No one puts on a show like Beyoncé. From Beychella to On the Run II, Mrs. Carter has been wowing audiences for the past two decades, so it came as no surprise this weekend when she picked up the NAACP Image Award for Best Entertainer. The diva may have skipped the red carpet at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, but she and stylist, Zerina Ackers weren’t going to let a fashion moment go to waste. Dressed in the opening look of Olivier Rousteing’s Spring 2019 Balmain couture collection, she picked up top honors from presenter Viola Davis. With its sculptural silhouette, revealing slit, and belted waist, the dramatic white suit was the right choice for a night that celebrated showmanship.
On Instagram, Beyoncé gave fans a 360 view of her look and husband Jay-Z—who took home the night’s President’s award—in his custom navy Louis Vuitton suit styled by June Ambrose. Beyoncé topped off the ensemble with the collection’s matching oversized hat and a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti silver sandals, radiating confidence and the star quality that won her accolades in the first place.
