If you logged onto Twitter or Instagram for even two minutes this past weekend you, undoubtedly, came across a photo of Queen Bey slaying in all of her black glory while in New York City.

The singer was most definitely a sight to see alongside her husband, Jay Z, at his Roc Nation pre-grammy brunch Saturday afternoon. But it was the custom Azzi and Osta black gown with beret that she wore to the Clive Davis Grammy gala that really made a statement — in more ways than one, according to her makeup artist Sir John.

With her third ensemble of the weekend, last night’s Nicolas Jebran black velvet dress with accompanying Judith Leiber clutch in the shape of a black panther, Bey has been visually demonstrating her support of the Black Panther party. As Sir John explained in an interview with People, “It started with Super Bowl last January, and here we are a year later. If you look at the beret from yesterday, the turtleneck part of the dress tonight – its sculptural silhouette. It was a really strong, powerful moment. This is something that is representative of love and solidarity for her people.”

And, of course, her people were here for it, Beyhive and otherwise — at least for the most part. It’s nice to see that without speaking to the public or press, Beyoncé is still making a statement. What did you think about her looks?
