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’.

2010 Emmy Awards – Maria Menounos In Ralph & Russo

Sexy Back Award
On Friday I showed you the sketch of Maria Menounos’ Ralph & Russo custom gown.

I prayed that she would bring the gown to life and she didn’t let me down.

I love a sexy low-cut back, but this gown also has a cut-out on the side.

The gown is adorned with more than 15,000 hand sewn Swarovski Elements, and was inspired by 1920s old Hollywood glamour.

Some of you wished this gown had been given to an A list star, but I think Maria more than does this gown justice.

It’s old Hollywood perfection which is complete with her wavy updo.

Breath-taking.

Which Was Your Favourite Ralph & Russo Dress On “Britain’s Got Talent” Judge Amanda Holden?

On Friday I did a post on Amanda Holden’s “Britain’s Got Talent” Ralph & Russo dresses which included 4 very stunning looks.

This weekend the judge wore two more stunning custom-made Ralph & Russo gowns.

On Friday night Amanda wore a midnight blue, silk chiffon corseted Ralph & Russo gown which was encrusted with Swarovski crystals and pearls.

I like the gown, but I wasn’t crazy about her hairstyle with this look as it felt a bit dated.

Her finale gown on Saturday night however, is still giving me goosebumps.

Amanda glided onto the stage sporting a shorter sexier hairstyle with fellow judges Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan.

She wore an exquisite ivory silk crepe v-neck fishtail Ralph & Russo gown with a central split.

Swarovski crystals were encrusted into the waist, power shoulders and hip detailing.

I’m torn between the drama of Monday nights gown and the knock-out beauty from Saturday nights show-stopper.

Amanda proves she is the perfect brand ambassador for Ralph & Russo’s sophisticated dresses and totally erases her SATC shocker, but which was your favourite?
