The pop diva is always seen taking fashion risks, and wearing pieces from up-and-coming designers from all around the world. This occasion was no different as the 37-year-old singer wore an orange and brown checkered suit and matching wide-rimmed hat from Etsy designer EnaGancio. Beyoncé took to Instagram to share pictures from her colour popping suit with her 124 million followers.

EnaGanico who designs “African print inspired clothing for modern elegant women who are a shade sophisticated,” took to Instagram to share their excitement saying, “When music & fashion meets, the offspring is LOVE.
