Watch Beyonce shut down fashion’s distorted beauty standards, empower us all [VIDEO]
Earlier this week, legendary designer Diane Von Furstenberg presented Beyonce with the 2016 Fashion Icon award at this year’s CFDA Awards and not only did Bey look crazy fierce in a sparkly Givenchy pantsuit, but she also delivered a speech to end all speeches.

Shutting down the fashion industry’s distorted beauty standards and empowering us all, Beyonce thanked her mom, Tina Knowles, for making so many of her early costumes before plunging into a seriously body positive message.

“We have an opportunity to contribute to a society where any girl can look at a billboard or magazine cover and see her own reflection,” she began. “Soul has no color. No shape. No form. Just like all your work, it goes so far beyond what the eyes can see. You have the power to change perception, to inspire and empower, to show people how to embrace their complications and flaws and see the true beauty that’s inside all of us.” 

PREACH, BEYONCE! PREACH! And this is why she’s the queen of our universe. Is it too much to ask for Bey for president?
