Beyoncé’s new album is monumental, full of stylistic and artistic references. Find out which ones.
For her new record work – Renaissence – Beyoncé signs a work full of artistic references, emphasizing many designers (known and emerging), literary, artistic works, and tributes to pop characters.
After a six-year absence, Queen B is back in the news, confirming herself as an icon of fashion and extravagance, as well as a contemporary diva.
Here are all the Renaissence features:
On the cover the pop star is shown half-naked, riding a horse that appears to be made of crystal, diamond dia and hologrammed.
A reference both to Lady Godiva, the Anglo-Saxon noblewoman wife of Earl Leofric of Coventry who – according to tradition – rode naked through the streets of Coventry to obtain the abolition of an additional tribute imposed by her husband on his subjects, in 990; and to the disco atmospheres of Studio 54, when, in 1977, Bianca Jagger entered the legendary New York Jet-Set club riding a white horse.
Her cover look was created by Nusi Quero, a Los Angeles-based brand whose couture pieces are conceived digitally, then made with a 3D printer.
