Style Evolution: Beyoncé’s Fashion Through The Years [Photos]

Beyoncé is known for being a big deal. Whether she’s ahead of the sneaker wedge trend, snapping pics in Civil clothing or campaigning for H&M, Baddie Bey has cosigned some of the biggest and dopest movements subsequently causing their net worth sky rocket. However, has she always been such a fashion icon?

Unfortunately, (BeyHive, get in attack mode) no. Mrs. Carter used to hit many fashion blunders (um, those shredded denim skirts), but in her defense, we never loved her any less. Let’s just say the former member of Destiny’s Child has made exceptional strides in her taste.

The new mommy has naturally evolved, donning luxe labels that flatter her hip-licious frame. Just like her good friend and former DC member Kelly Rowland, when she hits and red carpet fashion bloggers and journos are ready to write every detail. Micing a look between class and boss, the modern-day feminist new sets trends in whatever she throws on.

As Bey continues takes 2013 with her Mrs. World Carter tour and myriad of mag covers, Vixen heads down memory lane with a look at some of her fashion cues –past and present.
