Beyoncé was all glamour over the weekend as she attended the Wearable Art Gala at the WACO Theater Center in company of her daughter Blue Ivy.
Beyoncé’s ensemble was nothing short of a shimmering, jaw-dropping gown which was reportedly tailored in order by 35 workers.
The custom gown was created by Falguni Shane Peacock. The designers, Falguni and Shane Peacock, said they wanted to create a statement gown inspired by the Nubian queen Amanishakheto.
“Amanishakheto was a powerful woman who led the Nubian people as their warrior queen,” they said.
In order to translate this message into the design, they created metallic cutouts that mimicked the design of armor. They also created an 11-foot, 3-D train, which was meant to highlight her Nubian royalty.
It took 35 workers about 10 days to complete the gown with Beyoncé and her stylist, Marni Senofonte, reviewing sketches and fabric swatches.
“We continued to work closely with them by sending over images along the way in order to achieve the vision,” said the designers.
