We already know that Beyoncé can work a red carpet party dress like a boss--no QUEEN--and she just kills it like no other onstage. Case in point, her sexy, steamy, earth-shattering opening performance at the Grammy Awards last Sunday. Oh, and since she didn't get to walk the red carpet before the show--you know, sound check and all--here's a shot of the star in her sheer, peekaboo Michael Costello gown and Lorraine Schwartz bling that she donned post-performance.
You're welcome. So clearly we need to crown Queen Bey with the Glamour Style Icon of the Week and--since we're still on a Grammys high--celebrate with her most killer onstage looks.
In May of 2011, she sizzled at the Billboard Music Awards and proved who in fact runs the world in this hot, hot, hot chain-mail peekaboo onesie.haute couture, right Rita Ora?).
Finally at the VMAs that year, Mrs. Carter put those baby rumors to rest by finally revealing her little bump hidden by a sequined tuxedo jacket--after a high-energy, mic-dropping performance of "Love on Top." Aw...
And who could forget her mind-blowing Super Bowl 2013 performance (and the brief Destiny's Child reunion)? Of course, Beyoncé killed it once again in a laser-cut piece by Rubin Singer.
I feel like 2013 was really her year of top-notch concert outfits. Like this silvery fringed two-piece custom set by Ralph & Russo for her performance opening Ovation Hall in Atlantic City.
Last year, Beyoncé also somehow found the time to secretly record a visual album full of 14 songs and 17 videos--all in the midst of her Mrs. Carter tour performances. She had a bevy of designers creating custom costumes for her, including this beautifully ornate white leotard by Timothy White.
Pucci creative designer Peter Dundas created eight stunning pieces for the tour, including this sassy fringed leopard-print minidress.
Which onstage look is your favorite? And did you see Beyoncé's performance at the Grammys?!
