Beyonce Watches NBA All-Star Game Wearing a $21,945 Gucci Kimono

Beyonce Knowles was spotted at the Smoothie King Center last Sunday night wearing a Gucci Kimono worth a whopping $22,000.

The superstar was with her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy Carter sitting courtside during the 66th NBA All-Star Game held at the stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Beyonce and Blue Ivy’s attire that night was designed by Gucci. Blue Ivy’s dress was a green children’s broderie Anglaise, which according to US Magazine, costs a cool $1,790, while Beyonce wore a long silk Gucci kimono with tropical prints and a colorful fur trim. She paired the Japanese traditional garment with a white baby tee and distressed denim jeans.

According to Billboard, the Gucci kimono from the brand’s SS17 Ready-to-Wear collection costs $21,945.

The kimono has not been recently worn as a fashionable clothing, even in Japan. It is now only used typically for important festivals or formal moments. However, it did recently gain public attention in the Western world as a fashion inspiration via the kimono-styled women’s jackets sold by U.K. fashion stores back in 2014.
