Beyoncé’s best looks of all time – from her Destiny’s Child days to the Renaissance tour

Beyoncé’s best looks are as iconic as her illustrious discography itself, with the singer’s statement style only getting bigger and bolder as the years go on.

From her Destiny’s Child days, clad in iconic noughties trends to her shimmering red carpet gowns, Beyoncé Carter-Knowles knows a thing or two about looking great and picking the best dresses and designer heels – and she’s rocked some incredible hair styles over the years, from long locks to short hairstyles that make us want to book a salon appointment.

‘Queen Bey’ as she’s affectionately known by her fanbase, is as much a titan in the music industry as she is in the fashion world, in fact, the term ‘fashion royalty’ springs to mind when recalling her catalogue of looks.

The Drunk In Love singer has headlined at some of the most famous music venues across the globe and walked countless red carpets, always dressed in a veritable showstopper. For instance, few could forget her purple Versace dress from the 2003 BET Awards or her leather getups from the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show. So, with that in mind, we’ve rounded up 32 of her most iconic looks of all time…

Then in 2021, actress Zendaya wore a variation of the dress in tribute to the singer’s famous ’00s look.
