Beyoncé stunned the crowd at Dubai's Atlantis The Royal hotel with a dazzling Ukrainian-designed stage wear for her final performance during a private launch party over the weekend.
The 41-year-old pop superstar made a surprise comeback, performing at the luxury hotel's three-day opening event, on the outer crescent of Palm Island, in front of several A-list celebrities and media outlets.
Aside from giving a full-length live performance for the first time since Coachella 2018, she served lavishing, colorful, and dazzling costumes that highlighted her physique and gave life to the show. One of her outfits also held a "meaningful" message amid the current global crisis of war.
During the finale, Beyoncé donned an ensemble created by Ukraine's Ivan Frolov, which according to the designer, "was created in the brand's production in Kyiv, Ukraine, during [the] war and massive blackouts," according to People.
The hot pink dress the singer paired with crystal-embellished leggings and pink gloves was exclusively designed for the pop star. It was made using special couture techniques, such as the inclusion of a galvanic fine gold in the boning of the corset and hand-embroidered crystals, the outlet noted.
Frolov is well-known in the fashion industry for dressing several Hollywood stars, including Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Gwen Stefani, Rita Ora, Nadia Lee Cohen, Ashley Benson, and many others.
According to the brand's website, the fashion label is driven by "freedom and provocation" since it launched in 2015, and it seeks to explore and communicate messages the "brand feels important to raise," including "transsexuals' culture, BDSM ethics, and aesthetics, fetishism, LGBTQ+ movement."
"It just goes to show that no matter what, Ukrainian brands continue to showcase the world their resistance and culture," a statement for Frolov read, People reported.
Beyoncé kicked off the Dubai set— a gig for which she was reportedly paid $24 million— with her rendition of Etta James' "At Last" before she brought her 11-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, to the stage for a special duet, singing "Brown Skin Girl."
The Grammy-award-winning musician also performed her hit singles "Countdown," "Crazy in Love," "XO," "Halo" and "Freedom" during the 60-minute show in front of a huge crowd. Stars like Rebel Wilson, Liam Payne and Kendall Jenner were reportedly in attendance.
Jay-Z, the singer's husband, their 5-year-old twins Rumi and Suri, and Beyoncé's parents, Tina and Mathew Knowles, were also present to show their support.
