One of the most wonderful things about Beyonce is her versatility. Bright, bold, and pushing the fashion envelope one day, she also knows how to put on a beautifully elegant dress and dazzling jewelry the next to create a put-together look that challenges the fashion legacy of any best-dressed celebrity. Case in point: The amazing black velvet gown by Atelier Versace she wore to the 2005 Academy Awards. InStyle magazine recently singled this one out for its list of the "25 Most Breathtaking Oscars Gowns".

Another elegant gown that won rave reviews was a nude-colored, intricately detailed gown by Stefane Rolland for the 2010 Grammys. Complemented by Beyonce's understated make-up and hair, the overall effect was a classically beautiful "wow."
