She was stuck in traffic—but her Gucci look was worth the wait.
It’s safe to say Beyoncé was one of the most-anticipated guests—okay, the most-anticipated guest—at the Grammy Awards this evening. The Renaissance singer nabbed a whopping nine nominations tonight, making her also the most-nominated artist this year. But when the red carpet began, there was no sign of Queen B; when the official ceremony began, still no sign of Queen B. It wasn’t until well over an hour into the show that Beyoncé and Jay-Z finally arrived. While she was reportedly stuck in traffic, she gave new meaning to the term “fashionably late.”
Her mixed metallics Gucci gown was well worth the wait. With a long silver skirt with cascading ruffles, it fell in line with the disco-ready vibe she’s been embodying during her Renaissance era. The singer went on to accept four Grammys tonight, including Best R&B Song (“Cuff It”); She now holds the most Grammy wins ever (a staggering 32 awards). After her live ceremony appearance, the singer followed up her Gucci dress with an Instagram post of her holding her new trophies. The look consisted of a sculptural, off-the-shoulder dress by Balmain with a golden, armor-like bodice underneath—not to mention a circular headpiece, which matched her new Grammys. Two bold ensembles in one night! The only thing that could have topped it off was a performance look—but you’ll just have to wait for her tour for that. If you can score tickets, that is.
