On Saturday night, stars came out to grace the 2nd Annual Wearable Art Gala at Alexandria Ballrooms in Los Angeles. The extravagant bash, hosted by Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles Lawson and her beau, Richard Lawson, benefits the WACO (Where Art Can Occur) Theater Center, providing teen mentorship programs and a place where individuals are encouraged to use their self-expression through theatre and art. The evening’s theme was “From WACO to Wakanda” and the fashion reflected the huge impact Black Panther has had on the whole world in the weeks since its premiere.
The second annual Wearable Art Gala was indeed a family affair for the Knowles-Carter and Lawsons as Beyoncé was honoured with WACO Theater Center’s first Humanitarian Award at the gala while her mother-in-law, Gloria Carter, was the inaugural recipient of the Everyday People Award. Beyoncé and Blue Ivy came prepared to slay in matching gold ensembles but it was Blue Ivy who stole the show in her stunning gold ensemble which included a completely gold wig.
Here are some of the best looks of the night…
