Rachel ‘Don’t Call Me Becky’ Roy came, saw a few folks, and left the CFDA Fashion Awards dinner on Monday night before Beyoncé arrived to accept the night’s Fashion Icon Award.

At Monday’s CFDA gala, Roy arrived with model Candice Huffine, whom she dressed, and they posed together for pics on the red carpet.
But as the gala began, rumors spread that Beyoncé might attend. One fashion writer tweeted, “Jay Z has just arrived .?.?. What could it mean?” Then Beyoncé’s daughter, Blue Ivy, and mom, Tina Knowles, showed up, essentially giving away the night’s Icon winner. Sister Solange was also rumored to be on the way, but didn’t materialize.
But Roy dashed before Beyoncé arrived onstage. “She disappeared with her place card and never came back,” said a source. It was “weird. I don’t know if it was because she’s ‘Becky,’ or what?” Another stunned source at the event said, “Rachel just came and left.”
But a friend of Roy’s explained she exited the awards only because she had to catch an early flight the next day to be with her kids in LA.
Rachel denied being the Becky mentioned in Beyoncé’s “Lemonade.” She said in a statement: “There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors.”
Hmm. As a designer, why would you LEAVE the CFDA Awards dinner? Actually, it was probably for the best.
