Beyoncé Celebrates ‘Life Is But a Dream’ Premiere with Jay-Z, Solange, and Oprah

Who’s badder than Beyoncé? The pop icon was glowing as she attended the premiere of her HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream in New York on Tuesday. A blonde Bey turned heads in a beaded nude gown by Elie Saab while posing on the red carpet and speaking to reporters.

She was surrounded by her family including husband Jay-Z, sister Solange, and mother Tina, along with her friends The-Dream, Angela Bassett, Luke James, ?uestlove, Chris Rock, Russell Simmons, Victor Cruz, and more.

Before the screening, she sat down with Oprah for an interview about the film and revealed that Blue Ivy inspired the title, which comes from her daughter’s favorite nursery rhyme, “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”

The revelatory documentary, which Beyoncé executive produced, received Oprah’s stamp of approval. “People are going to be amazed. … People are going to feel a connection to her that they didn’t feel before because she shows us how real she is,” she told omg! INSIDER. “I think that documentary is a game changer.”

The star-studded crowd then headed to the after-party, where Solange played DJ, and the sisters were seen doing the bunny hop.

Earlier in the day, Oprah interviewed Bey for “Next Chapter,” which airs Saturday, February 16, at 8 p.m. on OWN followed by Life Is But a Dream at 9 p.m. on HBO.
