Following a rare red carpet walk at the Renaissance World Tour concert film’s London premiere, Beyoncé once again made a spectacular fashion statement—courtesy of an artful piece from Balmain.
For her after-party, Queen Bey slipped out of the black Thom Browne blazer she’d worn earlier in the night and into a dazzling Balmain minidress featuring vertical strips of embroidered pearls, crystals, and silver sequins. Fixed to her torso was a radiant, sunray-shaped panel with a huge deep-blue gem at the center, surrounded by an ornate design of crystals. The artful piece also included a jagged hemline, with the hem curving up and around her thighs.
She paired the statement look with classy black opera gloves, black Mary Jane heeled platforms, and massive crystal drop earrings.
Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing shared photos of the “Alien Superstar” singer on his Instagram. “When I think how the year started, dreaming about Renaissance tour, creating with you the Renaissance couture, and seeing the magic happening though the year with the Renaissance tour. It feels a dream come true,” he wrote in the caption. “Congratulations @beyonce for making us dream all this year, spreading your love and passion in so many cities and NOW: RENAISSANCE MOVIE. What a year! I feel blessed to have worked with you, to know you and seeing you wearing Balmain last night. I love you.”
Stars like Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, and Bey’s 11-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, were also among last night’s attendees. Beyoncé also held a premiere in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 25, which was attended by Lupita Nyong’o, Winnie Harlow, four of the five other former members of Destiny’s Child, and other celebs.
Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé officially drops in theaters today, December 1.
