Everyone adjust your posture and don your best silver looks — Beyoncé is in town.

The singer touched down in London earlier this week for the premiere of her Renaissance tour film on Thursday in Leicester Square, just five days on from the film's Los Angeles premiere.

The LA showing brought with it some big names, with guests including Kelly Rowland, Lizzo, Janelle Monáe and Kris Jenner — and London wasn't any different.

Attendees included Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, Michelle Williams, Will.i.am and Jay Z (likely place for him to be). Swift's attendance was a pleasant surprise, though a fitting one considering that Beyoncé attended the premiere of her Eras tour film back in October.

Bey worked the red carpet with Blue Ivy in tow. The mother-daughter duo shared a cute moment when Beyoncé realised Blue was cold during the photo call, requesting that she be given a coat by an aide.

Queen Bee on the other hand, was not in need of a cover-up, as she was all wrapped up in a black sequin bodysuit by Thom Browne, save for a gold peek-a-boo moment at the crotch in the form of a gold lotus-like emblem.

The 29-time Grammy winner was also rocking the platinum blonde, poker straight hair she first debuted at the Los Angeles film premiere on 25 November. She wore her dramatic bodysuit with black leather gloves and some towering heels, also by Thom Browne.

Jay Z, for his part, wore a black velvet dinner jacket, black tuxedo trousers, a white dress shirt and an oversized velvet bow tie, with a black single-breasted coat and - of course - blacked out sunnies, to avoid the glare of the paps.

Beyoncé's best look came later in the night, when she changed into an elaborate Balmain cocktail dress for the after party. The mini dress featured a massive sapphire-style jeweled center, with silver orbs and pearls bursting outwards and cascading down to form a skirt. She paired the garment with black velvet opera gloves and simple black pointed-toe heels.

Also looking bejewelled in Balmain was Taylor Swift, who attended the premiere in a silver beaded evening gown with a thigh-high split. The All Too Well hitmaker was also sporting her signature red lip with her trademark blonde waves worn in a dramatic side-parting.

Blake Lively opted for Chanel, arriving in a split blazer and black skirt combo. The blazer, which is from Chanel's Pre-Fall 2022 collection, is parted at the sternum, with zigzag silver sequin detailing near the hem.

Meanwhile, Jourdan Dunn wore a Jean Paul Gaultier look that was as much sculpture as it was red carpet outfit. Her plunging black jumpsuit was belted at the bust (with a silver fastening, naturally), and worn under an oversized jacket that featured a spire in one shoulder. The British model has certainly peaked with this look.

Meanwhile, Leomie Anderson went full Studio 54 party girl in a shimmering chrome chainmail dress by The Attico.

All in all — it was a mirrorball moment. But if Margot Robbie was sick of pink by the end of her Barbie tour, we wonder if Bey is going to be done with silver soon.
