The Beyoncé Renaissance Film Premiere Silver Carpet Continues to Give Glamour

It really should cost a billion to look this good.

This article was originally published on November 27, 2023 and has been updated. 

One of this year’s most-anticipated and fashion-filled concert movies, Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé, had two star-studded premieres in Los Angeles and London ahead of the film’s global release and, of course, both events were full of shimmery opulence and high drama.

For the fashionable U.K. premiere, Beyoncé wowed in not one but two dazzling looks.

The “Break My Soul” singer’s first outfit consisted of a custom Thom Browne couture gown with a peekaboo bodysuit fitted with a long, flowing train. She accessorized the hand-embroidered crystal look with black platform booties, fingerless gloves and dangly crystal earrings.

The sparkly gown complemented Taylor Swift’s shimmery silver dress, as the two stars posed together on the carpet.

Just as Beyoncé showed her support for Swift by attending her Eras Tour film premiere in October, Swift hit the Renaissance movie’s London carpet for another sweet legends-supporting-legends moment.

Swift followed the event’s silver theme, wearing a high-slit sequinned Balmain gown with Anita Ko jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe heels.

Later in the evening, Bey changed into her second look of the night, which also happened to be designed by Balmain.

The singer’s bejewelled after-party look featured an artful, structured mini-dress embellished with countless embroidered pearls, crystals, and silver sequins. A dramatic blue gem was the focus of the look, sitting in the middle of Bey’s torso, a draped sequin hemline finishing off the ensemble. In usual Queen Bey fashion, she tied the look together with elegant black opera gloves.

Among the A-listers who hit the chrome carpet for the November 25 Los Angeles premiere included Issa Rae, Lupita Nyong’o and, of course, Beyoncé herself, who arrived fashionably late in a show-stopping, head-to-toe silver look.

As the guest of honour, Beyoncé shone in a custom strapless Versace dress constructed with the brand’s signature chainmail design. With its statement neckline and matching metallic gloves, the dress nodded to many of the couture outfits the singer wore throughout the Renaissance Tour’s five-month run. To finish off her futuristic premiere outfit, Bey sported a straight, hip-length platinum blonde hairdo and soft glam makeup.

In addition to the droves of stars who came out for the exciting occasion, Beyoncé’s former Destiny’s Child group members Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett all made a special appearance to support their (a moment that Beyoncé’s mom Tina Knowles shared in a sweet Instagram post). And, of course, each of the girls followed the unofficial theme of the evening with their head-turning looks.

In a subtle nod to Madonna, whom Beyoncé has cited as her inspiration on numerous occasions, Rowland donned a silver mermaid-style dress with an accented cone bra from Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall 2023 couture collection. She complimented the dazzling dress with matching metallic heels and blindingly sparkly jewels.

Taking a more dramatic approach, the rest of the Destiny’s Child ladies opted for sleek, all-black looks. Williams embraced the no-pants trend by wearing a bodysuit with an exaggerated collar and a sheer skirt fitted with a tulle train by Bishme Cromartie. Roberson went for an asymmetrical look in a black velvet gown with a diamond-shaped cutout detail. Lastly, Luckett wore a black long-sleeved leather gown, accessorizing with a clutch and heels in Bey’s signature silver.

After the hundreds of custom designer looks that Queen Bey sported throughout the Renaissance tour, it’s no surprise that some of the evening’s A-list attendees wanted to pay homage to Beyoncé’s iconic on-stage presence with their premiere outfits.

Singer Victoria Monét did just that with a bright red hooded custom Theophilio ensemble, which featured a flowing train and matching mesh red opera gloves. This outfit emulated a hooded crimson mini-dress by Carolina Herrera that Beyoncé wore during the Hamburg, Germany stop of the tour.

Other special chrome carpet guests, such as the Alien Superstar themself, made references to more unforgettable moments of the tour.

In addition to showcasing Bey’s high-energy, superstar-level performances (not to mention tour looks), Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé delivers intimate, behind-the-scenes details on the making of the tour. Plus, the movie dives into Bey’s own personal journey of putting the world tour together, which reportedly helped her transform from a self-proclaimed “people pleaser” to the bona fide superstar she is today.
