Beyonce, Mary J. Blige & Jennifer Lopez Get Glam At 'Chime For Change' Concert (PHOTOS)

The highly anticipated "Chime For Change" charity concert was a huge success this weekend. But we're not surprised, especially since Beyonce headlined the event and was joined by her hubby Jay-Z and some uber talented friends like Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez and Madonna, to name a few.

We got an eye full of fabulous between all the amazing red carpet looks and the fierce stage ensembles. The stars were certainly out (and shining) for the festivities, which support Gucci's "Chime For Change" campaign to help empower girls and women around the world. And beyond the music, the night offered some rockin' style moments.

Beyonce tempted us in a sparkly, long-sleeved mini Gucci dress before the show, and then flaunted even more skin when she hit the stage in a black leather-and-chiffon leotard and ankle boots to perform some of her biggest hits. This chick loves herself a leotard! But we would too if we had a body like that. And what's a Beyoncé performance without a few costume changes? The "Grown Woman" singer dazzled the crowd with a total of three bootylicious ensembles.

We've seen plenty of stars rock sparkly jumpsuits, but we haven't seen Mary J. Blige rock the body-con getup until now. The mesh-and-sequin catsuit had a feather motif and strategically covered her lady parts. And although it's a departure from the "ghetto fabulous" outfits we're used to seeing her in, the 41-year-old singer looked fab!

Speaking of fabulous, did you see J.Lo? Taking a page from Queen Bey's book, the superstar also opted for a leotard. However, Jennifer's look was embellished with rhinestoned fringes, studded knee-high boots and a floor-sweeping coat. Wowzas!

while some aren't thrilled with the sexed-up looks in celebration of women's rights, there's no denying that these ladies looked good. And isn't being proud of your body coupled with the right to wear whatever you want one of the unofficial Feminist commandments? Just saying.


Check out those fly ladies and the rest of the stars at the "Chime For Change" concert in the slideshow below. Who do you think was best-dressed?
