Hi all!

I just finished watching Beyonce's Coachella performance and I AM SHOOKETH! Jeez I felt that down in my spirit - like right in my shondo, my edges are gone, I nearly threw my slipper at my laptop how dare she be so good! I was like YYYAAASSS GET IT! Not only was her performance brilliant but she also made history as the first black woman to headline 'Coachella' in twenty years and I am here for every bit of this black excellence, and although I wasn't physically there, the performance was so electrifying I just felt inspired to do this illustration below.

I loved the whole production and how she referenced HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) sorority and fraternity culture, from the steppers, to the drumline, the musicians, the orchestra, the dancers, and when the young lady in the white came out twirling those batons I was like girl you better throw that in the air! I just felt so proud, and then I wanted to cry, because black culture is so rich, cool, effortless and there is something so special when they grace and command a stage, something magic happens. This here was hands down the best live performance I have ever seen, and when Solange and Destinys Child came out I damn near lost my mind, this was literally the definition of black girl magic.

The five costumes gave me life which were all custom made by Balmain. The 1st look gave us Egyptian goddess vibes with a heavily embellished cape and one piece, the 2nd look was regular everyday girl that we can all relate too with reference to the college hoodie, and a staple denim festival short paired with custom Christian Louboutin boots which moved and glistened underneath those glorious stage lights.

In conclusion, I feel inspired, honestly this performance was just simply mesmerising,  and how on earth Beyonce danced and sang for 2 hours and not one note was off key, NOT ONE! She really did not come to play! It was great to see the spotlight on so many talented individuals, it felt like team work, and it shows that greater things can be achieved in numbers, this was such a powerful statement and unapologetic in every way. I'm now going to find my denim booty shorts because I want to recreate this look - but first let me find my wig (if I had one) because this performance snatched me bald, they don't call her Queen Bey for no reason. :) xx
