Beyonce Bends Over Backward (Literally) to Reveal New Ivy Park Collection

She betta work it out! Just a week after the first day of autumn, Beyoncé is serving up her latest fall and winter collection from her athleisure line, Ivy Park, and showing just how functional her fashions can be.

In a Thursday, September 29, Instagram post, the Lemonade musician, 35, performed a — you guessed it! — flawless backbend while outfitted in black leggings and a quarter-sleeve crop top printed with Ivy Park on the sides and bands, respectively. The mom of Blue Ivy, 4, with Jay Z, also performs the move in a promotional video for the collection, modeling the goods that arrived at TopShop and Nordstrom’s stores and websites on September 22.

“I teach my body every day that it can go a little further,” she says in a voiceover, as a combination of rehearsal clips and poignant shots of Bey and her family flash. “When I’m about to give up, I picture that one person I love more than anyone … and I imagine myself running towards them.”

The line, which was announced in March and debuted in April, is chock-full of swimwear, tops, hoodies and more. Lea Michele, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Elle Fanning were among the lucky few to get their hands on the newest goods to wear at the Formation World Tour in Los Angeles on September 14. Laverne Cox, a devoted Beyhive member who styled the gray Gym Body with a leather jacket, has been a fan from the very beginning. She even tweeted about getting “in #IvyPark #Formation” when the line dropped!

“I love being dressed up, but this took a lot of work,” she told Us Weekly on the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards red carpet on May 14. “It was a hotel room of people that made this happen, so I love my casual no-makeup days when I'm in sweats and Ivy Park and just chillin’!”
