The Sexiest Dresses of All Time Beyoncé’s Freakum Dress

Beyoncé’s Freakum Dress

On the “Mrs. Carter Show” tour, Beyoncé belted out “Freakum Dress,” the anthem for all dangerously sexy dresses while power-strutting across the stage in a backless, floor-grazing, red silk chiffon-paneled gown by Alon Livne. According to the song’s lyrics, freakum dresses should be “short and backless.” While Bey’s dress didn’t seem to fit the “short” criteria, when she sauntered to the front of the stage, a gust of wind lifted up the dress’s waist-high slits, exposing more leg than a standard short dress ever could. And the dress’s attributes didn’t stop there: The fiery showstopper also featured a triangular torso cutout and built-in gold jewelry dotted with Swarovski bling.
