You could easily say that Beyonce—and Balmain—shut down Coachella on Saturday night (April 15) during her 26-song set that included a Destiny’s Child reunion. She donned five different looks from designer Olivier Rousteing—all custom—and it’s safe to say that her affinity for bodysuits lives on in this unprecedented moment for the California desert.
Leave it to Queen Bey to make a yellow ‘BK’ initials hoodie and denim micro-shorts a lesson in glam standards with her crimped locks and custom Christian Louboutin white patent leather boots with holographic fringe. In case you were wondering, yes, that’s a marching band behind her to go with the throwback, collegiate theme.
This Egyptian goddess-inspired, intricately embellished cape and glinting bodysuit had ‘queen’ written all over it—with the patterned motifs, earrings, and headpiece only adding to the dramatic statement.
A holographic edge—and those crimped waves—came into play with this sleek black bodysuit that skimped no shortage of allure in the garters and matching, thigh-high boots. The hot-to-trot was made for the stage, and the consistency of the hologram, patent effect made for such a seamless, sexy-glam factor.
During her performance with husband Jay Z, she kept the garter and boots theme going, but changed to an exploded mesh top emblazoned with a 2018 Beyonce crest that featured a bee, raised fist, panther, and Egyptian goddess for a quartet of power symbols.
As for that Destiny’s Child reunion, well, only camouflage would do in homage to the former girl group’s earlier years. Bey’s dazzling sequin bodysuit came equipped with matching over-the-knee boots, with her two girls likewise bringing their own style attitudes to the camo print. I love how the pouf sleeve added a feminine counterpoint to the fiercer mood here.
