To get the party started, Beyoncé, 38, rocked a gold shimmering gown. The mother of four accessorized with a custom Judith Leiber clutch in the shape of a stack of cash. In the past, both Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez have sported a similar clutch on the red carpet.
Keeping his look chic, hip-hop’s first billionaire rocked an all-black suit with a black bowtie.
The next day, Beyoncé wore a custom crystal-covered Roberto Cavalli gown, which featured a feathered design. The Lemonade singer accessorized with Schwartz diamond and emerald earrings.
In honor of this year’s annual event, Jay-Z’s foundation raised $6 million for future college students. The event welcomed a ton of celebrities including Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, DJ Khaled, Fabolous, Normani, Yo Gotti and more. Meek Mill, who was amongst the many guests in attendance, gave a glimpse of the gala’s exclusive invitation.
While posting to Instagram, Meek, 32, revealed the Rolex watch he received from his mentor. “Hov sent these as VIP passes smh. This rich s**t getting out of control lol,” he said before adding “I’m not joking.” Swizz, 41, was also surprised by the generous gift in the mail. “Levels,” Swizz wrote to his Instagram Stories. “Hov is on another level with the invite game. It came with a Daytona Rolex and a bottle of Ace of Spade Champagne.”
Throughout his career, Jay-Z has emphasized the importance of education. Back in 2003, the 4:44 rapper launched his self-titled foundation, which benefits study abroad opportunities and other programs for underprivileged families in need.
“Equipping our youth with the tools to succeed will always be a priority for me and my family," Jay-Z said via the foundation's publicist. "I’m looking forward to continuing that mission at this year’s Shawn Carter Foundation Gala Weekend, where we’ll celebrate our scholars and continue to support young people in a meaningful way.”
