This week, Beyoncé and Jay Z made headlines with their 22-day pledge to eat a “plant-based diet,” going vegan, organic, and gluten-free, as advocated by health guru Marco Borges.

Faux Leather Dress With Lace ($80) in Black
Zara has an awesome selection of faux-leather frocks, and we’re pretty sure Beyoncé would kill it in this lace-trimmed sheath for a dinner out with their buds Gwyneth and Chris.
“Young hova/Ya'll know when the flow is loco/Young b and the r-o-c uh oh/O-G, big homie/The one and only,” “Crazy in Love,” Beyoncé feat. Jay-Z

Thanks to Beyoncé’s instagram, we’re lucky enough to see the fashion progression of her little Mini Me. When they’re not rocking their matching Timbs, these sweet shoes are the perfect ladylike match.
“Boy you know you love it how we're smart enough to make these millions/Strong enough to bear the children then get back to business… Who run the world? Girls.” – “Who Run the World? (Girls),” Beyoncé

One Lucky Duck creator Sarma Melngailis is the master of vegan-friendly, raw food. Their cashews are a delicious snack. Also an office fave? LA’s culty Kombucha drink of the moment, Health-Ade probiotic tea. No doubt Jay Z and Beyoncé will be ordering it by the case—even after their pledge ends!
“I’m so far ahead of my time; I’m ‘bout to start another life/ Look behind you, I’m bout to pass you twice.” -“Hovi Baby,” Jay Z

Behati Clutch ($138) in Red
This faux fur clutch is made from surplus fabrics (savvy chic!), and it’s perfect with jeans and a white tee or for a night out. (Bonus: Yankees cap tip to power couple People magazine’s Sexiest Man Adam Levine and Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo.)
“What’s yo age? That’s the question they ask when I hit the stage. I’m a diva, best believe her.” “Diva,” Beyoncé

Alpaca Open Front Cape ($225) in Wheat/Indigo
Alternative Apparel worked with the Sustainable Alpaca Network Paromarca to design this chic colorblock piece. We assume Blue has got moves like her mama, so this cape is easy to throw on when you’re running around NYC chasing an active toddler.
“Yeah I'm out that Brooklyn, now I'm down in TriBeCa/Right next to Deniro, but I'll be hood forever/I'm the new Sinatra, and since I made it here/I can make it anywhere, yeah, they love me everywhere.” –“Empire State of Mind,” Jay Z feat. Alicia Keys

Perry Overdyed Organic Denim Jacket ($250) in Blue
The power couple doesn’t shy away from double denim (see their recent date at La Petite Maison De Nicole in Paris). This organic denim jacket is a perfect style match for Jay’s love of a perfect jean jacket.

Little Blue can flaunt her namesake color with the sweet stars on this super cute Aden + Anais—a favorite brand for moms in the know—organic muslin blanket.
“Get ready for part two/ A younger, smarter, faster me/So a pinch of Hov, a whole glass of B. Glory, yeah. The most amazing feeling I feel/Words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real/Baby, I paint the sky blue/My greatest creation was you.” “Glory,” Jay Z feat. Blue Ivy

Ten percent of the sales from this collection goes to Doctors Without Borders, so in addition to looking like a rock star, you’re giving back!

Roots Rose Radish
This 100% natural body butter is smooth skin central. After all, we’ve never seen Bey or Jay ever appear in public looking anything but paparazzi-picture-perfect.
“Paparazzi spots me in the lobby of my high-rise/I hide behind my shades/Cause the fame is blinding my eyes.” – “Hollywood,” Jay Z feat. Beyoncé

Perforated Vegan Leather Bomber ($98) in White/Black
This two-tone vegan leather bomber is, well, the bomb.
