Michelle Obama‘s elegant Inauguration outfit had everyone buzzing, but when Beyoncé took the stage to sing the “Star Spangled Banner” — wearing 130 carats of emeralds that could be seen from the back row in the crowd of 800,000 — she practically broke Twitter.

Queen Bey donned unbelievable 80-carat emerald earrings and a 50-carat emerald ring, both by Lorraine Schwartz. She paired the stunners with a black chiffon-and-velvet Emilio Pucci gown, plus an additional pop of color via her fluorescent tangerine mani. (And since we’re guessing you’re not ready to spring for those gems, you can nab the exact nail polish she wore, NCLA Nail Lacquer in I’m With The Band, for just $16.)

But Beyoncé wasn’t the sole diva in D.C. yesterday: Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson also showcased their killer pipes (and fit figures) in gorgeous black-tie attire.

Hudson, who sang “Let’s Stay Together” during the Obamas’ first dance at the inaugural ball, displayed her curves in a fitted black V-neck column, plus Amrapali bracelets, a Demarco ring, bombshell waves and a nude lip.

Keys also paid tribute to the President during the party, changing the lyrics to her hit “Girl on Fire” while wearing a long-sleeve sparkly red number with an open-back, a retro ‘do and her own show-stopping gems.

And Clarkson, who sang during the ceremony at the Capitol, tweeted a shot of her evening ensemble: a floral strapless ball gown that was so voluminous it took up the entire backseat of her car. Now that’s a dress! Tell us: Which singer do you think had the best Inauguration day style?
