What a rocky week(end) it has been. Between the passing of Prince to Beyonce’s surprise release of her visual album, Lemonade, on Saturday night, we’ve all certainly been riding an emotional rollercoaster. With the world still mourning Prince, it seems natural that only an artist on par with the late musician could feasibly release an album this past weekend and remain relatively unscathed. Queen Bey did that and oh – so much more.
It’s safe to say that Beyoncé thoroughly broke the internet – and all previously-held expectations about what she is capable of and where she is headed in her musical career. Lemonade is a visual masterpiece and an emotional volcano, steadily bubbling into a full-on explosion, carrying you on its journey through themed chapters entitled “Denial,” “Anger,” and”Apathy” and settling into a coolly chilled pool of molten lava just in time for you to catch your breath. Centered around topics of infidelity, discrimination, heartache, love, and resilience, Lemonade is speaking to all women, especially African American, on the unknown power beneath silent suffering and the movement towards self-empowerment.
As Beyoncé twirls, belts, and destroys her way through the 60-minute mini-movie, no one can deny that the fashion she’s sporting creates an impactful visual that only solidifies her queendom. Bey is never one for subtlety and she struts her stuff in everything from Roberto Cavalli to Gucci to Yeezy Season 3. Here’s a rundown of some of the most drool-worthy looks to catch you up to speed.
