Beyoncé, Ellie Goulding (The Mrs. Carter Show/REX)
Some dresses are hard for even Beyoncé Knowles to pull off; however, Ellie Goulding attempted to recycle a questionable look that Mrs. Jay Z sported earlier this year. Let's see how the metallic creation measured up on the two singers.
What they wore: A gold dress fresh off the catwalk from designer Julien Macdonald's Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.
When they wore it: The "Anything Can Happen" singer performed in the embellished gown on "The X Factor" on Sunday night. However, judging by fashion critics on Twitter, Ellie's vocals were overshadowed by the almost reptilian-looking ensemble. As for Queen Bey, she donned the design or a promotional shoot for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.
How they styled it: In true Beyoncé fashion, the "Bow Down" singer wore the curve-hugging creation with beautifully wild hair and a whole lot of fierceness. Goulding, 26, also left her hair down and wavy, pairing the double-slit dress with platform metallic sneakers.
Judge's scorecard: Though the dress isn't our cup of tea to begin with, we must admit that Beyoncé, 32, rocked the fashion-forward frock way better than Ellie. Maybe it's better suited for Knowles's body type, or maybe it's just because it's hard for Bey to look that bad in anything. Do you agree?
