Our chat fest with Beyoncé and Tina Knowles went into overtime and we couldn’t fit the whole info-packed interview in the magazine. So here’s more of what this dynamic mother/daughter fashion team had to say about their hip clothing line. Plus, Tina’s styling tips.

COSMO: How did your House of Dereon line come to be?
BEYONCÉ: My fans kept asking where they could get clothes like Destiny’s Child’s, so it was only natural for us to do a clothing line. I was adamant about not putting my name on something that I didn’t love. I wanted to make sure it was true and honest and really something that we designed.

COSMO: Do you design with your daughter’s style in mind?
TINA: The dresses definitely reflect Beyoncé’s taste and style.

COSMO: What’s most important to you when designing something with your name behind it?
BEYONCÉ: I’m adamant about fit. I’ve worn dresses from all different price ranges, and the thing that couture dresses have in common is that the fit is amazing.

COSMO: Does your music inspire the designs?
BEYONCÉ: Definitely. I always talk about fashion in my lyrics. The clothes aren’t made for the stage, but they’re made for women who want to feel like superstars and have eyes on them when they walk into a room.

COSMO: Have you ever had a wardrobe malfunctions on stage?
BEYONCÉ: I recently fell down the stairs because my heel got caught in the hem of my coat. But really, I’ve fallen down the stairs a lot of times, so I can’t only blame it on the coat! TINA: Remember the time, you were maybe 15, I had you in those really tall platforms and you fell? You got right back up like it was a turn, and nobody knew.
