Beyoncé and her 7-year old daughter Blue Ivy dazzled in heir twinning glam looks for the world premiere of the the beloved 1994 Disney animated feature, “The Lion King”.

The mommy-daughter duo hit the red carpet wearing similar Alexander McQueen tuxedo dresses, each with sweeping sheer skirts and dazzling details.



Beyoncé’s formal wear was more revealing and featured far more glittering jewels than that of her daughter, but the effect made for a perfectly coordinated entrance for the pair.

Blue Ivy rocked a crisp white dress shirt underneath her blazer and a pair of sparkling silver hairbands that showcased her braided buns.

The singer also released a new song to mark the occasion. “Spirit” is the first release from an upcoming album curated and co-produced by Beyoncé called “The Lion King: The Gift.” And it’s not the feature film’s official soundtrack; it’s an extra experience.

In a press release, the superstar singer referred to it as “sonic cinema.”

“This is a new experience of storytelling,” she explained. “I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip-hop and Afro Beat.”

It will feature a variety of different recording artists, too.

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline. Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation,” the 37-year-old continued. “It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”

Fans will get to enjoy the full album July 19, the same day the film opens in theaters nationwide.
