Glastonbury 2011: Beyonce's Sparkling Performance

27/06/2011 14:54 | Updated 22 May 2015

Beyonce was in Sasha Fierce mode when she hit the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury last night, and the Crazy In Love proved her diva credentials (as if there was any doubt) when she closed the festival.

And she had an outfit to match. Mrs Jay-Z sported a seriously sparkly sequinned gold Alexandre Vauthier jacket, tiny black pants and humongous hair. But Beyonce, why oh why the obsession with nude fishnet tights?

Apart from prouncing the festival Glaston-berry (presumably a seasonal soft fruit similar to raspberry), the performance was a simply awesome. More than 50,000 fans crammed in front of the Pyramid stage. She told the crowd: "I always wanted to be a rock star and tonight we are all rock stars... I want to make beautiful memories and be free tonight."

The Single Ladies popstress was also supported by husband Jay-Z and Gwyneth Paltrow, who could be spotted looking on, like proud parents in the crowd and taking photos with their photos.

Style Evolution - Beyonce

From a 17-year-old girl group singer to a 27-year-old superstar, Beyoncé Knowles's career and fashion sense have exploded. With her third solo album I am...Sasha Fierce hitting stories late last year, StyleList took a look back at the star's not always stylish evolution.

Sasha Fierce herself recently rocked out at AOL Sessions, check it out!

Can you find Beyoncé in this picture? B - second from right - has come a long way from this sari-clad stop at the 1998 Soul Train awards with the members of Destiny's Child.

At the 1999 Soul Train Awards, the girls of Destiny's Child were a purple haze of taffeta.

Don't blame Beyoncé for the group's third straight matchy matchy trip to the 2000 Soul Train Awards. Blame her mum. Until recently, Tina Knowles was responsible for all of her daughter's red carpet...um...moments. (Maybe that's why the Soul Train Awards went kaput.)

The DC ladies rocked in warrior princess-meets-biker-chick ensembles to the 2000 MTV VMAs.

Making waves? Working the red carpet the 9th Annual MTV Movie Awards in 2000 Beyoncé coordinated the crimping pattern in her hair to the wavy pattern in her dress.

The 43rd Annual Grammy Awards in 2001 were clearly a high point in Beyoncé's early career. Sadly the same can't be said for her fashion choice.

Don't tell mama. Perhaps in an attempt to bond with their young audience, Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle dressed as Girl Scouts for Nickelodeon's 14th Annual Kid's Choice in 2001.

Fans turned up to meet Destiny's Child while they were promoting their mega hit "Survivor" in 2001. Instead, they were greeted by technicolor cowgirls.

At least she had the good sense to avoid a major J-Lo underwear snafu by wearing pasties under her sheer genie suit at the 2002 Grammy Awards.
