Beyoncé Gets “Style Savvy” With Nintendo
You can catch Beyoncé playing Style Savvy, the Nintendo fashion-orientated video game that turns players into managers of a virtual boutique.
“Fashion is something I’ve been familiar with my whole life,” she said in an interview before the shoot.
A commercial featuring the superstar playing the game will air soon on Nickelodeon.
Although Style Savvy was introduced last November, for the portable Nintendo DS and DSi systems, Beyoncé’s involvement is resulting in her Deréon line being featured in the game early this year.
Five fall 2009 items from one of our top DJPremium.com brands, Charlotte Ronson, are currently available for download.
As stated on USAToday.com, “The game allows aspiring entrepreneurs to choose from 16 fictional designer labels, each with a different style and price point, and more than 10,000 items. The goal is to accommodate customers’ budgets and needs, then use the accumulated cash to restock your stores, bearing in mind such factors as seasonal changes”.
“It can teach young girls a sense of business and of responsibility,” Beyoncé says. “You have to be a good listener and pay attention to what the customers want. It also teaches you about fashion, using terms that fashion people use, like ‘asymmetrical.’ ”
“It will be fun,” she says. “The clothes in the game are great, so cute and detailed, and there’s always something new. It’s like playing dress-up, only with digital technology instead of dolls.”
Up to four players can hook up wirelessly for a runway contest. After participating in this competition with a few of her friends, she was told she still has “a long way to go”!
