Beyoncé always surprises us with her incredible style choices.

Stepping out alongside husband Jay-Z for Diddy's 50th birthday bash, presented by Ciroc Vodka, the "Halo" singer looked flawless in a black velvet strapless gown, which featured a leg slit almost stretching up to her hip. The fitted dress was adorned with silver sequins in the shape of floral arrangements, which were suitably sparkly for this time of year.

Beyoncé completed her outfit with a matching pair of long, black velvet gloves, and a glittering silver clutch purse. Her entire look was perfectly festive. The singing superstar also had noticeably darker hair for the occasion, opting for a chic brunette shade.

Recently, the star of The Lion King gave an enlightening interview to ELLE magazine. When asked about how she deals with criticism about her fluctuating weight, Beyoncé explained, "If someone told me 15 years ago that my body would go through so many changes and fluctuations, and that I would feel more womanly and secure with my curves, I would not have believed them."

She continued, "But children and maturity have taught me to value myself beyond my physical appearance and really understand that I am more than enough no matter what stage I'm at in life. Giving zero fucks is the most liberating place to be. Also knowing true beauty is something you cannot see. I wish more people focused on discovering the beauty within themselves rather than critiquing other folks' grills."
