Oscars 2009 Beyonce.jpg

We have seen a plethora of mermaid-style gowns on the Oscars red carpet, and leading the pack was Beyonce. Wearing one of her mum's designs, the diva worked her bootylicious curves in this black and gold strapless dress by House of Dereon. I can't say that I'm hugely enthused by this look, but kudos to Beyonce for not overdoing it with lots of bling and ostentatious jewels.

P.S. I *hearted* your dance number with Hugh!
