So reckless when she rocks her Givenchy suit…

Clearly fashion critics agree as Beyonce made a surprise appearance at this years CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards tonight to be honoured with the Fashion Icon award.

Beyonce struck a bold figure in a bedazzled pinstripe suit and her oversized Formation hat, which she also wears for the opening act of her tour every other night and rocked in the 6 Inch video.

Quashing any continued speculation that her marriage to rapper Jay Z is on the rocks, Bey also walked the red carpet with her family:

During her acceptance speech, which can be viewed HERE, Beyonce spoke of her history with fashion, dating back to her grandmother’s work as a seamstress and her mother’s design of Destiny’s Child’s stage costumes, as well as her experience with the racist side of the fashion industry:


“High end labels…they didn’t really want to dress four black country, curvy girls. We couldn’t afford designer clothes. My mother was rejected from every showroom in New York. But like my grandmother, she used her talent and creativity to give her children their dreams.”

Beyonce continues her Formation Tour tomorrow in New York.
