This year alone, Beyoncé sang for the president, headlined the Super Bowl, scored her 17th Grammy, debuted a highly rated HBO documentary and was named half of pop music’s first billionaire couple (with hubby Jay-Z). So what does such an accomplished woman wear to launch her latest world tour?

The answer, in a gold-plated nutshell, is whatever she wants. And she did.

Beyoncé kicked off “The Mrs. Carter Show" tour Monday in Serbia, and the pop diva donned some daring attire.

Photos that hit that net – and have tongues wagging – show the singer in a number of barely there numbers including a white sheer mini skirt, a handful of edgy cat suits, and a low-cut full-length blue sequined cat suit (the shade of blue reminds Pop & Hiss of Pepsi, which the singer struck a $50 million deal to hawk).

But the outfit that’s getting the “Bootylicious” singer the most ink: a gold-sequined bodysuit that accentuates her famous curves. Pretty tame, until you peek at the singer’s chest and notice the outfit is bedazzled with sparkly, er, erect nipples -- Ooh là là!

Beyoncé’s trek -- her first both since 2009 and since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy last year -- and her glittery assets travel through Europe this spring before opening in the States with a show at Staples Center on June 28.
