After kicking off her highly anticipated Renaissance World Tour in Stockholm, Sweden last Wednesday, Beyoncé took the stage in Brussels, Belgium continuing her parade of high-fashion, disco-ready looks.
On Sunday evening, the most awarded artist in Grammy history serenaded the crowd wearing an ivory silk Valentino gown covered in shimmering silver crystal rhinestones, designed especially for her by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli. Featuring a cowl neckline, which exposed a matching plunging bra-shaped under-layer, the form-fitting creation included a thigh-high slit and a cascading train.
The superstar teamed her show-stopping ensemble with barely-there neutral fishnet stockings, metallic silver pumps and matching silver shining opera gloves, complete with metallic gold nails encrusted on each finger, styled by Shiona Turini.
As a Tiffany & Co. brand ambassador, Beyoncé added an extra dose of glamour with a custom necklace from the heritage jeweler, embellished with crystals.
The songstress wore her signature buoyant curls and matched her look with glittering silver eyeshadow.
It’s only the second stop of a string of 57 performances, but Beyoncé has already rocked looks from Alexander McQueen, Loewe, David Koma, Courrèges, Balmain, Casey Cadwallader’s Mugler and Valentino — each one more dazzling than the next.
Following her performances in Stockholm and Brussles, Beyoncé will travel across Europe, Canada and North America, before concluding the tour on September 27 at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.
The 2023 Renaissance World Tour marks Beyoncé’s first tour since 2018’s On the Run II alongside Jay-Z, which celebrated their collaborative record Everything Is Love. Before this, her last solo headlining tour was the Formation World Tour, which took place in 2016 with music from her beloved album Lemonade.
Beyoncé dropped Renaissance — her first solo album in six years — on July 29 with 16-tracks chock full of joyful and electrifying house music, paying homage to disco and queer club culture which became the soundtrack of the summer.
