BEYONCE is to show off her fashion knowledge by helping to organize this year's (13) glitzy Costume Institute Gala in New York City.
The superstar singer has been named an honorary chairperson of the high-profile fashion event, also known as the Met Ball, which will take place at the Big Apple's famous Metropolitan Museum of Art next month (06May13).
Beyonce joins famed Vogue editor Anna Wintour on the panel of co-chairs, along with designer Riccardo Tisci and actress Rooney Mara, who will act as hosts.
The news will be a boost to Beyonce, who was booed on the red carpet at the event last year (12) when she failed to stop for photographers while negotiating a set of stairs in a tight Givenchy Couture gown.
