The second annual Wearable Art Gala was a family affair for the Knowles-Carters. Beyoncé, JAY-Z, and Blue Ivy were in attendance at the WACO Theater in LA on Saturday night where the Lemonade singer was honored for her humanitarian work. The swanky gala, organized by Bey’s mom, Tina Knowles, and her husband Richard Lawson, was also attended by JAY-Z’s mother, Gloria Carter, who was given the Everyday People Award. Gloria also received a touching tribute from the rapper himself. “She raised four kids, and she did the best job with me,” he joked.
The dress code of the evening was “from WACO to Wakanda,” inspired by the gorgeous setting in Black Panther, and the event featured an auction of artwork to raise money for a nonprofit art and performance complex. At one point, Blue, who wore a gold wig, completely upstaged her famous parents, bidding $17,000 on an acrylic painting of a young Sidney Poitier. JAY-Z attempted to stop her by taking away her paddle, but it didn’t work. Blue bid even higher at $19,000.
