There was a Storm at Ciara’s birthday party, and she went by the name Beyoncé.
Saturday night was Ciara’s 30th birthday party, and, of course, it had a superhero theme. The birthday girl channelled her inner Catwoman in a skin-tight bodysuit, and her NFL star boyfriend Russell Wilson dressed as the Dark Knight himself, Batman. The couple also showed up to the party in style: Batmobile style.
Ciara’s pal Beyoncé, 34, channeled the weather-controlling vixen Storm, who is a character in Marvel’s X-Men comics. Beyoncé just so happened to pull the look off flawlessly, from the bleached hair to the intense sky-blue contact lenses, signaling that she just might be pulling off some weather manipulation in the near future. Her snug, cleavage-bearing dress gave Halle Berry, who played the mutant in four X-Men films, a run for her money. Beyoncé topped off the look with a white cape and a black headband.
The party, which took place in the Warner Brothers lot in Los Angeles, was also attended by Beyoncé’s former Destiny’s Child co-diva Kelly Rowland and comedian Jeff Dye.
Dye, who personified Marvel’s The Punisher, made sure to post a snapshot of himself with Beyoncé to Instagram.
Lala Anthony also posted a photo to Instagram, showing off her costume as well as her pals Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Angie Beyince. Beyoncé’s bright white dress stands out in the photo, where everyone else’s costumes are a bit on the dark side.
Kelly Rowland also posted a photo with a few more friends, including Harley Quinn.
When the internet found out about Beyoncé’s costume choice, it was declared that “Beyoncé as Storm is the superhero movie we need.”
Beyoncé is no stranger to amazing Halloween costumes. Last year, she teamed up with her daughter, Blue Ivy, and the pair went as Janet and Michael Jackson, with Blue Ivy rocking a white glove. On a different occasion that year, Beyoncé portrayed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo while husband Jay-Z portrayed artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. In 2011, Bey went simple with a bumblebee costume to Kanye West’s Halloween party.
Aside from being a super-mutant, Beyoncé has been maintaining her superstar status. On October 20, she attended the Tidal X: 1020 concert in New York City, where she and hubby Jay-Z gave an epic performance. The event, which was for charity, is the first of many to be produced by Tidal, the couple’s streaming music service. The concerts are only available to Tidal subscribers.
Beyoncé also graced the October cover of BEAT magazine and slyly gave an interview–her first print interview since 2013. In the interview, she talks about what she sings in the shower (“Holy Ghost“ by Kim Burrell) and the most important question of all time — what she eats on her pizza (“extra tomato sauce and jalapeños,” she states). She also shares what fear tastes like, exactly.
“What does fear taste like? Success. I have accomplished nothing without a little taste of fear in my mouth.”
Before that, she graced the cover of yet another magazine: Vogue, whose article on the Queen B is aptly titled The Reign of Beyoncé.
“The word diva is used for so many female performers, and it often means they have reputations for being difficult, but she exudes charm and a lovable quality,” Marc Jacobs gushed.
It’s pretty obvious that Beyoncé, answering the question asked in her song “Girls (Run The World),” runs the world. When asked which Beyoncé she would be for Halloween, she couldn’t decide.
“Destiny’s Child Survivor era with the army fatigues. Or maybe Bootylicious with the gold tooth and pink tips in my hair.”
