Beyonce’s Lemonade: A Visual Album of Identity and Vulnerability

How do I even begin to explain Beyonce’s visual and cathartic film Lemonade? Truth is my description will pale in comparison to what the woman did, but I’ll try.

Fashionably Conscious

Awareness of your own mind is consciousness. Radiating happiness isn’t only external it is mutually internal; beauty is evoked in being at peace with yourself and others.  After losing a chosen one, I contemplated, I meditated, I reflected on every aspect of myself.

Um, Because It’s Friday Night!

Let’s take it back to a time when L.A. Gear and Reebok Pumps were at the top of the shoe game.
