Do not attempt to leave the dance floor. Celebrating the success of her seventh solo studio album, Renaissance, Beyoncé gathered a star-studded list of guests at the Paradise Club in Times Square for a Studio 54-themed album party. Dubbed “Club Renaissance,” Beyoncé (naturally) arrived to the exclusive event dressed to impress.
Styled by Marni Senofonte, Beyoncé sported a glittering House of Timothy White hooded bodysuit, perfectly evoking the inspiration for Renaissance. (The 16 tracks are chock full of electrifying house music paying homage to disco and queer club culture of the 1970s and ‘80s.)
Posting a perfectly styled photo shoot of her party look, Beyoncé exemplified the disco divas and style sirens of the era, calling to mind the fashion-forward album art imagery she released in conjunction with the album, featuring the most opulent and surrealist styles from the industry’s most cutting-edge designers.
With a plunging neckline and strong, sculptural shoulders, the shimmering piece featured bishop sleeves, matching crystal-embellished gloves, and a floor-length skirt over her Wolford stockings. She accessorized with Tiffany & Co. jewels including earrings in platinum, a Tiffany Lock bangle in white gold with pavé diamonds, and a ring with over 11 carats of diamonds. She also sported bedazzled Giuseppe Zanotti platform sandals and held a dazzling record clutch with the album title and release date emblazoned on the front. With side-swept big, bouncy curls, and a warm beauty look, Beyoncé amped up the glamour with metallic silver eyeliner.
The “Break My Soul” singer was joined by her family, including her husband of 14 years, Jay-Z, mother Tina Knowles-Lawson, and father Mathew Knowles, along with close friends such as Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams, stylist Ty Hunter, and Lena Waithe.
Fellow stars in attendance included Leonardo DiCaprio, Donald Glover, Kendrick Lamar, Normani, Lala Anthony, designer Telfar Clemens, Tyler Perry, Jill Scott and more.
Beyoncé dropped her highly anticipated album at midnight on July 29, and her single, “Break My Soul,” has reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 while Renaissance as a whole has also reached the coveted number one placement on the charts.
“We did it!!! Thank you all so much for your love and support,” the superstar posted to her eponymous website. “Nothing made me happier than seeing a club full of people sing every word to every song from top to bottom. This was years of experimentation. This was years of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears. I’m so grateful and it was worth it. I’m thankful that it was received and understood. Thank you to my beautiful team for your heart and grind. Thank you to all of the brilliant collaborators and musicians, composers and everyone involved in creating this piece of art.”
She composed a special shoutout to her loyal Beyhive, “And thank you to the absolute best fans on the planet. I’m grateful to be loved by you,” signing off, “I love y’all deep. B.”
Marking Beyoncé’s first solo album in the last six years, Renaissance follows her 2016 award-winning record Lemonade. It’s set to be the first of three separate albums — Beyoncé is expected to add to the project with “act ii” and “act iii.”
