Karren Brady, 52, had something to say about one of Beyoncé’s latest Instagram post, and it’s safe to say she wasn’t very impressed. The superstar singer took to the social media site in a sparkly silver Gucci x Balenciaga suit, which cost a whopping $13,000 (£10,000).
I hate to say it, but it’s not even nice
But Karren revealed she should have opted for a less, admitting the expensive suit “isn’t even nice”.
Writing in her column for The Sun, she penned: “Beyoncé shared a picture with her 222million Instagram followers this week showing her wearing a dazzling Gucci x Balenciaga suit that cost $13,000 (£10,000).
“I guess it is fitting in some ways for a woman who has just landed on the Forbes’ 2021 World’s Most Powerful Women List to be wearing a suit that looks like it’s made of diamonds and cost a fortune.
“But someone needs to tell her that sometimes less really is more.”

She added: “Ten grand for a trouser suit – really? And I hate to say it, but it’s not even nice.”
The post was in celebration of the songstress’ husband Jay-Z’s birthday, as the two shared a rare kiss in a series of shots.
It comes after Forbes announced its list of the 100 most powerful women in the world for the 18th consecutive year.
The chart, which is broken down into different categories, ranks notable people in the realms of celebrity, politics, philanthropy, art and more.
Musicians Beyoncé, Rihanna and Taylor Swift were among a total of 15 women from media and entertainment that were honoured.
The list also includes 40 CEOs, 19 world leaders and an immunologist.
Elsewhere, The Apprentice star spoke out on her thoughts on the government supporting the Older Drivers Task Force, who called for over-70s to take a fitness-to-drive test when they are caught driving recklessly rather than face points on their licence.
It is an intervention that has been welcomed by motoring organisations, but The Apprentice star was less than impressed with the initiative.
There have been calls for older drivers to take mandatory eye tests when they go to update their licence, in an effort to reduce deaths of over-70s in crashes.

Currently, the minimum penalty for running a red light is 3 points and a £100 fine, with the points remaining on the driver’s licence for four years.
Prosecution may occur where any part of a motor vehicle crosses the white line at a red traffic light and increased penalties may be imposed to reflect more severe offences.
The report’s proposals, to be considered by ministers, state that trials should be set up to assess the benefits of fitness tests and recommend that a scheme already running in Hampshire should be introduced nationally.
But in her column for The Sun, Karren raged at the danger cold impose on other drivers on the roads.
“Should older drivers get points on their licence for running red lights?” she questioned.
“Er, surely ‘Yes, they should’, right? Well, not according to a new government-funded road safety report which has recommended that older drivers should be able to run red lights without getting points on their licence.”
A report is sent to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency if someone is found to be unsafe behind the wheel, and then the agency will then consider whether to revoke their licence or not.
“In other cases, the driver is sent away to get lessons and offered a reassessment within three months,” Karren continued.
“Those being assessed would avoid the typical £100 fine and three points on their licence but that just does not make good sense.
“In fact, any driver who can’t see a big red light or who decides it is OK to drive through one should not be driving at all,” she retorted.
