Sara, who was born in London to Saudi Arabian parents, set up Death By Dolls with her sister in 2008. The sisters are understandably proud of the fashion icon wearing their design, and posted several pictures of Beyonce wearing their design on their social media account.

Meanwhile, Bey’s husband Jay-Z emulated Olympic athlete Tommie Smith for the festivities. The rapper copied Tommie’s Black Power salute from the 1968 Mexico City Olympic Games, which some have interpreted as a sign of support for  Colin Kaepernick,  who the famous couple have both previously said they support.
