Queen Beyonce of the Ball

Beyonce Knowles led the fashion parade at this year's Met Gala in New York City.  Among the other A-list celebrities and fashionistas, Beyonce's dress grabbed the attention and set the fashion standard high, especially among recording artists.

This red carpet appearance marked the first for Beyonce after the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in early January 2012.  30-year-old Knowles looked sensational in a sheer sequin Givenchy Haute Couture Gown, and she wore a nude bodysuit underneath, which was also visible but flattering to her honey skin.

As with any fashion leaps on the red carpet, the gown was divided among the critics.  Some criticized it for being too obvious and revealing, while other critics assumed Beyonce wore it for the sake of being noticed.  In regards to Beyonce, we will not know whether she adored the gown or simply sought the attention, for Beyonce has never hid from the spotlight or public attention in the past.

Beyonce certainly turned all heads at this year's Met Ball and her dress certainly had high maintenance during her appearance.  The gown required a stylist to be available at Beyonce's every beck and call to primp the dress as Beyonce ascended the stairs.
