Beyoncé stole the show in a golden custom gown by Falguni Shane Peacock to this year’s Wearable Art Gala, hosted by Tina Lawson.
The unique dress was created to fit with the theme of the night — “Waco to Wakanda.”
“We wanted to create an art statement, taking inspiration from the Nubian warrior queen [Amanishakheto],” said designers Falguni and Shane Peacock. “We felt it was the perfect inspiration when designing for such a strong woman like Beyoncé.”
“The metallic cutouts are placed strategically to mimic the shape of armor, as worn by the Nubian armies. The elaborate gold train was added to create a 3-D effect that emphasized royalty. Between the metallic cutouts to the gold dramatic train, we attained an artistic statement while respecting the Nubian inspiration.”
At one point in the evening, Beyoncé changed into a another look — a silky asymmetric dress with gold detailing by Jean-Louis Sabaji.
She accessorized her look with a custom metal headband by Uniquely Wired.
