Friday Flashback: Beyoncé and the Ladies of Destiny's Child
As soon as we heard the news that Destiny’s Child will be releasing an album on Jan. 29, our first thoughts were, puh-lease let them go on tour and puh-lease let them do it in those amazing coordinating outfits they used to wear. You know, the ones that look like this:
However, Beyoncé, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland have come a long way since the matchy-matchy, Tina Knowles-designed, over-the-top ensembles they rocked back at the Source Hip-Hop Music Awards in 2000 (left) and at the MTV Icon: Janet Jackson event in 2001 (right).
And though we can’t imagine any of them ever wearing shredded flare jeans held together with safety pins and belly chains these days, one thing most definitely has not changed: Bey and crew are still pushing the envelope with their style. And their bodies are still as bootylicious as they were a decade ago.
So, are we holding our breath in hopes that the trio will bring back bikini tops with bedazzled bottoms and sandals, or that they’ll hit the stage in Hawaiian-print bra tops with flares and matching glittery pointy-toe pumps? No. But we’d put good money on Destiny’s Child stepping out at least once in 2013 in coordinating outfits that will leave jaws on the floor. And yes, we’re ready for that jelly. Tell us: What do you think about Destiny’s Child’s old-school looks?
