Quick, go look up "stunning" in the dictionary and what do you see? There's a pretty good chance you'll find a picture of Beyoncé on the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.
The "Drunk in Love" singer arrived looking downright gorgeous in a curve-hugging black lace gown with sheer detailing on the front and sides by designer Nicolas Jebran. She also brought the bling by way of some Lorraine Schwartz statement earrings.
Bey wore her hair down in romantic waves and kept her makeup clean and minimal. Even though her gown is sexy with plenty of see-through elements, it's long-sleeved, floor-length and high-necked which gives it a certain demure vibe.
