Beyoncé Style Evolution: Destiny's Child Group Member Turned One-Woman Show

With most girl groups, there is always one singer who eventually outshines the rest (think: Diana Ross of The Supremes, Victoria Beckham of The Spice Girls, Coko of SWV and Cheryl Cole of Girls Aloud). But in the case of '90s R&B group Destiny's Child, Beyoncé was clearly groomed for the solo spotlight while still sharing the stage.

In 2003, the Houston native released her debut solo album and made us fall crazy in love with her southern twang, sexy dance moves and stunning vocals. And it didn't take long for everyone to recognize that Beyoncé was a whole 'lotta woman, as she showed off her curvy figure in skin-tight numbers and sparkling jewels. Not even pregnancy could stop the "7/11" singer from taking to the New York City streets in fashion-forward maternity wear. And can we discuss her post-baby healthy lifestyle? In one word, it's fierce.

As Mrs. Jay-Z celebrates her birthday on September 4, we're taking a look back at the multi-hyphenate star's style over the years.
