Beyoncé’s photos are iconic. So it isn’t surprising that even the world’s largest museum wants a stock of her images. Tuesday, we learned that a photo from Vogue’s September 2018 issue, shot by Tyler Mitchell, was acquired by the Smithsonian Institute. The portrait of Bey, where she flaunts her natural hair in cornrows making the piece an instant classic, will be on permanent display at the National Portrait Gallery.
And just one day after the announcement, Queen Bey blessed us with yet another series of epic photos.
On Wednesday, the singer posted beautiful images to Instagram where she’s seen wearing a lilac wrap dress, lavender lenses, and a moody lipstick that compliments the monochrome look. Bey’s purple pout popped and stood out, and now we’re obsessed with the haunting hue.
In an ode to our queen, we’ve rounded up dope dupes of the shade to bring out our inner Beyoncé. Ahead, seven pretty purple lipsticks from Black-owned beauty brands the Beyhive should try.
