How’s this for #MotivationMonday: Clearly, being on the seemingly nonstop On the Run II tour is no excuse for not keeping it fresh for the ‘gram, because Bey blessed the hive with a little on-the-go glamour this weekend, en route to her Warsaw, Poland tour stop.


The queen set the scene, wearing the ruffled and appliqued pink paisley “Radiate” short set from Australian label Zimmerman’s spring-summer ‘18 collection. Both onboard a private jet and behind the scenes of one of her venues, Bey gave us warm-weather, jet-setting realness, pairing the look with a white box bag, retro sunnies and lucite mules.


What we loved the most? The details; namely, the star’s messy, gravity-defying topknot and strong, red, statement lip and nails, plus the cluster of pearl-and diamond encrusted hoops and posts climbing up her multiple ear piercings. And of course, there’s also this lax, Lil’ Kim-like moment.

Mostly we just loved the attitude—which was equal parts “Diva,” “7/11" and “Love on Top”—but 100 percent Beyoncé, serving just the momentary distraction we needed in these dark times.
