BEYONCE’S MATERNITY WEAR: Beyoncé Knowles may be one of the world’s most famous mothers-to-be, but that isn’t slowing her down in the fashion department. On Wednesday, she wore a blue sequined Roberto Cavalli dress, sequined blazer and black stilettos to a launch party for her third fragrance, Pulse, at the Dream Downtown Hotel. “This has been the best year of my life — I have the gift of life,” she said, patting her belly. While Knowles hasn’t confirmed a due date, sources speculate she’s due in late January or early February.

On Thursday, Knowles donned a long feathered jersey Lanvin number and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry for a personal appearance for Pulse at Macy’s Herald Square, where she met about 500 fans on the eighth floor, which was shut down for crowd control and had Knowles’ 16 Grammy Awards on display. The fans each had brief encounters, posing for pictures with the superstar, having earned the right by earlier buying a $140 four-piece fragrance set.
