Beyonce Knowles was pictured with husband Jay-Z entering the steps of the US Capitol for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration this afternoon [Jan. 21st].
Beyonce looked pretty and wore an embelished black velvet Emilio Pucci gown, with a Dior fur coat. She rocked emerald earrings and a emerald ring, both by Lorraine Schwartz Jewels. Stunning!
Just gorgeous! Loving her golden blonde color and loose curls! Jay-Z looked quite dapper himself in his suit and tie….
Beyonce sang the ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ effortlessly and beautifully in front of thousands of Americans in Washington to watch history take place for the second time.
She spoke to Zap2it recently regarding her performance:
“I can’t really think about it until it is over. It is too much! There is no way I would be able to sing.
“I know it, but it is the type of thing doesn’t matter how many times you sing it. And the biggest fear is making sure you sing it right, and sing it correctly.”
“I am practicing. I have the tour, the Super Bowl and National Anthem. I am rehearsing right now. I feel like I love this song. Of course it is really emotional and nothing is more emotional than when singing it for a cause, and I know — the day after tomorrow. I don’t want to think about it! I love the song because the melody is so beautiful, and you have so many choices. I want to keep it really elegant.”
That she did! Elegance at it’s finest! Watch it below:
Her sister Solange was impressed after the performance and tweeted:
“I couldn’t be more proud on this day.’
We are also proud on this historic day !
