The 2014 Met Gala might have been days ago, but the world is STILL talking about Beyonce's red carpet appearance—and not just because Jay Z pretended to propose to her. Her ultra-glamorous getup, consisting of a Givenchy dress and birdcage veil, was easily one of the evening's best couture displays. And judging by the designer sketch Beyonce posted on her website, the ensemble was stunning from the very start.

Only 10 more days until Divergent hits the big screens. TEN DAYS, people. That may seem like a short amount of time, but for fans of the dystopian book series (myself included), it is still long enough to feel like torture. The film's trailers have revealed little snippets of what's to come—The Pit, fear landscapes, ferris wheel, Theo James' abs—and it already looks pretty amazing. And on the style tip, thanks to costume designer Carlo Poggioli, the faction wardrobes are RIGHT on point.

The Met Gala may have only been Monday night, but in Internet time, that's EONS. Just as we were starting to get over the shock (or perhaps more accurately, the confusion) of seeing our favorite celebs try to make that punk theme work, Beyonce brings the night's festivities back to the forefront of our psyche. Yep, we're thinking about Bey's Givenchy flame-engulfed gown again. Fire-tipped over-the-elbow gloves, thigh-high boots, grommeted belt and all. And why?? Because King Bey just uploaded the original Givenchy sketch to her personal website!

Just when you think you can't get any more excited about Beyonce's headline-making wardrobe The Mrs. Carter Show tour wardrobe, she goes and uploads a bajillion unseen designer sketches of her impossibly high fashion performance outfits. It's enough to make any Bey Stan and/or fashion nerd's head spin! *selects answer D: all of the above* Posted alongside brand new concert snaps, Mrs. Hov unveils a slew of inspired mock-up drawings, from the vibrant red Alon Livne gown with waist-high slits (which BTW gives us grown-up vibes of the orange mini Bey wore for her wind machine dance in the "Crazy In Love" music video) to her SECOND gold nipple outfit of the tour courtesy of Ralph & Russo.

It's only logical course that, after being crowned "The Most Beautiful Woman in the World" last year and universally respected for her game-changing weekly style exploits on her American Idol-hosting day job, legendary designers are banging down Jennifer Lopez's door for a chance to swaddle her in their garments. One designer has come through as a clear favorite. Beirut-based Zuhair Murad is responsible for both of J.Lo's Oscar night dresses, the elegant white gown with cut-out sleeves and the plunging-necklined sequin-covered number she sported to the Vanity Fair party. The Lebanese designer will be outfitting Jenny with six looks for her summer tour and has just released sketches for a few of his creations!
