Last night, during the 56thAnnual Grammy Awards, there was nothing short of groundbreaking performances. The musical night was filled with fashion, superstars, and unforgettable performances. Jay-Z and Beyonce opened the show with their song “Drunk In Love” from Beyonce’s self-titled album. After the Carter’s steamy performance, I could not bring myself to write about anything but their opening number.
They say opposites attract and this couldn’t have been truer for the Carter Empire. A sexy, bold woman paired with a cool, coy man never looked so good together. On stage Beyonce wore a black sheer leotard by Nichole de Carle, revealing skin in all the right places. With sexy, wet hair, Beyonce took us back to the 80s with a hot Flashdancescene. To accompany her, Mr. Carter, dressed in black and white, sported a three-piece suit with a bow tie; I can only assume the designer was Tom Ford.
Post-performance Beyonce wore another sheer ensemble. Sultry turned into elegance when she put on Michael Costello’s white lace gown, while Jay continued to rock Tom Ford. The Carter’s were nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for their song, Part II (On the Run), even though the power couple took everyone’s breathe away, the Grammy went to Jay Z and Justin Timberlake for Holy Grail. Jay-Z finally had the spotlight and he still couldn’t keep Beyonce out of his mind. During his acceptance speech, Jay made a nod to his wife of almost 6 years stating, “I want to thank God, I mean, a little bit for this award, but also all the universe for conspiring and for putting that beautiful light of a young lady in my life.” And then lifting his new Grammy into the air Jay-Z finished with, “I want to tell Blue, ‘Look, Daddy got a gold sippy cup for you!”
To be honest, I don’t know who is more in love with Beyonce, Jay-Z, the world, or me. The fact of the matter is we are all drunk in love with this flawless couple and new parents. The Carters can do no wrong in their music careers or their fashion endeavors, the love is real, we are drunk.
