When I first heard that Beyonce was going to perform at the second Presidential Inauguration, I was a bit disappointed by the cliché presidential choice (Beyonce performed for the First Inauguration Ball too). Then again, who were they to invite to sing the National Anthem? Unapologetic Rihanna? Puhlease!
So Beyonce joined the newly sworn in President Barack Obama, the First Family and everyone else on the Inauguration Platform and, visibly nervous, mastered her emotions and her tears and started singing (you can watch her perform after the jump).
Her beautiful voice was only matched by her gorgeous, although delicate black dress designed by Emilio Pucci (following a design presented in the house’s Pre Fall 2013 Collection). She completed her look with a Christian Dior black fur coat and vibrant Lorraine Schwartz emerald green earrings and ring.
Beyonce’s nails were vibrant tangerine red and her ombre hair was perfectly bouncy, flowing down on her shoulders. But do click away and watch Beyonce perform the National Anthem, excited about the grand event! (images Getty; styledotcom)
