Grading The Fierceness Of Beyoncé's "Mrs. Carter" Tour Costumes

They all get an F... for ferocious.

Beyoncé performed the first date of her new Mrs. Carter World Tour in Serbia last night.

The costumes?

Sure — if Gone with the Wind played out in the disco era (with the O'Hara family plantation growing SEQUINS).

Over the 23 song-long setlist, Queen B fit in eight costume changes.

And throughout, her looks, including designs by DSquared2, Julien Macdonald, Peter Dundas at Pucci and Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci, dazzled. Duh. Here they all are:

1. Givenchy leotards.

Self-assured ownage.

2. The requisite billowy/revealing gown.

Too much.

Also, one bonus look, just because it's Beyoncé:

This look, courtesy of Pucci designer Peter Dundas, didn't feature in (or wasn't photographed during) last night's show. But B's not one to turn down a sparkly, tasseled mini-dress — so hopefully Mrs. Carter will be mixing up her concert wardrobe as the tour progresses.
