When it comes to celebrity fashion events, it’s hard to compete with The Oscars red carpet. However, The Big Apple comes mighty close with its annual Costume Institute Gala!

The big event, officially titled “Schiaparelli And Prada: Impossible Conversations” Costume Institute Gala, was held tonight at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the belle of the ball was none other than People magazine’s “World’s Most Beautiful Woman,” Beyonce Knowles!

The 30-year-old singer, and recent mom, was sporting blonde hair and showed off her post-pregnancy figure in a very revealing black lace Givenchy Haute Couture gown that morphed into a lengthy purple feathered train. Underneath the transparent look was a tan leotard that gave the slight illusion of nudity while covering Bey’s nether regions.

On thing the undergarment didn’t completely cover, however, was the singer’s Beyonkadonk!

Clearly Beyonce would also make the list of the World’s most bootyful women, although we know who walks away with the top prize on that list.
