Beyonce Knowles was in attendance along with Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams at the Wearable Art Gala in Santa Monica on Saturday.
The event was thrown by Where Art Can Occur (WACO), an organization founded by Beyonce’s mother Tina Lawson and stepfather Richard Lawson.
The theme of this year’s Wearable Art Gala was “A Journey to the Pride Lands”—which explains the incredible Lion King references. Of the impressive array of outfits worn on the red carpet, Beyoncé’s mom told Los Angeles Times, “Wearable art has to be over-the-top.” She continued, “It can’t just be a dress with a little necklace. You’ve gotta really go there with it!”
