Beyonce made a surprise appearance at the CFDAs on Monday night and unfortunately, the CFDA also invited Rachel Roy, the woman many people believe was the main “Becky with the Good Hair” reference in Bey’s Lemonade. AWKWARD. Honestly, Rachel is a designer and probably deserves to be there more than Bey, but if the Queen B shows up at your event, I guess you have to give her some kind of award (which she received, in a very large hat). Anyhow, when Bey showed up, Rachel made a BEY-line for the door. See what I did there?
Designer Rachel Roy grabbed her place card and left the starry CFDA Fashion Awards dinner before Beyoncé ever entered the room as the surprise recipient of the night’s Fashion Icon Award, sources said. At Monday’s CFDA gala, Roy arrived with model Candice Huffine, whom she dressed, and they posed together for pics on the red carpet. But as the gala began, rumors spread that Beyoncé might attend. One fashion writer tweeted, “Jay Z has just arrived . . . What could it mean?” Then Beyoncé’s daughter, Blue Ivy, and mom, Tina Knowles, showed up, essentially giving away the night’s Icon winner. Sister Solange was also rumored to be on the way, but didn’t materialize.
But Roy dashed before Beyoncé arrived onstage. “She disappeared with her place card and never came back,” said a source. It was “weird. I don’t know if it was because she’s ‘Becky,’ or what?” Another stunned source at the event said, “Rachel just came and left.” But a friend of Roy’s explained she exited the awards only because she had to catch an early flight the next day to be with her kids in LA.
No Beckys are allowed in the presence of the Beyonce, ya HEAR? I mean, this makes Rachel Roy seem like the guiltiest, most Beckiest becky out there, doesn’t it?!
