Hey guys, I hope your week has been going really well. I know most of you will know CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) awarded Beyoncé a Fashion icon.
Immediately I heard this, I’m like the CFDA should know better. Beyoncé is no fashion icon. When we’re talking about a fashion icon, we’re not just talking about someone who goes out and slays, we’re talking someone who doesn’t just slay but also set trends. Like a dress is on a celebrity today and then everyone wants to have that dress, then you begin to see knockoffs everywhere. We’re talking people who have become muses for designers, people who inspire the general world of fashion. See how the yeezy boost 350 took over last year and how Rihanna’s Puma x Fenty is having everyone talking.
When we talk about fashion icons we’re talking Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and the likes, not Beyoncé. Beyoncé does know how to slay and turn our heads and all that but she is not a fashion icon.
