Beyoncé Posts BTS Photos of Her Yellow Oscars Gown (& Tennis Ball Clutch)

Not only did Beyoncé bring down the house with her show-stopping performance of her Oscar-nominated King Richard song, “Be Alive,” but the musician also decided to pay homage to the film with her stunning yellow ensemble.

Per People, the “Formation” singer traded in her neon dress for a strapless Valentino Haute Couture yellow gown at the 2022 Oscars. The gown featured a cap that extended from her shoulders to the floor. While she accessorized the outfit with a pair of diamond drop earrings, our eyes instantly gravitated to her clutch purse.

The Grammy Award-winning artist rocked a yellow bedazzled tennis ball purse, which is a nod to the film (that earned a total of five Oscar nominations). Queen B posted behind-the-scenes photos of her glam look on Instagram. In a few pics, Beyoncé was shown holding hands with her husband Jay-Z, who donned a black and white suit.

After the performance, the “Lemonade” singer rocked a similar tennis-themed outfit during her outstanding performance at the Oscars. She performed in Compton, California, where the tennis star grew up. The piece featured an off-the-shoulder feather top and long opera gloves. Lastly, the mid-rise skirt had a large slit down the side, allowing her to show off a silver garter.

King Richard follows the journey of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams and their father/coach, Richard Williams (played by Will Smith). The 53-year-old actor took home the award for Best Actor for his outstanding performance in the movie. Beyoncé's song was nominated for the Best Original Song, earning her first-ever Oscar nomination. 

Beyoncé gave a performance we will never forget.
