Today is Beyoncé's 33rd birthday! It's been a big year for the star, dropping a new visual album overnight without warning, embarking on the On the Run tour alongside Jay Z, and owning every red carpet she's graced with her presence. She is the queen, after all. Beyoncé Knowles has been bringing the glamour since her days in Destiny's Child — but this is a star who continued to shine solo, both professionally and sartorially.
Beyoncé's fashion persona has always been one of funky glamour, bright hues, and lots of embellishment, which she always rocks with the utmost humility and sophistication. This is a diva who stays true to her taste, but tweaks herself to the times, opting for sexy, swingy frocks; tailored blazers; and artfully draped, often sheer gowns. Whether on stage, on the streets, or on the red carpet, B knows how to work it, own it, and leave us wanting more. In honor of her big day, we're celebrating with a look back at her most memorable fashion looks.
