Trust Beyoncé to make the fashion elite look behind the times a day before the biggest event on the style calendar, the Met Ball, even took place.

The singer took to her mother’s benefit event wearing a spectacular nymph-like headdress that would not doubt make the late Carmen Miranda deeply envious. In true super-human style, she also slipped herself (and her pregnant bump) into a stunning red silk STELLO gown:

Her mother, Tina Knowles, organised the Wearable Art Gala in order to raise money for WACO Theater centre, which encourages young people to pursue careers and scholarships in the arts. She went dressed in a gown made entirely out of leaves:

Kelly Rowland was there too, wearing what looked like dozens of tiny ballet dancers piled on top of each other. And Solange looked radiant in a red mini-dress:

The benefit event comes days after Beyoncé announced the Formation scholarship programme offering four young women funding to study the creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies.

In a statement on her website, Beyoncé said she wanted scholarships to “encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident”.
