Beyonce Knowles stunned on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala held in New York on Monday evening.

I can only imagine the crowd’s reaction when Bey stepped on the red carpet showing off her post-baby body in a revealing Givenchy couture gown.

The showstopping look left little to the imagination with a sheer bodysuit covered in black lace and crystal embellishments, cascading into a skirt of black and purple feathers.

In contrast to the extreme dress, Beyonce let her natural beauty shine with barely-there makeup and a sleek ponytail.
