Beyonce may run the world, but her mom calls the shots, sometimes.
According to mom Tina Knowles, even on her wedding day Beyoncé ended up in a gown she wasn’t totally delighted by, but she was too nice to tell the designer, AKA TINA. Which is kind of sweet on one hand, but sad on the other. I don’t know what gave Tina so much fashion clout- all her Destiny’s Child costumes were hideous and House of Dereon? Is that even a thing anymore? People reports:
While the rest of the world clamors over any glimpse they can get of the dress Bey wore on her big day, from the sound of things, the pop star is so over it. Though she married Jay Z in 2008, dress details were kept under wraps until the 2011 video for “I Was Here,” which gave fans a quick glimpse of the star’s elaborately tiered and ruffled strapless gown. Lawson can be seen doing some last minute alterations to the dress she designed as Beyoncé beams at the camera. (She shared another peek at it in the “Young Forever/Halo” video, which you can see at 2:34 below.)
Talking to the Today show on June 24 about designing her daughter’s gown, Lawson said, “She was so sweet to let me do that. She came back later one day and she said, ‘You know, when my daughter gets married, I’m going to let her pick out her own dress.’ Maybe she wasn’t so excited about it at the time, but she’s a sweetheart.”
Maybe when you’re Beyonce and you wear awesome stuff all the time, one wedding dress isn’t a big deal? Or she just care more about her mom’s happiness than her own? Either way, poor, sweet Bey. At least she looks great in pretty much everything.
