Beyoncé Dresses Up As Queen Nefertiti For New Spring Clothing Line
Beyoncé has revealed her latest project for her Beyhive to indulge upon -- a new merchandise line featuring an iconic historical leader.
Queen Nefertiti 101
For her latest fashion line, the "Daddy's Lessons" singer-songwriter transformed into Queen Nefertiti, whom historians contend was revered as a goddess by the Egyptian people. She and Pharaoh Akhenaten ruled Egypt in 14th century B.C. and brought about a religious revolution for worshiping only one god. Queen Nefertiti also arguably ruled over the kingdom after the death of her husband.
Beyoncé's royal regalia includes five pieces of clothing. The white cropped t-shirt is the only piece of clothing that showcases a colored photo of the "Best Thing I Never Had" singer channeling the Egyptian ruler.
Beyoncé wore a golden crown shaped like Queen Nefertiti's and had four of her long fingernails painted gold. If fans look closely, Beyoncé is wearing some mouth jewelry.
Yahoo! News also showcased an orange t-shirt that had nine images of the singer in various poses. The piece of black clothing that is part of the singer's Nefertiti collection is a black hooded sweatshirt. The main photo on the sweatshirt is a photo of Beyoncé holding her headpiece.
Visiting Target With Blue Ivy
Prior to the announcement of this collection, social media melted down when Beyoncé took her daughter, Blue Ivy, to a Target store in Los Angeles on March 25. Lucky fans spotted the "If I Were A Boy" singer and her oldest daughter surrounded by a bodyguard, an assistant, and one full cart. A Target employee named Ana posted the photo on Twitter.
No Twins Sighting
While Blue Ivy Carter is popping across the internet and social media, fans are not likely to see the music superstar with her twins anytime soon. Sources close to the Carter camp revealed that both she and husband Jay-Z decided to leave both 9-month-old Rumi and Sir Carter at home. The Carters are also not expected to show the twins to the world on Instagram anytime soon.
'On The Run II' Preparations
Earlier this March, the Carters traveled to Jamaica for a vacation. While the couple was on the island nation, the duo filmed promotional clips for their eagerly anticipated tour, On The Run II. Trench Town residents were shocked to see the two stars ride a motorcycle through town. While Jay-Z did not interact with the fans, Beyoncé took in their admiration and blew them kisses.
Blue Ivy's Bidding War
Meanwhile, Blue Ivy Carter turned heads when she attended the Wearable Art Gala with her parents on March 17. The couple's 6-year-old daughter stole the evening when she entered a bidding war with Tyler Perry for a painting of actor Sidney Poitier. After she bid $19,000, Jay-Z playfully took her paddle away.
