For her mum’s annual Wearable Art Gala, Beyoncé got her “Lion King” on, wearing a custom-made glittering, feathery golden catsuit featuring an image of a lion across the bodice.

Tina Lawson‘s annual gala for this year, was themed “A Journey to the Pride Lands,” inspired by Disney’s upcoming CGI-live action The Lion King reboot, in which Beyoncé provides the voice of Nala.

The event was thrown by Where Art Can Occur (WACO), an organization founded by Beyonce’s mother Tina Lawson and stepfather Richard Lawson.   

‘Wearable art has to be over-the-top,’ Tina told the Los Angeles Times, continuing, ‘It can’t just be a dress with a little necklace. You’ve gotta really go there with it!’ 

Also in attendance were former Destiny’s Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland, Girl’s Trip star Tiffany Haddish and former co-host of The View Star Jones.   

Tina, who shares Beyonce with her ex-husband Matthew Knowles, was a feathery sensation in a floor-length gown.

The extravagantly frilly black ensemble had a triple-tiered skirt and an elegant cowl, as well as a shiny corset that emphasized her trim figure.

Beneath the blazer she wore a monochrome top with a swirling pattern and flared out cuffs, rounding off the look with black and white striped heels.   

Tiffany Haddish also opted for some plumage in an off-the-shoulder gown that was covered in red feathers above the waist and black fur below, donning a fuzzy black headdress that resembled a traditional Aso Oke hat on her head.

And Star Jones was beautiful in blue, wearing a textured floor-length gown with a flowing shawl.
