Last night, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual gala celebrating its Costume Institute and honoring the late designer Alexander McQueen, Beyoncé wore a dress that was a serious tribute to art and fashion … but not so much to the ability to move freely.
She and Jay-Z posed for photographers but cut the shoot short after Beyoncé had a (really) tough time getting up the steps in her cinched Emilio Pucci gown, according to Necole Bitchie. The remaining press, evidently feeling snubbed and/or deprived, began booing the couple.
It goes without saying that this mermaid gown wasn't the best choice for a person who would ideally have been able to get from point A to point B without her husband's assistance (although we thought the way Jay stepped in to help was kind of sweet). But Beyoncé probably won't lose much sleep over this red-carpet wardrobe malfunction. After all, if imitation is the best form of flattery, then having a bunch of professional adults throw temper tantrums over being unable to get a photo of you has to be the second best.
