Beyonce has led an illustrious career as an artist, actress, dancer, designer and businesswoman. The megawatt singer commands attention on stage and in style, with a sartorial evolution that speaks to her fierce confidence and personality. After all, Thierry Mugler did come out of retirement in 2009 just to become the star’s main costume designer for the I Am … world tour. Her earliest looks can be attributed to her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, who created and styled the 90’s-defining coordinated outfits that are signature to the iconic style of Destiny’s Child. As her solo career took off and her influence grew, Beyonce had the help of stylists Ty Hunter and Marni Sernofonte to elevate her to superhuman status, armed with a line of custom couture Balmain, Roberto Cavalli and Gucci for the stage and red carpet. With a preference for bodysuits, from Versace fishnets to a Swarovski-encrusted Ralph & Russo number, her personal taste shines through mermaid silhouettes, statement accessories and strategic embellishments that complete the sexy-elegant aesthetic only Bey can pull off.
