We knew that Beyoncé would slay in whatever she wore to the Grammys, and not surprisingly, all eyes were on her when she stepped out to announce the Record of the Year winner. The singer commanded everyone's attention in a sheer white Inbal Dror gown with thigh-high slits that's actually a wedding dress! We fell in love with the dramatic creation from Inbal Dror's Fall 2016 bridal collection when it first hit the runway in October. The Israeli designer described the line to us as "bold, regal, and sultry"—three words that also happen to sum up Queen Bey.
Thousands of beads and crystals (from delicate pearls to metallic caviar beads) adorned Dror's Fall 2016 wedding dresses. To create dimension, she layered unlikely fabrics. "By delicately draping semi-sheer silk organza over beautiful hand beading, it softens the look," Dror told us of the collection. "You will also see use of metallics and rich gun metals which catch the light beautifully."
So that's how the "Formation" superstar managed to shine even brighter than usual under the Grammy stage lights. Although Dror did not listen to Beyoncé's music or any music while creating the collection ("except the one in my heart"), she did look to New York City—Bey's hubby Jay Z's hometown—for inspiration. "I was inspired by the bright lights, the modern architecture, and the incredible spirit that is New York."
Bright, modern, spirited? Sounds like Beyoncé to us!
