Beyoncé is truly a queen, but did you know she’s been the queen of Halloween costumes for years? The recording artist loves sharing her spooky season looks and she (almost) always nails them.
Beyoncé has a history of dabbling in different styles and fashions and has even created her own alter ego, so it’s no surprise she slays Halloween too.
As Beyoncé’s career has progressed and her style has evolved, so have her Halloween costumes. She’s made a transition from basic or even borderline-store-bought costumes to elaborate family tableaus honoring historical and artistic icons.
Beyoncé’s most iconic Halloween looks from the past decade show how her style has evolved.
