It’s September 4th, or better yet, it’s Beyonce’s birthday, officially dubbed Bey Day. A star, icon and a Queen, Beyonce Giselle Knowles was born 37 years ago today and she’s graced the world with her presence ever since by way of music and fashion. Her biggest fan (her mother Tina Knowles) shared a throwback image of Bey at just four months old calling her “the most beautiful, generous [and] loving” soul.
“Always thinking, planning, analyzing, strategizing, how you can make everything you touch better!,” she said of her daughter.
Beyonce’s recent September issue of Vogue is not only fierce because of her looks but she talks some real empowerment in this issue. From body acceptance, pregnancy, opening doors to freedom and her legacy. “I want to learn more, teach more, and live in full. I’ve worked long and hard to be able to get to a place where I can choose to surround myself with what fulfills and inspires me,” she wrote.
So in light of Beyonce’s impact on the culture and her ever-inspiring looks, check out some of her fiercest, most Beyonce moments.
