Anyone who loves Beyoncé will be familiar with her art-directed outfit pictures on Instagram, where she creates mood boards, flashing videos, and collages of her latest looks. Beyoncé is hugely private and rarely photographed anywhere except the red carpet or on stage, so her Instagram gives us an insight into what she wears when she isn't in performance mode or spectacular Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Met Gala gowns. In 2016, Beyoncé launched her own athleisure label, Ivy Park, and on Instagram, you're as likely to see her wearing ripped jeans and a hoodie as you are a ruffled Dolce & Gabbana gown. Keep scrolling to see 13 of Beyoncé's go-to style moves.
