See the 21 Times Beyonce Rocked the Bodysuit on Stage
For someone whose style is impressively dynamic, Beyoncé is surprisingly consistent when it comes to her on-stage wardrobe. Her love of bodysuits rings as true as Gwen Stefani and her fishnets, Taylor Swift and her crop tops, and J.Lo and, well, anything with cut-outs. And clearly, Queen Bey knows a good one-piece when she sees one, because she wears her bodysuits well. So well, in fact, we found and compiled her best bodysuit-wearing moments (yes, that is a thing), just ahead of her 2017 Grammys performance—which will no doubt be as epic as her pregnancy announcement
A Victorian-inspired red latex bodysuit? Yes, such a thing exists.
The bodysuit version of her famous Lemonade dress.
Because when Bey calls you into formation, you pay attention.
White Ruffles + Lace
For "The Formation World Tour," Queen Bey showed off her toned, mile-long legs in an array of long-sleeved bodysuits that wowed. For "Formation," she sported a custom white Balmain bodysuit, complete with French lace and silk ruffle embellishment that signaled not the #BalmainArmy, but the Beyoncé army. Over-the-knee soft gray boots and windswept hair completed the look.
While singing barefoot in water, Bey donned a crystal-embellished nude bodysuit that had a certain Britney Spears Toxic vibe.
Red + White
The fierce Gucci red and white number with puffy sleeves was bold and powerful (like Bey herself).
Laser Cut-Outs + Illusion Neckline
Easily one of her fiercest looks, Queen Bey slayed the stage at the 2013 Super Bowl halftime performance in a laser cut-out bodysuit with an illusion plunging neckline.
Black Leather + Sheer
The star is fierce in every way, but every so often, she reveals a softer side. At the 2013 Chime for Change concert, she tempered the toughness of a black leather one-piece with sheer shirred sleeves and yoke.
Delicate White Lace
Beyonce kept the pristine element of her white lace bodysuit intact by styling it with neutrals (as opposed to black, which can prove to be harsh in contrast).
A Kaleidoscope of Prints and Color
Queen Bey let her colorful printed Versace bodysuit bask in the spotlight by styling it with muted extras. The takeaway: Don't draw attention from a statement-making one-piece with distracting pairings (a sweeping pair of wide-leg pants would be perfect for a night out).
Zippers + Cut-Outs
This contraption of a one-piece is quite intimidating, with its zip-front detail, garter belt, and risqué cut-outs, but Beyonce made it (somewhat) approachable with a slouchy black hoodie.
Who knew the (non)color could be so glam? Beyonce's white bodysuit was treated with sharp shoulders, fringe finishes, plenty of intricate beadwork, and an embellished belt.
Subtle Shine + Texture
Not your ordinary black bodysuit—Bey slipped into a textured one-piece, carrying the embellishment over to her baseball cap.

Beyonce brought the cold-shoulder trend to the stage, delivering a hot performance during her 2013 The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in a cut-out white bodysuit with a peplum belt.
Despite its intricate embroidery, the colors were neutral enough to warrant playful accessories, like bejeweled fishnets and patent red thigh-highs.
Pretty in Pink
Beyonce hardened up the sweet shade with a bodysuit treated with utilitarian-inspired pockets, sleek straps, and no-nonsense fixtures.
A subtly textured bodysuit can be just as impactful as a statement-making one. Beyonce made hers stand out with embellished tights and sexy patent black thigh-high boots.
Drama, allure, romance—this black lace bodysuit with exaggerated lantern sleeves is the stuff of dreams. We'd style it anything and everything.
An Homage to Harden
Sports fanatic Beyonce sported a glittery one-piece version of basketball player James Harden's jersey on stage.
A lesson to learn from Beyonce: Don't apologize for piling on the shine. She accented her brilliant silver bodysuit with shiny black patent add-ons.
