Seemingly incapable of blending in, Beyonce Knowles rocked an edgy look while squeezing in a little shopping endeavor on April 28 in Vienna, Austria before continuing on her world concert tour. At first glance, this is classic Beyonce style: edgy "Cage" boots by YSL, cuffed destroyed J Brand Zombie 912 skinny jeans (try cuffing Tag Jean's 5 Pocket Bootcut Jean in Super Bleach in the same super light shade), and a loose racerback tank (check out Smitten's Wrinkle Racer Back Tank in Silver). A studded white bag (I adore CC Skye's Lucy Bag in White), silver chain belt, huge hoop earrings (try Circadian Studio's Gold Double Circle Hoop Earrings in Gold) and a funky fedora hat further define B's signature style. Now look closer: is it really Beyonce? Apparently as part of some sort of massive prank, an Austrian radio station sent a Beyonce look-a-like to wander around the city shopping and sightseeing on the same day as her concert. They even called the renowned Albertina Art Museum in the capital pretending to be B's assistant and set up a special VIP tour, which the look-a-like attended and fooled everyone. The radio station came out to apologize for the out-of-control joke after reports that B hired a body double to stand in for her so she could go browse the racks got back to the museum. The spokeswoman for the offended museum told the press: "What a cheek. We were a little doubtful yesterday, but weren't really sure. It could have been her." Or it could not! The one thing that makes me pause is the hair, especially the blonde streaks at the front. We all know B loves to switch up her hairpieces, but she hasn't gone this curly in quite some time. What do you think - did the paps snap the real B or her just look-a-like shopping in designer duds here?
