Met Gala 2013: Bow Down To Beyonce In Givenchy

Beyonce Knowles really is the queen.

On Monday, the superstar stopped traffic on the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala, thanks to her gorgeous black-and-gold Givenchy ensemble.

The 31-year-old, who is also the honorary chair for the Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition, donned matching boots and long gloves for the regal affair.

The Met Gala comes just one day after Queen B performed her sixth straight show at London’s O2 Arena. Beyonce is expected to return to England soon after tonight’s event — The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour will hit Manchester for three concerts beginning on Tuesday.
