Beyonce Talks Pregnancy, Maternity Wear And Fashion

A pregnant Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles walked the runway to launch their House of Dereon line at Selfridges in London. At the show the Knowles spoke to CNN about Bey’s pregnancy, working as a team, and of course, fashion. Beyonce gushed and beamed as she talked about letting the cat out of the bag. Her pregnancy that is.

“I am having so much fun, it has been the most fun time now that it has been announced.”

“It was really difficult to conceal. But now… I can be proud and excited about it, I’m having so much fun shopping — it’s great!”

After gushing about her pregnancy, Beyonce talked about the inspiration for The House of Dereon:

This collection was inspired by a lot of my travels. I did a world tour, I traveled to Asia, Brazil, all over the world and I saw such beauty and my mother traveled with me and we decided we should mix these great cultures together and make something original and beautiful, and this show celebrates the global nomad, and one day at the rate we’re going which is such a beautiful thing, there won’t be all these different races we’ll all just be mixed up and beautiful and that is so wonderful exciting and refreshing you know we have the mixtures of the African hair wraps and some of the Asian prints and we mix it with different textures sequins and gold jewelery and it just becomes very refreshing.

CNN: Congratulations on the pregnancy. Does the collection now include maternity wear — everybody will be asking that question?

What I’m wearing today (see above) is part of the collection and its not supposed to be, but it actually is really good for the maternity but we didn’t plan six months ago before – actually longer than that – but we do have some things that I am still trying to rock.

Catch a glimpse of the collection with interview clips with Tina and Beyonce. I highly doubt we will catch Bey wearing maternity wear anytime during this pregnancy!
