The Grammys last night saw Beyoncé make history. The singer now has 32 Grammy awards overall, making her the most-awarded musician of all time. She added four more golden gramophones to her haul. Beyoncé has posted a carousel of gorgeous selfies to Instagram before she even took home the fourth prize.
The singer shared photos to Instagram showing off her stunning appearance. In the photos, she is pictured holding her Grammy awards while donning a couture Balmain dress made of peachy cream velvet with a deep V-cut that reveals a metallic gold bustier underneath. There were several unusual elements in the dress, such as the off-the-shoulder neckline that grew into a structural cone that engulfed the vocalist, the thigh-high leg slit that exposed matching velvet leggings and wedge heels underneath, and the opera-length gloves. The pièce de résistance was Beyoncé’s golden crown, a flat disc-shaped cap that washed in gold and looked eerily similar to her golden gramophone statuettes.
“We won 3 y’all!” Bey captioned the photo. “To my Hive, thank y’all so much for all of your love and loyalty! Big thank you for the BREAK MY SOUL and CUFF IT wins!!!”
For her fashionably late arrival to the event, the singer changed into a corset Gucci gown with a champagne-colored bodice and a metallic silver skirt with a high leg slit and ruffled hem. She accessorized the ensemble with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, silver strappy heels, and black leather opera gloves.
She finally changed into her third outfit of the night, an all-black ensemble. The floor-length black velvet bodice and pointed, structured bodice of the strapless dress were constructed of a reflective black material. Along with black opera gloves, she coordinated.
She went on to thank her team and collaborators, as well as TikTok artists who covered her music on the social platform. She went on to thank her team and collaborators, as well as TikTok artists who covered her music on the social platform.
After taking home the awards for Best Dance/Electronic Album, Best R&B Song, Best Dance/Electronic Recording, and Best Traditional R&B Performance, she surpassed the previous record holder for the artist with the most Grammy victories. Georg Solti, a famous conductor who won 31 prizes, held the position before. Bey now holds 32 Grammy awards. Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z, who each have 88 nominations, are tied for the most nominations ever after receiving nine nominations for this year’s ceremony.
She delivered an emotional speech thanking God, her husband Jay-Z, children, and the queer community. “I’m trying not to be too emotional and just receive this night,” she said. “I want to thank God for protecting me. I’d like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three children who are at home watching. I’d like to thank the queer community for your love and inventing this genre.”
