It’s officially hay fever season, the sun is beginning to creep out, and, most importantly, it’s beehive time—and not the buzzing, stingy kind. Last night, 10 May 2023, icon and queen Beyoncé kicked off her Renaissance World Tour. Instagram, TikTok and Twitter practically crumbled as concert-goers and fans began flooding the platforms with sneak peeks of the set list, audience reactions, and Bey thirst traps.

If you haven’t been able to nab any tickets but are still seeking out your annual diva-fix, fear not, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the most iconic outfits Beyoncé wore on her opening tour night in Stockholm.

Firstly, the artist kicked things off with what can only be described as a bodysuit carved by the Gods. The custom-made Alexander McQueen ensemble featured some seriously impressive silver drippings and crystal details.

Up next was a look that was giving serious Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat energy—if Joseph was one of the most influential musical performers of the 21st century. The custom David Koma fit inspired by looks from the label’s 2023 Spring collection definitely made an impact and brought metallic colour to the forefront of the stage.

From glitz to glamour, another favourite from the night has to be Queen Bey’s Loewe bejewelled full jumpsuit, inspired by the brand’s iconic glove-print dress from its Fall 2022 collection. Is anyone surprised that Loewe’s creative director Jonathan Anderson himself created such a beautiful custom design for Beyoncé to wear onstage? Because I’m certainly not.

For some of her most recent songs, we’re talking ‘CUFF IT’ and ‘COZY’, Beyoncé went full pop diva with a cut-out silver look, similar enough to her backup dancers for the group to feel like a collective, but unique enough to know exactly who’s running the show.

Oh, she also went full bee, and everyone went completely insane for it.

Another personal favourite was her custom Balmain pearl-infused look. If Gwyneth Paltrow is giving quiet luxury, Queen Bey is giving straight up high-key luxury and glamour.

One of the Renaissance artist’s final looks might appear to be one of her most understated, but in so many ways it’s one of her most iconic. It’s also reminding us of Rihanna’s legendary Super Bowl halftime performance. I’m going to be spending the next three to five working days Googling ‘where do I buy a metal breast plate.’
