After rumors that she couldn’t appear at this year’s ceremony, Beyoncé showed up in a timeless black dress that she wore with equally stunning earrings. Between her angelic gold dress and headdress, statement hats, and essential gown collection, Beyoncé has brought us countless iconic fashion moments since she first attended the Grammys in 2000. This year’s look is more classic, but no less memorable. Bey’s mini dress, a Schiaparelli creation designed by creative director Daniel Roseberry, features a plunging neckline, strapless sleeves and gathered leather. She completed her look with matching gloves and black heels and long gold earrings, also by Schiaparelli. And of course, since this is 2021, she also wore a black face mask while sitting during the event. Jay-Z, who was also present, paired his wife with a black suit and glasses. Despite not performing, Beyoncé still stepped onto the Grammy stage to win an award for best rap song with Megan Thee Stallion (and Houston-born colleague). It also won Best R&B Performance and Best Rap Performance, making history in the process. With 28 awards, Beyoncé is now officially the artist with the most Grammys, breaking Alison Krauss’ previous record of 27 victories. “It’s so overwhelming,” she said in a speech. “I’ve worked all my life since I was nine years old and I can’t believe this happened. It’s such a magical night. “And Beyoncé isn’t the only member of the Knowles-Carter family to win big this weekend: their daughter Blue Ivy received her first Grammy for Best Music Video. Blue starred in the video for “Brown Skin Girl,” a track from the Lion King album The Gift. At nine years old, she is the second youngest artist to ever receive a Grammy. Do you like what you see?
