New York Fashion Week always promises excitement and unexpected celebrity sightings, and this year’s LUAR Fall/Winter 2024 show didn’t disappoint, with any other than Beyoncé gracing the event to support her nephew’s runway debut.

Amidst the industrial ambiance of a warehouse in Bushwick, designer Raul Lopez unveiled his latest collection to an electrified audience, among whom Queen Bey made a grand entrance. Adorned in a stunning ensemble borrowed from Gaurav Gupta’s Spring 2024 Haute Couture collection, Beyoncé exuded elegance in a bejeweled grey blazer paired with matching thigh-high boots, accessorized with opaque shades and a holographic version of LUAR’s ‘Ana’ bag, topped off with her thematic cowboy hat—a nod to her upcoming country album.

Surrounded by fashion luminaries and adoring fans, Beyoncé took her place between her mother, Tina Knowles, and designer Christopher John Rogers, soaking in the atmosphere as her nephew, Daniel ‘Julez’ Smith, made his much-anticipated debut on the runway. Proudly supporting Julez alongside his mother, Solange, Beyoncé added an extra layer of star power to the already buzzing event.

Titled ‘Deceptionista,’ Lopez’s collection explored themes of metrosexuality and the fluidity of gendered clothing, drawing inspiration from the rich history of masculinity across different epochs. With a blend of Lopez’s signature style and playful influences, the runway showcased designs that challenged traditional norms with a touch of romance and humor.

In addition to the main collection, the show also introduced LUAR BASICS, a forthcoming line featuring seasonless designs that distill the essence of the brand’s runway collections for everyday wear, further expanding Lopez’s creative vision and accessibility.
