By now we're used to being awed by Beyoncé. And the 2014 Brit Awards was no exception. The singer hit the stage in London to belt out her song "XO." It was the first time she performed the single on television so you know she went all out. The Grammy winner donned a truly dazzling gown by Vrettos Vrettakos, who is the same designer who created the glittering blue bodysuit for her Mrs. Carter World Tour.

This dress, however, was extra sparkly thanks to the 140,000 Swarvoski Crystals blue zirgon that comprised the form-fitting number. But despite all the bling, the singer's stylist Ty Hunter assures E! News: "It's not as heavy as you'd think."

He also shares that after falling in love with the gown at first sight he'd been "holding on to the dress for over a month," waiting for the perfect event. Luckily tonight's fete proved to be just that.

So where did Ty first meet Vrettos? Why social media, of course. "I met him on Facebook. He would send me messages on Facebook, before the tour started," Hunter explained. You may recall he also found Beyoncé's Grammy gown designer on Instagram.

After the show Queen Bey switched to sneakers and topped the gown with a jacket emblazoned with the words: Picasso Baby. A clear shout out to her hubby Jay Z's song.

Those two kids, still crazy in love.
