The Best Celebrity Looks From 'The Lion King' Premiere, Including Beyoncé and Donald Glover
Be prepared to roar with excitement.
The Lion King remake represents another long roster of Disney creating inclusive and high-production films that shatter old ideas of racial casting. With talent like Beyoncé lending her legendary voice to the film, this film will without a doubt be historically monumental. The storyline will follow the original, but with updated songs like “Spirit” by Queen Bey.
On the red carpet, we saw Beyoncé dressed in a crystalized bespoke Alexander McQueen gown, with matching jewelry, shoes and even an encrusted clutch. Side-by-side, red carpet queen in the making Blue Ivy wore a matching black tuxedo and skirt. Donald Glover showed up wearing a Gucci cream plaid suit that was casually cut. Yara Shahidi also wore Gucci, in a double-breasted jacket and candy-colored pumps. And of course, Patrick Starrr showed up in full diva-realness along with a larger-than-life signature headpiece.
The overall feeling was legendary. Scroll through our gallery to see the best celebrity looks. The film debuts on July 19.
