by /

Beyoncé has enlisted a new talented woman to appear alongside her in the latest campaign for Ivy Park - actress Sonoya Mizuno. With each star posing against a different background, their common bond is their shared love of sport and living a healthy lifestyle. The photoshoot sees Beyoncé rock a black and white hoodie with bold stitching, layered over thigh-high socks. Another shot sees her flaunt her slender frame in a khaki jumper over a netted, street style inspired dress.

British-Japanese actress Sonoya has managed to bag roles in the award-winning movie La La Land and Disney hit Beauty and the Beast. Speaking about her collaboration with the fashion brand, the 29-year-old said in a press release: "Ballet has given me an incredible, it's second nature to me and I use it every day. Most of my work is in film and acting, but it's still a transferrable skill which I have been so indebted to and so grateful for."

The clothing brand has described itself as an "activewear brand that merges fashion-led design with technical innovation to create a new kind of performance wear; modern essentials for both on and off the field." Inspiration for the womenswear came from Beyoncé's own disconnect from other fitness brands. In a statement, Beyoncé - whose daughter is called Blue Ivy - admitted: "When I'm working and rehearsing I live in my work out clothes but I didn’t feel there was an athletic brand that spoke to me." She added: "My goal with Ivy Park is to push the boundaries of athletic wear and to support and inspire women who understand that beauty is more than your physical appearance. True beauty is in the health of our minds, hearts and bodies."
