Beyonce Knowles In Emilio Pucci -  Ceremonial Inauguration For US President Barack Obama

Beyonce Knowles was accompanied by husband Jay-Z as they made their way along the West Front of the U.S. Capital in Washington, D.C. this morning to take their front-row seats to witness the second inauguration of President Barack Obama – plus, she was also there to perform the national anthem.

The loved-up couple looked very glamorous, with him in a grey Tom Ford suit and Bey mesmerizing in an Emilio Pucci Pre-Fall 2013 black velvet and chiffon beaded cut-out long-sleeved gown under a black fur Dior coat.

Lorraine Schwartz 80 carat emerald earrings and a 50 carat emerald ring provided a dazzling touch to her regal look.

Long two-tone honey-coloured wavy locks provided the finishing touches.

Beyonce looked stunning as always but I’m most impressed with Jay-Z, who scrubbed up very well, looking very distinguished (and, dare I say, ‘grown up’) in his suit.
