You're supposed to wear something a little out there to the high-fashion Met Costume gala (Kathie Lee called them the "Oscars of the East"). But there's "out there," and then there's "Beyonce, out there."

"This was not my favorite," said Kathie Lee of Our lady of Blue Ivy's very sheer Givenchy beaded number with purple feathered trim. It was less "Love on Top" than "A Couple of Strategically Placed Sequins on Top and Nothing On The Bottom." The ladies showed the dress from a few angles, which left little to the imagination.

"You really do see the whole… Oohhhh," said Hoda, trailing off at a photo of Beyonce's posterior.

"We love Beyonce," said KLG.

What do you think? Are you "Crazy in Love" with this gown, or do you wish it would "Disappear?"

Hollywood’s biggest stars opted for bright and bold gowns at the 2012 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
