Beyoncé has been a living legend and style icon since her days in Destiny's Child. As one of the most famous names across the entertainment industry, the singer serves to be a symbol and cultural force for empowerment, feminism, and activism.

During the pandemic, Beyoncé spoke about slowing down her projects and focusing on her joy, as she's been working non-stop since the age of 15. More recently, the superstar opened up about her own self-care journey and struggles with her body and diet culture as a whole.

"In the past, I spent too much time on diets, with the misconception that self-care meant exercising and being overly conscious of my body," she said to Harper's Bazaar. "My health, the way I feel when I wake up in the morning, my peace of mind, the number of times I smile, what I’m feeding my mind and my body-those are the things that I’ve been focusing on."

Over her decades-long career, Beyoncé has made a name for herself in the music, acting, and fashion worlds. The public has witnessed her style evolution from the crop tops, low-rise jeans, and '90s girl-group fashion of Destiny's Child to the dazzling gowns by designer after designer. In celebration of her 40th birthday, L'OFFICIEL takes a look at how putting her health and wellness first has contributed to Beyoncé's style evolution.
