Beyonce's Heavy Metal Night at the BET Awards

No, Beyonce hasn’t turned into a rocker, but she did go for metallic in a big (and weighty) way at last night’s BET Awards in Los Angeles. She hit the red carpet in a stunning one of a kind crystal gown from Dolce & Gabbana, topped with a metal corset belt that an insider tells PEOPLE “weighs a million pounds!” She then changed into full C3P0 robot mode for a performance of her hit song “Get Me Bodied” — eventually, the robot shell came off to reveal a metal bra-let and mirrored gold leggings that seemed to be a little bit easier for booty-shaking. And Beyonce added a little bit more metal by the end of the night. The singer won two trophies for best R&B Female and Video of the Year, for her single, “Irreplaceable”.

If you didnt see the performance then you shouldnt comment on it, cuz it wasnt an outfit per-se it was a prop that opened up and she came came out of.

Altough it’s not the best thing she did, i like it, because she did something different, not something she did before. She knew some people wouldn’t like it and would judge her, but she did it anyway and that’s something to admire.

Personally, I think both outfits need to be thrown away.

Who wrapped Beyonce in aluminiun foil??? Horrible! Just because some designer made it doesn’t always mean it’s something you should wear.

Chrissie, what are you talking about? No one is hating on her because she’s “bee” and she’s making money. Get over it, she just looks horrible in that dress. I like her music (some of it) but she gets annoying really fast and her fashion choices are not as great as they could be. She needs to stop letting her mom dress her and get a stylist.

we arent enemies of success but she copied EVERYTHING from kylies performance 3 years ago. if you are gonna be successful, do it with your OWN ideas.

I love her gown! Beyonce is always unique. She has the money…but sometimes less is best.
