For their On the Run II (OTR II) tour, Jay Z and Beyoncé pulled out all the stops for their outfits. The Formation singer was seen in latex, lamé, and even leopard-print bodysuits.
Wednesday was the launch of their tour in Wales, United Kingdom. The Hollywood Reporter shared that the pair wore designers like Givenchy and Mugler on stage.
Fans got to see Jay Z and Beyoncé in costumes designed by fashion houses like Givenchy, Mugler, Balmain, Maison Margiela, Gucci, and LaQuan Smith in Cardiff. Givenchy artistic director Clare Waight Keller exclusively designed OTR II outfits.
They were inspired by her Spring-Summer 2018 Haute Couture collection. Jay-Z's opening look featured a white double-breasted tuxedo worn with a silk T-shirt adapted from the Spring-Summer 2018 men’s Haute Couture Collection.
He wore the sharp-shouldered suit with Beyoncé next to him. She was in custom LaQuan Smith, a sheer-netted turtleneck bodysuit, and matching blazer.
A costume change saw the rapper wearing a Yves Klein blue bomber jacket and black wool tuxedo pants from Maison Margiela’s Autumn-Winter 2018 collection. Beyoncé wore denim shorts, a custom Dapper Dan-Gucci canvas hoodie, a Gucci metal harness, and GG-printed over-the-knee boots.
“I am truly honored to have had the chance to design looks for Beyoncé’s OTR II. To me, Beyoncé embodies the ultimate woman: strong, resolute and so incredibly talented.”

At one point, Beyoncé also went holographic in Balmain. For that look, she wore a bodysuit, oversized jacket and thigh-high boots with garters.
During her performance of Formation, the singer sported a custom Mugler. She sang in a leather corset with thigh-high boots designed by Casey Cadwallader.
The star and her backup dancers all wore custom hats inspired by Mugler archives (Thierry Mugler 1995). They were made by Maison Michel.
Givenchy was responsible for creating Beyoncé’s final look. She wore a dark bodysuit with an oversized bow, worn with thigh-high leather boots.
This look was adapted from the Fall-Winter ready-to-wear collection. For added measure, the singer included a detachable skirt with hand-embroidered crystals.
The OTR II tour will have 48 dates in Europe and North America through to October 4. For more on this story go to our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
