SINCE giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir some four months ago, Beyoncé has been slowly raising her profile. A basketball game here, a concert there. Not to mention the personal photoshoots that were designed to keep her 107 million Instagram followers in the loop.
Then last night happened. The popstar attended the annual Tidal x Brooklyn charity concert wearing a bespoke emerald Walter Mendez gown and furry plum wrap. The figure-skimming silk design with plunging neckline and deep thigh-slit is a silhouette she knows well, after attending Rihanna’s Diamond Ball in a similar forest-green gown by House of CB.
For her husband Jay-Z’s benefit at the Barclays Centre, Bey went custom, and it showed. The audience might have been watching performers Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled and Cardi B, but the photographers’ lenses were on the new mother. With a sparkly Alexander Wang x Judith Leiber clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery – those disco-ready danglers! – completing her head-turning get-up, this was Sasha Fierce back with a bang.
