BLACK GIRL MAGIC: Beyoncé supports Ade Hassan’s Nubian Skin range on her Formation tour

A LINGERIE company founded by 29-year-old British entrepreneur Ade Hassan has been given a welcome boost after it was revealed that her products, a range of nude underwear for women of colour, is Beyoncé’s favourite when she’s on tour.

“Beyoncés Formation tour outfits (a series of five custom-made bodysuits) are every bit as stunning as the new songs from Lemonade – and they require some equally epic underwear,” wrote Huffington Post UK.

“The pop star’s world tour kicked off on Monday 27 April with an epic performance at Miami’s Marlins Park, and Bey has has enlisted lingerie brand Nubian Skin to provide underwear for her and her dancers on every single date.”
