Beyoncé - "Schoolin' Life"

J.R. Taylor Choreography

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Beyonce Knowles (Bauer Griffin)Beyonce Knowles was quite the stunner in Emilio Pucci at Monday evening's Met Costume Institute Gala, but her beauty came at the price of mobility.

Like many of the guests at the star-studded bash, Knowles had trouble mounting the steps into the museum in her floor-length gown. Her husband Jay-Z appeared to be leading her step by step, until a friend swooped in to speed up the process. The laborious efforts were, of course, documented by the swarm of photographers clamoring around the red carpet.

Other guests we imagine had a tough time moving around: Madonna (in Stella McCartney),Christina Ricci (in Zac Posen) and the fabulously feathered Daphne Guinness (in Alexander McQueen).
