We're a little over a week away before Disney’s The Lion King roars into theaters on July 19th. Woot!

Last night, the stars aligned in Hollywood for the world premiere of the computer-animated remake of the traditionally animated 1994 film. And everyone was drippin' sauce.

Beyoncé - who voices Nala - stunned on the carpet in a black and silver bejeweled Alexander McQueen blazer paired with a sparkly floor-length tulle skirt. The fab chick was laced with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, a diamond-encrusted clutch, and glittery strappy heels. She even rocked a new 'do - cornrows pulled back into a ponytail with her edges laid for the gawds.

Bey's daughter, Blue Ivy, was her total mini-me rocking a similar tuxedo Alexander McQueen ensemble. Adorbs!

Another Destiny's Child reunion went down.

Singer Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams hit the carpet with their girl to show love for her new project. On the carpet, Michelle was asked if she heard any of the new music Bey worked on for The Lion King soundtrack and she immediately went radio silent - like a good friend should.
