Updated: Thursday, July 12, at 9:45 p.m. EDT: As promised, we’re back with details: the color-blocked blouse Bey was rocking is from French fashion house Céline and the studded denim cutoffs are from Coal N’ Terry Vintage, creators of her Beychella cutoffs. The red cat-eyed sunglasses are from Illesteva.


Earlier: Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter is no stranger to a leggy look—after all, this is the woman most readily associated with the bodysuit. But since the April blowout otherwise known as Beychella, the icon has been gravitating back to her “Crazy in Love”-era denim cutoffs, sporting them on tour and offstage, as evidenced by a series of photos posted to the star’s Instagram on Thursday morning.


Modeling at a very sporty location that we’re guessing was Barcelona’s Olympic Stadium (where the Carters performed on Wednesday night), Beyoncé dresses up a pair of her now-trademark denim “booty-shorts” with a Gordon Gartrell-ish (Google it) color-blocked white blouse just sheer enough to allow a bright yellow lace bra to peek through. She accessorizes with a complimentary color-blocked snakeskin and leather tote by Dior, taupe suede stiletto sandals, red cat-eye glasses, and her hair wet-and-wavy center-parted and worn loose about her shoulders.

But let’s double back to those denim cutoffs, which were all business in the front—save a few strategically-placed slashes—and a big-ass party in the back. (Don’t believe me? Scroll through the top post). The back of the shorts were cut just high enough for a tasteful peek of cheek and entirely embellished with silver dome studs, giving a nice surprise to anyone who dares give that glance back (and honestly, who wouldn’t?)

Outside of that Dior bag, we’d yet to receive any designer details as of press time, so we’ll be back to update you, should we learn more (though for the crafty among you, you can recreate this look at home, courtesy of Etsy). In the meantime, let’s just love on how Bey manages to find a “4” wherever she goes.
