Beyoncé and JAY-Z‘s On The Run II tour was a sight to behold. The high-power entertainment couple trailed through Europe and North America producing visually-stunning performances filled with personal moments and endless hits. For her second co-headlining tour, Beyoncé took her costumes to the next level recruiting custom designs from Mugler, Vivienne Westwood and Versace. In addition to her signature bodysuits and thigh-high boots, stylist Marni Senofante incorporated hats and masks to truly dazzle the crowd.
We’ve rounded up our favorite style moments from the unforgettable OTR II tour. Read on below and let us know your top picks.
Olivier Rousteing was recruited to create an iridescent costume complete with leggy boots and a windbreaker to match. The two recently collaborated on a capsule inspired by her Coachella 2018 performance where she sported a bejeweled hoodie with custom graphics. This look set the standard for the rest to come.
Burberry‘s comeback is now official thanks to Queen Bey. The luxury English label crafted a vintage check bodysuit with a cropped jacket to pair. Completing the outfit is a pair of matching sunnies and gloves.
Beyoncé stripped down her Givenchy gown into a form-fitting bodysuit for her joint numbers with JAY-Z. The long-sleeved garment is covered in star-like jewels that glimmer when hit with the light. The bow on the front says “Mrs. Carter” but the V-cut is more “Sasha Fierce.”
For the peak of her two-hour set, Beyoncé sported a new design from Dapper Dan x Gucci’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection. Her signature hip-cut shorts are covered with the “GG” zippered overcoat which also complements her boots. To fully transform into Bonnie (of Bonnie & Clyde) she threw on Gucci’s FW18 balaclava mask which somehow didn’t affect her vocals.
As the OTR II tour progressed, Beyoncé’s looks became more extravagant. She kicked off the series sporting a sleek black costume with a matching Mugler hat designed by creative director Casey Cadwallader. For the latter dates, Cadwallader created a stunning silvery suit with the same hat showcasing the evolution of the look.
Off-White™’s Spring/Summer 2019 neon gown was snatched straight off of the runway and delivered to Beyoncé for the last dates of her tour. The “Track and Field”-inspired garment has a T-shirt top that merges into a ruffled, neon yellow ball gown. This item was the perfect option for her ballad segment.
Versace’s ubiquitous baroque style has returned to the forefront of fashion thanks to Donatella. The gold, white and black patterning is perfect for the stage and looks even better on Beyoncé when backed by similarly-styled dancers. Though she was outfitted in a full-length cape and waist-cinching belt, she still delivered, as always, the performance of a lifetime.
Photographer Raven Varona caught the majesty of Vivienne Westwood’s cascading bodysuit at the right moment. It is clear that a lot of detail was paid to the off-the-shoulder catsuit which was accented with a flowing train. The asymmetrical sunglasses and the “B” ring are some of our favorite accessories from the tour.
