Beyonce and Jay Z launched their highly anticipated On the Run Tour last night (June 25) in Miami, and it's already looking to be the jaw-dropping '03 '14 Bonnie & Clyde spectacular we've been dreaming of all our lives. Aside from nailing their staggering 42-song setlist, Mr. and Mrs. Carter dominate the stage in some of the steamiest performance outfits we've seen in a WHILE.

The power couple kicked things off with their famous duet "'03 Bonnie and Clyde." Jay Z wore an American flag tee, beanie, and shades, while Bey bared all in a fishnet ski mask and Atelier Versace bodysuit. We can only imagine how excited the audience felt to see Beyonce walk towards them, and then how EXTRA excited they felt when she walked away from them (ya know, seeing as the back of the bodysuit is essentially a leather thong...).

It's been a while since we saw Ariana Grande perform in anything other than black and white, but last night at the 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards she broke out some major sequins. Goodbye monochrome, hello sparkle. Ariana performed "Problem" in a matching crop top and skirt with her hair lookin' quite voluminous in its perma half-up/half-down 'do. She did, however, bring one element from her mod "Problem" looks with her to Canada—dem boots!

Can you imagine being charged with inspiring and entertaining 400,000 people AND looking fabulous AF while doing it? Well, that's exactly what Demi Lovato's duties as Grand Marshall of the L.A. Pride Parade entailed, and she made it look like the most fun and natural job in the world.

During the Sunday afternoon festivities, Demi sang and danced while crowds flooded the streets to cheer her on. Her performance of "Really Don't Care" was energetic and upbeat, but her black suit gave off something a bit more serious (and borderline S&M).

Bowie's done it. Little Richard's done it. Kurt Cobain, too. Glam rock was essentially built on dudes pushing boundaries in clothing, hairstyles, and yes, even makeup more typical of the female set, and that, in turn, influenced other genres like shock rock, hair metal, new romanticism, and goth, to name a few. Gender-bending style has long been the provenance of rock and rollers, played mostly for either laughs or simply to shock the normies, but these days, you're slightly more likely to see a rapper in womenswear.

Rap, much like heavy metal, is a historically hyper-masculine genre of music, so it's refreshing to see men in the hip-hop industry wear clothing that isn't gender-specific simply because (a) they like it and (b) do you really need another reason? Let's take a look at our favorite MCs bucking conventional clothing stereotypes.

Jay Z was spotted in a Rodarte jersey in New York while hanging out with the Queen Bey herself. Fairly innocuous right? It looks just like a football jersey, but it's from a line best known for its ability to blend esoteric themes of "prettiness" with unconventional subject matters like Japanese horror movies (see: the Fall 2008 collection). As it stands, you can purchase it on Shopbop for $405. You could have worse role models than the Jigga Man.

Miley Cyrus

While we've become accustomed to seeing Miley Cyrus in leotards and sequins, we love to see her sophisticated side step forward every so often. Remember the gorgeous vintage Jean Paul Gaultier dress she wore the the Bambi Awards last year? That's what we're talking about. Welp, we got our wish (again)! At the 2014 World Music Awards last night, our girl covered up and glammed out in two different gowns—and she looked better than ever.

Miley wore a strapless Giambattista Valli dress to perform her hit "Wrecking Ball." She looked SO ethereal and ladylike in the floral-print frock, we can hardly even remember the song's completely nude music video (JK, #neverforget).

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea is mad for plaid, y'all. She kicked it off with her Clueless-inspired "Fancy" video (although she wore the pattern several times before then), and we've been tracking her recent preppy tendencies ever since. More specifically, Iggy has built upon the Cher Horowitz yellow plaid look in several of her live performances, and she debuted a new version of the ensemble on Dancing With the Stars last night—an adorably retro prom dress.

Miley Cyrus

Just when we were getting used to all the new pieces in Miley Cyrus' Bangerz Tour wardrobe, she goes and adds a new look. Miley posted photos on Instagram (while on stage, natch) wearing a monochrome eye print. We immediately recognized the print as Kenzo—though the eyes on Miley's pieces have much lusher lashes than those on the Fall 2013 collection—but we couldn't figure out from the picture what the eyes were printed on. And then it hit us: They're custom.

Miley Cyrus, Wayne Coyne

A few days ago, Miley Cyrus posted a picture on Instagram of her feet covered with sequins and the words "Dirty Hippy" with absolutely no context. We just assumed she was up to one of her typically crazy antics (it would rank among Miley's tamer moves, TBH). But after watching Miley and the Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne perform "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" at tonight's Billboard Awards, those glammed up toesies make a lot more sense.

Iggy Azalea, Charli XCX

At this point, Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX have performed "Fancy" together a bunch of times. Though they've matched in monochrome, brought back their Clueless-inspired video outfits, and most recently, wore their own personal preferences (Iggy in a Scarface romper and Charli in all white), they hadn't yet hit the stage in identical outfits until tonight at the Billboard Music Awards.

Both Iggy and Charli were decked out in plaid cheerleading-inspired looks that were a little more ~rebellious~ than they were preppy/sporty. The ladies even matched their hair and makeup with long, undone waves and bold red lips. If they were the captains of the cheerleading squad at my school, I'd definitely join the team.

When we last saw Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX performing their smash hit “Fancy” they had ditched their Clueless-themed outfits for mod ones. Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the pair tried out yet another look when they delivered the song. We got to see Iggy’s Scarface-inspired tour wardrobe up close—the singer wore a brand new black-and-white romper featuring a sketch of an iconic image from the movie. Iggy kept her beauty look low-key with a red lip, as did her partner Charli XCX.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
