Perhaps the most show-stopping look, though, was a white bell-sleeved Anrealage coat that, when exposed to UV light that slowly moved down her body, turned into a kaleidoscope of colors.After the coat’s transformation, the singer cooly took it off to reveal a pearl-embellished Balmain bodysuit underneath.Social media observers went wild for the futuristic fashion, hailing her as “the queen of AI” and “BeyoncéGPT” — in a nod to ChatGPT.

But there was no artificial intelligence involved in the high-tech stage hijinks. Rather, it appeared to be the handwork of Tokyo-based Anrealage designer Kunihiko Morinaga, who wowed fashionistas at Paris Fashion Week in March by making similar fashion magic.

There, Morinaga integrated his light-dependent polychromic technology into faux fur, velvet, lace, knits, jacquards and satins, according to Vogue.For the garments, he reportedly uses photosensitive fabrics and materials that change color when exposed to UV rays and direct sunlight — bathing once colorless togs into a sea of vibrant patterns and colors.Once the photochromatic areas are no longer exposed to UV rays, the ensembles return to their original color after about three minutes — allowing Beyoncé to remove the holographic-seeming coat before the colors faded away.

Representatives for Anrealage did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment about its reported work with Beyoncé.
