Beyonce in feathered Givenchy at the Met Gala: just completely awful?

Beyonce flew solo at the Met Gala last night. And by “solo” I mean without Jay-Z, because I’m pretty sure Bey had some stylists and feather-fluffers around her. Beyonce wore this feathered Givenchy MESS. I know I said Sofia was one of the worst looks (and she was), but can we all agree that Beyonce was probably THE worst of the evening? OMG. I can’t even believe what I’m seeing, that’s how bad it is. I feel like I’m hallucinating. And just think… last year, Beyonce tried to do the “show-stopping” look of the night too – remember her vinyl dress which was so tight, she couldn’t even move? Think about that timeline too… Beyonce was “pregnant” at last year’s Met Gala. And now, just a few months after “giving birth,” Beyonce is at the gala once again, flashing all of her bits and pieces.

Shall we really go through all of the parts of this dress which are made of hideousness? Here’s an honest question: if you took off the purple feathers, would you like this dress more? Obviously, the purple feathers are a fug bridge too far, but even without them, I would hate this look. It’s too sheer, especially from behind. The sleeves and the bodice look too lingerie-y. And the lining throughout the bodice just looks cheap and swimsuit-y, like it was added as an afterthought.

Two more things: the dress has built-in gloves. Is that what it’s called? The sleeves are gloves. Sleeve-gloves. The effect is cheap. Second thing: I really dislike Beyonce’s blonde ponytail. I feel like it’s the same hairstyle Gwyneth Paltrow did for the Oscars.

    The dress is not god but that face is exquisite. And can we PLEASE stop with the “”giving birth”" thing now – jeez!

  2. Jordan says:

    Beyonce’s hair, make-up were flawless. The dress, um, wtf!? It looks trashy and like it was specifically worn to show her a$$. The front reminds me of Mothman and the feathers…no, just no.

  3. Bird says:

    Oh my, that is so disgustingly awful. Go home to your baby, you narcissistic freak.

    • polk8dot says:

      This dress was either made for someone else, or Bey put on some weight since the fitting. The fabric bunching up all over the place is really disconcerting. Also, you make sure you have all this ‘glue gun project explosion’ on the front, to cover your crotch, but you leave the sides and back sheer, so your butt and thighs are clearly on display? I’m sorry but this is not a stage in some seedy, cigarette smoke filled bar where this might be concidered sexy. Here it looks tacky, classless and cheap. Plus her thighs are MASSIVE! Cover them up, woman, they are not sexy at all. They look scary.
      I wonder if she is EVER going to learn some class? I always hoped that it was her mother’s influence, with all those ‘House of Dereon’ designs she was constantly squeezing herself in. I thought she did that to help get mom’s business off the ground. But she clearly has no taste, on her own. You decide to wear one of the most elegant designers out there, and this is you dress choice from all his creations? Holly mother!
      Bey – looking like a sausage is not sexy! Not being able to walk up the stairs is just plain stupid. Not being able to bend, breathe or sit down are sacrifices you may make for fashion, but make sure they are worth it. This dress clearly is not! Absolutely HORRIBLE.

  4. Jade says:

    So so so ghetto. I don’t know who was the biggest HBIC, her or Marc Jacobs.

    • JustcallmeMary says:

      “ghetto”? why? Because shes black? Beyonce was raised upper middleclass. Shes probably never been to a “ghetto”.

      If you mean tacky then say so. Dont disguise your Ted Nuggent/Phil Mushnick mindset behind that shady fashion critique. And also realise that ghetto is not a synonym for tacky or ugly.

      • Marjalane says:

        Really? Are you that small that you have to go looking for racism?! That was just a knee jerk reaction to a perfectly normal word! I’m SO tired of over the top PC.

      • TheOriginalVictoria says:

        She was raised upper middle class? Lies her parents told her.

        Beyonce knows exactly what ghetto is. Just watch any of her ghetto ass videos which reference Houston’s Third Ward. Someone from Houston raised upper middle class would be much more intelligent than this try hard.

        And remember….

        If you’re status ain’t hood, she ain’t checking for ya, better be street if you’re looking at her…”

        Her address may have been a step up from the hood but her entire family is GHET to the OOO. Her mentality represents SOME of the attitudes reflected in the hood.

        But furthermore, just because someone is raised upper middle class doesn’t make them the sh-t just like being from the ghetto doesn’t mean you’re the stereotype that Clown portrays: uneducated, dumb, full of sh-t, etc.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Go Victoria!
        I agree w/ Marjalane. I wouldn’t have used the word “ghetto” to describe her dress but as a chick from Charlestown, MA I use the word “ghetto”–usually to describe white people, high on heroin or Oxycontin, having domestic disputes in the local Foodmaster, train station, 99 restaurant…And in my case I’m describing the PEOPLE not the dress..anyway, has nothing to do with race, honey.

      • some bitch says:

        I think “ghetto” in this situation refers to something being cheap, of poor quality or tacky.

        Which that dress most certainly is.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Right? If anything the word “ghetto” could be considered classist but racist? Not seeing it. Actually I think it’s kind of racist to automatically assume the term “ghetto” is tied the fact that Beyonce is African American…

      • LAK says:

        She was raised upper middle class…LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

        You are seriously saying Beyonce is posh???!!! i have never heard a funnier statement in my life.

        Iman is Upper middle Class. Not our Beyonce. And no amount of hanging out with Goopy who was raised upper Middle class, will change that.

      • Francesca says:

        You must be kidding me… you really believe she was raised upper middle class and doesn’t know what ‘ghetto’ means? Why does she speak with a so-called ‘ghetto’ intonation?

    • Annaloo says:

      I’m black, and I second Jade’s comment. That dress is absolutely ghetto.

      • Mike says:

        Well I’m black and I agree with JustcallmeMary. If this was Katy Perry or Lady Gaga then the word ghetto wouldn’t have been used.

      • Hipocrisy says:

        I am black and it’s ghetto(fab) to me.

        I am pretty sure if it was Gaga or Kathy Perry, the word ‘(white) trailer trash’ would have been used instead.

        For me they are all the same and ring the same values : trash, cheap, tacky, tasteless, basic street culture related as opposed to class, sobriety, good taste,…

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I don’t get it..are there only black people that live in ghettos where some of y’all are from?

      • Hipocrisy says:

        Personally I am a black european and in my country the majority of my generation were children from ambassadors or international officials or doctors or engeeners because the condition for our parents to come was either be an ambassadors, either entering and finishing college with a BA at the very least, usually in law, sciences or engeenering.

        So usually the perceoption was that we were mostly based in the posh international area and going yo international or posh schools.

        I know that ther are not just black people living in the ghetto, just like you also find some white folks in brasilian favellas, just like not only blacks live in the french ‘cités…just like not only poor white people live in trailer trash parks.

        It’s just a generalization and perception describing those fourth world parts in each western countries with a specific name attached to a specific group whose perception wise are more representative in those fourth world part, not to mention the fact that they participate in the popularization of those words when they create terms like ‘ghetto fab’, popularizing songs where they glamourize ways to talk, to dress, to live the ghetto way helping the perception to live on…

      • Janet says:

        @Hipcrisy: I’m also black and that mess is ghetto but it sure as hell ain’t fab.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      JESUS, TAKE THE WEAVE!

  5. Bubulle says:

    I don’t really like it except for the bottom but at least it’s kinda spectacular. Also she’s too curvacious for this kind of dress, it would have looked better on a model.

  6. Hanna says:

    Oh God..
    And second: That bitch was never pregnant. smh

  7. Sisi says:

    the layer underneath the dress is too light for Bey’s complexion to look nude.

    Also, I cannot believe this … thing is considered couture

  8. lisa says:

    Her hair and make up is really beautiful. the dress is terrible. I’m kind of over the constant need to add BLUE to everything or sort of blue in this case.

    Don’t like her butt sticking out.. I think this should be a classy event. This is not a classy dress.

  9. carrie says:

    i dislike the violet “feathers” and the long train but i like the dress in general
    in clear,the real trouble is Beyoncé’s body :she’s not enough thin and tall for this sort of dress even if she looks good in the first pic(but without the train and the violet feathers)

  10. patata says:

    at least this year’s dress allows her to walk and go up stairs solo, that being said, it’s hideous

  11. lucy2 says:

    That is horrible. Really, really horrible. And unflattering. And tacky.
    I kind of like her with the simpler hair and makeup though, she has such a pretty face, it shows it off more.

  12. Mia says:

    When did Beyonce stopped being awesome and started being a try hard bitch?

    • Hipocrisy says:

      She was always a try hard but she was talented, imaginative and had a great lengthy honeymoon with the public based on a clean image.

      That image was destroyed with the baby stunt, with the perception of Beyonce being more media whore that she ever been and now all that was tolerated is gone.

  13. dorothy says:

    Totally inappropriate for such a classic event. Trying too hard to make it about her. This is a case where less would be more.

    • Tapioca says:

      Oh no you di’nt! I can’t believe you just accused humble, shy and retiring Beyonce of trying to make an event all about her.

      Take it back!

      Next you’ll try and suggest that she picked a dress specifically designed to draw your eye to her crotch…

  14. tru tru says:

    She looks very pretty, I like it…and I also love the dramatic effect at the bottom when she walks.

    she received rave reviews where it mattered
    (snickers)

  15. hstl1 says:

    Sorry Sweetie, see Gisele for how Givenchy is done!

  16. Liv says:

    Ugh! Just ugh! Plus what’s the point of wearing spanx when it’s so obviously done??

  17. Asli says:

    I feel like she was trying to pull a Halle B. when she won her Oscar. Big fail, Bey. That’s so, so, so not classy. It’s a tie between her, Sofia and Nina for worst look.

  18. Monkey Jim says:

    Those pics of her ‘natural birth’ ass walking up the stairs… Gurl, no, no and thrice NO!

    Shudder.

  19. AudreyS says:

    I HATE HATE HATE that light bodysuit underneath. It should have been a shade darker to be “invisible”. Instead, it looks CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP.

  20. HoustonGrl says:

    Whatever Ostrich sacrificed its life for this thing deserves it back.

  21. Dawn says:

    Hate the dress. Her hair and makeup are fine however and her ass looks real. That’s all I got.

  22. Green_Eyes says:

    Don’t think the flashy Vegas Showgirls would even wear that on stage! It’s a MESS! The face is flawless as is the hair…but the hair is a bit too GOOP…did they share ideas for hairdos?? Beyonce once made her flair seem effortless, now her efforts no longer have flair…

    Feel sorry for the bird who donated his feathers for that mess! To think it’s bald and she covered the ground w/ them….lol

  23. SirSnarksalot says:

    That’s some ugly ass ice capades shit right there! And someone needs to tell her that no matter how much skin bleaching, hair straightening and lightening she does, she will never be a white girl. Too much time spent with Gwyneth leads to bad things. She needs to own how beautiful she is au natural (thinking of that beach vaca candid with loose curls and a big smile). Also spanx should never be seen. Never.

  24. francesca says:

    Girl has lost her mind.

  25. Ainsley says:

    The flesh-colored shaper underneath the dress is so noticeable and ugly. The whole thing looks uncomfortable. She should know better than to pick a dress that makes her look wide like that.

  26. Dee Cee says:

    Really sad for her.. so sad.. keeping up with her many lies and secrets must be appalling..

  27. Chatcat says:

    This woman embarasses herself on a daily basis now…if it’s not her spewing lie after lie about the baby then it’s this kind of mess! Good God she makes GOOP look normal.

  28. kc says:

    Holy hideousness batman! Looks like a House of Dereon

  29. QQ says:

    OMG *Pause Mothafuckas* ARE THOSE BUILT IN GLOVES OR AM I GOING CRAZY?

  30. bored says:

    It’s not very flattering to her figure… and yeah it’s just too much of a lot of bad things.

  31. Me says:

    She does exactly look like she didnt give birth a few months ago. Why is there this idea that women morph into hideously disfigured creatures after having babies? I gave birth 7 months ago and I dont “look” like I gave birth. I just dont get the criticism people are giving her.

  32. Zelda says:

    So there’s a Burlesque Muppet, now?

  33. LMB says:

    This just proves that a lot of money cannot buy you class or good taste.

  34. Chowder says:

    She is always trying too hard. Horrible look.

  35. lil ole me says:

    The gloves are odd looking. Can’t wear spanx leggings under that dress! Wow- she doesn’t even look like she recently had a baby! Very confident

  36. original almond says:

    The dress makes her look like she’s covered in scabs. Cheap and diseased-looking, this is, indeed, a MESS.

  37. Asli says:

    Okay, I just read the piece she did for Essence Magazine. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! She’s getting an award for that piece of crap? Ugh. I can’t believe it. She doesn’t even use phrases and words right! It’s ridiculous.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Hey Asli! :)
      Do you have a link? What award is she getting?

      • Asli says:

        Hellooooooooooooo! :D

        For some strange reason this computer can’t link stuff but just google ‘Essence magazine eat play love’ – It’s the first link that comes up. She’s winning the NYABJ – New York Association for Black Journalists award. I think they’re being bias because that was a piece of crap that every 7th grader can easily top. She’s 30! How the hell is her phrase-comprehension and sentence construction so bad?!! Ugh. I’m really insulted because I’m studying to be a journalist/writer/editor and no way in hell she would have won that award if she wasn’t ‘Beyonce’.

  38. RN says:

    What hairy animal landed on the head of her “feather fluffing” assistant” and died?

    Next year maybe she’ll just wear some pasties and glue some diamonds over her labia and call it good.

  39. ahoyhoy says:

    UGH! All that heavy, tacky, sparkle trim–all over the gloves too!

    I would have given Heidi Klum anything to walk up to B in that catastrophe and say, “I’m sorry, you’re aught.” Because it looks worse than most of the ticky-tacky trim clothes that Klum sends contestants home for on a regular basis.

    B can’t possibly realize how terrible her too-light spanx look. She can’t know, because her face is showing nothing but ‘dead sexy’. It reminds me of when Tara Reid’s whole franken-boob fell out on the red carpet, and you could tell Tara confused all the camera flashes for ‘looking good’. It was sad.

  40. Noel says:

    Beyonce is like Michael Jackson to me. I liked them both better when they were black.

  41. Cait says:

    This honestly looks like one of Tina Knowles’ hideous creations, not a designer gown. Sooo bad.

  42. Aqua says:

    Wow! I’ve never read so many violent reactions to a dress.I do have to say I agree with you!The purple part of the dress looks like it could be used to create a new muppet character.

  43. beclove says:

    I am no fashionista but that dress is ugly as HELL. Go buy a blue diamond encrusted mirror woman! GAH!

  44. Agnes says:

    awfulness of a dress. beyonce is so stunning, she could do SO much better.

  45. jc126 says:

    I don’t hate it as much as you guys do; I don’t like it at all, but I am not violently opposed to it lol.
    Still don’t believe she gave birth.

  46. myrealitie says:

    This woman disgusts me like no other. She truly believes that she is a kind of royalty. Everything she does is about self aggrandizement, it’s very sad.

  47. ahoyhoy says:

    I should add to my above critique–I HATE that ‘hands hiding saddlebags’ pose. Who does she think she’s fooling? She’s so stiff and posed, just to disguise the tiny hip pooch every adult woman has.

  48. bea says:

    The crazy part is – she thinks she looks fab and has great taste!

    Frankly, I would take one look at the stylist with the dreadlock-Dorothy-Hamill-haircut and say “I’m not wearing anything you suggest.”

  49. Rory says:

    AKKKKKKK ! :P Just an attention-getter is all. It shows way too much, too.

  50. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    I’m probably the only one here who LOVES the gradient black to purple feathers. Just wish they were attached to a simple black dress without all that embroidery, lace, bodice and seethrough bullsh*t.

  51. cutlery says:

    I love how your title didn’t give a different option lol no one can possibly think this ‘bird suffering from alopecia’ is a good look!!

  52. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    The dress could have been fantastic had it not had those horrible sheer sections. And to have to wear basically a onesie beneath it to hide all of your bits from showing should have been a clear indicator to not only anyone wearing it, but to the idiot designer, that is doesn’t work.

    I also don’t think Beyonce’s make up or hair work with this outfit.

  53. Lilian says:

    I don’t know. Can I say this? She looks so white…

  54. The Original Denise says:

    Beyonce is capable of better; this is awful, just awful.

  55. Jayna says:

    She is breathtaking from the waist up.

  56. spinner says:

    Gives a whole new meaning to trashy.

    ACK!!!!!

  57. lower-case deb says:

    this is givenchy? i thought it’s marchesa. dear lord. what is the [fashion] world like?!

  58. somali princess says:

    Most beautiful women in the “world”come equipped with the body. Not in her case which proves she paid for the title. Send this overstuffed sausage beach-whale back to the sea. (Facially nice, body bah!)

  59. Daisy says:

    i’m sorry but beyonce was the absolute worst with her off colored spanx, mermaid sillouette that she’s done a thousand times & butt cleavage in the back. The dress could’ve been spectacular if properly accessorized or on someone else.

  60. mel says:

    Is it really any surprise she looks tacky…I mean…thats her overall stage look right?

  61. mary simon says:

    The crowning glory of this mess is the exposed booty. Classy.

  62. Hope says:

    It wouldn’t be so bad if:
    1. Her hair was in a proper chignon. That ponytail does not work with this dress.
    2. She went with darker eye makeup and a dark nude lip. This is a vampy, goth dress. Her hair and makeup are done for LA on a sunday afternoon, not for the met, and not for this dress.
    3. The leotard actually matched her skin tone. the fact that its so many shades off makes me wonder about the way Bey sees herself.
    4. Her hair was darker. This is not a blond’s dress, especially not a bottle blond’s.

    You know who could rock the hell out of this dress? Dita. I know she has some haters on here, but she could and would work this gown all night long.

  63. Mingy says:

    awful, just awful..even jayz couldnt stand the dress lol thats why he didnt go..and that pose, every time, its that same stiff, stupid pose.

  64. lover says:

    omg this bitch is too fat fpr that dress, and stop with that stupid pose..

  65. Runs with Scissors says:

    Imagine the self delusion it would take to get out of the limo and proudly walk a red carpet looking like this.

  66. madpoe says:

    oh thanks for the laughs!
    Having a rough day!

  67. jover says:

    Great comment noel and everyone; Asli, we all know bouncy has the mind of a barbie doll, probably money,etc. was exchanged just like her People cover, One of the muppets could’ve written a better piece,
    More importantly, how does one go through life believing you are the only person that matters – I can’t even relate to her corrupt world of narcissism and self-delusion. I may be going out on a limb, but you could argue that she is a morally revolting excuse for a human being at this point.

  68. littlestar says:

    Like really people. This is the Met Gala. Obviously people are going to wear weird outrageous outfits. Because that is what you do at this event! It’s not the Oscars! I’d rather see dresses like this than boring one’s like Lea Michele’s.

  69. e.non says:

    was this the same event where last year she couldn’t even negotiate the stairs because her dress was too tight.

    bootylicious does love showiing that ass… how friggin tacky.

  70. celine says:

    i must say i love the dress, it might not look best right here (due curvy issues) but it is a wonderful dress.

  71. Gal says:

    She needs to learn a new pose.

  72. Day says:

    Her obsession w/feathers and mermaid dresses is getting out of hand. Like, we get it, you have a curvy figure. No need to wear these ridiculous dresses to show it off. Her child bearing hips are unflattering. Change up once in a while. She is so predictable and boring. This is why people are getting sick of her.

  73. CHLOEW says:

    I love listening to her in interviews, she tries to sound so intellectual….and she’s just a clodpate

    i’m so embarrassed for her – did she even get past the 7th grade?

  74. Mara says:

    Beyonce is trying to hard to look apart but this dress is so ugly and so long and maybe cost a lot of money but it look so cheap.

  75. Wash off the hate! says:

    It’s the MET GALA…people wear over the top gowns all the time! Wether y’all want to believe it or not, there was a baby in them hips! Why is okay for for Megan Fox not to talk about her pregnancy but when Beyonce didn’t she was hiding something. Then when she did talk about it, it was all fake. I’m offically pulling the race card and slapping it down on the table. The black gossip sites have let it go but everytime I come to this site (which I USED TO really like) they are still using “pregnancy” or “gave birth.” You should change the name from Celebitchy to just bitchy.

  76. Anne Carol says:

    That seems a fantasy. She might largest carnival parade in the world, from Brazil. Dressed as a black swan (or is white now?)

    Sorry Beyonce fans. For me it is, was and always will be tacky and classless. It is a matter of style. I think his spectacular body but her face, traces of coarse, almost ugly. I see in North America, many black really beautiful face. Is not the case Beyonce.

  77. P.M. says:

    It’s actually worse than pictured. In other photos, besides the obvious body shaper, her thong is very visible. When I found out it was Givenchy I was stunned.

  78. G says:

    My problem with this is that it isn’t “fashion” at all. It’s a costume and it belongs on stage not at a social event.

    She looks like someone threw glitter mud at her.

  79. Reece says:

    I’ve been staring at this a long time trying to gather my thoughts.
    1. Weave needed to be less and in a bun.
    2. I’m thinking who/mever designed this was going for “bird”, in that way the gloves work. Full gloves. Wings. Feathers…kinda works. The purple KILLS it! What bird are you emulating designer person?
    3. I don’t like the lipstick color.
    4. Beyonce from “Crazy in Love” could pull this off. Beyonce of today can/did not! Your body needs to be TIGHT to pull this off. imo. The bodice kills it. A full lining underneath would kill the look too. Where would you begin and end it? Unless you’re gonna line the gloves too. Plus it looks like she’s got spanx on underneath it. (I’ve staring a long time lol)The dress is covered in all the right places where it would not be graphic if there was no bodice. But you need to be tight to wear this and she no longer has the body for it. That’s the only way I think this would work.

    Ultimately, I think this dress is dated. This look has been done before many times over.

  80. Jo says:

    Is it Beyonce’s goal to only wear outfits to the Met Gala if they require the help of many handlers and make her look like a teetering wreck? Remember her stupid mermaid dress last year? Also, are her semi-gloved hands glued to the side of her thighs or something? What’s with the constantly awkward pose? Or maybe she’s self-conscious because her ass crack is on display for the entire media gallery. This woman has the WORST fashion sense. Gwyneth should give her more tips.

  81. lower-case deb says:

    that dress wrangler in the first picture. what is his hair like?! omg.

  82. Michelle says:

    I hated the dress, as for her being pregnant last year. Blue was born in February, right (or was it January?), either way if Beyonce was pregnant yet it would be newly so, might not have even known it. And yes I believe she had that baby, I had such a strange pregnancy (including a shrinking pregnancy), I don’t feel like I can judge anyone else.

  83. intorealfashion says:

    If the bodysuit under it was darker, it would look nice. I’d rather see this than the boring stuff many of the women wore. What most of you don’t realize about the Met Ball is that the fashion is “supposed” to be costume or theme oriented, not run of the mill.

  84. Bella says:

    guess that “most beautiful women ” thing went to her head.Is the baby BLUE-JAY-Z HIDING UNDER HER?YUK,NO TASTE.
    She said she wants more” blue-jays.”Can she hide two in a smelly back-pack?

  85. Amanda G says:

    WOW! And I thought Kirsten Dunst was the worst! Although, is this Beyonce disaster really a surprise? She has always had bad style.

  86. Shelly says:

    Ok, I take that back. This dress is even worse than Gwyneth’s. WTF was she thinking?

  87. bagladey says:

    No good. Gimmicky crap. No fashion there.

  88. anonymoose says:

    My favorite sport is when self-obsessed celebs show off their ugliness like this.

    How can the self-obsessed be equally as unaware of how atrocious they look? SO funny.

    They take opportunities like this to let it all hang out, without even realizing they are revealing their horrible taste, overwhelming neediness, and their insecurities.

    Whatevs. This red carpet has a What Not To Wear theme.

    This look? Like she made a “dress” with a glue gun and carnival end-of-day trashpile. Then someone put a Gwyneth Paltrow wig on her and sent her out to compete in the amateur beauty pageant.

  89. the original bellaluna says:

    It looks like someone attached 4 feet of feathers to one of her or J-Ho’s “performance outfits” and said “Here’s your dress!”

    Lazy AND FUG.

  90. Karma says:

    All together now. Bey Bey has jumped the Shark.

    I believe she was going for a Royal appearance since that IS the way she lves her life now, but instead it looks like a tacky purple costume fit for a GHETTO PRINCESS.

  92. reg says:

    This is Ghetto Cinderella meets large purple feather duster, it must have been Gwynnie who told her to expose those thunder thighs, surely this is the worst dress in history of the Met Gala

  93. Irina says:

    look at her face and skin color a year ago and now! she’s so obviously transforming herself into Caucasian woman!

  94. Meanchick says:

    My eyes have filed assault charges against this dress!
    This is swan dress territory. Why didn’t she just wear a freakin’ sequined bathing suit and just be done with it? Are the sleeves attached with velcro? FUG-A-LEE!

  95. Stacia says:

    Fug! A bit tacky and too much azz showing in the back.

  96. Tami says:

    The dress is fug but Beyonce is absolutely gorgeous! Stunning!

  97. juju says:

    ugly ass dress !!!!! omg this is one ugly ass dress plus her ass is coming out !!!!!!!!!

  98. Jaana says:

    Beyonce’s father was making more than 1 million a year before he quit his job to help her and the girls focus on getting a record deal. They were an upper middle class family so to call her ghetto is RACIST. #Thatisall. And when stars like Heidi Kluim model bikinis four weeks after giving birth you all sigh in amazement, but the minute a black girl, Beyonce, gives birth is a worldwide scandal on how it was fake. All you racists in here Speak ur mind! Don’t hold it back now, let it out baby! You just can’t stand her because she is beautiful, famous and richer than all of us on this site combined! This unjustifiable hate.. I see it with Blake Lively too, who is a straight up gorgeous girl.. Don’t kno what ya’ll problem is.. I’m guess fat and wrinkles combined???

      Girl bye!Matthew Knowles was not clearing a millie before the group. Everyone in Houston knows all about the Knowless-Cartels.

      No one is being racist. She is ghetto. Her attitude is ghetto as is yours. The whole, “she’s richer than everybody so we all have pitiful lives and shes just perfect” is tired. Beyonce is paid because for twenty years she duped people into believing she was this little angel who was a one woman show. And the lies around her are tumbling.

      First she grew up rich but then in the same breath they spent most of her childhood struggling. So which is it?

      I’ll wait. And the reason why Heidi gets props is because she actually CARRIED her child and worked off the weight like a normal person. And she is an underwear model so she is REQUIRED to look a certain way.

      Bey had the opportunity to sit her ass down for a year and raise her baby but she can’t sit down because she and Jay owe their masters money from their failing shenannies as of late.

      I’m black and she disgraces me as does her husband and anyone else who shares my skin color and supports her foolishness.

    • Janet says:

      Ever heard the saying “You can take the girl out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of the girl”? That’s Beyonce.

      A ton of money can’t buy an ounce of class. She looks like a Vegas stripper on that outfit. She looks trashy. And yes, she looks straight-up ghetto.

      BTW I’m black also, so don’t start with the racism accusations. This has nothing to do with race and everything to do with low-class tackiness and bad taste. It comes in all colors.

      • TheOriginalVictoria says:

        Sweetie there is a not d damn thing self hating about me. Everyone on this site knows my font is Black and proud all damn day.

        You’re the one with self hatred. You support someone who clearly has no interest in really advancing her people, is a b a c o o n with her European weanve, ad CREOLE posturing, skin lightening and all around nasty. She does not represent the kind of blackness that I grew up around.

        You just said she was raised upper middle class and now you can take the girl out of the ghetto but…please! You stans are so thrown you lie as bad as Beyonce now.

        Hry Leah…Girl.. LOL. Sometimes I feel like this crap will never ends.

  100. Marybel says:

    Are we certain that’s Givenchy? Looks more like her mother’s Whore House of Dereon line. She is so tacky.

  101. Jaana says:

    And its the MET Gala!! Not the freaking oscars!! The dresses are supposed to be wild & fun! Marc Jacobs wore a dress yet he isn’t facing these ridiculous comments

  102. F5 says:

    Wish she covered those fat thighs ._.

    • jc126 says:

      I wouldn’t call them fat, exactly, more like muscular and the type that would get fat very easily unless the person works out like a fiend. But the hormones of pregnancy and birth would fatten thighs like that up for a while.

  103. Lizzie says:

    Hideous! When are these spoiled fame whores going to dress according to their stages of life? She is a MOTHER now and looks like a slut. Guess money can’t buy everything – she has no class or grace. It is truly scary that she is going to be dressing her daughter.

  104. Lisa B. says:

    There’s nothing wrong with the dress. It’s actually beyond amazing like mostly everything Mr. Tisci designs. The problem here is the girl.

    This dress was not meant for girls with Beyonce’s body type. It was meant for the Karlie Klosses of the world. Very tall, skinny and camera-aware girls.

    What to say of the spanx? It adds such a cheap ghetto look to something that could’ve been amazing on the right person.

    Beyonce should stop trying to fit in as some kind of avant-garde high fashion icon. She’s not that. And will never be. She’s making a fool of herself.

    Time for her to hire people who’ll find the appropriate dresses for her size and style.

  105. JRenee says:

    not a fan of the dress…

  106. Uma says:

    She doesnt have a big butt! They always claimed Beyonce was bootylicious, but I always knew she wore butt pads. People see big hips and associate with having a big butt smh! She does have a nice shape tho, just not a big butt

  107. Tami says:

    I dont understand all the dislike for Beyonce she is a beautiful, rich woman what has she done to get so much hate?

  108. Stacie says:

    I think the dress proves she was pregnant or at least has lost a few lately. You know how great you feel after you lose some weight and you go shopping and buy something to show off your new shape? Usually it’s something that you probably shouldn’t wear but you just feel so great that, dammit, you are going to wear it anyway. That’s this dress! She’s dropped a few and feels great and is unable to self-edit properly. That’s when your girlfriends step in and try to help, which opens a whole new discussion as to the people around her…

  109. bubbles says:

    somewhere out there a bunch of Gypsies are crying out loud because they have been robbed.

  110. crtb says:

    Say something nice: She didn’t wear blue.

  111. Dee Cee says:

    She’s saving these photos to prove she doesn’t want Blue Ivy to grow up focusing on “the aesthetic”

  112. skeptical says:

    I think I found the websites of that Aisha person Asli mentioned on an older Bey thread.
    Some things are familiar, like the picture comparisons on http://www.judiciaryreport.com/beyonce_steals_again_but_this_time_from_sam_cooke_en_vogue_and_european_artist.htm

    and
    http://www.judiciaryreport.com/beyonce_keeps_stealing_from_the_braxton_family.htm

    Aisha makes a lot of claims on her site, but she’s also listing numbers (patent numbers?) near her claims, and she has a lot of links, so maybe someone more learned than me might be curious enough to take a gander?

    http://www.aishamusic.com/lawsuit-beyonce-infringements.htm

    bonus?: this one has a moving pic of jay-z hitting a woman. i’d heard that he hit a woman but I’d never seen the pics.

  113. Kel says:

    What a shame that she feels she has to wear something like this and all the other crazy things she’s been photographed in since giving birth. I think the baby fat is making her insecure and she’s lost the little fashion sense she had.

    • kibbles says:

      Beyonce has never had fashion sense, lol. Money can’t buy class or a sense of style for a lot of celebrities and Beyonce is one of them. Her dress last year looked cheap too. Anyway, this is what she wants – to have everyone talking about her even if it is because the dress is hideous. Her dress has gotten the most comments of all the dresses at this event. That was probably the goal she had in mind when deciding on this monstrosity.

  114. blasted1 says:

    She’s been going to the Jennifer Lopez School of Style, apparently. She hasn’t looked this ridiculous since she wore that black and gold saloon gal dress.

  115. lola lola says:

    SHe looks ridiculously uncomfortable!

  116. hairball says:

    I am totally EMBARRASSED for her.

  117. galaxygirl says:

    MERCY, Beyonced out, no more!

  118. C says:

    she’s slightly bigger structured (bones) i guess because she’s proportionately curvy and has nice curves

    but the dress really does not do good to her i guess it looks passable because she has a gorgeous face

  119. Eric says:

    Ugly as can be
    Believe me, that article she “wrote” for essence is heavily edited, she can’t string a group of words together, there is obviously no merit in giving her a writing award, she bought that award for $200

  120. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    @jAnet…your font’s name is close to the person I was commenting on. That was not meant for you. I got it mixed up. Sorry.

  121. Skeletor says:

    I’m going to have to defend the Givenchy dress a little bit, and here’s why.

    The sheer dress on top with the jewels is clearly going for a skeletal theme. You can see the rib cage on Bey’s chest and the hip bones on her thighs. It’s the same idea on her back, too, with the rib cage and pelvis. On the arms she has also a type of “bone structure”, which extends to her hands and fingers (hence the gloves). The dress actually reminds me a lot of the Alien movies.

    However the part where Beyoncé is going completely off the rails if the bodice with the lace print, which I dont think was originally meant to be there. It doesn’t make any sense. She also added extra lace directly on her arms and thigs, underneath the skeleton dress. This results in many different shades of black, which is enough to create a very messy overall look.

    So this is my point with the dress: Beyoncé and her team added the lace-theme on their own. It’s pretty obvious that the lace does nothing for the original theme of the dress, so I’m guessing there’s supposed to be something COMPLETELY different worn underneath the sheer dress. Something very solid in colour would be my guess.

    Considering this black skeletal theme, the feathers kind of make sense and are kind of cool. However Beyoncé, with her nonexisting taste, decided to bring the an otherwise pretty dress down to her level.

    Man, I hope I’m right on this one, because otherwise Givenchy is putting out some pretty awful stuff.

  122. Bissly says:

    Wow!Spectacularly awful.This dress alone should convince anyone she was pregnant.Look at those hips and her thighs.I think she hasn’t totally gotten her stomach back that’s why she put d obviously unflattering inner lining to shape things up a little and cover it up.
    That dress is totally meant to be see through.Believe me if Beyonce thought she had the body to pull it off the nude look she would totally have gone sheer.She is Vain dat way.

  123. reg says:

    You can clearly see this dress is not made for someone large like Bownce, she looks the same as she did before her “pregnancy”

  124. Hakura says:

    I like the idea of the dress, but ick.Too much going on…MESH/SKIN/SHINY/RHINESTONES/*FEATHERS*!

    All it does is say “LOOK AT ME! Look how amazing my body is this soon after having a baby!, which I *totally* did have, btw.”

    It may just be the lighting/flashes but… Does it look like her skin is getting significantly lighter?

  125. Angee says:

    She looks like she’s packed in like a sausage.

  126. mememe says:

    The dress is great in theory. The “Bootylicious” took it too far.

  127. Martin says:

    I caanot agree with most of these comments. I don’t really follow Beyonce and just saw her wearing this dress in the paper. I think it’s fabulous! so sexy and really shows off her figure. It’s clearly making a statement, but I’m almost certain that would have been the idea at an event like this. And you wouldn’t wear it to go to Church….but I think she looks great in it.
