When Beyoncé generously invited laypeople into her picture-perfect world via Tumblr, we were some of the first curious minds to scan the page. We marveled over the scenic shots of the singer herself, hubby Jay Z, and baby Blue Ivy (giggling and smiling while dressed to the nines) in exotic locales. And we regularly comb the "Drunk in Love" singer's Instagram feed for nougats of sartorial wisdom.
As of late, Queen B has been amping up her presence on the photo-sharing app by posting diptych-style split-screen 'grams of her outfit of the day (though without explicitly labeling the posts as such—that's not what royals do, after all). In a recent upload (above, left), captioned "Good morning," she flashes a megawatt smile in a chic printed romper and a busts out a one-legged pose, revealing a rockin' pair of mules by Chelsea Paris. And just like that, we're obsessed.
The London brand, which counts Cameron Diaz, Selena Gomez, and Lauren Conrad among its fans, was founded by Nigerian-born designer Theresa Ebagua, whose creative influence emanates from her African heritage and love of the 1920s art deco era. Each shoe is produced in Italy using exotic skins and unique materials, including the Bey-favored Yuwa style from the autumn/winter 2014 collection (above), which is made of blue calfskin leather with an African watersnake heel. "I gave a nod to its 1970’s past with a clean, block heel," Ebagua told InStyle.com of the design. "It’s a go-to style day or night."
