Battle of the Met Gowns: Beyonce Edition

Last night, Twitter was abuzz as celebs hit the Met Gala’s red carpet and one A-lister was fashionably late; Beyonce Knowles.

2012 was a big year for Beyonce. She gave birth to luckiest child in the world, Blue Ivy, and was named People magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman in the World, so her appearance at the “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was much anticipated.

Bey showed up in a Givenchy Haute Couture gown just as the red carpet was ending. Her see-through dress was covered in intricate beading and fanned out at the bottom with black and purple feathers.

Yet Beyonce is no newcomer to the Met Gala. Last year she came with her husband, Jay-Z, wearing a skin-tight Emilio Pucci gown that was notoriously so tight she had to have assistance walking up the stairs.

Before those two avant-garde looks, Beyonce attended her first Met Gala in 2008 wearing a strapless Armani Prive blush-colored gown.

Which was her best look? The daring or the demure? Vote below!
