Who epitomizes the punk movement more than Beyoncé? Tick... tick... Time's up.

It seems a highly documented last-minute arrival in a see-through gown simply wouldn't suffice this time 'round: WWD is reporting that the heavenly Beyoncé Knowles-Carter will serve as honorary chairperson deity at the punk-themed Costume Institute Gala on May 6. The invitations decked with her glorious moniker have already been printed, stamped, and sent out. And you don't turn down an invite from Beyoncé.

No word on how the non-honorary chairpeople, including Rooney Mara, Lauren Santo Domingo, Riccardo Tisci, and Anna Wintour, feel about being instantly overshadowed by Queen Bey.

We'll spare you another "Who run the world?" reference... but seriously, we're starting to think it's true.
