Beyonce has been known to spice up her wardrobe with the occasional Ankara (African Print) outfit. Her most recent Afronista statement was made at the UTA Artist Space in Beverly Hills where she wore a colorful print African style pantsuit with matching hat. She attended the event with her husband JayZ to support their friend Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean at the group exhibition “Dreamweavers.”

The Designer Ena Udemba

The custom outfit was made by 34-year-old Nigerian designer Ena Udemba.  In an interview with Bustle, Udemba shared that her Etsy shop “EnaGancio” had caught the attention of Beyonce’s personal stylist Zerina Ackers. Ackers asked Udemba for a one of a kind outfit made for the Grammy award-winning singer and actress.

“The creation had to be unique, something for her alone. The biggest queen on earth! I felt responsible,” she explains. “I just had to make some modifications for it to be unique for Queen B! I felt anxious and at the same time determined to be successful.”

Beyonce’s African Style

This is not the first time Beyonce has afronized her look. She occasionally incorporates afrocentric pieces into her style and in typically Bey style, she knocks the looks out of the park.
