Beyoncé realized that many of us were still reeling from her “itsy-bitsy bangs crisis” of 2014 and, to the relief of many of us, she got back to her old self and stunned at the grand opening of Topshop’s new flagship store in New York City.
Now that Bey has teamed up with the retailer, it only makes sense that she is wearing one of their dresses, which not only showed off her gorgeous legs but also showed us that she is in this partnership for the long haul. It also showed us that Mrs. Carter is perfectly fine “slumming” it by donning a $110 sparkly LBD and working it like she just got paid (which she has been, having just been named the highest-paid woman in the music industry, making $115 million in 2014 — and the year’s not even over!).
Queen B paired the dress with black platform heels, kept her makeup to a minimum and brought back her lovely bob. But while the baby bangs are a thing of the past (no, really, those 10 days were the longest of our lives), Beyoncé proved that you don’t have to have all the money in the world to look like a million bucks. And she also wanted us to know that just because you have millions (and millions) doesn’t mean you have to splurge on anything and everything, all the time. So take advantage of this rare moment and let your inner Beyoncé out — because you can! Just don’t cut your bangs, OK?
