Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” tour: when disco floors and futurism converge in high-end designs
After a seven-year absence, the big night finally comes as Beyoncé returns to the stage and kicks off her world tour “Renaissance” on May 10, in Stockholm, Sweden.

The “Queen Bee” opened the show in a tight suit, redesigned by Alexander McQueen from a model in the Fall-Winter 2023 Collection. The bodysuit featured crystal embroidery and silver beetle beads on a black mesh background. The elegance was further accentuated when the singer wore Tiffany & Co. jewelry. Sarah Burton, the British label’s creative director, said the outfit was the result of a close collaboration between her, Beyoncé and stylist Shiona Turini: “I saw her inspiration for the ‘Renaissance’ tour and immediately felt this would be the right look. Working closely with her stylist, Shiona Turini, I edited what we call a “muscle simulation dress” – inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomical drawings – into one jumpsuit for her.”
Beyoncé wears a white bell-sleeve dress that turns into a multicolored dress after reacting to UV light.
