NEW YORK — Isabel wasn’t the only force of nature to be tracked by fashion-lovers last week. Beyoncé blazed her trail through the Bryant Park tents, sending everyone into a whirl.
So why the sudden interest in fashion? Sure, you could make an argument that since she’s a wiser 22, she can start making style decisions for herself. (But mom and stylist, Tina, was there with her every step of the way.) Or you could say that she stopped in at the Baby Phat and Rosa Cha shows to lend a clapping hand and a few woo-hoos in support of some designers who have their hands in the fashion and music worlds.
