Keep A Child Alive’s 7th Annual Black Ball – Beyonce Knowles In Andrew Gn

Good on Beyonce Knowles who opted for the more colourful version of this stunning Andrew GN Fall 2010 strapless gown.

She wore it last night in New York to the “Keep A Child Alive’s 7th Annual Black Ball.”

I remember seeing this gown in the designer showroom last season and wishing to see it on the red carpet,

Thanks Bey for making that wish come true.

Her fuchsia satin gown drapes deliciously around her curvy hips before tying into a bow at the back.

This is the best I’ve seen Bey in a long time.

No crazy hair extensions, no OTT make-up and not a hint of try hard.

Just a beautiful girl in a beautiful gown.

I think I’m going to have to pick names out of a hat to come up with the top 10 for BDOTW.

The ladies have been killing it all week.

      tooo true, i’m baffed as to how this even made it on here as a worthy candidate for best dressed!!
      Bey is a gorgeous woman but she looks a mess here sorry…..

    for once, I like what she’s wearing! gorgeous colour and ur right, she ain’t trying too hard for once.

  4. Marvel October 1, 2010 at 23:56 #

    Im not loving the hair but Im glad she decided to go natural. Im loving the colour of the gown and the detail. Great look for her.

  5. robbie October 1, 2010 at 22:14 #

    the hideous pink dress and terrible 80s hair just bad! oh and what a new and fresh dress style for beyonce one of those fishtail dresses *rolls eyes*

  6. Thaysa October 1, 2010 at 21:14 #

    I loved the colour and the rest of the dress, but i hate the hair.

  7. Alfie October 1, 2010 at 20:55 #

    Yass!!! I always wanted Beyonce in Andrew Gn and I finally got my wish!!!

    I would have prefered the blue version but this will do. She’s such a gorgeous woman and the minimal make up only flatters her more. BDOTW contender for sure.

  8. moja31 October 1, 2010 at 20:46 #

    those don’t qualify as crazy hair extensions??
    anyway, this is the best she’s looked in formal wear in quite a while; glad she’s finally put her momma’s tacky designs behind her.

    • Fashion Critic October 1, 2010 at 23:45 #

      this is her natural hair.

      This is the hair you always see her sporting on vacation with Jay Z.

      The onstage stuff and the bleach blonde hair is usually the extensions

      • Ferferi in Paris October 2, 2010 at 14:19 #

        Or rather: usually wigs actually.

      • Lara October 4, 2010 at 13:52 #

        Nope, still not her natural hair. It’s her natural hair WIG

  9. Moxie October 1, 2010 at 20:12 #

    That X at the waist/hips just accentuates a slight pooch (or a baby bump). Not flattering. Love the color and the rest of the dress, though.

  10. Hannah October 1, 2010 at 20:00 #

    PLEASE put more than ten looks in for BDOTW. There are too many worthy. Celebrities are like buses, they all decide to look fabulous at once.

    • Fashion Critic October 1, 2010 at 20:30 #

      So true re: like buses

  11. Jones19 October 1, 2010 at 19:50 #

    The satin makes her look lumpy and her hair looks ridic, sorry Bey I’m not loving it.

  12. Elly October 1, 2010 at 19:26 #

    It’s not a question of weight, it is a question of a proper fit, it is too tight around the middle, therefore it is poorly cut for her shape. Better fitting/style regardless of your size makes all the difference.

    Gorgeous, though for me the poor fit does let her down

  13. Zett October 1, 2010 at 18:24 #

    This girl is so much prettier with minimal makeup like she’s wearing here. Heavy makeup ages her, but here she looks even younger than she really is.

    The dress is beautiful, and as for a baby bump- satin is unforgiving. She’s been on a 6+ month vacation, so maybe she’s just been eating good. LOL!

  14. justme October 1, 2010 at 18:23 #

    Guys, it’s possible for a woman to gain weight without being pregnant lol.
    Anyway, it’s amazing how much younger she looks when she tones down her make-up. I love everything about this look. She’s definitely a serious BDOTW contender.

    • Moxie October 2, 2010 at 15:57 #

      True, but that dress does nothing to hide the pooch. In fact, it accentuates it.

  15. Ferosh October 1, 2010 at 18:02 #

    She looks incredible, I haven’t seen her look this amazing since she was in Ellie Saab at the golden Globes. and you definately nailed it FC by saying her mak-up and hair looks tons better!
    BDOTW seriosu Contender!

  16. Henrique October 1, 2010 at 17:53 #

    Not sure about the black clutch but I LOVE the dress and the hair.

  17. anonymouse October 1, 2010 at 17:50 #

    is it just me or

    underneath the ‘x’ shaped draping at the hip that there is a bulge at her tummy

    ‘is she pregnant?’

  18. marie! October 1, 2010 at 17:45 #

    she looks gorgeous, but.. is that a little baby bump!?! 🙂

  19. Terry October 1, 2010 at 17:42 #

    Love her hair! The dress looks lovely on her.

  20. dee October 1, 2010 at 17:41 #

    I like everything except for the hair. It’s a beautiful gown and gorgeous color nonetheless.

  21. Sally October 1, 2010 at 17:11 #

    I love her hair! This is a stellar look.

  22. sara October 1, 2010 at 17:05 #

    she seems pregnant with this dress…and i don’t like her hair…runway version much better for me!

    • Gaber October 1, 2010 at 18:42 #

      I didn’t even think about her being pregnant.
      I just thought it was a poorly selected dress because it accentuates her average-looking body areas.

  23. renrenren October 1, 2010 at 16:56 #

    She looks AMAZING! i love everything about this look.

  24. Anissa October 1, 2010 at 16:49 #

    If I were making the list, here’s who I’d have.
    Beyonce, Anne H, Aishwarya, Cathrine ZJ, Ana Alverez, Brenda Song, Kim K, Kerry W, Olivia W, and either Heidi Klum or Blake (both made big improvements this week)!

  25. Ev October 1, 2010 at 16:45 #

    She looks great but I loved this gown in blue SO MUCH i cant even describe. So this look gets ok from me, but no admiration.

  26. Lara October 1, 2010 at 16:40 #

    Ewwww! HATE her hair… everything else is great

  27. V October 1, 2010 at 16:34 #

    i think her hair is actually kinda crazy. the color is beautiful on her. this color would look great on someone darker as well
