Beyoncé Wears Skintight Brown Vinyl Dress With Matching Opera Gloves and Cowboy Hat

On Saturday night, Beyoncé shared photos from a signing for fans at Tower Records in Tokyo's Shibuya City. On theme with her album Cowboy Carter, the super star was wearing a body-hugging brown vinyl sleeveless dress with a mock turtleneck collar and matching elbow length opera gloves. The dress was sectioned in the middle with a belt and gold buckle.

In a carousel of photos, Beyoncé shared the look with and without the matching trench coat. She accessorized with strappy sandal heels, a brown cowboy hat, and several rings over the fingers of her gloves as well as large hoop earrings. She styled her platinum blonde hair down and wore a smokey eyeliner with a glossy nude lip.

The album was released on Friday, March 28, and broke records by becoming the most-streamed album in a single day on Spotify this year, according to Billboard. Beyoncé announced the upcoming project by dropping two singles during the Super Bowl in February, “16 Carriages” and “Texas Hold 'Em.” The latter debuted at the top of both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

When she revealed the album's cover art, Beyoncé reflected in an Instagram post on what it means to her to be a Black female artist releasing country music, especially music so successful already.

“I feel honored to be the first Black woman with the number one single on the Hot Country Songs chart,” she wrote. “That would not have happened without the outpouring of support from each and every one of you. My hope is that years from now, the mention of an artist’s race, as it relates to releasing genres of music, will be irrelevant.”

She continued, “This album has been over five years in the making. It was born out of an experience that I had years ago where I did not feel welcomed…and it was very clear that I wasn’t. But, because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of Country music and studied our rich musical archive. It feels good to see how music can unite so many people around the world, while also amplifying the voices of some of the people who have dedicated so much of their lives educating on our musical history.”
