Looks like Beyoncé is in an Israeli state of mind, with a pair of summer concerts reportedly scheduled in Tel Aviv and an Israeli-designed wedding gown draping her at the 58th Grammy Awards, where she presented Record of the Year.

Designed by Inbal Dror, a Shenkar-trained designer who worked in Italy before heading back home to Tel Aviv, the white and silver tulle gown featured an intricately embroidered shirtwaist-styled bodice, with thigh-high tulle cutouts on the skirt of the dress.

Despite the bridal theme, it had elements similar to the Freakum dress, another Israeli-designed piece worn in red by Beyoncé that was created by Alon Livne for her 2013 world tour.

Reports were overwhelmingly positive for Beyoncé’s bridal attire, according to Dror’s Twitter feed.

The pop queen’s appearance at the Grammys was something of a surprise, as she didn’t walk the red carpet or sit through the three hours-plus show.

Instead, news outlets reported, Beyoncé floated in dressed in her Inbal Dror dress to present Best Record to “Uptown Funk,” by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson.
