Beyoncé Announces Topshop Line: A Look at Her 21 Best Leotards

Could this finally be the push we need to incorporate Bey's signature garment into our streetwear looks?

And finally, the apotheosis of Beyoncé's career in leotard-wearing: the Lifetime Achievement Leotard. This multi-colored, metallic number has an almost religious aspect to it, thanks to the stained-glass effect of the multicolored gems embedded throughout. Bey wore it during her epic performance at the 2014 VMAs, then received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award in it. This leotard is great for dabbing away your tears of joy while your perfect husband and perfect child present you with a similar accolade. (Photo by ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images)

It’s official: Beyoncé and Topshop are working on an activewear line together, which they announced earlier today with a press release.

Philip Green, the owner of Topshop parent company Arcadia, told British Vogue this will be more of a partnership than a collaboration; a whole new team will be hired to run the Beyoncé line. It will consist of “active streetwear,” kind of like Alexander Wang’s line for H&M or Cara Delevingne’s DKNY range.

Now, Beyoncé can rock a red carpet gown and off-duty jorts with the best of them. But chances are, when you hear the name “Beyoncé,” you picture her in a bejeweled leotard, her preferred garment for performing, with her hair blowing in the breeze thanks to a permanently-switched-on wind machine.

It’s tough to imagine a Beyoncé clothing line devoid of her favorite performance-wear, the leotard. Her range will have to include one or two. Therefore, this could be the final push we need to incorporate everyone’s favorite crotched-but-leg-less garment, the leotard, into our workout and streetwear routines.

Click on for a look at Beyoncé’s most triumphant bodysuits, which we hope will be replicated in some way in her collection, and get ready to drop some dough on a leo of your own when the collection hits stores sometime next year.
