Is Beyonce your style muse for prom? Love it! Queen B’s fashion choices are always amazing. She's so good at toeing the line between edgy and feminine.
If you're looking for a Beyonce inspired prom dress, we already know that you love to stand out and take fashion risks. But narrowing down your options can still be hard. So we're pulling seven Beyonce-inspired prom dresses based on Beyonce's best fashion moments for you to check out.
Make An Entrance With These Beyonce Prom Dresses
If Sasha Fierce herself saw you in any of these Beyonce-inspired prom dresses, she'd be so proud! Let's take a look, shall we?
1. Beyonce at the Met Gala
Several of Beyonce's Met Gala looks consist of this classic color combo: black and gold. We don't blame her. Together, they create a stunning, luxe look. Beyonce dresses for prom should also be ultra-glam. When else can you go all out?
This dress features a mermaid silhouette and sweetheart neckline a style that Beyonce loves to wear. Why? It shows off a woman's hourglass shape. (Marilyn Monroe was also a fan!) To recreate her dress, we recommend thin or no straps.
Don't be afraid to accessorize with some bold earrings or necklaces. Beyonce always takes risks with her accessories, especially for the Met Gala.
2. Beyonce at the 2019 Lion King premiere
Beyonce loves to wear different shades of yellow and gold. We know why: these colors look amazing against her skin tone.
One of our favorite golden Beyonce looks is her dress at the London Lion King premiere in 2019. This Beyonce prom dress totally reminds us of that iconic style moment.
Like the original dress, this Beyonce dress has criss-cross pleats across the waist, which emphasizes a tiny waist. It also has off-the-shoulder sleeves, which create the same effortlessly glam vibe.
Keep your hair down (sleek and straight) to recreate the full look.
3. Beyonce at the 2017 Grammy Awards
Beyonce also looks amazing in red — it captures her fiery personality.
If you also give off red-hot energy, this Beyonce prom dress was made for you. Like her 2017 Grammys look, this mermaid dress is skin-tight and covered in eye-catching sequins.
It also has a plunging v-neckline, like the original red carpet look. Beyonce decorated her collarbone with a luxe diamond lariat necklace. We recommend rocking a statement necklace, too!
Queen B added hair extensions for her Grammys look and kept it jet straight. How will you style yours?
4. Beyonce at the 2018 City of Hope gala
Performing at the City of Hope gala in 2018, Beyonce looked like an absolute angel! If that ensemble made you swoon, you'll love this Beyonce prom dress.
Just like her original look, this dress is rose gold and offers a body-hugging mermaid silhouette with sequins and feathers. While feathers are super unique, Beyonce is known to decorate her outfits with them. (Yes, she's always setting trends!)
Beyonce crimped her hair and rocked studded pumps to complete this gorgeous outfit. The ‘90s crimped hair is still in, so we totally recommend it for your look, too!
5. Beyonce at the 2006 Dreamgirls premiere
Let's take a trip down memory lane. Yes, Beyonce has been a style icon for years and there are some looks we'll never forget—like the ruffled blue dress she wore to the 2006 Dreamgirls premiere
Typically, Beyonce goes for an edgier vibe. This whimsical look is very different, which keeps fashion critics and her fans on their toes. If your style is soft and carefree, we recommend a Beyonce prom dress like this.
Like the original outfit, this tiffany blue gown is about its ruffled skirt. This Beyonce dress also offers an A-line silhouette. A-line dresses with full, voluminous skirts are super flattering because they draw attention to the smallest part of your body: your waist.
For the Dreamgirls premiere, Beyonce didn’t shy away from blue eyeshadow. Do you dare to recreate her makeup, too?
6. Beyonce at the 2022 Oscar Awards
We all know that Beyonce loves a neon yellow or green moment. We've seen her rock these bright colors at the Oscars, Grammys, and even her most recent Renaissance Tour.
If you love to rock bold, bright colors, this neon yellow Beyonce-inspired prom dress is all yours. Paired with a high slit in the skirt? Va-va-voom! You're bound to turn heads in this gown.
Beyonce also loves to mix and match textures — and this dress definitely does that. You'll find velvet underneath these head-to-toe sequins, which create a unique look and feel. Beyonce would love this dress.
7. Beyonce at the 2017 Grammy Awards
Can we get enough golden moments from Beyonce? Of course not! This last Beyonce prom dress is inspired by her iconic performance at the 2017 Grammys. Her ensemble included a long-sleeve embellished dress, a sun-inspired headpiece, and a gold cuff necklace.
She looked like a goddess—and you can, too, in this Beyonce prom dress. This full sequin dress has cape sleeves, a deep-v neckline, and a slinky mermaid silhouette. The built-in belt ensures your waist won't get lost in its luxurious, drapey fabric.
While you may not choose to accessorize with a dramatic headpiece, we recommend bold, chunky jewelry to achieve a similar look.
