On Sunday, March 27, Beyoncé served us two fabulous tennis-themed looks at the 2022 Oscars, both of which were positively dripping in diamonds.
The chart-topper opened the show with a performance of “Be Alive,” her Oscar-nominated song from “King Richard,” dressed in a custom David Koma tennis ball dress and joined by daughter Blue Ivy, 10.
The 40-year-old singer accessorized her sheer, feather-trimmed gown with matching gloves and Amina Muaddi “Karma” pumps ($1,345) in a complementary lime hue.
She added 150 carats of diamond bangles and two diamond rings, a 50-carat emerald-cut bauble and a 20-carat cushion-cut sparkler, all from Lorraine Schwartz, her go-to jeweller.
Schwartz’s giant green gemstone earrings formed part of the singer’s stunning look at the event.
The “Single Ladies” creative star wore a dazzling rhinestone garter while singing at the same Compton court where Serena and Venus Williams once practised.
Beyoncé chose a Valentino Haute Couture gown and matching cape in bold neon yellow for the Oscars ceremony, taking cues from the sport.
The real show-stealers, however, were her Lorraine Schwartz earrings, which weighed in at a whopping 150 carats.
The statement pair featured seven rows of dripping diamonds reaching to Queen B’s shoulders; Queen B added to the glam factor by slipping a 35-carat ring, also by Schwartz, over her yellow opera gloves.
In keeping with the theme, the “Halo” singer wore a sold-out $3,995 Judith Lieber clutch shaped like a tennis ball, which she flaunted in a fun Instagram snap en route to the afterparty.
Despite not winning Best Original Song, she joined her husband Jay-Z at his afterparty at Chateau Marmont, where she was joined by Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Emily Ratajkowski, Zo Kravitz, and others.
