Beyonce has been named as the honorary chair of this year's Met Costume Gala.
The Bootylicious singer will preside over what is considered to be one of the glitziest nights of the year alongside other stars including Rooney Mara, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and Givenchy fashion designer Riccardo Tisci, reports Women's Wear Daily.
It means Beyonce - who has been having a big year with her Super Bowl performance and the announcement of her upcoming tour - will help to see in the Punk: Chaos To Couture exhibition, which runs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art from May 9 to August 14.
And she might also be on the traditional receiving line at the annual Costume Institute Gala on May 6, which is known as the Oscars for the fashion industry and always attracts a dazzling line-up of celebrities.
