Beyonce, Rachel Roy and Jay Z Were All in the Same Room for First Time Since 'Lemonade' at the CFDAs
By Zach Seemayer
Beyonce shined in the spotlight at this year's CFDA Fashion Awards, where she was honored with the Fashion Icon award. Her husband, Jay Z, their 4-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, and Beyonce's mother, Tina Knowles, all came out to share the moment with the "Formation" singer.
Roy's appearance at the celebrated award ceremony is the first time the 42-year-old designer -- who many believe is the inspiration for the scandalous “better call Becky with the good hair” lyric from the track "Sorry" -- has been at the same public function as Beyonce and Jay Z since Lemonade dropped in April.
And don’t worry, Beyhive — Beyonce and her adorable family couldn't be outshined by anyone or anything. After arriving an hour late to the venue, Blue Ivy promptly stole everyone's hearts with her adorableness. Waving to the cameras, the super cute preschooler is already on her way to being a media princess.
Beyonce and Jay Z avoided press attention by showing up after the red carpet had closed, but the pop superstar still posed for a few shots with her family in a shimmering, pin-striped suit and wide-brimmed black hat.
During the ceremony, the 34-year-old "Sandcastles" singer was presented the prestigious award by Diane von Furstenberg. Beyonce spoke about how it was her mother, Tina, who had sparked an interest in fashion after sewing her school uniforms as a kid, and later her prom dress and many of the costumes of Destiny's Child.
Beyonce dedicated the award to her mother, her grandmother and her uncle, sharing, "Thank you for showing me that having a presence is far more than the clothes you wear and your physical beauty." During her acceptance speech, Jay Z and Blue Ivy were seen beaming as they listened.
