Designers Beyoncé Made Famous

START

From a Givenchy gown at the Met Gala to a Gucci kimono courtside at an NBA All-Star game, Beyoncé is no stranger to luxury brands and custom couture looks. Throughout her 20+ years of stardom, the singer-songwriter has made headlines with jaw-dropping ensembles from almost every household name designer, and she’s done it while belting high notes, dancing for hours on end, and raising three children. What cemented the Queen B’s status as a fashion industry change maker, however, is her penchant for seeking out virtually unknown or up-and-coming designers. With help from a steadfast styling team that searches the planet for unique pieces, Beyoncé has been the first A-list client for many designers, accelerating the success and notoriety of smaller brands. She also encourages others to support rising labels through Black Parade, a directory of Black-owned businesses curated by her longtime stylist Zerina Akers and hosted on Bey’s own website. And what better publicity for a brand than an endorsement from Beyoncé, a star with 150 million Instagram followers and the confidence to make even a plastic bag look chic? On her 39th birthday, CR celebrates all the designers that Queen B made famous.
