Beyoncé Attends The Premiere Of Her HBO Documentary ‘Life Is But A Dream’


After a busy Grammy Awards weekend here in LA, Beyoncé hauled her cookies back to NYC, NY so that she could attend the worldwide premiere event for her upcoming HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream, which is set to debut on HBO this weekend. Bey glittered on the red carpet last night in a snazzy Elie Saab gown where she posed for photos with husband Jay-Z, Oprah Winfrey and others. Oprah played moderator of sorts for the event last night, sitting with and speaking to Beyoncé on stage before the documentary was screened for guests. It was a pretty big deal, as most Beyoncé events tend to be. Click below to see some photos from the Life Is But A Dream premiere last night and read some deets about what went down.

She surprised onlookers at the Grammys over the weekend when she slipped into a geometric jumpsuit which somewhat covered up her famous curves. But for the premiere of her new documentary, Life Is But a Dream, Beyonce was back to her trademark eye-popping look. The 31-year-old displayed plenty of her decolletage in a daring sheer Elie Saab gown as she stepped onto the red-carpet in New York City. The pop star’s attire featured a transparent panel at the chest and intricate detailing which just managed to cover her modesty. Beyonce’s entire silk nude gown was adorned with glittering sequins allowing Queen B to literally light up the red-carpet. The mother-of-one boosted her height with nude stilettos and had a pair of extravagant drop earrings in her ears … The superstar has said she wanted to decided to create her new tell-all HBO film ‘Life is But a Dream’ to give her 13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter – who she has with husband Jay-Z – a source of strength and inspiration in the future and make her proud to see where she came from. She said on Tuesday night: ‘I hope that she will see all of the beautiful times [and] all the tough times that led up to her being here. I’m hoping that… it can comfort her and inspire her in her life when she needs it … I felt like it was time for me to share my story because I’ve been through so much and I have so much to celebrate, so much to share.’ Pop music’s busiest diva said she found the process of starring in, directing and producing the documentary therapeutic and said it helped her ‘heal’ from her past mistakes. She added: ‘There is something really powerful and liberating and freeing. I feel free. I feel like I’ve been able to heal from a lot of things because of this film and editing this film. And I’ve learned so much about myself, having to watch hours of footage of my life and my mistakes and things I did right and it just really has been an incredible learning experience.’

It seems like we’ve been hearing about this documentary for years now, I can’t believe we are finally just days away from its television premiere. While Beyoncé tends to be a bit over-the-top all of the time, I think she’s deffo earned the attention she draws for herself. You’d be hardpressed to find a person in the world of entertainment that works as hard and as diligently as Beyoncé does. Will I be tuning in to watch Life Is But A Dream? You bet I will. I can’t say I’m expecting to see anything all that surprising or shocking but I am very curious to see a tiny bit of what Bey’s life is really like … even if the stuff we are shown will be edited to perfection. Are YOU planning to watch this Beyoncé doc when it airs on HBO this weekend?

    Do you know if this is going to air on any other program besides HBO? I don’t have it so I was curious. I really want to see it!

    • @Ashley P — I suspect it will air outside the US on other networks but I believe HBO has exclusivity here in the US. That said, I’m sure it’ll end up online for downloading in the usual places.

    I feel sorry for Bey’s boobs – she packs those bad boys into the fabbest dresses and clothing day after day, but we know as women, that there has be a crapload of Hollywood tape keeping stuff together. And we know how painful it is to rip off at the end of said day. She looks fab here!

    “You’d be hardpressed to find a person in the world of entertainment that works as hard and as diligently as Beyoncé does”. Really ? These lines have been used to describe her for the lasts weeks and I’m so over it. Who can guarantee that? Is she like, the hardest worker of all the hardest workers from the pop music world? It just over-hype.

      There are a lot of people in the pop music world that barely do anything besides show up at the last minute. They have teams, both creative and musical, that do 90% of the work for them. Some “artists” are really just spokesmen for the brand.

    “… having to watch hours of footage of my life…”
    Hands down her favorite part of the project.

      I wish I could watch, but I don’t have HBO and won’t even be home that night. (I’m doing to see The Tenderloins — aka the Impractical Jokers — live!) So I’ll figure it out later somehow.
