Beyonce's Africa-themed baby shower was bold, beautiful and henna-tattooed: All the photos

Jaw-dropping.

That's the only word we have for Beyonce's Africa-themed baby shower, an elaborately-decorated soirée filled with tribal prints, traditional music and one henna-tattooed belly. Beyonce, whose twins are due later this year, looked positively effervescent in a dramatic ensemble, perfectly accessorized right down to the last bangle.

Hubby Jay-Z was, of course, in tow, appropriately sporting a kufi cap over his all-white ensemble. Photos show the couple dancing together and smiling at each other in total ecstasy.

A video posted by Tina shows the ladies exclaiming, "Happy Carter Push Party!"

Although she landed five trophies from Sunday's Billboard Music Awards, Beyonce was absent from the big night as she celebrated with her pals. Pretty good trade-off!
