10 Fashion Lessons We Can Learn From Beyonce

Experimenting Works ... Until It Doesn't

When the world is your fashion oyster, it's fun to experiment with different looks, and Beyonce is one personality who can do it with panache. Sometimes taking risks works beautifully, like her gothic goddess or rocker chick looks. Even the barely there dress she wore to perform at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards seems to work with her bootylicious figure and glowing skin.

And then sometimes it's not so great. Take the futuristic Gareth Pugh dress she wore to the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards that makes you wonder "what was she thinking?" The blocky design fails to flatter Beyonce's famously feminine figure; its metallic look camouflages everything we love about the singer's soft curves.
