The third annual WACO Wearable Art Gala went down in Santa Monica on Saturday, June 1, 2019 and the star-studded event brought out tons of celebs serving up their best Lion King-inspired styles at the “A Journey to the Pride Lands” -themed affair.

The Attendees fully embraced the theme of The Lion King, with some hitting the red carpet in full lion face makeup, elaborate crowns, and creative manes.

The event was truly an opportunity for guests to show off their visionary and imaginative sides when it comes to fashion and beauty.

Tina Knowles Lawson, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, and Issa Rae were just a few of the famous faces who attended the lavish event that featured some incredible works of art. 

Actress and comedienne, Tiffany Haddish was the emcee of the evening and delivered big laughs while guests enjoyed a sit-down dinner and a performance by Maxwell.

The third annual event featured a grand art gallery at the entrance to the venue before entering a cocktail lounge sponsored by Shea Moisture. Guests were then treated to a seated dinner, featuring a New Orleans-inspired menu.
