Hold up … and make way for Beyoncé! Vogue’s contributing editor Andre Leon Talley hinted that she will be attending tonight’s Met Gala.
“Unfortunately the person I most wanted to see is not coming because she’s on tour,” Talley told theSkimm. It’s Rihanna. ... But I do look forward to Beyoncé."
Speculators and fans were unsure that the Lemonade songstress, 34, would be able to make Costume Institute Gala, AKA the Super Bowl of Fashion. Beyoncé kicked off her Formation world tour in Miami on April 27 and just performed in front of a packed house in Atlanta on May 1.
But the mom of Blue Ivy, with husband Jay Z, is known for her eleventh-hour appearances at the Gala. Last year, sources told Us that she arrived an hour after the last celebrity walked the carpet due to an outfit change. But it was well worth the wait: her custom-made Givenchy gown was a sight to behold with its flesh-colored tulle and strategically placed crystals.
