She’s the mother of three – a number that includes twin babies and a seriously precocious six-year-old – in addition to being a role model to literally every woman on earth. She has just dropped a joint album with her husband with an accompanying music video for the single “Apes**t” that saw them taking over the Louvre, and she is currently in the middle of a worldwide tour. Her on-stage performances are a solid three hours long and include non-stop dancing, singing, crowd work, and dozens of complicated outfit changes.
Just typing all that out made us exhausted, so imagine how Beyoncé must feel on a daily basis. Sure, she has a team of nannies, makeup artists, stylists, choreographers, and a hefty-sized entourage, but she is still a one-woman powerhouse when it comes to performing. So when it comes to downtime – which there is little of when you’re on a worldwide tour – Queen Bey takes maxing and relaxing to the, well, max.
The woman works hard on tour, but plays even harder on holiday. Her idea of chilling involves adorable family moments and sipping actual tea on the yacht of one of the world’s most prominent billionaires. And in a case of “like mother, like daughter”, Blue Ivy has become an entire mood herself with her version of vacationing, which includes blissed out moments like this one.
Beyoncé, meanwhile, has been feeling her vacation self in eye-popping Versace prints, bodycon silhouettes, the occasional tee-and-jeans combos, and a variety of #hairgoals styles – all very reminiscent of the outfit changes that punctuate her performances. Not only have we rounded up her best vacation moments of the summer so far, but we’ve also included some of the Carter family’s most lovely family photos (including a long-awaited shot of Sir and Rumi) in the gallery below.
