Tina and Richard Lawson’s Wearable Art Gala was once again a success. The couple invited A-List celebs to their third annual fundraiser benefitting the WACO (Where Art Can Occur) nonprofit gallery and performance space.

This year’s theme for the costume gala that’s been called the “Met West”, in comparison to NY’s Met Ball, was “A Journey to the Pride Lands,” inspired by Disney’s “The Lion King” remake in which Beyoncé stars as Nala.

With that in mind, OF COURSE, King Bey was in attendance and she didn’t disappoint. Beyoncé STUNNED in a gold bodysuit with a lion emblazoned across the chest paired with a matching cape and heels. She shared detailed pics of her costume for the evening on Instagram as well as a cute video of Blue singing “The Circle Of Life” while decked out in African garb.

Other attendees included Trailblazer Award honoree Tyler Perry…
