Beyonce Knowles has been making fashion headlines since she burst onto the music scene as the lead singer of the female R&B group Destiny's Child in the mid-1990s. With her mother Tina Knowles as her stylist in the early days, some of her sartorial choices were more attention-getting than admirable, but over the years, she has matured into one of our best-dressed celebrities. Her sense of color, keen understanding of what flatters her figure, undeniable flair for the dramatic, and willingness to experiment add up to one well-heeled diva.

And speaking of heels, her love of amazing shoes is legendary. Did you see the Alain Quilici boots she wore in New York in November 2011?
