Beyonce‘s power has now been officially cemented in the fashion industry by Anna Wintour. Queen Bey was just announced as an honorary chair for the annual Costume Institute Gala.
This year, the Met Ball is taking on the theme of Punk: Chaos to Couture, with Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci leading the charge as co-chair of the evening along with Rooney Mara, Lauren Santo Domingo, and Wintour of course. Could her March 2013 Vogue cover have influenced Wintour’s decision to add her as a late last minute honorary co-chair? It’s undeniable that 2013 has easily become Beyonce’s year—from her Pepsi campaign to her moment performing at the Superbowl.
On May 6th, actresses, models, and musicians will don their very best punk inspired attire for the red carpet affair. In the coming weeks, we’ll be reporting back to you on news of celebrity and designer pairings. Following the star studded event, the exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art will run from May 9 to August 14.
Now the real question is – what will Beyonce wear?! Givenchy, we presume.
