The family that gilds together stays together.

It takes a very special person to get us to turn on post notifications on Instagram. Either you’re an absolute top-tier best friend, or you’re Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.

We just like knowing what she’s up to. And who she’s wearing.

So we were thrilled to see our phones light up with her name this morning, and even more delighted when we realised that one of the outfits in her post was by Lebanese designer Jean Louis Sabaji.

Beyoncé wore a white and gold long-sleeve mini from the brand at the 2018 Wearable Art Gala, a Los Angeles event hosted by her mother, Tina Lawson.

(We’ll get to her in a second, by the way.)

And here’s another look at it from Sabaji’s Instagram. We’re thinking he’s probably having a pretty great week after this.

The event was themed ‘From WACO to Wakanda,’ referring to the Where Art Can Occur organisaton that runs the gala, and the fictional African nation from Marvel’s Black Panther. 

It’s not Sabaji’s first connection to the film, either. He dressed one of its stars, Danai Gurira, for the LA premiere, and she looked incredible.

Beyoncé’s red carpet look for the event came via Indian designers Falguni Shane Peacock. They told WWD it was inspired by Nubian warrior queen Amanishakheto, and we love it.

And better news again? Lawson’s gown was also a Sabaji design.

In champagne tones and with Sabaji’s abstract feather detailing wrapping her up in a cape, Lawson looked stunning. Love the red lip, too.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to listen to Lemonade two or three times in a row.
