Wearable art can bring in over a million dollars, that is if you're Beyoncé's mama who has her own major list of celebrity friends.  Get into Tina Lawson's star-studded inaugural Wearable Art Gala inside...


Saturday night, celebs hit up Tina and Richard Lawson's Wearable Art Gala at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles.  Think Met Gala (which goes down tonight in NYC!) for L.A.

Bey, rocking a sexy, curve hugging red Stello dress, gushed about the work her mom put in saying:

I am super proud of my beautiful mother for creating such an awesome event. Close to $1 million was raised for The WACO Theater Center to benefit young people through their mentorship programs and the arts. Mom, you inspire us all to be generous, selfless, positive, to have empathy, to love and to praise creativity in the world. It brought tears to my eyes to be a witness to what you and Richard have created together. WACO is a safe place truly Where Art Can Occur. I love you.
