Since kicking off her highly-anticipated Renaissance Tour back in May, Beyoncé has been on a fashion roll. The iconic performer has unveiled a new designer ensemble at every tour stop, with each look equally as stunning as the next. Wearing custom looks from world-renowned fashion houses such as Mugler, Alexander McQueen, and Balmain, the superstar’s style M.O. has been heavy on glamour and sequins.
Queen B has also been on a streak of wearing local labels at different stops on the tour – illustrating fashion diplomacy at its finest. We have curated a list of some of our favourite looks from Bey’s Club Renaissance-ready ensembles – which have all been worth the hype.
“I’m Black Like That”
Beyoncè is notorious for making political statements through her art – be it visually or sonically. In celebration of Juneteenth, the singer exclusively spotlighted black fashion designers. She posted the homage on Instagram, captioning, “In honour of Juneteenth, everything I wore for RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR tonight was created exclusively by Black designers.” These looks included: a red jumpsuit from Off-White, a custom Balmain gown, as well as a pink high-slit dress from her collaboration with Adidas – Ivy Park.
“Mastermind in Haute Couture”
Yes, you can always count on Beyoncé to wear a form-fitting catsuit. To complement the silver aesthetic of Club Renaissance, the one by Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika had a handful of eye-catching details. The bodice comprised various strands of rhinestones and crystals, as well as a sheer portion wrapped entirely around her body (even down to her boots).
French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus is from Marseille, France so it’s fitting that he outfitted Beyoncè, our diplomatic fashionista for her tour stop there. Jacquemus, who attended the concert, designed a form-fitting mini dress, boots, and gloves that featured disco ball-esque paillettes.
This custom gown by Alebrta Ferretti had an embroidered leotard and a gold-draped train that cascaded down Bey’s side. The iconic musician wore the eye-catching piece with matching knee-high boots and black opera gloves (which have been a running theme in many of her looks throughout the tour thus far).
Mrs. Carter and her dancers wore colourful David Koma looks for the sensational show’s opening night in Stockholm, Sweden. The ruched dress, which she wore with a reflective jacket, was inspired by the fashion brand’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection. Moreover, the vibrant coloured dress complemented the upbeat nature of the songs that she performed while donning it – namely chart-toppers “Cuff It” and “Break My Soul.”
Beyoncé performed in Barcelona wearing a custom leather catsuit designed by Fendi, with matching over-the-knee boots and gloves. The singer layered an upcycled fur cape – also by Fendi – to finish off the ensemble, featuring a ribbon motif from the spring/summer 2022 collection. The catsuit’s illustrations were inspired by late Puerto Rican fashion illustrator, Antonio Lopez.
“Cozy with Who I Am”
Beyoncé debuted the bee theme rolling on the opening night of her tour in Stockholm when she wore a custom Mugler catsuit complete with towering antennas and bug-like sunglasses.
This custom Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit is one of many bee-themed looks that Beyoncé has worn – reminding us that there’s a reason she’s referred to as Queen B. The piece features black and yellow embroidery, as well as coordinating opera gloves.
“But she make it look easy ’cause she got it (check my technique)”
For her fifth and final show in London, Beyoncé wore a custom Mary Katrantzou surrealist mini dress with black and gold detailing. The look, meant to resemble a perfume bottle, also featured a custom Stephen Jones bottle top headpiece, latex boots, and gloves.
“Too Classy for This World”
For her Amsterdam tour stop, Queen Bey switched things up and debuted her most ethereal look yet. It was less disco wear, more angelic and otherworldly. Routinely opening the show with “Dangerously in Love,” Beyoncé took the spotlight in a custom creation from Iris van Herpen, a futuristic Dutch designer best known for her sculptural, avant-garde silhouettes. (Iris also created one of the looks for Beyoncé’s “Mine” music video, featuring Canadian rapper Drake.)
The nude-illusion dress featured a silver, scale-like design with oversized collar detail and was reminiscent of Hollywood’s “barely there” trend from the early 2000s. At the arms, an attached pearlescent cape also flowed in the wind behind her, like wings. The ensemble felt perfectly in line with all of the other metallic looks that she’s debuted on her tour thus far, while also serving as a refreshingly delicate addition to the mix.
“It Should Cost a Billion to Look This Good”
During her sensational show in Amsterdam, the performer also debuted a custom corseted bodysuit in black faille with duchesse satin detailing and draped crystal fringe, by high-end fashion brand, Gucci.
“Feed you Diamonds & Pearls”
Beyoncé has also partnered up with Tiffany & Co. for her Renaissance tour. The luxury jewellery company has gone all out to make the singer her own custom pieces that will perfectly accompany her lavish stage outfits. Every performer wears an earpiece on stage, but not everyone wears an earpiece made from 4.5 carats of white diamonds (here’s a hint: Beyoncé does). She will also be wearing an array of Tiffany HardWear and Esla Peretti jewellery throughout her tour as well.
