Beyoncé Fashion – 2013 Super Bowl, Inauguration + The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour

best super bowl halftime shows in history

If we had to sum up the first few weeks of 2013 in one word, it would be Beyoncé. Between the Presidential Inauguration and the Super Bowl halftime show, the singer is definitely taking the world by storm — and looking super chic doing it! Here are our fav Beyoncé fashion moments of 2013.

The 2013 Presidential Inauguration is definitely one of those events that calls for sophistication and glamour, and Beyoncé pulled out all the stops. While she sang the National Anthem, she wore a stunning black Pucci dress with all-over beading and emerald Lorraine Schwartz earrings.

And did you see how chic she and Jay-Z looked walking into the event together? We’re loving his sharp Tom Ford charcoal grey suit and her super glam Christian Dior floor-length coat.

Beyoncé may have literally brought the house down last night at Super Bowl XLVII. Whether or not she caused the massive blackout at the New Orleans Superdome, we were crazy in love with everything about her Super Bowl Halftime Show. That includes Mrs. Carter’s leather and lace corset. A lot of people were buzzing that she would go with a Givenchy Couture look, but we were so happy to hear a little-known designer from NYC created this killer outfit.

Designer Rubin Singer said it took 14 people and 200+ hours of work to create Beyoncé’s black corset, which included a Chantilly lace flounce skirt and armor-esque hand-stitched leather. Talk about fierce! Singer also created the looks that Destiny’s Child singers Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams rocked during the show. The Baltimore Ravens may have won the 2013 Super Bowl, but the halftime show was definitely the highlight of our night!

Beyoncé must have sensed that the world can’t get enough, because a few minutes after the halftime show, she announced her 2013 world tour, The Mrs. Carter Show. We’re super psyched to see what gorgeous outfits Bey wears on the world stage, and can hardly wait to grab our tickets for the North American leg of the tour. Can’t wait til spring to get your Beyoncé fix? Here’s The Mrs. Carter Show official promo video to hold you over until then:

And as if Beyoncé hasn’t had enough on her plate, she also fit in time to produce a documentary! We can’t wait to check out her HBO doc, Life Is But A Dream, when it premieres on February 16. (We’re especially excited to see home video footage of Beyoncé as a kid!)

Solange Knowles – Fashion Rebel with A Colorful Streak

Beyoncé Knowles may be a fashion household name, but her little sister Solange has been gaining a style following of her own lately. With her penchant for bright colors, a funky retro vibe and an undeniable adventurous streak, Solange is quickly becoming one of our fave fashion heroes.

Celebrity street style 2012 trends

We can’t think of many celebs who pull of street style as effortlessly as Solange does. Whether she’s hanging with her son, Daniel Julez Smith, Jr., or taking a stroll in NYC, she always steps out in style. We love how she put a fresh spin on office wear classics by pairing these high-waisted pleated pants with a vintage fitted jacket. But what made the look was the vibrant orange blouse, which is fitting, given that no Solange outfit is complete without a quirky pop of color.

Even though Solange’s street style has us smitten, Beyoncé’s little sister can definitely work the Red Carpet. We’re digging the daring print and asymmetrical hems on this artsy Vera Wang gown she wore in Spring 2012. And did we mention her gorgeous, bright pink lip color?

Whether it’s neon lipstick or a bold designer dress, Solange’s daredevil demeanor shines most when she turns up the color dial. We’ve spotted Solange in a lot of yellow lately, but her custom Rachel Roy dress from the 2012 Met Gala definitely took her color fetish to the next level. The gorgeous peplum waist and modern, architectural lines on this dress were the perfect, classic canvas for Solange’s spunky signature hue.

Solange is also known for picking funky, unconventional patterns like these florals, which remind us of the standout pieces from the Spring 2012 Louis Vuitton collection. (Beyoncé has also been embracing flower prints. Did you see her rocking those Hawaiian print pants from Stella McCartney’s 2012 Resort Wear Collection?)

One aspect of Solange’s style that really sets her apart from the pack is her fondness for fabulous accessories, whether it be a daring hairstyle, vintage Chanel, unconventional nails or, of course, bold necklaces, rings, and bracelets. We love Solange’s affinity for pairing chunky bracelets with everything from designer evening gowns to vintage button-down blouses. We can see our Luxe fans looking just as gorgeous in their Indian bangles or collar necklaces!
