Unless you've been living under a rock the past few days, you've heard about Lemonade. And no I'm not talking about the shockingly refreshing beverage, I'm talking about Beyoncé's latest artistic masterpiece (although also shockingly refreshing).
In this full length visual album, Beyonce describes the 11 stages of grief, starting with a period of questioning her relationship and later, the realization that Jay-z has been cheating on her. Yes, this is an artistic creation that could be completely fabricated, but let's be honest, that's not Beyoncé's style. Not only is the album incredible raw and personal lyrically, but it's also visually stunning.
One of my favorite songs (and scenes) is "Hold Up". Beyoncé, sporting a GORGEOUS Roberto Cavalli mustard-colored gown, prances through town, yielding a baseball bat and destroying everything in her path. She smashes a fire hydrant, cars, security camera, etc., all while rocking a devilish smile and looking fierce per usual.
Just the fact that she's walking around in this stunning gown and five inch heels, climbing on cars as fire explodes around her, encapsulates what makes Beyoncé Beyoncé. She has made crazy look good and has taken complete control over her narrative during a time that is incredibly difficult to do so.
I could go on and on for hours about this but in the interest of getting to the point, I'll wrap it up. This gorgeous dress had me dreaming of mustard...mustard couches, mustard jackets, mustard pants, dijon mustard...you get the idea. Check out some images that are inspiring me below...
