So you think you want to be Beyoncé? Don’t we all! While balancing motherhood, a music career and a multi-million dollar empire sounds like a loaded plate, there are other ways to channel your inner and outer Bey this Halloween. Here are four costume inspirations courtesy of Mrs. Knowles-Carter.
1. Superheroines are always fly.
Even if you can’t prance around in heels for day-long rehearsals like the “Diva” singer, you can produce super powers just by throwing on a cape or dressing as a comic book classic.
2. Personality goes a long way.
How extremely clever yet so simple is Bey’s version of Queen Bee? It’s a simple reminder of who runs the world long after Halloween’s over.
3. Retro never goes out of style.
Foxy Cleopatra had women thirsty for big ‘fros and chunky platforms. When Beyoncé rocked the big screen in 2002’s Austin Powers: Goldmember, it became an instant Party City staple.
Throw it back to Bey’s ‘Why Don’t You Love Me?’ visual where she slapped on heels, daisy dukes and a bandana as B.B. Homemaker. Though her life is far from housewife status, it’s always fun to be the opposite of what you are.
