Who run the world? Beyoncé. We already knew that, but it looks like Cleveland’s own Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is catching on, too. The Rock Hall is unveiling a new fashion exhibition centered around Beyoncé and will feature items from her personal collection.
Opening on Tuesday, July 22, the new Beyoncé exhibit can be found in the Ahmet Ertegun Main Exhibit Hall in Legends of Rock. Here’s a few highlights from the collection that you may remember from some of Beyoncé’s most important career moments.
This outfit was worn by Beyoncé on the Dangerously in Love album cover from 2003, which is here in case you forgot (how could you?)
This Rubin Singer leather and lace body suit was worn by Beyoncé at her infamous 2013 Super Bowl halftime show performance.
Beyoncé’s stylist, Ty Hunter, said of this choice “A lot of different designers came to Beyoncé with sketches, but in the end Russian designer Rubin Singer created something magical. Beyoncé wanted funky, edgy, and feminine all in one and that’s what Rubin created.”
Gareth Pugh designed this gold dress and it was chosen for the ‘Run the World (Girls)’ music video from 2011.
Of this dress, stylist Ty Hunter said, “I saw Gareth Pugh’s show and it reminded me of “Sweet Dreams,” a futuristic Beyoncé video from the ‘I AM…Sasha Fierce’ album. I asked Pugh to pull this specific outfit, and it ended up working very well with the desert as a backdrop in the video.”
Beyoncé wore this pair of gold geometric ankle boots worn in the “Run the World (Girls)” music video from 2011.
This left-handed silver/bronze jointed metal glove was worn in the video for ‘Single Ladies’ from 2008.
Ty Hunter said of this glove from the inconic video, “Beyoncé wanted a minimal look. Designer Tina Knowles, Beyoncé’s mother, designed the look. A Lorraine Schwartz titanium glove accompanies the famous hand swing.”
