The festivites began with Beyoncé sending a crew of dancers walking in perfect formation (a la Janet Jackson’s Rthym Nation) down the red carpet to signal her impending arrival and performance:
The guests only got more glam from there (except for Samuel L. Jackson with a “who turned the lights on” expression on his face).
The hostess with the mostess Tracee Ellis Ross looked amazing in a tight snake skin sheath, Alicia Keys was rocking the natural look, Janelle Monae rocked her signature black and white, Karreuche Tran killed it in a leather dress, and more.
