Beyoncé and Blue Ivy stun in matching looks at the ‘Lion King’ premiere

Almost more anticipated than the release of “Lion King” could be what Beyoncé will wear to promote the live-action Disney film.

The singer, 37, brought high glamour to the premiere in Hollywood on Tuesday night with a bejeweled black and silver Alexander McQueen men’s blazer over a matching mini dress with floor-length glittering tulle skirt.

Bey doubled down on the glamour with her accessories, which included piles of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, a diamond-encrusted clutch and matching strappy heels. She pulled her hair back into a ponytail of cornrows braids with tiny curls slicked to the side of her head.

While Jay-Z was there to support his wife — and Destiny’s Child members Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland also attended — Beyoncé brought Blue Ivy as her date. The 7-year-old matched her mom in a tuxedo dress of her own with shoulder epaulets, also by McQueen. Like Beyoncé, Blue wore her hair in braids, but gathered them in two buns on top of her head, accessorized with sparkling bands.

While she turned heads on the red carpet, Beyoncé did what she does best: dropped a surprise single from the upcoming movie soundtrack ahead of the July 18 theater release date. The song, called “Spirit,” will also be featured an album she’s curated called “The Lion King: The Gift,” a compilation of international artists.

Beyoncé voices Nala in the film; Donald Glover voices Simba and sings “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” with the pop star. Other stars include Seth Rogen (Pumba), Billy Eichner (Timon), James Earl Jones (Mufasa), John Oliver (Zazu) and more.
