The United Nations might be an unlikely place for a concert, but leave it to Beyonce to transform the U.N. into a full-blown music video shoot... AND do it all for a good cause. The star visited the offices on Friday to help raise awareness for upcoming World Humanitarian Day, as well as shooting the video for her single "I Was Here." The video will debut in conjunction with the event on August 19, but luckily for us, we don't have to wait a week in order to ogle Bey's amazing outfits. In typical Beyonce fashion, she worked not one but two chic white dresses. She arrived at the U.N. in an Alexander McQueen bell-sleeved dress (complete with a peplum waist and Ruthie Davis heels, nicely done!) and later changed into a glittery Marc Bouwer ball gown for her performance. With a cutout neck, sleeve detail, and statuesque silhouette, the dress is major without being over the top and attention-grabbing without being flashy. In other words, it's a study in contrasts that totally works.
