Beyoncé - Beyoncé named honorary Met Ball chair

Beyoncé has been named honorary chairperson for the Met Ball.

The superstar will join legendary Vogue editor Anna Wintour, designer Riccardo Tisci and actress Rooney Mara in their hosting roles at the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute gala, which this year pays tribute to the Punk movement.

Several invitations emblazoned with Beyoncé's name have already been sent out, according to WWD. The star-studded bash is due to take place on May 6 and the accompanying Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition will run from May 9 until August 11.

Andrew Bolton, the Costume Institute curator, previously said: ''Punk broke all the rules when it came to fashion, and everything became possible after punk.

''Its impact on high fashion became so enormous, and continues at the same time.''

Beyoncé turned heads at last year's Met Ball in a sheer sequin Givenchy Haute Couture gown designed by Riccardo Tisci, with an elaborate purple feather train. The racy dress required her to don a nude bodysuit to avoid flashing too much flesh.

However, the garment divided fashion critics, with some saying it left little to the imagination.
