Beyonce Shares Photos From Tina Knowles' 60th Birthday Bash in New Orleans
Sixty never looked so fierce! Sasha Fierce, that is. Beyonce's fashion designer mother, Tina Knowles, rang in her 60th birthday on Jan. 11 in a celeb-filled New Orleans masquerade ball.
Beyonce, 32, documented the House of Deréon owner's massive ball, which she threw with her sister Solange Knowles, 27, at Muriel's Jackson Square Restaurant.
Beyonce's hubby of almost six years, Jay Z, also attended the affair, as did Kardashian momager Kris Jenner, former Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland, and Beyonce's Dreamgirls costar Jennifer Hudson.
The night was filled with dancing, a live band, and an enormous nine-tier golden cake topped with a feathered masquerade mask. Tina rocked a gold and black skin-tight gown, showing just how good 60 can look. Beyonce wore a champagne-colored Naeem Khan gown that showed off plenty of cleavage, and sister Solange wore a bright yellow strapless gown with a rainbow-colored mask.
Not pictured was Beyonce's 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, but the festivities were presumably too late for the little one. Instead, the "XO" singer danced with her 9-year-old nephew Daniel Julez -- Solange's son with ex-husband Daniel Smith.
Tina Knowles filed for divorce from Beyonce's former manager and father Mathew Knowles in 2009 after he had an affair with actress Alexsandra Wright. Beyonce also became independent from her father's management, which she discussed in-depth in her recent HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream.
