Beyoncé's film Renaissance highlights a futuristic makeover in fashion.
If you are considering seeing Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé, please do yourself a favor and go — it’s an exciting and pivoting film that goes behind the scenes of her tour.
We get to see the superstar up close and personal in her most vulnerable moments. The visuals also highlight the fashion we gushed over in the summer.
Renaissance in the film expresses a rebirth in culture, music, and fashion. The Renaissance fashion I saw in the movie transcended into empowerment, self-expression, and innovation.
A Movement of Empowerment
There was no secret her album focused on the LGBTQIA community. A representation desperately needed to showcase the singer's focus on inclusivity in a male-dominated music industry. The film shows her fashion went beyond the standard and into colorful prints and garments. Knowing everything has intention and meaning, especially on her tours, pay attention to song choice and the outfit she accompanies it with.
A favorite of mine worn in L.A. by Emilio Pucci was a jumpsuit in an archival print featuring a pink, red, blue, and green color palette - adorned with a rhinestone body chain and matching hat.
The jumpsuit showed pride and solidarity in her empowered set of songs (“Energy,” “Break My Soul,” and “Cuff It.”)
Beyoncé also supported Black designers in June when she wore all-Black designer costumes on tour for Juneteenth. You might catch her in Telfar donning a red sparkle jumpsuit with white trim on her sleeves and silhouette.
Self-Expression Is Law in the House of Renaissance
"I have nothing to prove to anyone at this point," Beyoncé says in the opening.
There is no hiding who you are in the House of Renaissance. Whether you are feminine, masculine, or non-binary- you can flounce, bounce, and twerk into a crowd of acceptance.
Showing fans can come to a show where they aren't defined and move without judgment — embracing a lifestyle of freedom. The film shows concert-goers in their most self-expressed costumes with chrome, silver, and sparkle adjacents to watch their idol perform.
Her most famous outfit recreated by fans was the "hands" bodysuit made by Loewe. The bodysuit came in three colors, but the crowd's fave dipped in gold with black hands.
Innovation Is Her Name

Beyoncé’s mission for fashion was to go above and beyond and create a futuristic revolution.
A rebirth unveiled new ways of pushing the envelope. Agent Provocateur dressed her in lingerie, exhibiting crystals and chrome instead of lace.
Gucci pink satin dress, wide brim hat, and dazzling binoculars gave another look to a romantic ballad she sung to her audience.
Not only did she shift our views, but her looks will go down in history.
A pop-up store and exhibition appeared in London. Her mother, Tina Knowles, states the looks from the tour "will be archived."
It's groundbreaking, especially as a woman of color. Changing culture one album and tour at a time.
If anyone were to look up innovator in the dictionary — it would show Beyoncé.

In the words of ballrooms for the LGBTQIA family everywhere, "And the category is." Ms. Beyoncé deserved an award for taking fashion on tour to the next level. A trendsetter, revolutionary, and lover of all, the fashion spoke for itself. We will continue to talk about the iconic looks for years to come.
