Beyonce's Bold Fashion Choice: "She Looked Fantastic"

Beyonce Knowles is known for her glamorous wardrobe choice, tending to glittering gowns, curve-hugging minis and elegant creations from Armani for her many red carpet events. Which is why we did a double take when the singer turned up at the MTV Europe Awards in not one, but two dresses from notoriously edgy British designer Gareth Pugh. Beyonce’s stylist Ty Hunter tells PEOPLE, “Gareth Pugh’s work is explosive and she had to wear it. She thinks he is an amazing talent.” The young Brit is a master of dark, almost-goth looks with incredible architectural details. Beyonce’s performance dress, which is made of elastic bands and rows and rows of YKK zippers, first appeared on the designer’s Fall 2008 runway with matching leggings that Knowles wisely skipped. Pugh himself tells PEOPLE, “I’m delighted she wore my dresses, she looked fantastic.” We agree, and we love that Beyonce is supporting up-and-coming young designers while trying out cool, new looks. That metallic robot glove, we’re a little less sure about. Tell us: What do you think of Beyonce’s fashion choice? – reporting by Monique Jessen

Beyonce does not need to be wearing sci fi outfits it makes look hideous… Just do what you do best beyonce lose the sci fi look fast!!

I think the dress was good for the run way only. The display of what the designer can do. I wish Beyonce would stop trying to change her image too she’s naturally beautiful, but she seems to be pulling for attention and too desperate to be an icon…… No matter how beautiful you are everybody can’t be an icon and it’s never forced.

Beyonce is very talented, I dont get the fashion choice though- especially for a ballad like “If I Were a Boy” maybe for another song…?

Might I add something off topic:

Jennifer Aniston’s latest comments about Angelina Jolie are just selfish.

Cant Jen just see that Brad & Angelina obviously met for a reason!? Look at the beautiful loving family they now have together!! Jen should be content with her own life right now and happy that she still isnt married to a man who wasn’t in love with her anymore! Jen is acting childish and selfish in this vogue interview and the cover looks like a trashy star magazine quote! SHAME ON YOU JEN! YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS VERY “UNCOOL”!

I wish that Jen would just be happy for Brad’s beautiful new life and not go over the past in interviews over n over again.
Why cant Angelina talk about how she met the loving father of her six kids?

Totally lost respect for Aniston- who I have been a fan of for a while.
LOVE JOLIE- always!

She’s not wearing the dress… The dress is wearing her… It might work in all black but it looks like she’s wearing cardboard….

I love Beyonce and everything she does but OMG!! I don’t like this it’s a mix of Michael Jackson and the Tin Man…LOL

she should fire her stylist – if she thinks she is important enough to represent and motivate trend, she’s being misled and, sadly, believes the trumped up hype about her. She is the quintessential wannabe..

Yes, it´s obvious she´s trying to be edgy like rihanna. The dress does not suit her.
