Beyoncé accepts CDFA Fashion Icon Award onstage during the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
“Beyonce in Givenchy” sounds like the mega-upscale version of Bananas in Pajamas.
And with that bit of brain farting out of the way, it’s time for us to do Miss Bey a solid after years of bitching about her style choices. She looks fucking fabulous. And even better – in fact, best of all – she didn’t fall into her normal style trap of “Hot Diva.”
Oh sure, she looks hot here. We’d be fools to argue otherwise. But for the majority of her career, Bey has defined her hotness (and in turn herself) through some fairly pedestrian and played-out style choices, i.e., big hair and tight dresses. That was always the look and she rarely deviated from it (except when she goes the big-hair-and-bodysuit route). It’s great to see her in such a chic and fabulous suit. And we suspect there’s more than a little bit of a Prince homage going on here. If that’s the case, we salute her even more for not being literal about it a la Madonna.
As far as we’re concerned, this is the most stylish thing she’s ever worn. You WERQ that suit, Bey.
