Beyonce Knowles In Ralph & Russo – ‘A Night With Beyonce’

On Sunday night, ITV1 aired Beyonce Knowles’ first ever TV special, ‘A Night With Beyonce’, which was recorded earlier this year before she announced she was pregnant.

The energetic singer dazzled in two custom Ralph & Russo looks which were encrusted with Swarovski elements.

Ralph & Russo used over 50,000 Swarovski elements for both looks.

The first was a daring nude mesh bodysuit covered in smoke-blue Swarovski crystals. The second, a dramatic red leather flared skirt with a bronze metallic cut-out corset, also embellished with thousands of crystals, was just as breathtaking.

It wasn’t only her ensembles that sparkled as she added silver glitter Stuart Weitzman pumps.

Designers Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo of Ralph & Russo said: “Both outfits were designed especially with Swarovski Elements to help create a fun, edgy feel for her show.”

The superstar performed some of her greatest and best-known hits, as well as tracks from her latest album, ‘4’.

What the full-hour special below.

    Most people have very strong feelings about Queen Bey one way or the other but one thing that can never be denied is that you will get your money’s worth at a Beyonce concert. They’re larger than life, fabulous costumes and lots of energy.

    The bodysuit is fierce and I love the bustier and skirt.

    The white dress with fringe and with heavy gold embellishments is Fausto Puglisi right. ADR has worn that dress in every color but white. Nice to see someone else in the dress.

    I love her live shows. She always puts 100% in her performances

    In that bodysuit she looked- well Fierce.

    I was dancing around my living room wishing I was as flexible as her.

    FC, any idea who made the white gown she was wearing when she sang “At Last”? I feel like I’ve seen it on the runway, but I can’t remember who designed it…
