Everything you needed to know about the singer's Wearable Art Gala look.

At the Wearable Art Gala in London, Beyonce made a stunning appearance in a structured gold gown by Indian designers Falguni and Shane Peacock. 

Inspired by Nubian warrior queen Amanishakheto, the gown had metallic cutouts placed strategically to mimic the shape of the armour. 

An elaborate gold train was added to create a 3-D effect and emphasize royalty.

The gown, which took a total of 10 days to be created, was an ode to Cleopatra with its 3-D metallic cutouts and gold foiled train designed to resemble Egyptian art.

Take a look at the elaborate gown.
