There's no doubt that Beyonce, a.k.a. Mrs. Jay Z, is one of the most stylish musicians in the game. She constantly surprises with statement-making ensembles both on and off the red carpet, always managing to strike the perfect balance between bold glamour and timeless beauty.

She's appeared on countless magazine covers, modeled in Tom Ford's first women's collection runway show (see video below), and even dabbled in design when she and her mother started their House of Deréon line back in 2004. Not only is Beyonce the official queen of hip-hop, she's also become one of the music industry's chicest icons.

Today, on B's 30th birthday, we're looking back to see how far, in fashion, she's come — from the days of matching with her Destiny's Child crew, to her curve-hugging performance wear, to her stunning designer gowns. Take a look through our gallery to see the best of Beyonce through the years.
