Beyoncé Knowles is always in the spotlight, but she really took the world by storm in 2013. After kicking off the year with an HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream, and an unforgettable Super Bowl halftime performance — featuring a Destiny's Child reunion, no less! — she embarked on the Mrs. Carter Show tour, which spanned from April to December. When we say Beyoncé was everywhere this year, we mean it: she became the new face of H&M, landed her her first-ever covers for Shape and British Vogue, and many versions of her starred in Pepsi's ad campaign. But Beyoncé didn't stop there. She debuted a brand-new 'do on Instagram in August, shocking the world with a bold pixie cut, and then changed it again with a blond dye in November! We just can't keep up.
Click through to see her biggest 2013 successes, listen to her new music, and check out the many other exciting moments from Beyoncé's big year. We'll be waiting anxiously to see what Queen Bey has coming up next. Until then, though, be sure to check out our other Best of 2013 coverage.
