Beyonce makes a surprise appearance at New York Fashion Week at the Loire show

NEW YORK — Please stay tuned, stay calm: Beyoncé shocked everyone with her surprise front row appearance at the Loire Fashion Show on Tuesday night.

Just days after breaking the Internet (again) with the announcement of her album “Act II” and the release of two new singles, Beyoncé appeared at New York Fashion Week to mass hysteria and camera flashes from a stunned audience.

Decked out in a silver ensemble – complete with a jeweled blazer dress, a silver headpiece dripping with gems, thigh-high boots and a sparkling silver cowboy hat (for her new singles “16 Carriages” and “Texas Hold 'Em”) plus matching Loire iridescent bag – And alongside mother Tina Knowles and celebrity bodyguard Julius de Boer, the entire room changed when Queen Bey arrived at her seat moments before the show began in a Brooklyn warehouse. Sister Solange Knowles sat on a few chairs, dressed in all black, next to designer Christopher John Rodgers.

Beyoncé, her sister and her mother were not there for the night's starry time, instead her aunt, mother and proud grandmother were supporting Solange Knowles' son, Daniel “Juliez” Smith Jr., in his New York Fashion Week debut.

For his runway entry, Smith, 19, styled an oversized double-breasted leather coat with exaggerated shoulders and matching leather pants, along with elbow-length furry gloves and a large Loire backpack. Solange Knowles clapped and smiled at her son during the show's finale.

Smith mingled at the after party, meeting up with friends and sitting around someone's phone laughing.

Murmurs of an exclusive fifth-floor area of ​​the afterparty spread through the crowd, with partygoers wondering if Beyoncé was still in the building. She was already far from the main crowd, when she exited the party to the screams of photographers outside, just waiting to catch a glimpse of her as she and her sparkling cowboy hat disappeared into the back seat of a black SUV. (One photographer joked that he could stop photographing now that he had the shot of his life.)

To style in a new, more accepting way for LGBTQ+ culture.

“For Lopez, talking about sexuality wasn’t just a label or a facade, it was a trapdoor to acceptance, a way for him to hide his sexuality while growing up,” according to the show notes. Within the Decepticonista framework he was able to “deceive, shade, and ultimately transcend.”
