Another day, another red carpet event…. Beyonce and Jay-Z made the rounds last night at the Met Gala, and wowed the crowd with their coordinated fashion ensembles.
Beyonce wore a stunning beaded black Givenchy floor-draping gown with sheer “peekaboo” panels. Adorning her hair, which was pulled back in a simple chignon, was a intricately beaded veil. Her hubby stood by her side in a color-coordinate white suit jacket, black slacks and bow tie.
As if she were not fabulous enough, Beyonce made sure that her dress stayed in place by walking alongside her very own dress adjuster! Staying flawless is serious business!
Beyonce wasn’t the only member of the Knowles clan on the exclusive guest list for the gala. Her younger sister, Solange, also attended the event, gracing the red carpet in a peach gown.
