Beauty is work of hair stylists Neal Farinah and Nakia Rachonm, and makeup artist Sir John. Set design courtesy of Happy Massee at Lalaland, with production from Benjamin Bonnet at Westy Productions. Tailoring by Tim White.
“The more I mature, the more I understand my value. I realized I had to take control of my work and my legacy because I wanted to be able to speak directly to my fans in an honest way. I wanted my words and my art to come directly from me. There were things in my career that I did because I didn’t understand that I could say no. We all have more power than we realize.” – Beyonce for ELLE
