It was pretty clear who the “real” star was when the R&B girl group Destiny’s Child hit the charts in the late 90s. So it was no surprise when Beyonce’s first solo album in ’06, B’Day, debuted at number one on the Billboard charts. Her third solo album in ’08, I Am… Sasha Fierce, earned her six Grammy Awards, breaking the record for most Grammy Awards won by a female artist in one night.  In fact, she is one of the most decorated Grammy artists with a total of 16 awards— 13 as a solo artist and 3 as a member of Destiny’s Child. Her successful acting career (she starred in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls and earned two Golden Globe noms) and her family’s fashion line, House of Deréon, complete the trifecta. Throw in her marriage to rap mogal Jay-Z and she tops the list of the most successful entertainers of the generation. Beyonce works chic Persol shades which come in three classic frame hues. This “Single Ladies” gal certainly knows how to get a man to “Put a Ring on It.”  –rpuccia
