At her HBO Life Is But a Dream documentary screening last night, Mrs. Carter glimmered in the spotlight wearing an intricately beaded sleeveless nude gown from Elie Saab spring 2012 couture. Not only was her dress dripping in floral appliques, but its completely sheer chest panel (with strategically placed bands), also flaunted a serious amount of boobage (under, over, and side). Queen Bey posed in her trademark style with her arms akimbo, drawing further attention to her bedazzled chest and toned arms. We wonder: Was this the gown she had been planning on wearing to the Grammys pre-restriction? Her bright fuchsia smile seems to be saying yes.
