A Well Deserved Honor
“As long as I can remember, fashion has always been a part of my life,” shared Beyonce as she was honored with the Fashion Icon award. Standing in front of a who’s whos crowd of designers, TV stars and other celebrities she spoke with great emotion and sincerity. During her acceptance speech, Beyonce recounted how her grandmother had been a seamstress, and then passed that skill on to her mother.
“When we were starting out in Destiny’s Child, high-end labels, they didn’t really want to dress four black, country curvy girls,” she said. “And we couldn’t afford designer dresses and couture. My mother … used her talent and her creativity to give her children their dreams.”
Today, Beyonce has taken those gifts and become an international icon in music, film, business and now fashion.
