Beyonce- Dangerously in Love Beyonce- Dangerously in Love

10 Beyoncé 'Dangerously in Love' Fashion Moments

Beyonce's "Dangerously in Love" album not only marked musical freedom in 2013, but it provided us a chance to explore her personal style. After years of wearing matching costumes in Destiny's Child, the solo star made fashion choices that would ultimately go down in pop music history. With each performance, music video or red carpet appearance came a head turning ensemble from the King herself. Today, as we celebrate its 10 year anniversary, we highlight Beyonce's ten most "dangerous" looks.

"Crazy in Love"

If Beyonce's debut solo single was a hit, the music video made it a monster hit. That image of Beyonce stomping down the street in denim shorts, white tank and red pumps is etch-a-sketched in our minds forever.

"Baby Boy"

Beyonce went from the streets to the sandy beaches for the second Dangerously in Love single. She served up exotic, Middle Eastern-inspired fashion and equally sexy dance moves. King Bey did "all gold everything" years before Trinidad James.

"Me, Myself and I"

For her first girl anthem, Mrs. Carter traded in the glitz and glamour for an all black ensemble that still served up fierceness. Can you count how many times she whipped that straight hair for the camera?

Like the song title, her costumes for this video left little to the imagination. Garter belts, lingerie and knee highs had everyone, including co-star Usher, lusting after the sexy star.

We have one word for Beyonce's 2003 VMA mash-up of "Crazy in Love" and "Baby Boy": HAIR. Her shorts were barely there and the "Uh-Oh" dance made its live debut, but nothing could stop her mane from taking center stage.

Tinashe Resurfaces With Exciting Message: "I'm Back And Better"

Tinashe fans rejoice! After a hiatus, the Joyride artist resurfaced on Instagram Saturday (Sept. 28), in a brief video expressing that she's “back and better.”

After a tumultuous relationship with her label RCA, the singer-songwriter broke ties with the company. Since then, she's been hibernating in her “cave,” as she puts it.

"Creatively, I just feel like I needed to go through what I went through in order to be the person that I am today and to get back to my roots," she explained. "You pretty much put your heart and soul and emotions into all these songs and then you put them out there for the world to judge and tear down and pick apart. It's terrifying and it can really mess with your head."

A post shared by Nashe if you’re nasty (@tinashenow) on Sep 28, 2019 at 11:04am PDT

In an interview with VIBE, Tinashe expressed how important it is for her to stay true to herself and artistry. “It’s not even necessarily speaking up but coming to your own conclusions yourself and owning your own instincts and trusting in yourself and creative power,” she said. “I think that’s something that is always important to continue to maintain. It’s easy for that sometimes to get derailed, and it’s important to come back to that.”

During her recent statement, she broke down the importance of art and how it should be expressed through individuality and free expression, sans any boxes or limitations. Making people happy through her music is the goal.

"Music and art are supposed to be these wonderful beautiful things that bring people joy and happiness, and that's really why I started making music in the first place—to give people something that means something to them,” she said.

Although Tinashe did not say when fans can expect new music, she did share a snippet of what she’s been working on in the studio in a separate post. “I’m too emotional.”
