Beyoncé’s entire British Vogue December 2020 spread is spectacular and full of custom outfits, but her Christopher John Rogers gown is a legendary moment all on its own. To celebrate the release of her intimate interview with editor in chief, Edward Enniful, the singer released photos taken by the talented Kennedi Carter on Nov. 1, including an image of the original dress. You can find my jaw fully on the floor after catching a glimpse.
“When the legends call, you answer,” the designer wrote on Instagram, along with behind-the-scenes photos of the outfit. “Dripping in contoured, bias-cut, 4-ply silk crepe and 10 yards of satin faced silk organza, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter in a custom #ChristopherJohnRogers evening frock in Crawfish for the December 2020 issue of British Vogue.”
Christopher John Rogers isn’t new to the fashion scene by any means, but you’ll likely recognize some of his more recent designs on celebrities like Zendaya, Ashley Graham, and Lizzo, to just name a few. Bold and beautiful constructions are his forté, and who better to show off this gown than Queen Bey herself? Get a closer look at his creation, below, as well as Beyoncé’s cover ensemble.
