How to Vacation Like Beyoncé and Jay-Z

by Remi Remijan

When you're gifted and famous on the sort of megastar scale that results in god-like nicknames derived from Hebrew (that's Hova to the uninitiated), and have producer, director, and starring-in credits for your auto-biographical television documentary on your resume (that's Life is But a Dream to those without HBO), sometimes you really need to unwind. And from the looks of things, no one knows how to vacation--or take a government-sanctioned cultural trip--like Beyoncé and Jay-Z. So we analyzed the holiday habits of one of the world's most-watched couples, from their yachting escapades off the coast of Cap d'Antibes to their "diplomatic business" in Cuba, in a bid to steal their glamorous vacay style. domaine-title

  • FLOR DE LAS ANITILLIAS TORO GORDO CIGARS
  • You know what people who are allowed to go to Cuba say: "When in Cuba..." We'll live vicariously with this top-rated, Cigar Aficionado-endorsed Nicaraguan answer to the country's beloved export.
  • From $42, Thompson Cigar
  • SNAKESKIN LAPTOP SKIN
  • File this one under Stars Are Just Like Us: They protect their laptops with blingy skins around their In 'N' Out Burgers! Of course, they also eat said burgers with sparkling rosé on tables set with orchid centerpieces. 
  • $25, Society 6
  • LEZARD BEACH TOWEL
  • Why settle for a cotton beach towel without a Louis Vuitton lizard print when you can have one with one? It's pretty simple.
  • $635, Louis Vuitton

  • HOT BUTTERED OCTOBLADE FINS
  • We were surprised to discover that Beyoncé doesn't turn into a mermaid when she hits the water--hence, the flippers. Rock a pair of these and you're that much closer to pop stardom.  
  • $50, City Beach Australia
  • WHEELMAN AND COMPANY GOLDMAN KOOZIE
  • Wealthy people and beer koozies don't necessarily go together. Unless, of course, you front-load that sentence with "leather embossed," in which case we know a couple of music superstars with a love for cold bevvies who we think would be very interested. 
  • $25, Raiment
  • MERINO WOOL SERAPE
  • Did B pick up her handmade blanket in Tulum, or was it at that cute spot on Abbot Kinney Gwyneth tipped her off to? Who can remember? 
  • $395, Surfing Cowboys

  • STELA 9 VENTURA BACKPACK
  • We have a hunch this is what Sasha Fierce's version of backpacking is. Throw your fancy beer koozie and organic baby food (for Blue) in this metal coin and bead embellished bag and you're good to go.  
  •  $128, Free People
  • DIANA F+ CAMERA
  • The Carters look good in saturated filter mode. Correction: they look good in everything mode, but everyone looks good in this Lomographic saturated filter mode. 
  • $89, Lomography
  • CLASSIC CAR RENTAL
  • Just because Mr. and Mrs. C are out of town, doesn't mean they drive the sort of thing any old anyone would drive. Tee-up your own set of pastel-tinted hot wheels wherever you go, with a classic car rental service.
  • Classic Car Rental Connection
