The “Hold Up” singer ― who voices Nala in the film ― wore a gorgeous, custom-made Alexander McQueen design that transformed a black blazer into a bejeweled piece of art, dripping in crystals that extended down her black, tulle skirt.
Bey paired her look with a necklace and earrings from McQueen’s costume collection, along with nude and white diamond rings by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.
Blue Ivy wore a similarly-fashioned black bejeweled blazer with an outfitted tulle skirt.
After the premiere, a new single by Beyoncé called “Spirit” was released from the “Lion King: The Gift” album.
The singer, who produced and curated the new album, spoke about what the new album meant to her.
“This is a new experience of storytelling,” the singer said in a statement, describing the collection of songs as “sonic cinema” that is a “mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.”
“Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation,” the 37-year-old said.
Beyonce added that it was “important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”
