12 Times Beyoncé Rocked African-Inspired Wax Print and Slayed

Here are 12 times Beyoncé rocked African-inspired wax print fashion and slayed.

Beyoncé really loves wax print.


The superstar has rocked the popular African-inspired textile in her own unique way on a number of occasions, and she's managed to slay the look just about every time.

Most recently, she donned a blue and orange tie-up skirt, by Brooklyn-based fashion brand Demestik, for her African-themed "Carter Push Party." She's worn the style throughout her pregnancy and long before then too—like we said before: the queen loves her wax print.

Below, we take a look at some of Beyoncé's best wax print ensembles. Enjoy!

Her ankara pregnancy style has been top notch.
