Queen Bey has honored African Fashion designers in an Instagram post. At the 2018 Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg, Bey celebrated the continent’s fashion, legacy, and diversity through her outfits.
Beyoncé attended the 100th birthday of South African anti-Apartheid activist and former President, Nelson Mandela. The concert is also part of efforts by Global Citizen to end extreme poverty in the world.
Beyoncé Shines Light On African Fashion Designers
Oprah Winfrey, Trevor Noah, and Naomi Campbell were in attendance. In addition, guest artists included Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams and of course Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z.
Amongst her outfits, Beyonce wore a Quinteria George’s dress and a Mmuso Maxwell SS16 dress. Beyonce was also spotted with Jay Z in a fabulous outfit by South Africa’s Rich Mnisi. Queen Bey did not only limit herself to South African designers and equally donned an Adama Paris (Senegal) bag.
The superstar often rocks the Ankara print in her own unique way every once in a while. In fact, she not only rocks the print but slays with it just about every time. This time around was no exception!
After the Festival, Beyoncé gushed on Instagram, “Madiba, Johannesburg, and all of my African sisters and brothers, we hope we made you as proud as you all make us. South Africa was an extraordinary trip for me and my family. God bless.”
“Thank you to the talented African designers who kept me feeling fresh.” She went on. “Y’all go so hard.” She concluded. Yes indeed, we do go hard.
Over 7.1 BILLION dollars was raised to aid Global Citizen in its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty in the world.
