Beyonce And Family Attend CFDA Awards

This year’s CFDA award ceremony featured a big surprise, kept tightly under wraps until after the show’s conclusion — Beyonce was honored with the 2016 Fashion Icon Award:

While accepting the recognition for her influential style, Bey detailed how her style journey came full circle, from her seamstress grandmother to her aspiring designer mother, and developing a unique style due to lack of style opportunity given a group of young Black singers just starting out:

“As long as I can remember, fashion has always been a part of my life. Its effect on me actually started before I was born. Most of you guys don’t know this, but my grandmother was a seamstress…”

“When we were starting out in Destiny’s Child, high-end labels, they didn’t want to dress four black, country, curvy girls. And we couldn’t afford designer dresses and couture. My mother was rejected from every showroom in New York. But like my grandmother, she used her talent and her creativity to give her children their dreams.”

“[My mother] designed all of our first costumes and made each piece by hand…putting so much passion and love into every small detail,” she said. “When I wore these clothes on stage I felt like [Game of Thrones’ queen] Khaleesi; I had an extra suit of armor. It was so much deeper than any brand name.”

How far she’s come! The songstress arrived to accept her award while rocking a sparkly pinstripe suit, $9 million in Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and the extremely wide-brimmed black hat that’s become synonymous with her Lemonade look:
