Queen Bey made this dress famous when she wore it for the 2014 Grammys. According to Michael Costello, this dress was hand sewn for Beyoncé and finished on the exact day of the event.


The pop star styled the dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, a blond bob and bold red lips.

Candice Swanepoel

South African model Candice Swanepoel wore a similar look of the dress, getting hers from Zuhair Murad. She wore the dress for the pink carpet of the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show held yesterday.

For her look Candice went with a plunge in the front as opposed to Beyoncé’s choice of a plunge in the back.


She packed her hair in a slick bun and went with a nude beauty look.

So, which look is your fave?

    I prefer Candice’s look especially with the nude face and her hair, i dont really like Beyonce’s hair and makeup. but i prefer Beyonce’s style of the dress.

    I love my Queen Bey but Candice looks better here! Just a lil bit. I love her simple and nude look. I don’t like Beyonce hair at all.

    Beyonce’s hair is a no no for this dress. A simple hairstyle could have been better. Candice definitely won this round

    Candice nailed it. Bey’s back of the dress looking like rags.

    Back view of the dress you have to give it to Candice, but overall its a win for Queen B

    Candice wore it better and effortlessly. A while back I was looking to buy a wool coat on the victorias secret website, Candice was the model who wore the coat, I have eyeing for some time, she is one of the reasons why I purchased the coat. We both have similar body types and the sassiness too! 🙂

    Candice for the money!!! >>>Beyonce is ghetto and she just dropped the class level of that outfit for me

    They both look beautiful, but there is something no one is talking about and that is that the designer Zuhair Murad totally copied the dress from designer Michael Costello, the diferences are a joke!!!

    candice 100%
    bey’s hair and lipstick look trashy and stupid and her dress looks cheap compared to queen candice.

    I think Candice looked way better in the dress. Her choice of going with natural looking makeup as well as the plunge in the front only enhanced the look and made her look effortlessly chic.
