The stars were out in full force last night at the 2011 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala in New York City.
The event, which was dedicated to the memory and work of fashion icon Alexander McQueen, brought out the who’s who in fashion, music, and entertainment. Bey and Jay, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Vogue EIC Anna Wintour, Kanye West, Taylor Swift, Renée Zellweger, Paul McCartney, J-Lo, Ciara, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kerry Washington were just a few in attendance at the gala.
Although all eyes were focused on the stunning McQueen exhibit entitled “Savage Beauty,” Beyoncé’s wardrobe malfunction had all the blogs talking.
Queen Bey arrived at the event, husband and stylist in tow, looking absolutely gorgeous in a black and gold form-fitting Pucci gown that hugged her body harder than a grandma at Christmas time. The only problem? It was apparently so tight she needed help getting up the stairs.
Even though she looked stunning, the night wasn’t all-good for Beyoncé. While she struggled to get up the stairs, she was booed by some of the paparazzi because she didn’t pose as much as they’d like.
I guess you can’t please everyone.
After seeing Beyoncé struggle in the name of beauty, I got to thinking about how many other women suffer for fashion’s sake.
From shoes that are a little too small, to dresses that are so short you can’t sit down, women constantly deal with being uncomfortable (or even being in pain) just to look good.
