Richard Lawson and his wife, Tina Knowles-Lawson, better known as the mother of R&B superstar Beyoncé, hosted the first Wearable Art Gala at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles this weekend. Along with her superstar daughter, the expectant Queen Bey was flanked by her husband, Jay Z. The event was well attended by other stars such as Samuel L. Jackson, EJ Johnson, Kelly Rowland, Magic Johnson, and many more.

The event was formed with the efforts of the Lawsons, who brought in Tina’s expertise in fashion and art. Her husband is an actor and master acting instructor. The couple announced plans for the Wearable Art Gala, a charitable event, shortly after establishing the nonprofit art and performance center, Where Art Can Occur (WACO), in Los Angeles.

The gala featured a dinner reception by Harold & Belle’s Restaurant, along with dancing and musical performances. The $500 donation to WACO to attend the affair was part of a fundraising effort for the Lawsons’ community programs, Tina’s Angels and Richard’s Warriors.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Solange Knowles, Bianca Lawson, and Kelly Rowland all served as the gala’s honorary chairpersons. Live and silent auctions of the wearable art designs and other memorabilia, including a microphone autographed by Beyoncé, took place as stars showed off their best on the red carpet. Sponsors of the event included longtime Jay Z partner Live Nation, Lyft, Shea Moisture, Lorraine Schwartz, and more.

More than just a figurehead for the event, Knowles-Lawson stunned in her wearable art dress on the red carpet. However, her famous daughters and son-in-law opted to stay away from the media throng, but social media came to the rescue for gawkers everywhere.
