Queen Bey broke the internet when she made a surprise appearance at Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour concert movie premiere. And her “Alien Superstar”-inspired look still has the Beyhive buzzing.

The A-list duo stunned on the red carpet at the Grove in Los Angeles. Following the Oct. 11 screening of Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, the “Cruel Summer” hitmaker paid tribute to her impeccably dressed guest of honor.

“She’s taught me and every artist out here to break rules and defy industry norms,” Swift wrote on Instagram. “Her generosity of spirit. Her resilience and versatility. She’s been a guiding light throughout my career.”

Although fans were keen to get their first glimpse of Swift’s record-breaking release, all eyes were on Beyoncé’s red carpet attire — the details of which can be explored below.

Beyoncé’s All-Black Ensemble

A major contrast from Swift’s sky blue ball gown, the Grammy winner stepped out in an all-black ’fit that would look right at home on the Renaissance World Tour stage.

“Beyoncé took silver and metallics to another level during her Renaissance tour this summer.”

Her red carpet ensemble included a body-hugging catsuit, combat-style boots, and a futuristic pair of visor sunglasses. The metallic shades perfectly coordinated with the pièce de résistance of her look: a shimmering gunmetal breast plate.

The Look Was Secretly NSFW

The reflective accessory was designed by LaQuan Smith and made to look like actual breasts. If you look closely, you’ll even notice a pair of mirrored nipples. All in all, her daring ’fit fell squarely under the unofficial Renaissance tour dress code.

“Beyoncé took silver and metallics to another level during her Renaissance tour this summer,” says Gabrielle Bondi, Bustle TV Editor and member of the BeyHive. “It’s no surprise to see her continuing to elevate the trend with a chrome breastplate and futuristic specs.”

Taylor’s Gown Was So 1989-Coded

Swift’s $12,0001989 blue” Oscar de la Renta gown, as some fans dubbed it, seemingly referenced her forthcoming 1989 (Taylor’s Version) album re-release, which is set to drop on Oct. 27.

Eagled-eyed Swiftie’s also pointed to the hitmaker’s faux bob — an apparent nod to the cropped hairstyle she rocked during that era.

Swift accessorized with diamond jewelry, open-toe pumps, and her signature red lipstick for an added touch of glamour.
