While she loves to wax lyrical about the hot sauce in her bag, Beyoncé also regularly sings the praises of women with all different body types. Now, the superstar is using her fashionable prowess to illustrate the fact that not all models are ultra-thin, catwalk-slaying heroines. In fact, to introduce a new batch of relaxed-fit merchandise on her own site, the Grammy Award-winning beauty tapped 5-foot-2 IMG model Jillian Mercado, an industry favorite who proudly lives with muscular dystrophy.

“OK LADIES now let’s get in FORMATION! So BEYond excited to finally announce that I’m on the official @beyonce website,” Mercado wrote alongside the below ‘gram of her and two other beauties posing in their Bey-approved sweatshirts and tees. “A special shout out to Queen Bee herself and the amazing team behind it.”

Across the portfolio of images, the brunette sports neutral-toned pieces of athletic gear that pay tribute to the singer’s hits with phrases like “Smack It” and “Slay” emblazoned across the front.
