Beyonce Parties With Madonna, Nicki Minaj, More Stars at Met Gala 2016: See the Photos

The Bey of the ball! Madonna, Nicki Minaj and many more stars partied the night away with Beyoncé at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala in NYC on Monday, May 2, and posted photos with the "Formation" singer inside the star-studded soiree.

A week after dropping her surprise new album, Lemonade, the music superstar, 34, dominated the red carpet in a skintight nude gown by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. Upon her arrival, Beyoncé took photos with the 2016 Met Ball cochair Idris Elba, her costar in the 2009 thriller Obsessed. Bey was also snapped with the event's other cochair Taylor Swift in front of a mega wall of red roses.

Inside the numerous Met Ball afterparties, observers tell Us Weekly that DJs played Bey's smash new album for partygoers and some superstar guests, including Katy Perry, who sang the lyrics of "Formation" to Orlando Bloom at one bash.

Throughout the evening, many stars posted photos with the gorgeous singer on their social media accounts. The Queen of Pop, Madonna, shared a blurry snapshot with Beyoncé and Riccardo Tisci inside the Met Ball, and included a flattering message with the amazing pic. "3 Queens!" the legendary Material Girl wrote. "Met Ball 2016!"

3 Queens! ???. Met Ball 2016!

Nicki Minaj posted a photograph with Bey inside the event on Monday night too. "Lala made me post myself lookin a hot mess," Minaj wrote alongside a selfie with Beyoncé and LaLa Anthony, the wife of NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony. "But I missed bey #MetGala2016."

After a flurry of rumors circulated that Rita Ora was possibly one of the "Beckys" featured in Beyonce's new song, "Sorry," the 25-year-old singer squashed all speculation by posting a simple selfie with Bey at the Met Ball. Ora simply captioned the photo, "Family."

New York Giants superstar Odell Beckham Jr., who's previously been featured in the pages of Vogue, was equally starstruck and in awe of Bey at the event. The athlete unabashedly took a photo with Beyoncé and captioned his black-and-white photo with a simple crown emoji and the letter B.
