…and fashion’s role in her life

It was no surprise superstar Beyoncé took home the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Award last night in New York City and joined the ranks of past winners including Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Pharrell. After all, Bey is one of the most stylish women on the planet. But it was her award acceptance speech that revealed just how big a role fashion plays in her life. The star acknowledged her seamstress grandmother who sewed clothes for the priests and nuns and made the uniforms for the students in exchange for her mother’s Catholic school education. And, she called out how her mother designed her wedding dress, prom dress and Destiny’s Child costumes when, as she noted in her speech, “high-end labels didn’t really want to dress four Black, country, curvy girls…” Wearing a Givenchy crystal-studded pantsuit accessorized with a Lemonade-worthy wide-brimmed hat, Beyoncé called out the true power of fashion: “It’s a tool for finding your own identity, expression and strength.”
