All eyes were on Beyoncé on Thursday night when the singer stepped out in New York to attend Rihanna's Diamond Ball, hand-in-hand with husband Jay-Z. The 36-year-old, who welcomed twins Sir and Rumi back in June, looked sensational in a figure-hugging silk dress as she made her way into the Cipriani Wall Street. The forest-hued design featured a plunging neckline and daring thigh-high split, and was accessorised with black leg-lengthening heels and diamond bangles. Jay-Z, meanwhile, looked dapper in a navy suit, crisp white shirt and black bow tie.

Beyoncé, who wore her honey-hued hair styled in loose curls, was practically glowing throughout the evening. Her radiant complexion was enhanced with a sweep of bronzer across the apples of her cheeks, and her eyes stood out with a bold outline of black liner and lashings of mascara. A strong brow and pink lipgloss completed her look.

It's been a busy few weeks for Beyoncé, who celebrated her 36th birthday earlier in the month. The Lemonade singer spent her day at Jay-Z's Made in America festival in Philadelphia, and recruited local bakery Cake Life Bake Shop to create a special cake, thought to have cost around £2,600.
Known for her extravagant fashion, Beyoncé caused a social media frenzy back in July after she introduced the world to her twins. And while the attention was on her babies, her show-stopping gown also got people talking. The striking floor-length number by Spanish designer Palomo Spain was adorned in a whimsical floral print in mauve hues, and was part of the fashion houses' SS17 collection.
All throughout her pregnancy, Beyoncé, who is also mum to Blue Ivy, five, wowed fans with some seriously stylish outfits, spanning form-fitting dresses at red carpet events to cool jeans and bang-on-trend slogan tees while spending time relaxing at home. Memorable outfits included her head-turning gold embellished Peter Dundas gown that she wore to debut her baby bump on stage at the Grammys back in February, and her statement slogan 'preggers' T-shirt, which she teamed with ripped jeans, a denim jacket and white trainers while posing in her garden in an Instagram photo.
