We're starting to see a pattern! Beyoncé stunned in a white sheer dress as one of her 2016 VMA ensembles — proving that her wedding dress outfit choices aren't just a one-time thing (Grammys, we're looking at you).
While there were a lot of wild and crazy outfits gracing the red carpet at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards this year, the 34-year-old singer showed her fashion-forward ways with a total of four looks for the show — with two being absolute show-stoppers. Upon arrival, Beyoncé and daughter Blue Ivy paraded around in bedazzled Francesco Scognamiglio numbers, according to Daily Mail both wearing dresses that complimented each other. Queen Bey was rocking a mint-bejeweled gown with a feathered neckline that resembled angel wings (you know, just because), and her 4-year-old princess rocked a gold tutu and jeweled head band — complete with golden high tops. Flower girls are jealous all around the world from the cuteness that is Blue Ivy, you can count on that.
On to the main event: even though we wouldn't say that Mrs. Carter was looking subdued in outfits two and three (a sequined gold jumpsuit and several costumes while performing her hit singles "Don't Hurt Yourself" and "Sorry"), we will say that number four was the one that truly caught our eye. The sheer Elie Saab number left little to the imagination, which included a nude bodysuit, rouged cap long sleeves, a plunging ruffled neckline, and lace detail throughout. Wearing her hair back in a half-up, half-down style with dazzling statement earrings, the pop star was truly channeling bridal vibes.
After the award show performance and award acceptances (seven thank-you speeches are a LOT of work, let's be serious), she and her hubs retreated to an after party with the crew: a noteworthy squad including P Diddy, Kanye and Kim, Cassie, and Alicia Keys. And what was B wearing, might you ask? None other than outfit #4, her white wedding-dress stunner — showing us that wedding gowns to award shows (and afterparties) are always on trend.
See below for the photos of her gorg dresses — and, of course, the squad.
