It really should cost a billion to look this good.
One of this year’s most-anticipated and high fashion-filled concert movies, Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé, had its star-studded premiere in Los Angeles on November 25 and the evening was giving shimmery opulence and high drama.
As the guest of honour, Beyoncé shone in a custom strapless Versace dress constructed with the brand’s signature chainmail design. With its statement neckline and matching metallic gloves, the dress nodded to many of the couture outfits the singer wore throughout the Renaissance Tour’s five-month run. To finish off her futuristic premiere outfit, Bey sported a straight, hip-length platinum blonde hairdo and soft glam makeup.
In addition to the droves of stars who came out for the exciting occasion, Beyoncé’s former Destiny’s Child group members Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett all made a special appearance to support their (a moment that Beyoncé’s mom Tina Knowles shared in a sweet Instagram post). And, of course, each of the girls followed the unofficial theme of the evening with their head-turning looks.
In a subtle nod to Madonna, whom Beyoncé has cited as her inspiration on numerous occasions, Rowland donned a silver mermaid-style dress with an accented cone bra from Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall 2023 couture collection. She complimented the dazzling dress with matching metallic heels and blindingly sparkly jewels.
Taking a more dramatic approach, the rest of the Destiny’s Child ladies opted for sleek, all-black looks. Williams embraced the no-pants trend by wearing a bodysuit with an exaggerated collar and a sheer skirt fitted with a tulle train by Bishme Cromartie. Roberson went for an asymmetrical look in a black velvet gown with a diamond-shaped cutout detail. Lastly, Luckett wore a black long-sleeved leather gown, accessorizing with a clutch and heels in Bey’s signature silver.
After the hundreds of custom designer looks that Queen Bey sported throughout the Renaissance tour, it’s no surprise that some of the evening’s A-list attendees wanted to pay homage to Beyoncé’s iconic on-stage presence with their premiere outfits.
Singer Victoria Monét did just that with a bright red hooded custom Theophilio ensemble, which featured a flowing train and matching mesh red opera gloves. This outfit emulated a hooded crimson mini-dress by Carolina Herrera that Beyoncé wore during the Hamburg, Germany stop of the tour.
Other special chrome carpet guests, such as the Alien Superstar themself, made references to more unforgettable moments of the tour.
In addition to showcasing Bey’s high-energy, superstar-level performances (not to mention tour looks), Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé delivers intimate, behind-the-scenes details on the making of the tour. Plus, the movie dives into Bey’s own personal journey of putting the world tour together, which reportedly helped her transform from a self-proclaimed “people pleaser” to the bona fide superstar she is today.
