When fashion and politics meet, it looks a little something like Beyoncé’s latest Instagram post. The world-famous singer shared a black-and-white video of herself wearing a wide-brimmed topper and a matching shirt designed by Balmain. She accessorized the eye-catching, geometric design with a Biden-Harris protective face mask to officially endorse the Democratic nominees.
The mom of one specifically wore pieces from the Spring/Summer 2021 collection featuring the French fashion house’s updated PB Balmain monogram. Creative director Olivier Rousteing announced the refreshed logo as part of the Balmain runway show during Paris Fashion Week, but Monsieur Balmain originally introduced the signature motif in the 70s.
To complete the statement-making look, Beyoncé stuck an “I Voted” sticker to the top of her wide-brimmed hat with the mission to encourage her 155-million followers to vote on Election Day. The Houston native captioned the selfie, “Come thru, Texas! #VOTE 😘.” Texas leans conservative, but maybe she can help change things up? It is Queen Bey, after all.
In a second Instagram post, the Black Is King singer shared an infographic that says, “The most important drop is at the ballot box.” This post is about her second Ivy Park x adidas drop that came out on October 30 and is nearly sold out. Nevertheless, the mom of one wants you to know that your vote is more important than her colorful new collection.
Queen Bey isn’t the only star who’s made a political statement wearing the luxury label. Just a day prior, Lady Gaga posted a boomerang wearing denim-on-denim from Balmain’s latest collection.
“I AM SO EXCITED to be back in Pennsylvania! (Pittsburgh where I used to fly into to visit my grandma!),” writes the singer in the accompanying caption. “See you tomorrow at Joe’s rally! WE NEED EVERY VOTE PA – make a plan. This election depends on you! ❤️ #Biden #vote.”
Pennsylvania is a swing state, which means that Lady Gaga and her fellow blue supporters will be doing everything in their power over the next 24 hours to get people to the polls. Godspeed.
