The Launch Of House Of Dereon By Beyonce And Tina Knowles

Not all of us wake up in the morning looking like we slept in a bed of spring roses — in fact, anyone who wakes up looking like a cover model in the morning is not real, or just named Beyoncé. Even Queen Bey’s mom Tina Knowles Lawson is a mortal, and she is definitely the original queen. I mean, have you SEEN her all-white wedding pics from her marriage to actor Richard Lawson in April of this year? She’s definitely the #girlboss who birthed Solange and Bey.


Tina, who’s also a super talented fashion designer from whom Bey clearly inherited her style chops, posted this just-woke-up morning pic on her Instagram a day ago, bedhead and all, along with the caption,”‘I woke up like this.’ My curls from yesterday are replaced with frizz! Yikes” LOLOLOL. Mama Knowles’ joke references that line from her daughter’s oft-quoted (on Insta and beyond) song “Flawless” that has literally become the jam — nay, the anthem — of women everywhere. And yeah, even with her “frizz,” Beyoncé’s mom is still #flawless.

Thanks for keeping it real, Tina!
