Only Beyonce can pivot from the middle of her first international arena tour since becoming a mother to acting as honorary co-chair of the 2013 Met Gala (a night we affectionately refer to as “Fashion Prom”) without missing a beat. More accurately, not only does King Bey take to the red carpet as if she’s been doing nothing but swimming backstroke in a pool of moisturizer until the big night, she COMMANDS it. Mrs. Carter flew solo dolo for this year’s Costume Institute Benefit, but who needs a date when you’re dripping in seriously FUEGO Givenchy duds?

Beyonce made her grand entrance in a breath-taking Riccardo Tisci creation (her second Met Gala in a row wearing Givenchy). Her strapless gown was anchored by a black croc-paneled corset and cinched at the waist with a grommeted belt (very reminiscent of the one I used to hold up my bondage JNCO jeans circa 2002). The rest of her ensemble took on a kind of tribute to Katniss Everdeen, The Girl on Fire, bordered in a damask seemingly made up of digitally manipulated and mirrored photo flames. The fiery details tipped the fingers of her matching over-the-elbow gloves, completely covered her thigh-high boots, and sprawled out across her extra-long train to eye-poppingly dramatic effect. Bey balanced the look with natural makeup and loose, flowing waves, which, granted, isn’t the lime green mohawk we were all crossing our fingers for (because how UNBELIEVABLE would that have been???), but it’s hard to stay mad at a mug that stunning. What do you think of Beyonce’s 2013 Met Gala ensemble?
