I am Sasha Fierce! Beyoncé shakes a purple tail feather in dramatic sheer dress with super-long train as she leads the fashion pack at Met Gala
On a night when fashion's finest come out to play, there is always going to be a little competition.
And Beyonce Knowles won the fashion parade with flying colours at the A-list bulging Met Gala.
Making her grand red carpet return after giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter in January, the 30-year-old's figure looked sensational in her sheer sequin Givenchy Haute Couture gown.

B is the belle of the ball: Beyonce dressed featured strategically placed beading, a heavily corseted bodysuit sheer fabric and stunning royal purple feathers
Beyonce's got back: While the dress left very little to the imagination she looked as ever in good shape from the front and behind
The theatrical creation also featured a purple feathered tail as long as a wedding dress train.
The nude bodysuit she wore underneath was also visible, and flattering against her honeyed skin.
Other stars created much debate as to whether or not they should end up on the fashion hit or miss list at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual ball.
