The 34-year-old superstar acknowledged her family while accepting the Fashion Icon Award at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City.
Beyoncé sparkled in a pinstriped Givenchy suit and a wide-brimmed black hat straight from her The Formation World Tour as she accepted the award from fellow fashion icon Diane von Fürstenberg.

‘My mother and my Uncle Johnny, God bless his soul, designed all of our first costumes and made each piece by hand, individually sewing hundreds of crystals and pearls, putting so much passion and love into every small detail,’ Beyoncé said during her acceptance speech.
‘When I wore these clothes on stage I felt like Khaleesi. I had an extra suit of armor,’ she said in reference to the ambitious royal Daenerys Targaryen, otherwise known as Mother Of Dragons, played by Emilia Clarke on the hit HBO fantasy drama.
Beyoncé – who accessorised with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry – noted that her mother Tina Knowles, 62, was in the audience and staunchly supported her early in her career along with her ‘Uncle Johnny, God bless his soul’ and her grandmother.
‘My mother actually designed my wedding dress, my prom dress, my first CFDA Awards dress, my first Grammy dress, and the list goes on and on and this to me is the true power and potential of fashion,’ Beyoncé said.

The CFDAs took place in New York last night and of course it was a very glamorous affair.
The night is all about fashion so the red carpet was awash with industry heavyweights and high end designer names. From Alexa Chung in Prabal Gurung to Karlie Kloss in Rosie Assoulin and Jourdan Dunne in Jonathan Simkhai and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Michael Kors Collection, it gave the Met Gala a run for its money.
And check out Beyonce who won the Icon Award, looking as cool as ever in a look first seen on the Givenchy Menswear Spring 2016 catwalk. We love a bit of embellishment; it’s the easiest way to give your outfit some glitz, but this tailored blazer and trousers gives it modern edge too.
Sadly this ensemble isn’t available online but we have found some sparkling blazers that’ll do the trick and you can find them in our edit below. From Edun to Miss Selfridge. There’s one for every budget.
