Beyoncé's 'On the Run' Tour Leotards: The Good, the Bad and the Butt-Framing

If you’re in the market for a sexy leotard, possibly one with a good deal of butt exposure, you may want to move quickly: Beyoncé has cornered the market and at the rate she’s going, there may be a shortage by the end of 2014. After wearing a variety of creative onesies on her Mrs. Carter tour, at the Grammys and in her videos, we didn’t know how much farther she could go within the medium. We should never underestimate the Queen Bey, though: she’s even topped her own personal leotard record with her latest outfits for her joint “On the Run” tour with husband Jay Z, which kicked off Wednesday in Miami.

There were plenty of things to discuss from the kickoff concert (the Carters show wedding footage! They dance up on each other!) but most noteworthy, in our opinion, was Beyoncé’s most butt-framing leotard, as seen above left. It gives a whole new meaning to “business in the front, party in the back,” and is not recommended for the average person at work. Bey also went for a sparkly surfer-girl vibe in a one-piece with a sequin bikini bottom/rash guard feel thanks to the sheer stomach panel. Then there was the “sexy denim cop” complete with denim garters (courtesy of Diesel), the “sexy burglar” complete with crystal mesh balaclava (and more butt-framing pieces) and “sexy ’80s video girl” in an Atelier Versace unitard with matching Medusa-emblazoned beanie. And we assure you, this is only a sample of the many leotards in which Bey performed.

Truly, no one wears a tight one-piece quite like Beyoncé (sorry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus), and since she spends her whole concert dancing like crazy, we know she needs the full range of motion. Are you loving her leotard obsession, or are you ready for her to try a new look? Which is your favorite? And how about that butt window?

not her finest looks. I know they are “stage clothes”, but still, really trashy and not flattering.

Yikes, not attractive or sexy. She looks like a cheap wh*re in bad ice skating competition attire. Sorry, Beyonce. Truth, people!!!

So just because people are rich and beautiful you get a pass to be classless? I’m sure next week when she decides to wear a garbage bag, you will call it ‘Art’. The world is running out of ideas let’s face it

Beyoncé is so awesome. Can’t believe people think her and Kim should be compared or even mentioned in the same sentence. While I don’t like the leotard on the top left I do like the rest. She’s performing for a tour so she’s going to jazz it up a bit.. I think it’s awesome they showed wedding footage since husband and wife are on this tour together!! Beyoncé is an amazing and beautiful performer and I’m glad she has all the success she has worked so hard for.

she is trying so hard to still be sexy after motherhood…she is really trying to sex it up and be like Rhianna. Beyonce was the hot chick until Rhianna came on the scene.

She is so trashy now.
