On Monday night Beyoncé glammed up in one of the most talked about looks of the night. She went for high drama at the Met Gala in a sheer, body revealing Givenchy Haute Couture gown. Last night however she played down the drama and went for a casual, simple look at a private book party at the home of Erica Reid and X Factor judge and music producer, Antonio ‘L.A’ Reid. Bey and hubby, Jay-Z were among the attendees, as well as Mary J. Blige and Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles. Check out some pics from the book soiree.
The book party was for Erica Reid’s parenting advice book The Thriving Child. This is the blurb about the book..
It took months of doctors visits and several illnesses for Erica Reid to uncover that her young son had multiple allergies and serious asthma. Her daughter, who had suffered from skin irritation since birth, was diagnosed with food allergies as well. Thus began a cautious, thoughtful journey to more doctors and led the author to totally re-vamp her family’s diet, “de-tox” her home, and, as her children grew older, coordinate healthy routines for school and travel. Along the way, Reid developed complementary child-rearing strategies promoting respect, responsibility, creativity, spiritual balance, and love. From heath and nutrition to discipline and spirituality, Reid schooled herself in every area that is part of creating a totally healthy environment in which a family can flourish. THE THRIVING CHILD also includes in-depth prescriptive advice from top experts, including doctors, and celebrity mothers.
I had no idea that Erica Reid was so thoughtful. I always liked her and L.A. This book sounds like it could be a great read for all moms and dads, and it’s gorgeous that new parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z showed their support for a book all about parenting. Yay for cool celebrity parents! P.s Beyoncé looks so gorgeous virtually makeup free in a simple dress. I loved her high drama Met Gala gown, but I love her like this even more.
