You gotta love girl bands and their willingness to wear some variation of the same outfit—and then pose together! Back in 2000, the ladies of Destiny's Child worked the MTV VMAs red carpet in sparkly leather ensembles, each taking their own spin on the oh-so millennial silhouette. Beyonce, in all her bravery, went for an evening gown with a bustier bodice.
In 2001, Destiny's Child snagged a VMA for their song "Survivor." They took home their award in orange outfits decorated with lots and lots of fringe and turquoise accents.
Please notice Kelly Rowland's thigh-high boots.
Jump to two years later, Queen Bey was looking like, well, royalty in her sparkly gold number and chandelier earrings. She not only rocked a deep V but also a high-slit. Talk about Sasha Fierce...
Later that same evening, Bey changed into this metallic crop top and pants combo for her performance with now-hubby Jay Z. If you recall, Beyonce was wearing sparkly hot shorts under those capris.
This sartorial moment will go down in MTV VMAs history. Just take it in.
Reunited with the Destiny's Child gals, Beyonce went for a liquid silver situation for the MTV VMAs in 2005. Your senior year prom dress was probably inspired by this slinky dress.
In 2006, Beyonce upped the ante with cut-outs, bejeweled appliques, and a ton of sheer paneling decorated with sequins.
It’s not a combination most would approve of, but for some reason, this lady makes fishnets, thigh-high boots, and patent leather shorts work together in harmony.
Beyonce looked like a goddess in her metallic gold draped gown in 2007.
Remember when Beyonce wore this red hot mini on stage in 2009? You know, the year when Kanye West interrupted T-Swift's acceptance speech. Yep, that one.
Don't even lie. You wanted this "Single Ladies" performance outfit.
This isn't the outfit 2011 is most commonly associated with (that's next!), but Beyonce looked gorgeous in her one-shoulder scarlet red evening gown. We're especially fond of that side-ponytail.
Behold—the sparkly purple blazer Beyonce cleverly announced her pregnancy with Blue Ivy in. Oh, the memories.
