Beyonce and Jay Z hit high in the style stakes as they headed out for a meal on Saturday at Lucali in New York.

Their outing came as the pair faced online backlash for fronting a Tiffany’s campaign, which saw some fans take issue with their decision to work with the company amid ongoing scandals about blood diamonds and the exploitation of African workers.

However, the 39-year-old superstar seemed to have put the naysayers in her rear view mirror as she stepped out with her 51-year-old husband for dinner, where they were also joined by producer and singer-songwriter The-Dream, real name Terius Youngdell Nash.

Beyonce looked fabulous in a black bodycon dress, which she paired with bright pink towering platform heels and a matching satin jacket.

The star also carried a glittery pink drawstring handbag and wore green jewels on her fingers as well as around her neck and in her ears, and wore her long hair in a glamorous high ponytail.

The Halo singer dropped fierce shots of her fashionable look on Instagram, which showed her strutting her stuff near a lift, taking a sip of a cold drink through a straw and smiling as she posed by the door of a black SUV.

All while wearing sunglasses, naturally.

Jay Z, who features on Kanye West’s new album Donda, which released on Sunday, also looked smart in a simple black suit with a crisp white shirt.

The-Dream, meanwhile, pushed the boat out a little further with his leopard-print trousers, beige jacket and boots, and blue polka dot shirt.

In the street outside the restaurant, Bey was shielded by a black umbrella and opted to sport a black face mask.

Beyonce became the fourth woman to ever wear Tiffany’s iconic Yellow Diamond necklace as she and Jay Z fronted the About Love campaign.

She follows in the footsteps of Mrs. E. Sheldon Whitehouse at the 1957 Tiffany Ball, Audrey Hepburn in 1961 publicity pictures for Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Lady Gaga at the 91st Academy Awards.

Despite the power couple convincing the jewellery brand to donate $2million (£1.4m) to Historically Black Colleges and Universities as part of their involvement in the campaign, which also includes a video advert featuring Beyonce’s rendition of Moon River, shot by Jay Z, some were still unimpressed by their decision to partner with the iconic diamond brand.

Bey’s mother Tina Knowles even jumped into the controversy earlier this week, fiercely defending her daughter and calling out ‘righteous’ people as she asked: ‘How many of you socially conscious activist own diamonds ? I thought so ! Well guess what did you go to try to check to see where the diamond came from? Probably not ! [sic.]’

Alexandre Arnault, EVP of product and communications, added in a statement: ‘Beyoncé and Jay Z are the epitome of the modern love story.

‘As a brand that has always stood for love, strength and self-expression, we could not think of a more iconic couple that better represents Tiffany’s values. We are honoured to have the Carters as a part of the Tiffany family.’
