Beyonce was stunning in a skin-tight latex gown at this year at the Met Gala, arriving without her husband Jay Z. See the photos and video of the curve-hugging dress as once again, solo or not, the superstar makes a fashion statement.
By now, we associate the power couple that is Beyonce and Jay Z with the Met Gala, that annual fashion bash at the Metropolitan Museum that celebrates the exhibition at the Costume Institute. It was two years ago that the couple, seemingly happy on the red carpet, played out a romantic mock proposal, when one of Beyonce’s rings fell to the floor and Jay Z swooped it up and pretended to propose. Those photos and video, naturally went viral.
But of course, there was also that infamous elevator video, revealing that all was not well in the household, as Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles, was seen attacking Jay Z, as Beyonce looked on. And that’s what fueled the gossip that the fight was over Jay Z’s alleged relationship with Rachel Roy.
Now just days after Beyonce surprised the world with her ‘Lemonade’ album and its searing subject matter of betrayal and infidelity that’s left social media in search of the “Becky with the good hair” of her lyrics.
This time around, arriving solo at the Met, not offering any explanation of such — not that we would have expected it from Beyonce — she instead was one of few stars not taking on the metallic look that’s quickly become mocked in memes on social media. With this year’s exhibit being Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology, many decided to take the futuristic theme to the red carpet.
Beyonce’s Givenchy gown to use a tired cliche appeared to be painted on, to say the very least. And while we’re on a tired cliche roll, we would have to add that she left nothing to the imagination, as every curve for which she’s famous, was accentuated.
US Weekly quotes sources who claim we’re not to make any inferences from Jay Z’s absence. But let’s face it, were he there, suddenly all the body language experts, self-professed and self-appointed and otherwise would be out in force.
But regardless, Beyonce walked the red carpet alone, and turned heads, as usual, even as the ‘Lemonade’ album tops the Billboard 200 upon its debut. All in keeping with the superstar who’s touring the world with her latest show, the Formation Tour.
