Beyonce is recognized as a fashionable performer who always wears the most trendy pieces on and off stage. The singer received much attention for wearing extremely high heels while pregnant with Blue Ivy, and continues to be one who shows off her curves on the red carpet. So who’s behind the singer’s fashion magic? That would be stylist Raquel Smith.
When asked about the challenging task of hiding Beyonce’s pregnancy until the R&B singer was ready to reveal the good news Smith said, “At first it was very tricky because we were trying to keep it a secret, but we just found beautiful blouses and baggy slacks, loafers, some mid-heels, to not really show what was going on but keep her trendy and stylish.”
Now that Blue is here, Raquel and her team hope to prove that motherhood does not ruin a woman’s figure by showing off Bey’s curves. “We are focusing on more figured looks for her to show off her silhouette after she had the baby—we’re just trying to show off her body,” said the stylist. “If it’s for a red carpet event, we just try to go for something that shows off her body, we try to show her waistline, show she’s still sexy. I know a lot of people think after you have a baby you just lose your figure, but that’s just not the case.”
