The New York City cold is apparently no match for Beyonce.
Billboard held its Women in Music luncheon at Cipriani Wall Street Friday. Despite temperatures in the 30s, Beyonce wore a burgundy wrap dress with a thigh-high slit and a pair of platform open-toe heels. She was all smiles as she posed for photos on the red carpet and took selfies with fans.
The luncheon was star-packed, with honorees including Aretha Franklin, Idina Menzel, Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea and Paramore’s Hayley Williams. When Williams accepted the Trailblazer of the Year award, she admitted to being starstruck by Queen Bey.
“Thank you for having me — I wrote [my speech] down because I was afraid I would make eye contact with Beyonce and forget everything,” she joked.
Who could blame her?
