Blue Ivy Carter did not come to play at the Wearable Art Gala with her mother, Beyonce. Last night, Tina Knowles Lawson held the annual Wearable Art Gala at the WACO Theatre Center in Los Angeles, California.
This year, Tina wanted to celebrate African-American artists. The funds raised at the gala will benefit teen mentorship programs.
Tina explained how thrilled she was to host the event by saying: “We are so excited to host the second annual Wearable Art Gala to celebrate art, culture, and humanity. We are in a beautiful moment when black art is challenging societal norms, transforming fashion and truly being appreciated on a large scale.”
Beyoncé, who was honored with WACO Theater Center’s first Humanitarian Award, looked like she walked out of Wakanda in a gorgeous African-inspired gold dress.
Blue was dripping in gold — heck — even her hair was gold. Gloria Carter, who is JAY-Z’s mother, was also at the event and was honored with the Everyday People Award.
A person, who did not like Queen Bey’s wig, said: “Someone check on Beyonce…how it’s the wearable art gala??? Blue gave the boujee wave to her own grandma. My only a problem with Beyonce is her wearing blonde hair. I don’t think I’ve seen Queen Latifah, Mary J or Mariah without blonde for 20 years, Beyonce needs to solve the problem.”
A commenter defended the diva by writing: “But most black women these days color their hair, so your point is irrelevant. I’m proud has a fellow black woman that she has achieved so much and never forget her black roots. So her hair doesn’t define her…to me at least.How much she is paying for the dress holder position?! and I’ll sign whatever paperwork. Two queens and a princess! They look so beautiful.”
Another follower shared: “Why do people always say Beyoncé is high. I’m starting to think that some of us are so sheltered and ignorant that we don’t comprehend that we can have different types of personalities and demeanors. She’s probably just shy and not a people person. Stop assuming people are on drugs or “crazy” if they don’t act like how you would act.”
Beyonce is getting ready for a performance at Coachella.
