Style evolution: BeyoncéBeyoncé, who was crowned "Hottest Woman of the 21st Century" by GQ magazine, is also one of the most powerful celebrities. The singer (she has released four solo albums) is also an actress, producer and entrepreneur (clothing and perfume). The American star, who was in the spotlight this week for her performance of the national anthem at the swearing-in ceremony of US president Barack Obama, is a young mother whose curves make her the envy of many women. Here is Beyoncé's unique style evolution.
At just 19, Beyoncé already had all the makings of a diva: a great voice, a lovely figure and sculptural poise. Thanks to her curves - which she was already confident about - she was already regarded as one the most beautiful women on Earth. However, she should have avoided this kitschy head to toe purple number for a Destiny's Child concert in Madison Square Garden (New York). (December 19, 2000)
Even if Beyoncé was ahead of the trend when it came to dip-dye hair color, she seems to have misplaced her hairdresser's number. Her curly hair usually really suits her but here it doesn't work with the earrings. Luckily, her outfit draws attention to her body. She wore this outfit to the 'Austin Powers' première in Los Angeles. (July 22, 2002)
The American singer looks sculptural in this very low-cut dress by Roberto Cavalli. For the 47th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, Beyoncé looked perfect and her sophisticated hairstyle flattered her face. (February 13, 2012)
For the 'Dreamgirls' première in New York, Beyoncé looked gorgeous in this long Elie Saab dress. Everything about the R 'n' B star looks perfect, from her makeup and hair to her outfit and her accessories. (December 4, 2006)
It doesn't take much to look glamorous with those curves. For the annual Gotham Magazine party in New York, Beyoncé wore a simple long black roll neck dress and matching earrings. A simple outfit that flattered her figure. (November 18, 2008)
A regular woman?
Even while out shopping in Paris, the American singer didn't make a single style mistake. A short leather jacket, a T-shirt with an ethnic print with a matching necklace, a mini skirt and multicolored sandals: Beyoncé looked great! (May 4, 2009)
It might look like a fashion mistake but it's just a costume for the Halloween party at The Darby restaurant in New York. And she still manages to pull it off: from the two-tone hair and the jacket to the matching shoes. (October 31, 2011)
Beyoncé didn't just dazzle guests at Barack Obama's Inauguration party with her voice (she was chosen to sing the national anthem) but also with her Emilio Pucci dress. The sexiest woman on the planet has played her cards right over the years and become one of the most powerful celebrities in various fields including fashion. (January 21, 2013)
