Beyonce escaped the stresses of the Covid-19 lockdown by playing dress up with her family.

The 39-year-old opened up on her private life in an interview with British Vogue, as she appeared on three covers of the December issue of the fashion bible.

In the 20-page spread, the Crazy in Love hitmaker rocked a variety of custom designer outfits, including her own IVY PARK creations, as well as pieces from Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta, Vivienne Westwood, Burberry, Fendi and Christopher John Rogers.

And Beyonce revealed that fashion has brought joy to her life during this turbulent year, and even dresses up with her three kids – Blue Ivy, eight, and three-year-old twins, Sir and Rumi – who she shares with husband JAY-Z.

"During quarantine, fashion was a place of escape for me. My kids and I came up with 'Fashion Fridays'," she told British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful. "Every Friday, we would dress up in my clothes or make clothes together and take each other’s pictures. It became a ritual for us and an opportunity to laugh off this crazy year together."

She also said her latest IVY PARK collection, called Drip 2, was also inspired by the sweet family tradition.

"It consciously uses bright, bold colours to remind us to smile. I used a lot of neon yellow and coral mixed with baby blue and earth tones that felt soothing. They brought me joy and made me smile in the midst of a tough time for all of us," Beyonce explained.
