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”.

Beyonce’s “red carpet” outfit looks overdone especially with the BIG belt.She already has
too many glitz on her dress she doesn’t need a
belt to overdo it. Also, her robot outfit looks
too shiny. I think she should get rid of
metallics in her wardrobe.Too much sparkle
blinds the eye.

Beyonce keeping it simple is the way to go!

She didn’t wear the robo-suit during the whole performance. She just came out in it and then she revealed her outfit. Her performance stood out from the others that night and I think that’s what she wanted. And if your over Beyonce, why click on posts about her and comment? If I didn’t like a particular celeb then I would stay far far away!

Beyonce’s red carpet dress is sorta pretty, but she’s been over doing it on the metallics, it seems that’s all she wears. She’s still pulling clothes out of her “Dreamgirls” closet. Since the dress already has a lot going on, she didn’t really need that belt, that’s really over doing it. As for the robot performance outfit, I’ll give her pass, because it was for a performance, but she’s still over doing it there too. She has a great voice, but she sort of over does it with the dramatic and theatrical fashion.

she wasnt supposed to look sexy; she was supposed to look like a robot.

I love this girl but she does need to change it up a little. I’m sick of the glitter. She is beautiful and talented, she just needs to tone it down.

So you ladies on hate on my girl just as much as the ladies on sister2sister? Wow, I thought mostly black women hated on her like mostly white women hate on Angelina. lol.

copy cat.

I think the robot thing is stupid, but it is for a performance so its not that big of a deal. But as for the red carpet dress- that is awful. Tacky and gaudy as usual.
