Beyonce and her eldest daughter Blue Ivy arrived for the world premiere of Disney's "The Lion King" at the Dolby theatre in Hollywood, CA on July 9.

Beyonce voices Nala in "The Lion King," which also stars voice actors Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, and Billy Eichner as Timon.

Beyonce's costume and cornrows hairdo were the talk of the evening. According to Redcarpet-fashionawards, she wore a bespoke crystal chandelier embroidered tuxedo dress with a dégradé crystal embroidered skirt by Alexander McQueen. She accessorized her outfit with crystal jewelry, crystal embroidered pin heel sandals, and a crystal chandelier embroidered box clutch all from Alexander McQueen.

Her natural hair was styled in cornrows with some pin curls and gelled down edges. Her stylist added a hair extension ponytail in keeping with the Lion King theme.

Daughter Blue Ivy wore a black mini version of her mother's outfit, complete with embroidered crystal shoulder pads on her jacket and a black crystal embroidered skirt all by Alexander McQueen.

After the star-studded Hollywood premiere, Disney dropped Beyonce's new single at midnight. The single, titled "Spirit", is off the Lion King soundtrack. The underwhelming track garnered less than 100,000 views by 7 a.m. - a pitifully low number for a star of Beyonce's caliber. It was one of the few signs that Beyonce may not be the star power she once was.

The Lion King opens in theaters nationwide next Friday, July 19.

    I really hate the overlined lip trend.

  • Dr. P

    I do NOT like her hair, or her beat...she looks tired, fluffy and ummm much older than her mid 30s...and I live for Beyoncé but this IMO is NOT it....but umm bring on the ratchets with these hideous braids...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    If I see one bird with those cornrows in their hair this summer we fightin...Best believe Bey took those horrid looking braids out right after she seen those unflattering photos...She cant do no wrong in my eyes but idk this House of Dereon outfit does not compliment her beauty at all....

  • iWasteTime

  • StoneColdLady

    Blue is very tall

  • Julia Lyons

    I know....Beyonce just missed it completely with this look from top to bottom. Even the makeup is horrid.

  • deadellamore

    Forget her outfit, can we applaud all this Black Excellence?!

  • iWasteTime

    No mention of her being an EP on the movie or curating and producing the 2019 soundtrack.
    She triple dipped on Disney. Wheew Chile, the wealth

  • oshh16

    LOL most of these fashions were horrid.

  • T Willis

    Beyonce has zero fashion sense. Zero. And she looks high asf lol.

    I just watched the 1994 version The Lion King the other day, but I won’t be seeing this version. It looks too National Geographical for me to sit 1.5+hrs ?????... and I don’t think I could sit through horrible remakes of the songs from the 1994 version?????

  • rory

    The Future (Young Ones) look beautiful!!!

  • Marlika

    Lance Gross daughter is super cute!!!

    Beyoncé and Blue ????? Fire the stylist! Blue would’ve been better of putting together her own outfit.

    Steph spit out those girls!! ?

    Look at all those ugly slow looking bi racial children. ?????? Yeah I said it and don’t care who likes it or not!!?????

    I’m so sick of this stupid trend of a suit with sneakers. The crap always has and looks stupid!?????

  • oshh16

    I never saw the original.

  • Meme

    I love her hair ? however, I see the general consensus is "it's a no"

    Bluuey is lovely as usual looks like a very sensible and together little girl, I bet she's the best big sister!

  • stav

    When is Beyoncé going to get a stylist with style? The whole look is one big mess!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    On da flip .... did see the Mulan trailer last night and it looks good ... I will see that Disney movie .... and I'm not supporting this one !!!!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4c44c9dc225deb28ece7b19cadce803042e1b160fc8c2ae25e7fee111c25144a.gif Petty asf with hexanbeast forever !!!!

  • The Shy Cookie

    I still wish this role was voiced by Lupita like it originally was planned but whatevs. I like her bag.

  • Gloria

    Beyoncé..... I see what you were trying to do but no. Issa mess.

  • The Shy Cookie

    The song remakes are AWFUL but I still want to see it. Lion King embodies my childhood. I just rewatched the Broadway play.

  • REGINAGEORGE

    She look like a witch

  • Nita Pie

    Bey is aging gracefully

  • Bam Bam Li

    I'm with you sis ?????

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Marsai looked SO beautiful and normani too! Just gorge. Whatever with the rest.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Seeing her with darker hair throws me off
    I don’t like her hair, but love the tuxedo dress and Blue Ivy!

  • Carrington

    Two celebrity disappointments in terms of style that have always bothered me a little:
    1) Janet
    2) Beyoncé
    I don't know, but I've always thought that they should have the best stylists IN the game and they always look like a cousin laid their clothes out on the bed for them.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Im not either. Issa shame i loved the lion king but i was not ready for the popularity edition of the movie. I love the geography channel and even still im like nah

  • Shira Harding-James

    They are remaking Mulan?!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Yep looks good too ..... saw the trailer last night ..... didn't see Mushu ..... but I loved Mulan .... the trailer looks good

  • Kanyade

    I don't think the live action version of Mulan will be a play by play (with songs and/or characters and/or plot) as was The Lion King. It is more a telling of the actual story. At least that's what I read in the comments of the vidja for the trailer I watched. :)

    Alfre Woodard's dress is pretty, but her, Beyonce, and lil Blue are all overdressed.

    The Curry's look is more appropriate to me for a kids movie.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Yeah that trailer was action packed ..... didn't look Kiddie ...... I do want to see it

    I think Beyoncé and blue look beautiful... not everyone have to rock the same tired ass style... and how do u trash a person’s fashion sense?? It’s supposed to be for THEM and what makes THEM feel good... y’all are a trip ?

  • NewNew

    Please don't come for Ms. Jackson (if you're nasty). She looks fantastic at every age. https://media0.giphy.com/media/qhd5CQTxDp52E/giphy.gif

    My ex always used to say that her and her mother looked like witches . He could never see what all the hype was about.

  • Carrington

    Same way we trash their music, movies and, choice in mates. What's a TRIP is coming to a blog where the order of the day is talking $hit and then getting in your feelings when people talk $hit.

    There are ENTIRE television shows on television where the PREMISE is judging fashion. That's what fashion SHOWS are for... that's what fashion MAGAZINES are for... but when you judge BEYONCE', suddenly you're a trip? Y'all tickle the absolute F*CK out of me.

  • MsSapphire9800

    All the children are beautiful...Tracy Morgan daughter is his twin. Lawd Beyonce looks horrible and why do she have weave in those front braids if her hair is down the middle of her back..just asking.

  • Carrington

    Uh uh.... that's my cousin and I can be honest and call a thing a thing. Janet will NEVER be known for her style. And this new hair pulled back so tight her eyes look like they hurt... naw, cuh. LOL I think J Lo has the best style of all.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    No Mirror Fashion is the IT thing now! https://media2.giphy.com/media/XIse2rqf1RlToHmpCu/giphy.gif

  • NewNew

    Janet is my spirit animal. She's my favorite artist of all time, hands down. But there might be some truth to your statement (it's real hard for me to admit it though).

    JLo does have good stylists but I'm no fan of hers. She's been stealing from black artists for decades.

    For the life of me I can't think of any super stylish singers right now. What a shame, no one stands out.

    Not everyone has to like this style. If we think the look is trash, we have our right to voice it like I'm sure you have on other people not named Beyonce.

  • Carrington

    EXACTLY, cuh. Just because YOU like the Millie Jackson/Clarke sister rhinestone and too much jewelry 1988 look doesn't mean that everyone has to. I've seen Beyoncé look nice and noted that Beyoncé looked nice... why can't people NOT like a Beyoncé outfit too? I don't understand why people get so emotional about this woman. I don't understand.

  • CookieMobster

    You are stew-pid as hell for that gif. Consider it stole. Can't wait for the opportunity to send that shit to my man and be like, I'm finna dress so sexy for you tonight.... Wanna peek at what you'll be getting big daddy??? And BOOOOOM send that shit right there!!! Bwhahahahahaha

  • Carrington

    Yeah, I'm not a J Lo fan like that either BUT, I will give credit where it's due - she and Melania Trump are pretty consistent.

  • MsSapphire9800
  • Kimocha

    A lot of ppl been hating on Beyonce's look but I love her dress and shoes and Blue Ivy looked adorable... I loved Lance Gross and his daughter's African attire too... And Kelly Roland's son Titan was too damn cute in that suit he had on.... BUT Tiffany Haddish looked a Hot Ass Mess as usual, smdh!!!... And 14 yr old Marsai Martin is waayyy too young to be having her cleavage out like that and be acting just a lil bit too grown-ish for me!

  • Alextra Ballard

    ???In my Randy Jackson’s voice *Issa ah no for me dawg*

  • interestingconcept1

    My goodness Beyonce! Whoever styles her should be fired immediately! That jacket didn't camouflage her weight gain it made it more noticeable-Wide Receiver! The makeup is awful, cornrows are struggling and looks like I did them- I cant braid. Just awful.

  • Renee26

    Lordt fix it! Marsai got her little breast out ?

  • Renee26

    Love Alfre's gown and Kelly's make-up

  • Ni Ni

    Exactly! They lose any type of common sense they may have had when it comes to this woman. I've given her accolades when she was well put togethe before too. But, they have a hissy fit when you give your honest opinion and not kissing @zz. Somebody posted about the other kids at the event being ugly. If someone posted that comment about their idol's child it would have been, "kids are off limits". Gimme a break.?

  • Nita Pie

    She close though.... RIght??? lol

  • Ni Ni

    What!?! Lemme go see. I didn't go through all the pics.

  • Coy little wink

    The dress is super busy. I would have toned down the hair and jewelry personally. And removed that drape at the bottom to show off the legs. It's too much going on but that's just me...

    J.lo doesn't miss a beat, even when she's going to the gym her look is together.

  • interestingconcept1

    Dont know what's been going on with Marsai lately, but she needs to slow down.

  • interestingconcept1

    True but that style isnt the one for Beyonce, you have to be taller and slimmer to wear that dress it's too busy for her shape and weight.

  • Bashi22

    All mix children are not beautiful I see tons of none mix children who are super beautiful. If these black men procreate with their own kind their children will have a better aesthetic features. Please don’t @ me about all children are beautiful.

  • joel adams

    You’re right about that. She speaks like she reads at a 7th grade level

  • Bashi22

    Beyoncé don’t have a great speaking voice so I will pass too.

  • T Willis

    Omg I want to see it on broadway... ?

  • leapyearpisces

    I agree 100%. I always say that the Rock has done an injustice by not procreating with a black woman. If the Rock and Serena Williams would have made a baby, I am convinced he or she would be a real life superhuman in the flesh. I could go on about making the kids susceptible to ailments and diseases that may would not incur, but I don't have time to be arguing with folks today (traveling for work), but you are not alone and I understand your sentiment, and we have every right to want to preserve our people. Other races (asians, south asians (indians), etc.) are unapologetically vocal about preserving their people.

  • T Willis

    Please see the original lol. 25+ years later it is still a one of Disney’s best films. Best!

  • Bree

    When I first heard that Beyonce was the voice of Nala, I was very disappointed. They needed someone like Anika Noni Rose or even Kelly Rowland for that matter. Beyonce is nobody's actress and I'm all for living your dreams and going for what you want. Acting is not a skill that Beyonce possess. I know this was probably a big budget film or they wanted to get butts in the seat but Beyonce as Nala is an injustice to the original Nala and original movie as a whole. I'm not a fan of what she's wearing on the red carpet. It gives me Josephine Baker vibes which is really weird to me.

  • Kimberly King

    No ma'am, Baddie Bey. No to the ma'am ! I liked the earrings though. But the outfit and hair. Just no. I hate silver ! She looks like she's in her 40s in these close ups.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Nah she gained a lot of weight after she had her twins, but she puts out so many Photoshoped pictures that it's shocking to see her real weight. She needs to embrace her new permanent weight.

  • SaltineCrackers

  • Capricornlady

    Lance's daughter is growing into her looks.

    It's an Alexander McQueen -- but it looks like a Tina Knowles-Lawson.

    I like her hair. She looks different. Not one of her best looks! older and bigger maybe?

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Her clothes always look so dated

  • starbright9449

    She looks stunning!!

  • Coy little wink

    She lost all that weight last year for Coachella. I think it's that jacket.. has to be structured to support all those jewels

  • starbright9449

    People are saying this look is too much but when they aren't saying that its: "I'm underwhelmed by Beyonce and her looks and choices, she doesn't Wow or stand out." Smh can't please everyone.

  • Coy little wink

    But she lost all that weight for Coachella last year...its not permanent

  • Jethro

  • ShWa

    Bey looks better here in this angle , that last post had her looking not so hot as he really is.

  • Bashi22

    I am in agreement with you Reggie Bush also would pass down great aesthetic if he had procreated with a chocolate sister.

  • Bashi22

    Lol ? still a bad voice

  • Sassie

    Beyonce can't dress. Never could. But she's a hard worker. Will give her that. Kelly is GORGEOUS. I like Tiffany's outfit...Chance the Rapper's baby's mother looks very manly and not attractive at all. But his taste, I guess.

  • Sassie

    I'm in my 40's and she looks older than me in these pics....that says a lot, cuz I drink everyday and don't work out like I should, LOL

  • Sassie

    She's just lending her voice, right? No actual acting needed.

  • Sassie

    Yeah, those braids are wack and thin as hell.

  • Bree

    Whether she is lending her voice or not, someone else still should have been the voice of Nala. I'm sure as she was reading the lines, she had to act out sounds while she was in the booth doing the work, or get into character. Other than that it means we are hearing Beyonce and not Nala.

  • Bree

    Amen.

  • Sassie

    I THOUGHT she had some hair in those thin ass braids. Her real hair might be long-ish, but it's not thick and voluminous. My hair used to be long-ish, but was thin as hell. I always hated that.

  • MsPam

    Agree on the earrings.

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    Bey face looks a lil chunkie....i didn't know she was a voice in the movie.....That's it for me....i can't stand her speaking voice...it'll be a no go for me

  • The Chosen One

    I'm sorry, but her choice of clothing is terrible. It looks like she is waiting to be hung over a dinner table in someone's home. That chandelier look has to go.

  • The Art

    Welp! No one has ever accused her of being stylish...and rightfully so.

  • Renee26

    IKR... Protect her from the wolves Jesus

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Can’t do anything but laugh at Bey style it’s to atrocious to get mad! ??

  • Rahab

    Maya Rudolph imitates her accurately on SNL.

  • SaltineCrackers

    She didn't lose that much weight for Coachella. If you look at the amuture videos and photos and compare them to post pregnancy photos you can tell. What they did do in the costume department was make sure that they gave her slimming designs e.g. high wasted Jean shorts that covered her stomach.

    Without the heavy dance schedule and alleged diet, that is her new permanent weight. It's normal for women's bodies to change and adjust as they carry their children.

  • interestingconcept1

    I agree. I mean come on, the whole fashion industry at Beyonce's feet and this is it?

  • Navybeans95

    I like her and Blue...but this is ugly af and her ears look painful with all the piercings..
    Too murch.....

  • bigtyme

    Love B...in the fashion industry, her stylist is considered to be talented. Most of the time it leaves us regular folks like wtf though ?????

  • bb1812

    Bey's entire look coulda been sooo much better. Blue & Kelly looked great, Normani too.

  • Faithz

    Sharp and great look right here...

  • Sassie

    But when u are in the limelight like she is, you are gonna be a target for scrutiny. Beyonce don't care....her and Jay sold out stadiums not too long ago, LOL

  • what?why

    Blue is a nice combination of her parents. Now Beyonce needs to get a new stylist - she looks horrible, from head to toe.

  • jujumanji

    What is Raven Symone wearing? And is Marsai rocking a quilt? I guess...

  • Dahl

    It’s too late, they’ve already gotten to her. She carries herself with too much worldly worn wisdom to still be an innocent, unfortunately...

  • SkittlesDUH

    Whoever styled Yonce needs to be fired they did a horrible job here like what in the finger wave hell? Idk if she gained weight or not but the dress isn't flattering idc how much it cost ... I like her bigger so the weight isn't the issue here for me at all

  • MsPam

    Yes!

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Don't want to hear her stupid, slow voice in this movie. They know she sucks at live action, so they give her a voice acting job? Smh.

    She’s the tackiest dressed celeb ever. This looks like a set from the House of Dererion. ?????

  • Wayup!

    The jacket look like something her mom would wear....

  • Malai

    lol true ??

  • Wayup!

    I like the hair what I don't like is that it looks like it was done unprofessionally the spaces in between the braids are not even some of the spaces are bigger than others I which makes the back look extremely wrecked.....
    The outfit makes her look fat. I don't care if its water game I don't care if she is prego she does not look attractive in any of this...
    On a scale of 1 to 10 this look gets ...-5.....?

  • LuvR

    Same thing I feel about the Braxton's and Venus and Serena...makes no sense why y'all still looking busted with all that money when there are YouTubers out here that could hook you up right lovely...
