Beyoncé Wears Queer Menswear Designer Palomo Spain in Twins Reveal

Beyoncé

Iconic. 

After months of silence and speculation that Beyonce gave birth to her twins, the singer finally revealed today Sir Carter and Rumi in a glorious high fashion editorial, no less. After posting the image early this morning at 6:45 AM EST, Bey's Instagram is already well on its way to become the most-liked post ever, with 3 million likes in less than 3 hours.

With the ocean in the background, Bey stands in front of some hedges and an angelic floral arrangement that complements the billowing look she's wearing created by Palomo Spain. Launched in 2015 by queer designer Alejandro Gomez Palomo, the London College of Fashion alumnus has built a significant following for his femme, fanciful menswear.

"It's the only piece I've ever made like that," Palomo told The Fashion Law. "It is vintage silk organza from a really old couture textile shop in Cordoba, Spain, which is near where I live. It is circa either the 1950s or the 1960s. I thought, Oh my God, I am so in love with this fabric. It had a midcentury quality--but we changed that. It's exquisite... and I can never find it again, of course."

As Hari Nef points out, Bey's decision to wear Palomo Spain is significant, not only because he's a queer designer, but because she's "technically wearing menswear for the reveal of her twins--whose pregnancy she framed with so much feminine spirituality." She continues, "The idea of Bey wearing something intended for/shown on effeminate fancy queer-presenting men makes me so happy."

Check out the iconic Internet-breaking look, below.
