Beyoncé shines the spotlight on Black fashion designers with a Juneteenth concert tribute, showcasing stunning looks.
During her Amsterdam concert on her world tour for “Renaissance,” Beyoncé paid homage to Juneteenth, a holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the US. She exclusively wore outfits created by Black designers, including Ferragamo’s Maximilian Davis.
Davis crafted a beautiful red, bead- and crystal-embroidered dress for Beyoncé, as well as a silver lamé jersey draped mini dress paired with thigh-high boots. The singer expressed her honor in collaborating with Davis and highlighted the importance of the creative process.
Beyoncé also dazzled the audience with a futuristic, silver-armored bodysuit designed by Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing. The artist and designer previously collaborated on a Renaissance Couture line, consisting of 16 looks to match each track on Beyoncé’s album. Rousteing praised Beyoncé’s Juneteenth tribute and applauded her visionary journey.
Donning a custom-made Balmain bodysuit, featuring alternating patches of yellow and black, Beyoncé embraced her queen bee persona. The outfit, along with a saucer-shaped hat, symbolized celebration and resilience in the face of challenges. Rousteing acknowledged the collective effort for a better future and expressed his love and gratitude.
Beyoncé continued to stun in a metallic “shattered glass” catsuit by LaQuan Smith during her Renaissance show. She completed the look with a glittering silver coat inspired by Rousteing’s Balmain collection, while riding a disco-mirrored horse statue on stage. Smith praised the epic realization of his design and felt honored to have Beyoncé wear it.
In addition to showcasing other remarkable ensembles, Beyoncé unveiled a bubble gum pink halter dress from her Ivy Park clothing line’s upcoming swim collection. Drawing inspiration from Studio 54 and the disco era, she blended a modern twist with Ivy Park’s signature neon. Debuting this look on Juneteenth added a significant layer of pride for the singer.
Beyoncé expressed her pride in being among the talented Black designers featured in the Juneteenth concert tribute, recognizing the importance of celebrating their contributions.
