Beyoncé Keeps It Simple In Alexander McQueen Leaf Crepe Suit

Beyoncé kept her look  simple at the Two Kings Dinner. She wore an Alexander McQueen Leaf crepe jacket, and Leaf crepe boot cut trousers. The suit was paired with Maison Martin Margiela Four Set 22-karat gold-plated knuckleduster rings. Although the look has a masculine feel to it, the hair and bustier gave the look a chic twist. I wonder if she is going for a more masculine look for the new album. Time will tell…

Solange accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels (I guess wearing Lorraine’s jewels is a family tradition) and a pair of pink Christian Louboutin Pigalle Spikes. Her hair is everything! Solange can do no wrong in the style department.
