Beyoncé, Jay Z and Rachel Roy all in the same room?…hmm now isn’t that interesting? Weeks after fans of Beyoncé (beyhives) brutally attacked the fashion designer on social media when a post of hers suggested she was the ‘Becky with the good hair’ that Jay Z had an affair with, the trio happen to find themselves all in one space at the annual CFDA Awards which was held last night in New York City.
It was all positive vibes as Beyoncé was honoured with the 2016 Fashion Icon Award. During her acceptance speech she revealed….
”When we were starting out in Destiny’s Child, high-end labels they didn’t really 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 creativity to giver her children their dreams. My mother and my Uncle Johnny (God bless his soul) designed all of our 1st costumes and made each piece by hand, individually sewing hundreds of crystals and pearls, putting so much passion and love into every small detail. When I wore those clothes on stage I felt like Khaleesi. ”
She went on to say….
”To my mother, my uncle, my grandmother, thank y’all. Thank you for showing me that having a presence is far more than the clothes you wear and your physical beauty. Thank you for showing me to never take no for an answer. Thank you for showing me how to take risks, work hard and live life on my own terms.”
