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.

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.

2004 Grammy Red Carpet
Before hitting the stage with another living legend, Bey practically looked like a Grammy on the red carpet. Gold was definitely her favorite color to rock during this era.

2004 Grammy Performance with Prince
It's hard to imagine that anyone can upstage Prince, but Mrs. Carter sure did in this curve-hugging pink cut-out dress. Dangerous, indeed.

2003 Billboard Music Awards
In one of their first collaborations, Roberto Cavalli adorned Beyonce with this gold fringe dress. Paired with strappy heels, those dangerous curves definitely came out to play.

2003 AFI Lifetime Achievement Awards
We can't recall who the AFI honored that year, but we sure do remember Beyonce's floral Roberto Cavalli gown. This was quite the departure from her previous flashy ensembles.
