Beyoncé is "back by popular demand" and she brought her fashion game with her. 

The songstress officially launched her Formation World Tour Wednesday night with a handful of looks so mesmerizing, they immediately silenced the "Becky" chatter and refocused the world's eyes back on Queen Bey. 

Look after look, the fashionista punched on stage in lace, ruffles, patterns, sequins and latex in a serious spectacle of style. Though she stayed true to the traditional bodysuits that she's become famous for, the one pieces were spiced up with many of the fashion influences debuted in her new visual album Lemonade. Victorian Louisiana? Check. African tribalism? Check. Fierce Beyoncé? Check. 

Here's an up close-and-personal look at every ensemble, the designers behind them and the trends the will inevitably launch:

She launched the show with none other than "Formation," clad in a Victorian-inspired black crystal buster with puff sleeves, lace and leather gloves and a broad brim hat all designed by DSquared2—the same men behind her Super Bowl 50 look. 

Underneath, she sported a lace bodysuit with crystal mesh on the legs. Never one to go without heels, Beyoncé completed the opening look with ruffled and jeweled black ankle boots. It was the beginning of a trend as she would go on to wear all different versions of boots, from knee-high tiger printed suede to red latex.

In homage to one of Bey's musical idols Michael Jackson, the star sported a black collared military-inspired bodysuit adorned with gold buttons and embellishments similar to her now infamous look from Super Bowl 50. 

As for shoes, Beyoncé opted for a pair of knee-high suede boots covered in tiger print because why not add an extra dose of fierceness? 


The songstress didn't just stick to shades of black with alternating embellishments. She later turned up the heat in what looks like a red-hot latex bodysuit with puffed sleeves, a ruffled scoop neckline and a pair of matching knee-high latex boots.

No tour would be complete without custom Balmain. The star graced the stage in a white bodysuit made of embroidered French lace with pearls, stones and silk ruffles designed by the famous fashion house. 

Those ruffles didn't sit still for long, either. Beyoncé made the whole outfit move as she danced her way through her 2011 hit "Countdown."

Ring the alarm because this look is on fire! The Grammy winner later stepped out in a red and white patterned and belted one piece with ruffles all over the top half as she and her gals performed a vigorous routine to her early hit "Ring the Alarm."


Toward the end of her show, Bey and her dancers performed in water to the tune of one of her Lemonade tracks, "Freedom." For the song, she sparkled in a champagne-colored bodysuit covered in crystals, but remained barefoot as she stomped around in the stream.
