On May 10, Beyoncé embarked on her highly anticipated, 57-show Renaissance World Tour, showcasing tracks from the album that shifted the zeitgeist back to an era of glamour, excess and celebration. 2022’s Renaissance paid homage to the LGBTQUIA+ and BIPOC communities of the ’80 and ’90s, specifically highlighting ballroom culture and house beats with a fusion of disco influence. Though we’re still hoping (and praying) for the promised visuals that accompany the music, there’s no doubt the tour is anything short of a spectacle. Enter the costumes.

Throughout the Renaissance era, Bey has dressed in an excessively opulent fashion, channeling iconic divas like Grace Jones, Bianca Jagger and Donna Summer. Relying on fashion houses such as Schiaparelli and Balmain (collaborating on the latter for an exclusive Renaissance collection), the star’s recent looks reflect the central themes of the album: downright joy with an unapologetic ode to extravagance. 

On the Renaissance World Tour stage, Beyoncé wore a kaleidoscopic mix of dance-ready designer looks that shone for the cameras. Styled by Shiona Turini, the looks included pieces by Loewe, Anrealage, The Blondes, Balmain, David Koma, and Casey Cadwallader, to name a few.

Though Renaissance showcases the haute couture side of Beyoncé, it’s worth noting just how much her style has evolved from the beginning of her career nearly three decades go. At first, Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child’s Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland were famously styled by Bey’s mother, Tina Lawson. They showcased peak Y2K vibes with low-rise jeans, a ridiculous amount of crystals and Southern hip-hop edge. Once solo in 2003, Beyoncé delivered one unforgettable look after the next—from her “Crazy in Love” denim shorts to that epic 2011 MTV VMAs baby reveal and 2018’s custom Balmain, HCBU-inspired Coachella look.

And while most of us can’t hit up Schiaparelli for a custom look for the Renaissance concert this summer, the Beyhive can honor Bey’s style in a more affordable way. Below, shop 10 complete looks that reference Beyoncé’s past and present style. Just remember: Unique! That’s what you are.

“Alien Superstar”
