Beyonce Wins Fashion Icon Award at 2016 CFDA Awards Suprising Fans With Her Heartfelt Speech


Music and Fashion diva, Beyonce looked flawless in a shimmery men-inspired monochrome suit as she accepted the CFDA Awards Fashion Icon Award winner from CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg, who introduced her as "today's biggest superstar".

The gorgeous attire features a sparkle-encrusted pinstriped Givenchy suit that she expertly styled with a black top, Lorraine Schwartz diamonds, a black wide-brim hat and black peep-toe platforms.


Her speech following the acceptance of the award was very inspiring and heartfelt:
"As long as I can remember, fashion has always been a part of my life. Its effect on me actually started before I was born. Most of you guys don’t know this but my grandmother was a seamstress. My grandparents did not have enough money and could not afford my mother’s Catholic school tuition, so my grandmother sewed clothes for the priests and the nuns, and made uniforms for the students in exchange for my mother’s education. She then passed this gift down to my mother and taught her how to sew," she started.


"When we were starting out in Destiny’s Child, high-end labels didn’t really want to dress four black, country, curvy girls. And we couldn’t afford designer dresses and couture. My mother was rejected from every showroom in New York. But like my grandmother, she used her talent and creativity to give her children their dreams. My mother and my Uncle Johnny, God bless his soul, designed all of our first costumes and made each piece by hand, individually sewing hundreds of crystals and pearls, putting so much passion and love into ever small detail. When I wore these clothes on stage I felt like Khaleesi. I had an extra suit of armor. It was so much deeper than any brand name"
