It was a star-studded affair Monday at the New York premiere of Usher’s new movie, “Hands of Stone.” The biopic follows boxer Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez) and his trainer Ray Arcel (Robert De Niro) as they prepare for a 1980 fight with Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher), the undefeated welterweight champion at the time.

Usher hit the red carpet in NYC looking casual, wearing jeans and a bomber jacket. The “No Limit” singer paired his look with Ports 1961 beaded sneakers. The suede shoes, detailed with beadwork and tasseled trim, retail for $990.

Two unexpected guests of the evening were Jay Z and Beyoncé. 

Following the European leg of her Formation Tour and a family vacation in Italy and France with husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy, the singer was back in New York for the premiere.

Beyoncé skipped the red carpet and sneaked out through the back of the theater, dressed in a gray pinstriped jacket and shorts, paired with Saint Laurent’s Grace suede ankle-strap sandals.
