Beyonce wore a crushed velvet gown with high thigh split, while her husband dressed to impress in a 3-piece suit with overcoat and fedora hat. The party dress code was enforced by JAY-Z's security team. You didn't get in if you weren't dressed to the 9ines.

Mariah Carey Struts into Roc Nation Brunch with Bryan Tanaka

Mariah Carey was all smiles as she exited the World Trade Center after attending JAY-Z's Roc Nation Brunch honoring himself on Saturday. That cop isn't holding a citation pad. It looks like he's taking photos of Mariah with his cell phone while on duty. Cops are groupies, too.

    I like that pic of Monica, Winnie and Jasmine. Beautiful ladies!! Where is the QUEEN B? I'm so not here for Blues father lol. I'm not into him and he's milking the cheating for publicity.

  • dontgetblocked

    Seems a bit ghetto!

  • MRiGOThim

    Beyonce stayed cuz "Jigga Man" got dat hammer in dem pants #EGGPLANTS :P

  • Panther Charleston

    Remy Ma looks fantastic. Carey throwing shade. She know them her walk-around-the-house clothes. Hey, Monica boo.

  • Panther Charleston

    I'm here for the Iggs all day long. But it looks like she dipped by Ross and was like, hurry, give me the fanciest thing ya got!

  • MRiGOThim

    Jay looked good Beyonce not so much...
    T.I. looked good...
    Not sure what Mariah was wearing but okay...
    Dej Loaf tried it lookin like Snoop from the Wire
    Omari "Ghost" Hardwick can get it any day of the week
    Christian Combs looked cute just stop with those ghetto poses #MODEL
    Remy Ma looks so uncomfortable being a LADY, lol

  • speakinmymind

    Beautiful people styled impeccably. Looks like a great time.

  • Diva_woman

    Mostly everyone looks nice. I love Monica’s coat and boots, Beyoncé lost the last of the twins weight, she looks great as well. Mariah looks tacky I’m sorry. Lala finally doesn’t look tacky lol, I like the clean white. Jaden is such a handsome boy but is deadset on looking like he’s from another planet. It looked like a nice event overall.

  • BadAss Will

    Damn Beyonce makes Jay-Z look Good! Monica looks good. Couldn't help the shade on Jay-Z honoring himself ?? I thought he has this brunch every year even when not nominated ????

  • Allihave2say

    JZ was well dressed but seems to never really look good. Beyonce's body is beautiful but her attire is tired, a repeat of her past just new fabric and not flattering.

    When Cardi B out classy's the supposedly class raised Beyonce, that says a lot.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Monica is holding her own with the models. She looks beautiful.

  • Vonn

    I really like Monica's coat. So...Iggy was really invited, or a + one?

  • Vonn

    Mariah is not dressed to he 9's & managed to get in.

  • Rayne

    What size shoe does Mariah wear? A men’s 13? Damn! Looks like a tranny foot. ???

  • Nice

    Monica looks amazing! Mariah must have missed the memo on the dress code. Why is Iggy there? That’s actually a good look for Jayden.

    I’m not fond of Beyoncé’s dress but she looks beautiful. Jay Z, just no.

  • TMW

    He does. Clive Davis honored Jay Z at his annual pre-grammy party. Jay Z gave a pretty dope interview to Van Jones too. 45 got his feelings hurt and was tweeting about it - he doesn’t watch CNN though...

  • Harley

    Monica DID NOT style herself ... she has been working with stylist Adele Samuels...

  • Harley

    Lala looks a mess

  • bigtyme

    Everytime I see Jayden with this hair I think of his mama in the 90s

    Jay-Z looks like somebody's old ass grandfather. And can we take a guess as to how much alcohol he and Beyantsay drink every day? It's a no, grandpa. And go to your damned AA meetings. Mic check 1.

    Beyantsay still wearing throwback clothes from the House of Hideous and the House of Hell No (defunct House of Dereon). Mic check 2.

    Love Monica's coat and velvet hot pants. It's a yasss, girl. Mic check 3.

    Mariah looks like somebody's old ass grandmother that shows up to soccer practice in full makeup and disco drag gear. It's a hell no, dahlink. Mic check 4.

    It's a bug's life La La still walking around looking like an effing cartoon bug. Love the white slacks tho. It's a maybe except the bug eyes throw me off for real everytime. Mic check 5.

    Nice coat Jaden but is that your lover man trailing behind you trynna look like he's not with you? It's a no. Don't hide if you're gay cuz it looks a little obvious don't ya think? Mic check 6.

    DJ Khaled thinks he's so such-and-much. He looks like cross-eyed comedian Buddy Hackett from back in the day that hosted You Bet Your Life. It's a fat ass hell no, bruh. And stop skipping your weight watchers meetings! Mic check 7.

    Iggy Azalea is wearing circa 2009 mules I saw in Walmart 8 years ago. It's a hell no, boo. Mic check 8.

    Whoever that is in the yellow, please give back the clothes to whomever you borrowed them from. It's a no, Big Bird. Mic check 9.

    Broke ass TI wearing those yeast infection pants. Pay yo damned taxes. It's a no. Mic check 10.

    Okay, I think my mic sounds nice check....


    Monica, Beyoncé, and Cassie slayed the girls. Beyoncé and that youthful MUG ?

  • bemetoo

    Lol u is carzy....funny af

  • bemetoo

    Monica has been styling herself lately

  • Kayke

    Iggy met with Roc Nation last year.... I'm thinking they inked something and she's on the roster or maybe just because she's working with Roc Nation songwriters.

  • Vonn

    Thanks. I hope not though.

  • Vonn

    Thanks. I hope not though.

  • Kayke

    Lol, she most definitely did.

  • Kayke

    She stayed cause shes not a billionaire without him and he isn't one either, without her.
    Only idiots stay for the hammer when their nails arent the only one he is hammering.

  • A D N

    I love LaLa's outfit. The tank could have been longer. Also, who is the lady in red?! Now, that's a great suit with heels! TI looks great as usual. Omari and the Power actor with him look great. Jay Z and Beyoncé pose well in photos...good practice technique they are applying.

  • MRiGOThim

    I didn't see Cardi B where was she????

  • MRiGOThim

    Lmao, Miss Peaches Miss Peaches!!!

  • Allihave2say

    This is what I'm saying! She is so well dressed you'd miss her. She's in the middle wearing an off the shoulder dress with a short bob and red nails. She looks amazing and classy is the look for her. IDK how that will translate in the rap game but she looks so much better.

  • Allihave2say

    Sorry. Correction: Card B was on the other post at JZ but she still looks better than B all classed up.

  • interestingconcept1

    LOL! Jay Z looks straight out of the 40's, so that makes him what about 75+years old,ugh...Looking up at that mug while making love, LAWD..and he cheated!?? Lol. Beyonce is a weak woman.

  • interestingconcept1

    Hot Ass Mess

  • Soon2BWife

    I love Ghost, Omari not so much. Man, put your fist down....for obvious reasons.

  • Coco_Butter

    Mariah is wearing a $11k Louis Vuitton dress which seems appropriate for the occasion to me. It’s a brunch not a white tie affair. I lover her booties too

  • Bob Dilla

    No Nicki Minaj...


    black men used to dress like that everyday.. how the mighty have fallen. nice fit hov .

  • jrock

    Mariah's feet look bigger than Shaq's and I think he said he wears a custom size 23 shoe so I guess Mariah's big ass feet take bout a size 24. She used to be a fav but her head issues and those voices she listens to have made her think fake, act fake, be fake, smile fake. Just too much fakeness and pretentiousness. Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

    And who in the ham sammich invited Ivana? Nobody wants see those 85 year old dead ass titties. Put a damned sweater on lady. People gotta eat at this event.

  • Gone Too Far

    Justine Skye is a professional social climber because it’s definitely not her music. That shamari Maurice guy taught her well

  • T3

    OMG! I say this all the time! Never looks twiced at Omari. But Ghost, laaaaawd!

  • CaramelDrop

    Yes, Yes, and YES!! Beyonce usually slays these events but Mrs. Monica may have just shut everybody down in my opinion!! Monica ??Did ?? THAT??

  • Renee26

    A lot of people in these shots are not dressed to the 9's...ion think the dress code existed. Can't have after 5 attire for brunch...unless you're Beyonce'

  • Guess Who

    Dej loaf looks like a damn fool.

  • Trace da Ace

    i agree 100%.....but you know queen Bey was not gonna let anybody dress better than her! lol

  • Trace da Ace

    everybody looks nice....some of them....IDK I think Mariah missed the memo.....I dont think the "gangsta" look is working for Jay anymore....and for the life of me, I CANNOT take Jayden Smith seriously.....maybe its because I have a thing for his daddy?? IONO.....

  • Vegas1989

    Every time I see TI in these extrasemeduim suits I think of picture day of my brother when he was in the 5th grade and this also looks like an Easter Suit. I hope TI remembered his Easter speech or he is going to get a whipping,...LOL

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Winnie Harlow
    I have read the most horrible posts abt this young lady. Nasty attitude & mouth.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    shamari Maurice guy: who?

  • Renee26

    Especially since her hubby was the man of the hour


    Is he trying to IS HE TRYING TO RUN FOR AN OFFICE IN THE NEAR FUTURE, is this why all the I'm sorry beyonce interviews........This fool sold drugs to his people, and help destroy lives, where is the restitution, typical USER SAGITAURUS,
    wake up beyonce, he will cheat again.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Soooo, we know he was honoring himself. Cuz auntie done told us about fifty times up top!! lol

  • Gone Too Far

    Shamari Maurice is this skinny black guy whose infamously friends with a lot of celebrity kids and knows how to get connections and get acquainted with celebrities also. Shamari and Justine became friends in 2012 through the internet before Justine got brand new and dropped all her NY and tumblr friends to hang out with the Jenners and their famous friends and only hangs around high profile people like he taught her. She’s lucky none of that backfired for her because doing things like that isn’t a good look

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Thanks. Did not know that. Hope it does not backfire on her.

  • Gone Too Far

    She has done well so far. She’s managed to become best friends with these famous folk so shamari taught her very well on how to maintain the friendships

  • Japan310

    Where was Nicki Minja?? I haven't seen not one photograph of her at any events.

  • Japan310

    I love Jaden Smith outfit, he's looking real nice.
