’t do it to get praised. For a long time, being quiet about what I did was a conscious decision. When you look around at all that’s wrong in the world, the need to do something, no matter how big or how small, is clear."

 

On what motivates her

Beyonce: "Sisterhood means everything to me. All the charities I’m involved with are special, but I find any organization that focuses on women and children really motivating. GEMS and the young ladies the nonprofit helps are very close to my heart. And what I took away from the clients at Phoenix House changed my life. These were real people who touched me so much that I had to go beyond making a donation. They’re gaining skills at the Cosmetology Center, which will help them earn a living and find their way out of substance abuse—it’s a testament to the possibility of second chances."

 

On how anyone can make a difference

Beyonce: "Think about what truly touches you and motivates you to help, then start locally. Once it’s in your heart to give, you’ll have to follow through. I am a happy woman—very happy—because I know that I’ve worked hard, and I love being able to give back"."

 

P.C. as usual.  At least she's consistent.

 

Not all is well for Mrs. Carter however. She has been accused of stealing one of her new Dereon leggings designs (above) from Iceland's E-Label shop. 

The craziest part is, the designer was told Beyonce indeed purchased a pair of the E-Label leggings from a TopShop in London. In ads for her new Dereon line, she is seen wearing the leggings in question, and one of the owners of E-Label noticed it.

Heba Hallgrimsdottir, one of the owners, said “This is naturally huge and I am still half in shock. I didn’t [recognize] straight away that this was her own label: I just thought she was wearing our leggings. It is practically just copy/paste,”

E-Label's leggings design isn't copyrighted but they believe the large coverage of Beyonce's purchase will be enough to prove plagiarism. The Icelandic clothing label isn't sure if they will sue saying, "I have only just heard about this and no decision has yet been taken. We need to inspect her brand’s trousers closer because, according to law, it is not copied if a certain number of things have been changed from the original design"

 

Here's E-Label's "Heavy Metal" leggings straight off their site. Your thoughts?

 

BONUS: Here's some videos (that may be used for a Beyonce DVD of some sort) of Bey practicing and developing the choreography for the "Ego" video and tour reheasal footage:

I don't see the big deal,

I don't see the big deal, companies do "knock-offs" everyday—that's why we can afford to look like we are wearing YSL when we might really be wearing Steve Madden... Even MaxMara has a bag featured in the August issue of Harper's that may cost a few hundred to thousand (not sure) but it looks extremely similar to a Birkin (Hermes) that is obviously 10 grand or more... it's fashion and that company just wants publicity and any time you do something and put Beyonce's name in it—that is exactly what you get... PUBLICITY.

Some of you folks need to

Some of you folks need to look up the definition of plagiarism.......next, take a moment and think.........successful rich individuals get sued all the time. Everyone is looking for an extra dollar and will do whatever to get it. People hate on this woman and she just keeps going and going and going.....* side note - I have seen studded leggings at different stores with different types of studs and different arrangements and these folks are not suing them. They are only suing due to the fact that she is an international star and will continue to be such no matter how much you folks want her to go away and die and Jay Z to leave her and yadda yadda yadda......damn........ folks really need to get a new hobby and I am NO stan......NEXT!!!!

the act of plagiarizing;

the act of plagiarizing; taking someone's words or ideas as if they were your own wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn The act of plagiarizing: the copying of another person's ideas, text, or other creative work, and presenting it as one's own, especially without permission; Text or other work resulting from this act en.wiktionary.org/wiki/plagiarism The act of copying any portion of another's work and representing it as your own, regardless of whether or not the work is copyrighted or in the public domain. It is unethical to do so, and if a copyrighted work is involved it can also be an infringement of property rights. ... www.uspto.gov/web/offices/ac/ahrpa/opa/kids/kidantipiracy02.ht So your point is.......? You might would have a point if these were isolated incidents, but she's always biting off of other people and then acting like she created it. Just be real about it. What's so hard about that?

Of course stole the design,

Of course stole the design, just like she steals everything else. I finally got a chance to smell her Heat perfume at Walgreens today and it is a COMPLETE knockoff of another fragrance (I can't think of the name but it will come to me). She has built a career off of plagiarism from song writing, to clothes, and now perfume.

Maybe She should consult with her husband first as did Kimora when she started out with Baby Phat. Where is her business ethic coming from? I see why Jay is the smart one now. Is she educated about high fashion? Seriously! This is why HOD will continue to stay on the bargain rack.

as many other posters have

as many other posters have already commented that's the nature of the fashion industry. I actually work in fashion, and have for some years, and have never once seen a designer design something they just thought of from imagination. They go and do what's called 'inspiration shopping' and shop the market for looks that would fit the aesthetic they're going for and 'tweak' it or sometimes straight up copy the original...it is what it is, and frankly as tacky as HOD is, I dunno if I'd wanna be claiming she stole a tacky idea from me..but maybe that's just me..still love her tho =)

i don't know wat to say about

i don't know wat to say about the stealing idease thing. beyonce's name is always linked to it....either way looking at the cover of the mag im a bit confused. her hips are really big and stand out a lot in comparison to her. yet weve all seen her in a bathing suit.and those hips are not there. how does she do that? is it padding...or are clothes designed to accentuate her hips. she doesn't have those curves without her clothes on

I'm surprise anyone isn't

I'm surprise anyone isn't complaining about Beyonce's long straight blonde lace wig! I don't get it!!! But I go on the Kelly & Brandy Post that's all u females r going crazy about is them not wearing their "real" hair! It's sad... what a DBL standard! I luv Beyonce' as an entertainer & artist but her clothing line sucks! Her bottoms does look slightly different but I'm pretty sure she used the ones she brought to make these for her clothing line.

It kills me how Beyonce

It kills me how Beyonce always does the innocent smile, super straight hair and powder fresh-face for the white magazines but put her on Vibe or Essence and it's all curly lion's mane, parted lips and oiled up skin. The Dereon leggings seem to be slightly different but yeah she probably straight stole the idea. She steals songs, lyrics, clothing styles, everything and gets away with it so she probably feels entitled at this point. In those Dereon ads she even stole Woody Woodpecker's hairstyle, the woman doesn't stop.
