Beyonce wore a sheer see-through golden gown at the Met Gala and the photos and video — which, yes, you can see here! — are setting social media on fire. The annual event at the Metropolitan of Art’s Costume Institute often brings out such extreme and notable red carpet.

This time around, the 33-year-old music superstar chose the tried-and-true method for stealing the show, going for a sheer dress with strategically placed jewels to place herself in the realm of tastefully enticing instead of completely inappropriate.

They don’t call her Queen Bey for nothing, and she, alongside husband Jay Z, looked like American royalty as they walked the red carpet, if we can define it by how daring the gown might be and how much social media buzz it’s getting. For those who might want to copy the look, it will be costly as this is a custom Givenchy haute couture gown by Riccardo Tisci. Beyonce topped off the look with a long, golden, fairytale-like pony tail cascading down one shoulder.

Year after year, Beyonce has managed to make her mark at the annual event which is held in New York City at the at the Metropolitan of Art and signals the beginning of the annual exhibition. This year’s theme was “China: Through The Looking Glass.” The parallels to that country — with or without benefit of looking glass — and Beyonce’s gown aren’t really what’s being talked about, let’s face it.

Similarly, the memories of last year’s infamous elevator fight which saw her sister Solange attacking Jay Z in a New York City elevator are far in the distance. Yes, a year and a new gown make quite a difference.

While Beyonce does not have new music or a tour on the horizon, her husband Jay Z has been in the news of late, defending, most recently on Twitter, his online music streaming service, Tidal.

But the night was a night of festivities and of being seen, and both were rulers of that very night.
