    it’s like she is wearing the same hideous dress for every event except they are in different colors. I hate that mermaid cut and it looks like it’s too hot and itchy. Yuck, ditch your mother as your stylist please and get someone with class.

    Most of you are blind. The Woman and the Dress won the Red Carpet. This is something most of you kids wouldn’t know about, real Woman. The only problem with these pictures is despite this sterling performance and the brickbat of idiots, the big injustice is no photos of Sophia Loren. I saw one small photo. Beyonce harkens back to when ‘Movie Stars’ were voluptious and hourglassed like Sophia, not the anemia stick figures most of you prefer.

    Sophia Loren won this Red Carpet but cannot expect any photos to be posted because she’s too old for most of you to remember or respect.

    This dress is pretty awful. It looks like a sofa. She really, really needs to revamp her look. She always looks like a stuffed sausage in her dresses. Her stupid pose–she looks like Barbie with the permanently bent arms.

    susanist Says:

    BudLite used to market their swill to Beavis and Buttheads like those of you making the usual Dumb and Dumber remarks. You know, the commercials where guys make fools out of themselves for a BudLite? The Belgian company put an end to these ads as it served to pose their customers as stupid and too dumb to know they were the butt of the joke. However the term ‘BudLite’ applies to the jackoffs who look at classic beauties like Beyonce and are forevermaking dumbass remarks. The dress shows off the figure and the figure is a standard in every civilised country which understands Sex Symbol and those women who inspire the urge to procreate.

    That’s Beyonce and its why Asia is so far ahead of us for the lack of any class in the lot of you.

    why is she so fixated on this fishtail look? it does not make her look better/slimmer. change it up a bit, girl. and this fabric makes it doubly awful.

    mertz Says:

    hey jared. i don’t like the dress. ugh. it’s the usual, not really surprised. i hope it’s not zuhair murad, since this is really ugly. jay mandel at e said it was gorgeous or exquisite embellishment/print design or some sh*t like that and although he’s canadian, that statment was unforgivable. ugh. it was soooo bad. but aside from that she sang well tonight. it was good. it could have done without the rest of them and had maybe more of that drumline which was GREAT!

    pb Says:

    Wow! I was just searching the web for pics of her dress because I didn’t see it on tv earlier and I am overwhelmed by all the negativity over her dress. It is one thing not to like the dress, but dang…if people have their own style that just happens to be different, then damn! Let them have it. You people spend so much of your energy putting out negativity that you can’t even respect someone, their craft, and the fact that many out there appreciate their craft. I am not saying Beyonce is the best talent out there, but with so much of a lost craft these days, Beyonce is one of few great performers…she can sing and dance while still holding a wonderful tune..something that MANY of these performers can’t do. She knows how to put on a show plain and simple. And as for her dress…it is different (and pretty) and she seems happy in it so what the hell else is there to say!!!

    so fugly and she definitely wore it b/c she thought it would slim her down, and it ended up doin the opposite. you could tell from the way its made with the black on the sides. it looks way too thick and she gaining weight by the minute! smh she loses once againstill love her tho, but she needs to fire her stylists who isnt her mom, but that guy you see fixing her dress, so damn tacky!

    mertz Says:

    i like beyonce. i’m not a fan of always doing the s shape but atleast she dresses for her body shape and to show off her assets. infact my dad said, when we saw her in that damn dress “this is how a woman should look and dress like”. there’s something that bothers me about this dress…maybe because the gold is too strong, it’s too fitted. the asymetry (lathough it’s wonderfully sewn), the bustier ouline is alright…but really this dress is too fn much. i mean marion colltiards dress at the bottom (that fill-in material) is too much but atleast it workd for her dress type. UGH. this dress has ruined my night. and people standing up for this dress. wowzers.

    lol. someone from toronto totally outing b. did she really. i was too busy recovering from her ugly dress and wondering why her red outfit was so unsexy and such a sexy woman. ugh. she should definately get a different stylist or something because she does nothing new. i actually like her when she’s totally reaching left of field and experimenting with fashion. atleast that’s creative. ugh. i need to leave this section of the page and watch slum dog sweep the oscars. love that film score. it’s the best. best drums, and vocals, even if i don’t understand hindi or whatever’s being sung.

    nobody gives a damn about no screaming fat ass jennifer hudson. was she invited to perform? hell no.

    you stupid haters on here can say what you want but at the end of the day Beyonce is doing better than your favorite artists. Where was Britney or any of the other no talents ya’ll lust over. They were probably watching Queen Beyonce on t.v.

    She has a great body and she was the best part of the performance. Keep making your haters mad Beyonce!!!!

    Nine times out of ten she always manages to look kind of cheap and tacky on the red carpet. She overthinks it, she’s into herself a bit too much and it comes through her red carpet fashion choices.

    europeanChick Says:

    @ NY, who the **** is talkin about jennifer hudson?! at least jennifer knows her size. Fat-ass beyaki always tryin to be sexy by wearing clothes that are 10 sizes smaller. she just looks like a stuffed sausage. her ghetto ass should have stayed home if she wasn’t such a famewhore!!

    To all of you who say beyaki is talent…y’all joking, right?! she can’t even put a sentence together!

    whoever think she’s classy…even a blind person could tell beyaki is ghetto, just by listening to her talking! and that dress came from her house of fat derriere clothing line(for ghetto girls/women/tranny).

House of derriere designs clothes for people who are from the project only, cause no one in their right mind would wear that ****!

    This dress is HIDEOUS!! Absolutely worst dress. And the performance was ****** and right up Beyonce’s alley. Ghetto and low class. She lip synched her performances, just watch the next time she sings at an event. This is the closest Beyonce will get to an Oscar. Her voice is like hearing chalk on the boards. This dress is a House of Dead Wrong.

    FlyFreshfar Says:

    I love Beyonce but the dress is a bad look. Its not the print but the shape of the dress that kills it. She should have worn ear rings too!!

  82. 82
    Kay Says:

    Will you dumb ass stop saying who is the baddest all of these females are bad in their own way, no of them sing alike they have their own style of performancing, maybe if we stop making them feeling like it’s a contest and enjoy the music they can give us some real music. If they don’t come out fast enough they are one hit wonders, we just always putting labels on famous people.

  83. 83
    kristy Says:

    Yes, the dress is a mess; but why does it have to be about her being ghetto? Why can’t it just be that the dress is a mistake? I swear to the fashion gods, that if say, Kate Winslet had worn this gown, she’d be a lot less battered for it, if not praised…

    Why aren’t the runway stylists bashed for their creepy, unwearable, couture crap that’s displayed year after year? Now that sh*t is ugly.

    And for those of you who so went there about Beyonce’s weight, please, come on, do you mean to tell me that she’s FAT? I think women that appeal to all men (white, black, hispanic, asian etc.) are especially threatening to jealous insecure women. (i.e. you HATER)

    Ghetto or not, white or black, I bet your man would rather be seen with Beyonce in that ridiculous dress than you in your best attire – ANYDAY.

    And that’s the truly hurtul part isn’t it? Hating ass bi**hes.

    PS. Just a thought…

    That judgmental, slanderous diarrhea coming out of your mouth will soon land you in a place far worse than any ghetto you have ever imagined – LOVE YA!

    butterfly blu Says:

    I think the print is pretty disastrous and over the top…
    And a metallic print, makes it absolutely dreadful…
    But the cut of the dress and the way it’s fitted to her?
    If it were a simple solid black material, with different accessories…
    We’d love it! LOL
