The Most Rave-worthy Looks From The 2019 Wearable Art Gala

For the 3rd year in a row, Tina Knowles-Lawson and her husband Richard Lawson hosted the annual Wearable Art Gala on Saturday night in Santa Monica, California. The event, which was emceed by Tiffany Haddish, held under the umbrella of the Where Art Can Occur (WACO) Theatre Centre.

WACO is on a mission to show that theatre and art is a powerful, important part of the Los Angeles culture and community and should be accessible to all. The theme for the 2019 Wearable Art Gala was “A Journey to the Pride Lands.” This was a nod to Disney’s upcoming CGI movie The Lion King which features Beyoncé as Nala and Donald Glover as Simba.

This year, over $2 million was raised for arts education and the WACO Theatre Centre. In addition, money raised from the gala helps to fund the couples’ mentorship programs, Tina’s Angels and Richard’s Warriors, which empowers inner-city students ages 12 to 14.

As always, guests showed up to the event in their best interpretation of wearable art outfits. A handful of guests paid tribute to Africa as designs made from Ankara and Adire fabrics showed up on the red carpet.


Beyoncé was the queen of the night as she showed up in a custom-made gold coloured bedazzled catsuit lionsuit designed by Georges Hobeika. Attached to the catsuit were feathers, an image of a lion across the bodice and a matching cape. We’ve never seen anything quite like it and we can all agree that Beyoncé sure knows how to promote her project.

Here are some of the most Rave-worthy looks of the night…
