Photo: Matteo Prandoni/BFAnyc.com 

Beyoncé has released a new 10 minute short film covering fame, feminism, and her personal life in “Yours and Mine”. The film, which marks the one year anniversary of the Beyoncé album drop, combines new and old video footage as Beyoncé discusses her humanist life-view.

Whether you’re a card-carrying Bey-Hive member or not, the film makes for a genuine and reflective look on what it means to be human, complete with beautiful production value and even some footage of Beyoncé dancing (thank God).

Check it out below for your end-of-week dose of Queen Bey wisdom.

If Fine Leather Goods Had a Sound, This Would Be It

Mitch Alfus’s company, Libra Leather, is the go-to source for exotic leather and skins for the city’s top designers — everyone from Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren, Phillip Lim and more go to Libra Leather for the goods. It’s about time, then, that he opened up a store of his own for us to peruse. From November 20th until the end of January, you can check out Libra Leather Home pop-up in Tribeca to shop everything from homeware, men’s and women’s accessories, and even skateboards and bicycles.

To celebrate the opening of the pop-up, Alfus put together a playlist just for us that represents the different moments of his life and define who he is as a person today. Listen in, below.

Libra Leather Home opens with a celebratory bang on November 20th from 7-10 p.m., and will be open through the end of January from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Libra Leather Home is located at 72 Franklin Street.

Glow with the Flow: Hot Yoga for the Raver in All of Us

Photo: Amy Taub

Hot yoga is not always fun. I know it’s supposed to be good for getting into those bendy yoga positions, and sweating out toxins is always a good thing, but it can get a little stifling, to say the least.

Glow with the Flow yoga at Pure Yoga is the gateway class for getting into hot yoga. The studio space is filled with black lights, and slow-tempo house music plays throughout the session. Yogis are provided neon bracelets or even neon body paint to make the class that much more fun. Maybe I’m still in my rave phase and/or easily distracted by pretty lights, but I actually enjoyed the class and got a great work-out.

Of course, you have to wear something fun to a class like this. White or light colors that will glow with black light are a must. Leggings by Onzie and Candida Maria are super comfy and come in dozens of wild prints. They’re also incredibly light-weight–perfect for an hour-long hot yoga session. We decided to pair our over-the-top leggings with more basic sleeveless tops that would allow for a graceful hot yoga sweating process. We chose tried-and-true Lululemon and Athleta tops for a similarly light-weight and airy feel. Check ’em out below.

Coco Rocha Schools Seth Meyers in the Art of Posing

Photo: David X Prutting/BFAnyc.com

Coco Rocha stopped by “Late Night with Seth Meyers” to give him a bit of schooling on the art of posing. In promotion of her new book, A Study of Pose, Rocha and Meyers took suggestions from the audience to reenact some of the 1,000 poses from the book.

The poses, which are only given numbers next to the pictures, were given new names like “Sexy Jump to Grab the Last Apple” and “The Gym’s Not Really Working,” by Meyers. “We made [the poses] numbers so people like you would give them names!” Rocha said.

Personally, I think this sounds like a fun fashion drinking game to try out. Check out the video below!
