As she's known for her propensity for creative fashion, it should come as no surprise that Beyonce absolutely slayed at the Wearable Art Gala, which was a benefit for the Where Art Can Occur (WACO) Theater Center. The event was actually orchestrated by Beyonce's mother, Tina Knowles — in a sweet comment on Instagram, the Lemonade singer noted:
I am super proud of my beautiful mother for creating such an awesome event. Close to $1 million was raised for The WACO Theater Center to benefit young people through their mentorship programs and the arts. Mom, you inspire us all to be generous, selfless, positive, to have empathy, to love and to praise creativity in the world. It brought tears to my eyes to be a witness to what you and Richard have created together. WACO is a safe place truly Where Art Can Occur. I love you.
Dress-wise, she kept things pretty classic, with a shiny ruched scarlet gown — but it was with the accessorizing that she really got creative. She topped her fabulous dress and ombre beach waves off with a giant headdress — a beautiful confection of branches, flowers, and even butterflies. Think of the prettiest flower arrangement you've ever seen, mix it with your concept of the crown the queen of the fairies wears whilst frolicking in the forest, and you've got a pretty good idea of Beyonce's latest headdress.
Honestly, it's actually only logical that Beyonce would excel at an event called the Wearable Art Gala — one look at her Instagram account (or any of her recent major performances) is proof enough that the singer is all about wearable art. Take, for instance, the angelic headdress she sported at the recent Grammy Awards — what was that, if not a beyond fabulous example of the concept?
She wasn't alone, either — as the mastermind behind the whole event, Tina Knowles was also in attendance, wearing a gorgeous, tiered, mermaid-silhouetted ball gown covered in deep green leaves, and accented with an architectural floral corsage.
Between their next-level fashion game and the $1 million they raised in the name of youth arts programming, it seems like it was quite the triumphant evening for the Knowles family.
