Beyonce has shared with fans worldwide her inspiration behind a Kenyan custom made yellow dress and neck piece that her daughter Blue Ivy wore earlier this year.
Blue Ivy in the video can be heard saying
‘And this piece is from Kenya. Ok I will tell you one thing so this is a circle and this Africa is the circle of life.’
Beyonce adds that
‘so many talented people worked on on this project. I was very honored to have the women of Northern Kenya work on a very special costume for Blue’
This dress and headpiece was hand beaded with love by beadingArtist from Kenya.
She wore this headpiece and dress to the Waco’s 2019 Gala (annual wearable art gala) at the WACO Theater in Los Angeles for a night full of art, music, and charitable donations.
The glamorous gala was organized by Bey’s mom, Tina Knowles, and her husband, Richard Lawson, to benefit their nonprofit gallery and performance venue.
The theme of the evening was “A Journey to the Pride Lands,” inspired by the then anticipated live-action remake of The Lion King in which Beyoncé voiced Nala.
While Bey modeled a glimmering golden jumpsuit with a cape and voluminous lion motif, JAY-Z sported a dark suit.
Blue Ivy even got in on the Pride Rock fun, rocking a billowing bright yellow dress and a spiked crown á la Bey’s onstage ensemble at the 2017 Grammys.
