beyonce CFDA Awards

After breaking records on the Billboard charts with her latest album, LEMONADE, Beyoncé continued to slay in the fashion world last night by collecting the Fashion Icon Award at the 2016 CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

Decked out in a black wide-brimmed hat and sparkly Givenchy Couture suit, Queen Bey gave a powerful and inspiring acceptance speech about how fashion is “so much deeper than any brand name.” In a particularly moving moment, Bey recalled how her cash-strapped grandmother had to handcraft the uniforms at her mother’s Catholic school just to keep her mother in school.

The stars are out on Monday night (May 2), as the 2016 Met Gala takes over the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Hosted by Anna Wintour, this year’s event is also co-hosted by Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, and Apple’s chief design officer, Jonathan Ive. The theme for this year’s extravagant soiree is “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology,” as A-listers in entertainment and fashion posed for the cameras during red carpet arrivals.

Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, Nas, Ciara, Wiz Khalifa, Willow and Jaden Smith, Nick Jonas, Derek Jeter, and more showed off their pricey outfits, showing off their individual, and in some cases puzzling style. Louis Vuitton designer Nicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld, and Miuccia Prada serve as honorary chairs for the Met Gala.

birdman respek tshirt

Birdman may have immortalized himself as the Internet’s newest favorite meme after his little outburst on The Breakfast Club last week, but clearly the Cash Money mogul is looking to have the last laugh — all the way to the bank. Yesterday Baby unveiled a brand new merch collection that — surprise, surprise — includes a few “Put Some Respek On My Name” t-shirts. You can also pick up tees and hoodies featuring other memorable lines from Birdman’s controversial interview like “I Ain’t Gonna Say It No More” and “Finish or You Done” (which should really be “y’all finished or y’all done”).

The merch is available now at CashMoney.MerchDirect.com. Is y’all buying or is y’all copping?
