Beyoncé performed four times at Revel in Atlantic City over the long weekend — her first concerts since giving birth back in January. Those in the crowds included First Lady Michelle Obama, with daughters Sasha and Malia; Us Weekly reported the trio sang along and even danced to "Single Ladies." In costumes designed by British label Ralph & Russo, Beyoncé showed off the results of lettuce meals and treadmill workouts: 60 pounds of pregnancy weight completely gone. Click through our slideshow to see that trim figure and the many glitzy outfits that semi-covered her during the shows.
As if that spotlight would be pointed anywhere else.
Don't get too distracted by the oddly multicolored nails; there's a serious wedding ring front and center you should be ogling instead. And you know Beyoncé wants you to ogle it.
"My pants are over there, and quite frankly I cannot be bothered to get them." And who needs pants when there's fringe on your bodysuit anyway?
This fan's expression: four parts adoration, one part fear — because it's not even worth imagining messing up Beyoncé lyrics in her very presence.
Despite what this fringed minidress might leave you expecting, Beyoncé did not break into an ice-skating routine. But she no doubt could if she wanted to — because Beyoncé can do anything.
But she did add a sparkly striped military-style cap to the ensemble ... for obvious reasons, it didn't stick around very long.
After looking at this outfit for a while — perhaps in the hope of finding a funny caption, who knows? — you'll note it begins to resemble a rather angry frog's face.
Flexible ostriches will be plucking their own feathers and sending them to Bey for future shows, just so they can say they too have brushed greatness. You can never go wrong with ostrich feathers.
And despite the "oops, where are my clothes" expression here, you can't really go wrong with a glitter-tastic burlesque outfit either. And yes, the ostrich feathers do help.
Somebody's got a post-baby body they want to show off. (And deservedly.)
Oh, and meet Luke James, Bey's warm-up act. He decided to pair his sharp black suit with a shiny vest and a pair of red Vans sneakers. In other words, Beyoncé's looks required all the stylists in the building.
