Met Costume Institute Gala 2011

Jay-Z and Beyoncé

Beyoncé and Jay-Z made a grand entrance at the Costume Institute’s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 2). All eyes were on hip-hop’s royal couple as they posed for photos together, Jay in a black-and-white tux and his wife in an ornate black-and-gold Emilio Pucci fishtail gown.

The fashion and entertainment worlds collided at the star-studded event, which was dedicated to the late designer Alexander McQueen and featured a performance from Florence + the Machine.

Rihanna turned heads in a revealing black Stella McCartney creation with long red braid, Alicia Keys was the belle of the ball in a Givenchy gown, Kanye West sported a tux from Tory Burch’s new menswear line, Ciara strutted in a Prabal Gurung show stopper, Jennifer Hudson was a fairy tale princess in Vera Wang, and Jennifer Lopez and Mary J. Blige were gorgeous in Gucci.

Check below for more photos from the fashion parade including Keri Hilson, Cassie, Pharrell, Solange, Swizz Beatz, Janelle Monáe, Bruno Mars, John Legend, and more.

    What is Kanye using to keep his jacket together?

    [Reply]

    H•A•M Reply:

    @Banana, It’s a pin. It’s not that the jacket had one of its button’s torn off, it’s just that type of jacket is produced with two holes, and I guess Ye’ just wanted it closed so he pinned it together. Don’t really like the fit altogether (pants are too long, yet well fitted, peak collar shirts aren’t for black tie, no cummerbund, etc…) but who gives a fuck, when you’re rich you do whatever the fuck you want, lol.

    I loove Ciara, Bey, and RiRi’s dresses but…. I think Ciara should’ve worn her hair up, that lacy stuff on Bey’s boobs looks weird, and I don’t think Rih should’ve worn burgundy lipstick. Besides that, they all look gorgeous!!!

    Everyone looks nice I wish Rihanna had done the crly look or wear her hair up that dress is gorgeous on her . I love, love, love AK but I don’t like that dress a bit matronly. I would love to see it without the jacket her face and hair are flawless. JHUD is just lovely she looks wonderful.

  49. Alexandra

    Beyonce looks like royalty, well fitted gown and the accents are simply gorgeous. Keri and Ciara look great. Love Janelle’s suit very original and perfectly executed. Jennifer looks like she’s headed to the prom…too much material. Alecia’s all brown getup ages her 10 years and JLo’s dress is prettier without the shawl made of flowers. And the WTF was ur team thinking award goes to Rihanna, starting with the hair and that braid it’s all just a fail. the dress is ok and it looks like it fits well but that cheap wig and makeup just ruin the whole look…Rhi is usually on point but this was disappointing.

  52. Diamond Girl

    I agree with Rihanna Rocks!! She is the only one taking a risk in this dress. She’s the only one who could pull it off. ponytail and all. These simple minded kids on here don’t get it. Beyonce’s Dress was nice but if there was no embellishment on the front. that dress would be boring and something we’ve already see here in. c’mon! boring. she needs a new stylist yesterday!!! next!

    Everyone looks horrible. Usually Rihanna & CiCi sht, but I’m not feeling their looks and I think the hair should be up when wearing an evening gown to not take away from it. Bey’s dress is ugly and too tight, I’m surprised she could walk.
