Beyoncé’s best stage outfits are often sexy, but they’re always very fashionable and flattering. The pop star knows how to put on a show, and her latest “On the Run” tour proves just what a huge part fashion plays in her stage presence.
See a few of Beyoncé’s best stage outfits, from her successful ‘The Mrs. Carter Show’ World Tour to TV performances where Beyonce shined as brightly as she does in stadium concerts.
On the Run Tour in Atelier Versace Bodysuit
The Atelier Versace Pre-Fall 2014 collection got a huge endorsement on stage for Beyoncé’s first performance on her new tour. However, one of the most striking looks was a custom-made Atelier Versace bodysuit. The brightly colored bodysuit with the iconic Versace Medusa medallion and animal prints was truly one of Beyoncé’s best stage costumes ever.
Super Bowl Performance
For the 2013 Super Bowl performance, Beyoncé was joined on stage by her former “Destiny’s Child” members, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Their outfits were in black leather, just like Bey’s. The leather and lace bodysuit with black leather elbow-length gloves is definitely one of Beyoncé’s best stage outfits, plus, she delivered a truly iconic performance during the halftime show.
On the Run Tour in Elie Saab Jumpsuit
Some of Beyoncé’s best stage outfits are from her latest tour, and her Elie Saab white jumpsuit shows that the singer loved the designer’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection. With a delicate lace bodice, the jumpsuit is more demure than most of her stage looks, and was paired with white heels, just like on the runway.
The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in Gucci
In 2013, Beyoncé has already begun to wear straight from the runway looks on stage. One of her most stylish outfits was her black-and-white Gucci suit, with a sparkling top and cute red heels. Completing the look with a hat, Beyoncé rocked a great outfit that many other pop stars would have had trouble getting away with on stage.
2013 V Festival
Another UK festival gave us one of Beyoncé’s best stage outfits, the green Emilio Pucci dress she wore in 2013 for V Festival. Her fringed green dress was a perfect fit for her dancing and the silver, black and green leopard print helped create and unforgettable look.
The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour White Leotard
A great outfit Beyoncé wore during The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, her white leotard with sheer panels is a daring look, but still tasteful. The outfit is pulled together in a great way by the fringe detailing at the shoulders. Perfect for dancing, the look mixed high fashion with functionality.
2011 Good Morning America Performance
Definitely one of Beyoncé’s best stage outfits, her crochet mini dress worn for the 2011 “Good Morning America” performance was stunning.

2011 Glastonbury Festival
Another iconic look, Beyoncé’s golden blazer worn at the Glastonbury Festival in 2011 showed off her more dramatic side. The singer paired it with black short shorts for a perfect summer festival ensemble. With sparkling accessories and big hair, Queen Bey looked fantastic at the UK festival.
2008 Today Performance
One of Beyoncé’s best stage outfits, the black catsuit worn for the “Today” performance in 2008 showed her wild side. Accessorized with a black belt, boots and gloves, the outfit was pure Catwoman, but the singer gave the look her own spin with a sleek pompadour.
2005 Academy Awards Performance
Invited to perform on three of the five Best Original Song nominees at the 2005 Oscars, Beyoncé pulled off three distinct looks, but the best one was for her final performance of “Learn to Be Lonely” from “The Phantom of the Opera”.
