There are some celebrities whose knockout looks you could count on two hands. But rounding up Beyoncé's most stunning outfits? That's a nearly impossible feat. The artist has been on the scene for two decades and has had so many hit singles and albums that the number of stages and red carpets she's stepped out on is big enough to jumble the brain. Of course, there's been an incredible look to go along with each one of those occasions, so you can imagine that her outfit repertoire is pretty unparalleled.

Also important to note is that Beyoncé's style has always been refined to perfection. While so-called naked dresses, gowns dripping in jewels and embellishments, and mermaid silhouettes have constituted many of her red carpet looks, each one has its own unique spin to it. And when she does eschew her glamorous gowns for something a bit more unexpected, it's always a visual treat. Below, treat yourself to 35 of Beyoncé's most show-stopping looks. Spanning from present day all the way back to 2003, the list is a walk down memory lane and will remind you of many moments that made the performer the straight-up icon she is today.

Harper’s Bazaar August Cover, 2021

In Harper’s Bazaar’s Icons issue in August 2021, Beyoncé brings back her “Daddy Lessons” Western style. Her crocheted Valentino sweater doesn’t skimp on the fringe. However, the devil’s in the details: a Stetson, leather gloves, and a chunky Tiffany’s necklace.

Even in 2000, Bey was ahead of the times. Now, 21 years later, people are still rocking similar bandana tops.

The Grammys are pretty much Beyoncé’s party, and she stunted in her custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture leather dress. The dress had built-in gloves, with, in Bey style, gold nail details added.

Pants for days. These wide-leg floral pants are a scene-stealer, but Bey styled them well with a tied-up, white button-down and tinted shades. It’s the perfect look for a daytime date.

OK, feathers. Bey is ready to take flight in this look, but if you pay close attention, you’ll also note the Egyptian hieroglyph print detailing this top.

This pink, mesh jumpsuit with orange details is a look in-and-of-itself, but Bey took it a step further with a corset to match.

Bringing back the early ‘00s holographic print, this look is the ideal combo of comfy and seductive. Big, cozy jacket paired with thigh-high boots? Sign me up.

This red-and-gold look from 2003 has me feeling “Crazy in Love.” Like a true 2000s It Girl, the belly button ring is on full display.

Accessories to the max. Bey pulled out every accessory stop with this logomania, jewel-encrusted look.

Yes, ‘60s ski resort, go off! All that’s missing is a puffer, one of those fur caps, and a muff.

Bey is doused in gems in this illusion dress. There are so many details in this look, it’s impossible to list them all, but my favorite is the high neck loaded with intricate lace.

When going out on the town, the artist usually wears black and gold palettes, but d*mn if Beyoncé doesn’t slay in this wavy, color-filled pantsuit. Where can I buy one?

This white pantsuit literally redefines the concept of drippin’ as Bey has chains covering the suit like she’s the coolest chandelier ever brought to life.
