Interpreting the phases of fashion in Beyonce’s “Lemonade” Part 4

Interpreting the phases of fashion in Beyonce’s “Lemonade” Part 4

bey policeBy Chic Chik, fashion writer.

In the final phases of “Lemonade,” Beyoncé shares the screen with some phenomenal women. From the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown to young starlets who are on the come up, like Zendaya Coleman, Amandla Stenberg and Bey’s proteges Chloe and Halle.
In the redemption phase, Beyoncé embraces women from every age and stage in life. There wardrobe teeters on the edge of vintage and modern yet chic.
The mothers of both Trayvon and Mike Brown look stunning in elegant evening wear during their screen time.

The mothers sit front row during black and white more black and white scenes while Beyoncé belts “Freedom,” wearing an understated white dress by designer Maria Lucia Hohan.
The black in white imagery shows each generation of women again.
Top model Winnie Harlow looks elegant as well wearing a golden crown of thorns and a blue petticoat.
Quvenzhane holds hands with Blue Ivy, both wearing simple white dresses.
Fashionista Zendaya and social activist Amandla Stenberg sit high in trees near Beyoncé wearing couture, Victorian-style dress  on the former plantation.
The redemption phase also shows the generation of women lounging around, working the land in ever-so-on-trend denim pieces.
The final phase, hope, and the final song, “All Night,” brings color back into the frame. We see the world-stopping shot of Beyoncé and the girls on the steps. The group wears warm hues of olive, rust, grey and papaya.

Bey and girls
Ironically, Beyoncé’s final recorded scene she wears the Antebellum-style dress she wore in “Daddy Lessons.”
The final shots are everyday couples in everyday attire, including Beyoncé. We see footage of her and Jay celebrating Blue’s first birthday, playing in shades, spending quality time together — all fashionable yet realistic for the occasions.
“Formation” wraps up the visual album. We see Bey once again in high fashion Victorian pieces. Beyoncé and her dancers slay in long sleeve bodysuits, stonewashed denim as well as heather gray sportswear. The oversized sombrero makes an appearance once again and she ends it all sinking atop a police car in couture.
Yes, Bey! She slayed in every scene, every song and every phase of “Lemonade.” This was truly a visual gem for every fashionista who cares not only about the lyrics and music but what she’s wearing while slaying us all.
