All the Ways Beyoncé's Outfit Paid Tribute to Kobe and Gigi Bryant
From the suit to the nails.
It wasn't just Beyoncé's bold yellow suit that paid homage to Kobe Bryant during her performance at his and his daughter's Celebration of Life memorial today in Los Angeles, California. Eagle-eyed fans saw that Queen Bey's ensemble had a multitude of tributes to Bryant and his daughter, Gianna.
According to StyleCaster, Beyoncé's performance included "Halo" and "XO," which she said was one of Bryant's favorite songs. During her time at the mic, she wore a pin that read "KB." She was introduced as "a very close friend of the Bryant family," which could also explain her nail art. One hand read "GIGI" in gold lettering and the other had "KOBE." Her tips were purple to complement her yellow suit, making for a perfect way to pay to incorporate the Lakers' signature colors into her performance. Bey topped off the look with a bold amethyst ring and matching earrings, which also featured purple stones.
"I'm here because I love Kobe, and this was one of his favorite songs. I want you to sing it so loud, they'll hear your love," she said.
At the close of her performance, Beyoncé kissed her hand, looked up to the sky and said, "I love you."
In addition to Beyoncé, the service included performances from Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera. Family friends Diana Taurasi and Sabrina Ionescu, along with Coach Auriemma, Bryant's best friend Rob Pelinka, Shaquille O'Neal, and Michael Jordan spoke at the event.
