"I want to leave my footprints in the sands of time’ and it basically is all of our dreams, I think. And that’s leaving our mark on the world. I feel like we all want to know that our life meant something."
In honor of World Humanitarian Day, Singer Beyoncé and aid organizations are using social media to reach over 1 billion people to share one simple message. Beyonce recorded her music video "I Was Here," at the U.N.'s General Assembly Hall. Premiering officially today in Times Square, "I Was Here" declares the need to make a lasting change. Whether doing something big or small, being proactive will enlighten our lives and those around us. World Humanitarian Day celebrates the lives lost in making the world a better place. Many aid workers and volunteers are lost every year helping others including 22 U.N. workings in Bagdhad, 19 volunteers in Somalia, and countless others in captivity, just to name a few.
She arrived at the U.N. wearing an all white Alexander McQueen peplum waist pencil dress with bell sleeves. Accentuating her inner beauty, Beyoncé wore minimal make up with a sleek high ponytail. She completed the outfit with no accessories and tri-colour Ruthie Davis ‘Boardwalk’s platform peep-toes. Her flawless style and natural beauty left me in complete awe.
For her music video she changed into a stunning white sequined gown by Marc Bouwery from his Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Bouwery's dress accentuated every curve on Bey's body yet somehow remained understated. The glistening white and the texture brought out Bey's silhouette perfectly with slightly exaggerated shoulders and form fitting cut. Bey looked angelic against the moving IMAX images of humanitarians in action.
