Tina Knowles Says Beyonce 'Maybe Wasn't So Excited' About Her Wedding Dress
By Jackie Willis
Tina Knowles has been making Beyonce's clothes since her daughter went to prom, but she just recently learned that Queen Bey may not have been thrilled about all of her mother's creations.
The 62-year-old designer spoke with Today show co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford about making some of Beyonce's most important getups, including her first GRAMMY gown and her wedding dress in 2008. "She was so sweet to let me do that," Knowles said.
However, it doesn't look like she'll be making granddaughter Blue Ivy's wedding dress. "[Beyonce] came back later one day and said, 'You know, when my daughter gets married, I'm gonna let her pick out her own dress,'" Tina shared. "Oh, maybe she wasn't so excited about it at the time, but she's a sweetheart."
Tina's interview on Today aired on Friday, the same day that her youngest daughter, Solange Knowles, turned 30. The proud mother posted a flashback photo of Solange and Beyonce in a kiddie pool together, and penned a sweet message for the birthday girl.
"This is Solange's 3rd birthday party, we created a huge bootleg water world with slip and slides and pools everywhere. She had a Micheal Jackson impersonator! She thought he was really Michael, because he came in a limo! It was soo fun," Tina captioned the pic. "Now my baby has turned 30! This seems like yesterday. Happy Birthday my baby. Look how she is already pointing the toe."
After Solange got married in November 2014 to Alan Ferguson, Tina again gushed over her daughters to ET and revealed that she was ready for another grandchild. "I got two boys and a girl. Couldn't ask for better than that," she said. "But when it comes to a sibling for Blue Ivy: I'm always ready for more grandbabies."
