Beyoncé Gets Her Own Costume Exhibition At The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Beyoncé's costume exhibit is one stop you're not going to want to miss.

Planning your USA road trip just got a whole lot more exciting. Beyoncé is getting her own costume exhibition at the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, and this is one stop you’re not going to want to miss.

No, this isn’t a yawn-worthy pit-stop to see the world’s biggest ball of yarn (yes, it exists). This is a legendary exhibit of Beyoncé Knowles’ most famed outfits, from her renowned ‘Single Ladies’ leotard to her white tank top and denim cut-offs from the ‘Crazy in Love’ video.

Beyoncé isn’t even eligible to be entered into the hall of fame yet. She’ll have to wait till 2022 for that. But this superstar’s career has been so colossal, and her style so iconic, the Cleveland museum decided that now was the time to showcase Sasha Fierce’s costume collection.

‘When we looked at the depth of the amount of stuff that she was willing to send, we just thought, ‘The only way we can really showcase these items is to put them in the Legends of Rock area in the museum,’ which really is the spot that we have to pay tribute to legends of rock, which Beyoncé has proven herself to be,’ said Rock Hall curator Meredith Rutledge-Borge.

Beyoncé’s exhibition will sit amongst iconic wardrobe pieces from Michael Jackson, David Bowie and Bruce Springsteen.

The exhibit highlights include her leather and lace body suit from the 2013 Superbowl, her black Givenchy gown from the 2012 Met Gala, the gold Gareth Pugh dress she wore in the ‘Run The World (Girls)’ video, and the Thierry Mugler gold metal body suit and Ruthie Davis heels from the ‘Sweet Dreams’ video.

Legends of Rock- Beyoncé’s Personal Collection opens 22 July, 2014.
