Beyonce Knowles is arguably the most talented female performer on the planet.
Born in 1981, and married to rapper Jay-Z, Bey has blown us away with her music, style and glamour. She started out in 1990s girl group Destiny’s Child but has since gone on to carve herself a wildly successful solo career which has seen her win countless awards and accolades.
In 2011 she became the first woman in twenty years to headline Glastonbury but surely her proudest achievement to date is the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy, who entered the world at the beginning of 2012.
Alongside her many musical achievements, Beyonce has made her way onto most best dressed lists and has quickly become one of our favourite celebrity style icons.
From stand out show costumes, to floor-sweeping red carpet dresses, cool off-duty dressing in NYC to beautiful bikinis on the beach, Beyonce sure knows a thing or two about stylish dressing.
Here, we chart her best ever fashion moments. Starting with this combo of knee high pale blue leather boots and white lace ruffled top which Beyonce wore on the first night of her Formation tour in April 2016.
With this floral body con frock, not only is Bey championing the chicest
floral trend for summer, but teaming her pretty print with a chic white
jacket, worn draped oh-so-stylishly over her shoulders. Top marks for
those ultra-chic nude accessories, too.
Were still talking about THIS heavily beaded Givenchy dress complete with birdcage headpiece. Sheer, dramatic and utterly sexy everything a MET Ball dress should be, and easily Beyonces best look off-stage this year.
Later that day and a dash across the city, Beyonce stepped out again at the Vera Wang show in a nude leather peplum vest worn over the top of a cream puffball skirt with tulle layers by the designer. And despite being pregnant Beyonce didnt opt for flats, instead wearing a pair of tri-coloured towering platform sandals, also by Vera Wang. Respect.
Beyonce celebrated another crowd-wowing show at London’s O2 arena by partying the night away at celeb-spot Mahiki with hubbie Jay-Z. The delicious diva kept it cool and casual in a grey jersey dress – which was actually a £20 top from high street store New Look! (16 November 2009)
Yikes! It’s rare to see Beyonce with even a single hair out of place, but the superstar singer was clearly having a bit of an off-day this weekend, when she stepped out with a mop of wet-look frizzy locks. Luckily, her ever-impeccable style redeemed the situation we love her cute dotty playsuit, Chanel belt and pearls. (17 August 2009)
Beyonce’s currently wowing crowds in the UK on and off-stage, it seems! The singer, who’s been performing a string of concert dates in England, took a well-deserved night off with hubby Jay-Z, and the couple partied at Bungalow 8 and Movida. But it was B’s gorgeous sharp-shouldered Balmain jacket that really caught our eye. The singer teamed it with denim-style leggings, silver peep-toes and a super-sparkly Maison Martin Margiela sequin slouch bag. We love. (27 May 2009)

Beyonce Knowles, Golden Globes Awards 2009 – Gallery
A host of celebs have been rocking Balmain recently (most notably Kate Moss in her futuristic silver mini) to great effect. Yesterday, however, was a double bad B day: Beyoncé in Balmain. The dress is slightly too short and tight, while the giant train is a giant no-no. On the plus side, there was a good star turnout for the premiere of Beyoncé’s new movie, Obsessed, in New York.

What does one wear for an upmarket shopping trip at Lanvin in downtown Paris? If you’re Beyonce Knowles, a sparkly green mini, a tie-dye tee, a so-now leather jacket and multi-coloured gladiator sandals. Fun and fantastic. (5 May 2009)

Beyonce-Knowles-22 Feb 2009 – Oscars 2009-Celebrity Photos
Oh dear, oh dear! She may have exhibited some fashion forward looks of late, but Beyoncé let the style side down last night with this frankly hideous gown, designed by her mum, Tina Knowles, for The House of Dereon label. Think it’s about time that B learnt mother doesn’t always know best. (22 February 2009)
We’re loving Beyonce’s new addiction to Balmain! The singing superstar totally rocked in the label’s spring 2009 strong-shouldered mini with flashes of electric-blue, emerald and pink at the BET Awards this weekend. As well as looking fabulous (those giant green hoop earrings rule), B gave an emotional tribute to Michael Jackson, who tragically passed away last week. (29 June 2009)
You can always rely on Beyonce to up the glam factor on the red carpet, and she succeeded, yet again, at 2009’s MTV Video Music Awards. Showing off those endless pics and picture-perfect curves, the superstar slipped into a miniscule scarlet dress, black cut-away courts and lashings of bling. (13 September 2009)
Back in NYC and the mum-to-be attended a launch party for her new Pulse perfume. The songstress opted for sequins yet again, in a midnight blue minidress and matching blazer both by Roberto Cavalli teamed with black peep-toe heels, blue disc earrings and her hair worn in a long fishtail plait. Phew, were exhausted just looking at her.
