Beyoncé cemented her status as a fashion icon at WACO Theater Center's 5th Annual Wearable Art Gala, which took place in California over the weekend.
Held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, the glamorous event was co-founded by her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, and stepfather, Richard Lawson, to raise resources to support WACO's artistic and youth mentorship programs.
This year's theme was "Harlem Nights," celebrating fashions from the 1920s to the 1950s.
It has fast become one of the more unexpectedly dazzling events on the celebrity calendar, as stars walk the red carpet in extravagant designs. The event was put on hold for two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so its return to the red carpet was especially spectacular.
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Bianca Lawson, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, Solange Knowles served as honorary chairs, while Angela Bassett, Chloe and Halle Bailey, Keke Palmer, Mark Bradford, Andra Day and Star Jones were the 2022 honorees.
