Imitation is the best form of flattery, right? Fashion lovers oohed and aahed over Beyonce’s spectacular sparkly gown at the Met Gala, but it seems we’ve seen the superstar’s gorgeous getup before – on late TLC member, Lisa ‘Lefteye’ Lopes. There’s hardly a difference!
You know what they say: great minds think alike. That’s obviously the case for Beyonce, 33, and TLC’s Lisa “Lefteye” Lopes, who passed away in 2002. Queen Bey’s Givenchy dress surely dazzled us at the 2015 Met Gala, but the “Waterfalls” singer rocked an almost identical look eighteen years before, while performing at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards. Check out the similarities!
Beyonce Copies Lisa ‘Lefteye’ Lopes’ Sheer Glittery Dress At Met Gala 2015
From the see-through fabric, to the glittering gemstones, even all the way up to her high ponytail, Blue Ivy‘s mom paid tribute to the legendary R&B star in the most stunning of ways. Bey seriously sizzled in the Lisa-inspired ensemble, so we know “Lefteye” would have been oh-so-proud!
While Beyonce was the only star of the night who gave a nod to Lisa’s epic style, other stars hit the Met Gala red carpet showing off some serious skin just like Jay Z’s wife. Yes, we’re talking about you Kim Kardashian, 34, and Jennifer Lopez, 45!
Just like Beyonce, the bootylicious babes were all about putting their most famous assets on display in similarly sheer dresses. And lucky for us, the two divas broke Met Gala queen, Anna Wintour‘s no-selfie rule and gave us a side-by-side view on Instagram. Shout-out to Kim’s hubby, Kanye West, 37, who gets the photo cred! Take a look at the too-hot-too-handle snap.
J.Lo stunned in a deep red Versace number, covered in crystals, lace and adorned with a dragon along her torso. Perfectly fitting for a woman who set the event on fire with how hot she looked! Kim decided to keep it classy in an angelic white Roberto Cavalli trousseau, with a long-feathered train trailing behind her. Kim and Jennifer looked amazing, but Beyonce may have taken the cake for best-dressed — thanks to a little help from “Lefteye!”
Seriously, though. So. Much. Gorgeous!
