Brace yourself: Beyoncé posted quite possibly one of her greatest outfit-of-the-day shots ever on her Instagram this afternoon.

Beyoncé shared three different Instagram posts showing the outfit from all angles:
Beyoncé has had a quieter couple months following the release of The Lion King and her press tour for it. But Emilia Clarke made headlines this month when she recounted her experience meeting Beyoncé at Bey's Oscars party this year.
"I did not expect to see them, you know, in the flesh, I wasn’t expecting that at all,” Clarke said of Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z on the Graham North Show, via People. “I was just like, ‘Oh my God, I’m invited!'”

I mean, literally, eyes welling up like, ‘I can’t handle this, it’s too intense.'”
