Life Imitates Art: Beyoncé Wore This Ankara Suit to a Gallery Opening
Beyoncé has been pretty open about her love of art in recent months — have you seen the "Apesh*t" video? — so were we surprised to see her and JAY-Z at the opening of an art exhibit earlier this week? That'd be a no, but we were even less surprised to see that she wore an outfit that complemented the art, like only Beyoncé would.
Queen Bey showed up to the opening of DREAMWEAVERS, an exhibit co-presented in Los Angeles by Swizz Beatz and UTA Artist Space, wearing a plunging Ankara pantsuit with a matching hat designed by Nigerian designer, EnaGancio. Ankara is a print primarily associated with Africa because of its use of vibrant colors and tribal patterns, and seeing as this was a show that celebrated the work of African-American artists, her outfit selection was pretty fitting for the occasion. She finished her look with a pair of strappy Jimmy Choo sandals. Read ahead to see more photos of her look and to shop similar styles.
