Gushing over her daughter’s wardrobe, Mama Tina Knowles described one of Beyonce’s looks as “a Balmain masterpiece.”
‘Pretty on fleek’ isn’t just a lyric for Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, it’s a daily embodiment for the Queen Bey and mother of three.
Whether it’s Beychella in the Palm Springs desert or the 100thanniversary celebrating Nelson Mandela’s legacy in South Africa, when Mrs. Carter she slays a stage, it’s ‘Flawless.’
Over the weekend, while the world was watching the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show, citizens of South Africa were treated to a special OTR II concert by none other than Bey and hubby Jay Z, as part of their Global Citizen Festival– Mandela 100 show.
With her return to the stage, the superstar diva gave us with multiple fashion looks that rivaled her already-stunning costumes from this year’s OTR II tour. Reflecting on one of Beyonce’s earlier visits to the continent, her mother Tina Knowles-Lawson designed a special dress for the occasion.
“I had 45 minutes to put this dress together,” Knowles-Lawson said of the dress. “It was nothing but God.”
46664 was the prison number for Mr. Nelson Mandela It was also the name of the fundraiser benefit concert that Beyoncé had the honor of performing in 14 years ago in Cape Town South Africa. Before the finale which she went out with Mr. Mandela on stage we decided two hours before The finale with Mr Mandela, that she should have an authentic African fabric dress. Ty Hunter and me ran to the local market found this fabric fought traffic and drove back . now I had 45 minutes to put this dress together, it was nothing but God taking over because I got on the floor of that tent and cut out the dress free hand Got on a little stool with a small sewing machine and made the dress in 45 minutes by the grace of God it fit her perfectly we took whatever fabric that was left and did a quick head wrap. It was a glorious day for us because meeting this great man was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.I cried that day and the day we visited the prison he was in for 27 years of his life. He had not a bitter word for anyone that day ! I was amazed at his gentle kindness! Today global citizen is celebrating the awesome Madiba once again at Mandela 100 ! And Beyoncé is performing in his honor with her Husband Jay -Z in OTR II We are so humbled and honored to be here today in South Africa again❤️❤️❤️
Among this weekend’s array of outfits were an embellished, floral-print bodysuit that represented 54 African countries, a sleeveless mini-dress that incorporated thousands of African handbeads, and a feather-sleeved, hieroglyphic-print top paired with hot-shorts designed by Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing—a piece which Mama Tina describes as a, “Balmain masterpiece.”
