Ever the one to surprise us, Beyonce snuck into the CFDA Awards last night with husband Jay-Z, mother Tina Knowles, and daughter Blue Ivy Carter! The stylish couple were decked out in Givenchy, with Queen Bey wearing the most exquisite sparkling striped suit from the brand's Haute Couture line.

Beyonce was the recipient of the Fashion Icon Award (the one Rihanna won when she chose that nearly-naked dress) -- one of the most coveted of the night.

During her speech, she spoke about how fashion has been a part of her life for as long as she can remember.

"When we were starting out in Destiny's Child, high-end labels didn't really want to dress four black country curvy girls, and we couldn't afford designer dresses and couture. My mother was rejected from every showroom in New York," she explained.

"But, like my grandmother, she used her talent and creativity to give her children their dreams. My mother and my uncle, God bless his soul, designed all of our first costumes and made each piece by hand, individually sewing hundreds of crystals and pearls, putting so much passion and love into every small detail. When I wore these clothes onstage, I felt like Khaleesi. I had an extra suit of armor. It was so much deeper than any brand name."

It's not often that we see Blue Ivy out and about with her parents -- but it's extra special that it was this night where she was allowed to walk the red carpet with mom and dad.

Congratulations, Bey, as the woman who sets trends with everything she wears, no one could deserve the 2016 CFDA Fashion Icon Award more! Click through above to see Beyonce and her family walk the red carpet.
