Beyoncé rocks yellow Versace outfit with matching hat during Global Citizen Festival
Beyoncé stunned in yet another eye-popping Versace costume as she led an all-star line-up at yesterday’s Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg.
The superstar’s mom, Tina Lawson, took to Instagram with a clip from the performance and Beyoncé can be seen in all her glory, rocking a yellow Versace jumpsuit.

The skin-tight piece featured a low neckline that put the singer’s cleavage on display. It also came with a matching hat and shoes, and a floor-length Chiffon coat. As fans saw during her and Jay-Z’s recently-concluded tour, Beyoncé’s backup dancers wore similar outfits in different colors.
“These Versace colors were gorgeous. They reminded me of the chiffon dresses on tour! Do yal remember,” Lawson wrote alongside the video.
Beyoncé was performing at the Global Citizen Festival held at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg. The event aims to raise money to put an end to extreme poverty by 2030, but this year’s edition was even more special because it was in honor of the late Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday.

The former president of South Africa died in 2013 at the age of 95 and remains one of the world’s most respected Human rights campaigners who succeeded in ending the oppressive apartheid rule in South Africa.
Beyoncé and her family – including her rarely-seen one-year-old twins, Rumi and Sir -- were spotted getting into South Africa on Friday, but the “Formation” singer had earlier paid tribute to Mandela on her website.
"Your kindness and gratitude for every experience and your ability to forgive are lessons I have learned and will pass on to my three children. My entire family holds you in high regard. It is an honor for me to travel to South Africa this week in celebration of you and your efforts to right so many wrongs. You were a strategic warrior, a bold activist, and charismatic and well-loved leader. Your vision for dignity, for human rights, for peace and a South Africa free of racism and apartheid, allows us all to turn dreams into reality."
Beyoncé led a star-studded performance line-up that included her husband Jay-Z, Pharrell Williams, Ed Sheeran, Usher, and Chris Martin. Top South-African and Nigerian music artists like Cassper Nyovest, D’banj, and Tiwa Savage also took the stage at various times. Trevor Noah hosted the concert, with appearances from the fellow South African celebrity, Bonang Matheba.
Media mogul, Oprah Winfrey was also in attendance, as was supermodel Naomi Campbell. Mandela’s grandson, who was there with the rest of the family, finally implored concert-goers, saying:
“Today it is a privilege and choice for us to take action on behalf of the hundreds of millions of people trapped in the cycle of poverty. So I plead with you, don't think of this as just a music festival, this is a call to the hearts and minds of humanity all across the world.”
