And Bey showed up without a certain someone.

Beyoncé is making latex look good again. And she’s using it to beat out Kim Kardashian for the most searched dress on Google at Monday night’s gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

That’s according to Google Trends, which reports that since the start of the event, Beyoncé topped Kardashian, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner.

Not only that, but Beyoncé’s staying power is impressive.

Beyoncé  late last month released her latest album, Lemonade, and in it, she seemed to make reference to the alleged infidelities of her husband, Jay Z. Which is notable since, according to the Daily Mail, Beyoncé arrived at the gala alone and in a latex dress, which you can see in full detail here.

Or if you prefer your Beyoncé blurry.

Meanwhile, Kardashian—who dominated Beyoncé last year in Instagram followers—seemed to take Beyoncé’s triumph in stride, licking the face of her husband to compensate for Beyoncé’s search-engine mastery.

But clearly, Beyoncé was the Google search winner of the night, and somehow, she made latex look better than even Lt. Frank Drebin could. Oh, and her hair looked pretty good, too.
