Remember when naked dresses were on the rise and we suddenly had to collectively deal with the fact that stars like Rihanna and Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian apparently just have ridiculous bodies, and it hadn't all been a trick of shapewear and tailoring all along? Well. Those days are past on at least some level; Kim's been rocking a lot of sweats (with heels, of course) while Rih's been enjoying floufy layers of tulle lately. Beyoncé went so far as to flash paparazzi with her Spanx last month when leaving the Diamond Ball, proving that she does indeed wear shapewear.
But. BUT. Then Beyoncé pulls a move like the one she did last night, donning a custom fitted gown from Walter Mendez to attend the Tidal x Brooklyn charity concert. And sure, maybe she's wearing Spanx underneath, but there are plenty of us who will never be able to achieve that kind of hour-glass silhouette even if we wear three layers of shapewear.
Lest the "my body looks like this less than six months after giving birth to twins" thing not be enough to broadcast that Beyoncé is living her best life, she added an Alexander Wang x Judith Leiber clutch that looks like a wad of rolled hundred dollar bills (worth $5k, and not available to the rest of the world until it officially drops in November). Her custom Lorraine Schwartz earrings, eggplant-purple fur and rhinestone-covered Christian Louboutin heels were just icing on the cake. Is Beyoncé really human like the rest of us? The world may never truly know.
