Unless you have been living under a rock for the last decade, you are well aware of the fact that Beyonce has conquered the world, and her popularity continues to grow with each passing year. As a performer, Beyonce is regarded as one of the best live shows on the planet, and her concerts continually sellout the world’s largest music venues. She has even had the incredible distinction of performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which is one of music’s most coveted slots. With the release of each album, radio stations race to play virtually every song off of the album, and it’s nearly impossible to go anywhere without hearing the latest from the living legend.
As a role model, she has been a huge source of inspiration for people all around the world. She has proven to be someone that any mother would want their daughter to admire, and she holds herself to a standard that makes her one of the most respected women of her generation. She’s been in one of the entertainment industries most high-profile marriages for quite some time, and she’s also the mother of one child. For as down to earth as she is, let’s get one thing straight; Beyonce is unbelievably gorgeous.
As one of the most beautiful women in the entertainment industry, Beyonce has regularly been featured as the face of cosmetic lines, as well as fashion lines. Any magazine worth noting has featured the beauty, and she’s a proven commodity. It seems that everything she touches turns to gold, and she’s in a league of her own at this point. So, while you find new ways to waste time on the internet, allow me to present to you these photos of Beyonce that are sure to leave you begging for more.
15. Sasha Is Still Fierce
For someone that has been in the media spotlight for a number of years now, Beyonce has shown an incredibly ability to constantly change her look without sacrificing a single ounce of her appeal. Whether she is making an appearance at an awards show or doing a high-profile shoot for a magazine, Beyonce has maintained a standard of beauty that is truly remarkable. The dress that she wears in this photo may appear to be a bit unconventional, but that doesn’t stop Beyonce from nailing the look, and making sure viewers are coming back to see more
The talented performer gives off an incredibly sensual stare in the photo, luring in men everywhere. She has an exceptional modeling talent, and she has compiled an impressive portfolio. Beyonce has shown virtually no signs of ageing, so I am incredibly confident that we will be seeing a lot more shoots like this in the future.
14. As Sultry As They Come
At one point, Destiny’s Child was one of the biggest acts in the music industry, and they had more than enough star power to generate incredible sales and rave reviews. When the group disbanded, each member pursued solo ventures that couldn’t have gone anymore different. It was interesting to see exactly how the careers of these young women would play out, and it was during this time that Beyonce solidified herself as an unstoppable force.
The other members of the group found varying levels of success in their solo careers, but they all paled in comparison to what Beyonce continues to accomplish in her professional life. Even with an increase in illegal downloads and waning record sales, Beyonce continues to be one of the few stars in the music industry that can generate incredible album sales. Just last year, Beyonce released her album Lemonade, which has gone on to sell over 1 million copies in the United States alone.
13. At Home On Stage
If you need a little extra proof that this photo is obnoxiously hot, just take a look at the young lady in the lower left of the photo. As I mentioned earlier in the article, Beyonce has garnered a reputation as one of the best stage performers in the music industry, and fans around the world but tickets in droves to feast their eyes on the legend. Much like her modeling career, Beyonce has utilized an impressive amount of different looks over the years in her stage shows, and finding one that was appropriate for this piece was a bit difficult.
What I love about this outfit is that it accentuates her natural curves, and does a fantastic job with being incredibly sexy without being super revealing. She has a natural appeal to her, and doesn’t have to resort to skimpy outfits that leave little to the imagination. Now, I said she doesn’t need these outfits, but she definitely utilizes them. Some of her outfits are pretty revealing and I for one am not complaining.
12. Red,White, and Beyonce
Back in 2008, Beyonce had already released her first three solo albums, and was past the point of searching for acceptance as a solo artist. The performer also had a few films under her belt, which helped show off her diverse set of skills. That year, Beyonce would star in the film Cadillac Records along with some other talented performers. The film received some positive reviews, though it left a lot to be desired in regards to its box office haul. Nevertheless, the film was another opportunity for Beyonce to make waves in the film industry, as well as mix things up from being a musician.
Set in 1950s America, the fashion was true to its era, and Beyonce’s look in the film gave was flawless. Cadillac Records was the only film that Beyonce appeared in that year, and she made the most of her opportunity. With an album released that same year, Beyonce made numerous appearances at awards shows and events that year, and she absolutely owned each event she went to.
11. Short Hair, Don’t Care
Now, while I do tend to have a preference for girls with longer hair, I must say that Beyonce’s short hair in the photo works perfectly for the singer, and I absolutely love the look. There was quite the buzz in the media when she chopped off her locks, and people just couldn’t get enough of the new look. Her hair was pretty short in Cadillac Records, but it was done in the style of the era, and wasn’t the much more drastic style that we see pictured here.
One of the biggest reasons that Beyonce is able to pull off all of these diverse looks is her unending confidence in whatever she has on. Regardless of hair, makeup, or dress, Beyonce owns every bit of fashion that she tries her hand in, and this look is a perfect example of this. Most men are less inclined to care about hairstyle or fashion, but even they will admit that Beyonce owns it.
10. Beyonce The Beauty
2016 was an incredibly odd year in the entertainment industry. Many of the movies and albums released that year really seemed to disappoint, and much of the year was spent complaining about the year itself on the internet. Leave it to Beyonce to completely take over the world by dropping an album with no announcement needed. Social media was set ablaze as millions of people began streaming the album the second it was available, and it seemed to be universally loved by all.
Critics praised the album, and when it was available for purchase, Lemonade absolutely dominated. Beyonce has an incredible ability to generate a whirlwind of buzz with nearly everything she does, and Lemonade may have been one of her biggest in recent memory. Now, Beyonce had hinted at the album prior to its official release, but the way she just went ahead and dropped it was a stroke of genius.
9. Electric In Yellow
While her album Lemonade had changed the game on album releases in 2016, we can look at her self-titled release in 2013 to see just how the singer began to mix things up on her future releases. That album, much like Lemonade, was releases with no announcement or press, and was also released with a video album as well. To truly understand the impact of this, you would have to take a look at how albums are released now. Many performers are slowly electing to release albums and mixtapes with little or no warning, and are also releasing albums on Fridays, which was almost unheard of before Beyonce did it.
Having caused a drastic shift in the music industry, Beyonce unleashed an incredible tour in support of the record, and made her way across the globe, wowing audiences everywhere. For her work on the record, Beyonce was nominated for an incredible amount of awards, and took home some impressive hardware that year. The music industry hasn’t been the same since.
8. Queen Of The World
In recent years, Beyonce’s work on film has been relegated to doing video albums to coincide with the release of her new music. It gives a new edge to the album, and is also used to boost sales too. Her last official film appearance was back in 2013 when she voiced the character Queen Tara in the animated feature Epic. As a performer who likes to put her diverse skills in display, it was really interesting seeing the film, and focusing in on what she had to offer.
I think she did an excellent job, though I do prefer her in normal films. Beyonce is incredibly beautiful, so I certainly prefer seeing her in films as opposed to hearing her. In this photo here, Beyonce has a very simple look, yet she makes it look as fierce as possible. It’s for reasons like this that I prefer seeing her on film. She’s just too beautiful to ignore, and the world just can’t get enough.
7. Gorgeous In Orange
Having been born in Texas, it is only fitting that Beyonce is a fan of the Texas Longhorns. Beyonce has utilized several shades of orange in her fashion arsenal, and quite frankly, I love it. I’m no Longhorns fan, but I can appreciate a woman who has the ability to rock a pretty odd color at a major event. Leave it to Beyonce to turn heads and captivate everyone’s attention in an orange dress that most women wouldn’t have the nerve to even try on. She’s just that confident in herself, and it shows.
Then again, back in her Destiny’s Child days, she did wear some pretty ridiculous stuff. I get it; it was a time and place when bleached hair and puka shells were a legitimate look on men. Their biggest album came out in 1999, which was the same year that The Matrix changed action movies forever. What a time it was to be alive.
6. A Natural Beauty
More often than not, I have found myself more drawn to modeling photos that are subtle in both look and background. I appreciate the artistry that goes into exotic looks and locations, but there is something about a stripped-down shoot that really does the trick for me. In this photo, we see Beyonce in a more bare state, and her infectious smile is both subtle and stunning. Of all the looks that she has flashed in her modeling career, this one is the most natural, and the most beautiful.
As one of the world’s most influential women, it’s refreshing to see Beyonce taking photos like this. Yes, her ability to work with different looks is incredible, but showing young women that being beautiful while just being yourself send a pretty powerful message. Leave it to Beyonce to continue to do things her way, and to continue to be an incredible role model.
5. A Deeper Red
Beyonce’s utilization of a darker shade of red for her lipstick is gorgeous here, but it is her dress in the photo that really captured my attention. Beyonce has starred in a number of films, and out of the bunch, Dreamgirls is probably my favorite. Now, I can still find plenty of laughs in Goldmember, but Dreamgirls is a fantastic film that featured some incredible performances. Among the talent in the movie, Beyonce was the most beautiful, and did an incredible in delivering a stellar performance.
Prior to its release, there was a ton of buzz around the film, and for good reason. The movie was fantastic, and movie critics gave the film some positive reviews. By the end of its theatrical run, Dreamgirls had hauled in 154 million dollars, and received an amazing amount of awards nominations. If you haven’t seen the film, do yourself a favor, and give it a watch.
4. Dangerously In Love
As the most popular member of Destiny’s Child, it seemed that Beyonce was destined to be more successful than the other women who had helped the group achieve incredible popularity. The other members of the group were very talented as well, but Beyonce just has a spark about her that very few people on the planet possess. In 2003, Beyonce was everywhere as she got ready to release her first solo album, and the world had no idea that she was about to take over.
Dangerously in Love made its way onto shelves during the summer, and it couldn’t have gone any better for Beyonce. Though the following year would see her release another album with Destiny’s Child, she had successfully shed the image of being in a group, and gained the reputation of being a solo star. Dangerously in Love would go on to sell over 5 million copies in the United States, making it a tremendous success.
3. Confidence In Contrast
2016 saw the release of the hit film Suicide Squad, and comic book fans went absolutely nuts when Harley Quinn briefly flashed her classic costume. The black and red suit is iconic in the comic world, but Beyonce mastered the contrast look long before Harley hit the big screen. Sure, Harvey Dent beat her to the punch, but that is another story for another day. In this photo, Beyonce looks absolutely stunning, and her outfit is gorgeous. I especially love that her hair is flowing in the picture.
The dress itself has a rather deep cut down the middle that is beautifully accented by the black band along her waist. Much like a few other photos of Beyonce that I love, subtlety is what truly shines in this photo, making it simple and beautiful. While the bracelet in the photo is much gaudier than the dress, the photographer was able to capture a photo that doesn’t allow the bracelet to take away from the dress, making the shot itself quite breathtaking.
2. Awards Galore
One of the most incredible aspects of Beyonce’s illustrious career is the sheer amount of awards that the beauty has won over the years. While there are a number of people out there who don’t consider some of these awards as a true measure of an artist’s talents, you would have to be crazy to think that Beyonce’s nominations and wins are based on anything less than her abilities. To truly understand how decorated she is, we would have to take a look at the numbers.
In total, Beyonce has been nominated for a staggering 62 Grammy Awards, and has had the distinction of winning 20 of them. The Grammy Awards are considered the pinnacle of music awards, and Beyonce’s wins and nomination are among the most all-time. The beauty has also received 26 Billboard Music Award nominations, as well as 46 BET Awards. Regardless of how you feel about these types of awards, you have to give credit where credit is due.
1. Too Hot To Handle
Beyonce has had one of the greatest music careers of all-time, and her 2016 release Lemonade further cemented her as quite possibly the greatest talent of her generation. She has released quality material that has garnered massive sales on a regular basis, and her career has yet to hit a point where it has stalled or began to fade. Some people are able to ride out a hit or two for years, but to pump out incredible music at this rate is almost unheard of in the modern music industry.
Though time continues to march on, Beyonce remains as beautiful as ever, and men everywhere are just as infatuated now as they were when she first became a household name. She has been happily married for quite some time now, and she just announced that she’s currently pregnant again. Their love shows no signs of slowing down, and that is a beautiful thing. Hate to break it to you all, but photos like this are as close as you will ever get to the real thing.
