Her edgy, goddess-like appearance came with a big announcement.
Dundas, who left his post as creative director of Roberto Cavalli last year, shared sketches of the outfit on Instagram, announcing that it is his first piece to debut from his Peter Dundas x Beyoncé dresses: “Announcing the very first #peterdundas eponymous collection look specially made for our muse queen Bey.”
He also shared another sketch — a striking red number with a large bust exposure, writing, “PETER DUNDAS X BEYONCE FIRST LOOK!! Proudly announcing the very first #peterdundas eponymous collection look specially made for our muse queen Bey #grammys2017 #PeterDundas #Beyonce @beyonce.”
The singer performed “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” at the award show, and she won Best Urban Contemporary Album for “Lemonade.”
The acclaimed album debuted with companion videos last April, featuring shoes by Saint Laurent and Amelie Pichard x Pamela Anderson Angel booties, as well as a custom Cavalli gown.
The album nodded to her Southern roots, family and politics, so it was only fitting that her introspective piece was celebrated on the music industry’s biggest night with her husband, Jay-Z, and their daughter, Blue Ivy. Beyoncé’s sister, Solange, was also among the crowd, as well as her mother, Tina Lawson, who introduced her before she hit the stage.
It was Beyoncé’s first major public appearance since announcing on Feb. 1 that she’s expecting twins.
Taking to Instagram, she shared at the time, “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. — The Carters.”
