Beyoncé is the Queen of the flawless photo - and so it came as no surprise that she greeted the paparazzi at the Tidal X Party with a sultry pose and a camera-ready smile.
However, a fan's video, filmed at the very moment the paps' flashbulbs began to pop, shows that the preparation for red carpet shots is anything but cool, calm and collected.
The video shows Bey being fussed over by a fashion assistant who hurriedly adjusts the neckline on her Philipp Plein Fall 2015 burgundy gown, until Beyoncé mouths at her to "stop".
A word from Queen Bey is her command...
Many have hailed Bey's move as "cold" shut down of the assistant, but we think it was more a sign of her professionalism, ensuring the photographers can get the shot they need.
As the assistant shuffles off to the sidelines, she doesn't look too bothered about Beyoncé's "cold command", so we reckon the request is pretty par for the course - plus, we're not professional lip readers but it appears that the command "stop" was quite possibly followed by the word "please".
