Beyoncé Plans House of Dereon Maternity Line

Submitted by on October 16, 2011 – 4:09 pm2 Comments

When Beyoncé decided that she wanted to announce to the world that she was pregnant, like so many times before, she knew that she had to take control of her own destiny. “I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself,” Beyoncé explained for her November 2011 cover story in Harper’s Bazaar. “I was extremely nervous. It was the toughest red carpet I ever did. I didn’t want a crazy picture or gossip story to break the news, so I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything.”

The mother-to-be and trendsetter appears on not one, but two covers for the high-fashion magazine shot by Terry Richardson. With her expanding baby bump and fashion on the brain, it’s no surprise that Beyoncé is working on expanding her House of Deréon collection with a maternity line. “I’ve had so much fun with fashion over the months. All I see now are clothes that are flattering on a pregnant woman,” she says. “It’s been so exciting for me! I love figuring out designs that still make me feel edgy and sexy while pregnant. Flowy fabrics are always flattering but I still rock my stilettos.”

I’m sure there will be an even bigger children’s collection for House of Deréon as soon as little Sasha Fetus is born. Check out a few highlights from Beyoncé’s Harper’s Bazaar feature:

On husband Jay-Z: “I admire his ability to inspire others. To me, Jay represents the American dream. Jay’s music has helped define our generation. All that he has overcome and worked to achieve gives millions hope that they can become whatever they want to be. I respect him so much; he is a great man and a great artist.”

On Her Fashion Inspirations: “I love Kate Moss. I think she has great style. And I always admire Victoria Beckham and Gisele [Bündchen]. Their style is modern but always classic.”

On Her Marriage: “We have been together since I was 20 years old. We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married.We focused three years on our marriage and found that it brought us an even stronger bond and connection. But like anything great and successful in your life, marriage takes hard work and sacrifice. It has to be something both you and your husband deeply want. The best thing about marriage is the amount of growth you have because you can no longer hide from your fears and insecurities. There’s someone right there calling you out on your flaws and building you up when you need the support. If you are with the right person, it brings out the best version of you.”

On Her Sister Solange Knowles: “This morning, I woke up and I was like, ‘Really? A fashion show?’ But I wanted to spend time with my sister. If you want to see the Third Ward Texas come out in me, disrespect my sister, and I will go completely crazy on you.”
