Nobody but the Queen Bey can do it like she does with grace, confidence and comfort with no need to flaunt putting everyone around her at ease even though she upstages them all. Still it’s a beautiful thing to see others acknowledge and give her her props including her proud hubby Jay-Z who bowed to her.
Tuesday Beyoncé was presented with the Fashion Icon Award by CFDA chair Diane von Furstenberg. Never predictable except, always perfectly coiffed from head to toe, she did not disappoint.
Dressed in a sparkling pinstriped suit made just for her by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, she was as always, comfortable in her skin and the suit appeared an extension of her persona. Paired with it was a feminine laced edwardian collared body suit.
Beyonce owned it all, the suit, the attention and the Fashion Icon Award. Somehow she managed to wear the suit most would have been lost in behind its brilliance. Styled more like a suit Michael Jackson wore in his “Smooth Criminal” video, yet the fabric was reminiscent of the outfit he wore in his “Rock With You,” video toned down and conservative comparatively but it brought the blink grabbing attention and held all eyes on her.
