Everyone missed this detail about Beyoncé’s dress at the Grammys

Only Queen B could carry this off.

Trust Beyoncé to have the coolest Grammys dress going.

Since THAT pregnancy photo shoot, the obsession with Queen B has only gotten stronger.

As you’ll know unless you’ve managed to escape the internet for the past two weeks, the singer is expecting twins and she is positively blooming.

Beyoncé attended the Grammys on Sunday night, complete with two outfit changes naturally, but it’s the gold glittering gown that we’re interested in.


Oh, only because the Peter Dundas design happens to feature her face. Yep, the global star was wearing her face on her belly and you didn’t even realise.

Dundas, former creative director at Pucci and Roberto Cavalli, has just gone out on his own.

He’s been dressing Beyoncé for some time (that yellow dress in Lemonade) and so, it made sense that he create a bespoke gown for her Grammys appearance.

In an interview with Vogue Runway, he explained the inspiration behind the dress.

So, and wait for it because this is a long-winded explanation, the stunning gown includes lyrics from her song Love Drought and Art Deco motifs with the design also in homage to the African goddess Oshun.

Most importantly, Dundas designed it so that Beyoncé’s face would sit in the middle because it “was a fun way to celebrate the moment for her”.

The talented fashion designer told the fashion bible that he likes “telling stories within a garment” and this piece is a stunning example of that.

I mean, his stunning sketches, before the dress even came to be, show what an actual work of art it is.

Just WOW.
