Beyoncé Exhibit to Debut at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Beyoncé Exhibit

Beyoncé is taking her place among legends. The pop powerhouse is getting her own fashion exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in a section previously reserved for Hall of Famers.

Outfits from Queen Bey’s personal collection will be showcased in the museum’s Legends of Rock section, alongside iconic pieces from Michael Jackson, David Bowie, and Bruce Springsteen.

The exhibit will feature Beyoncé’s Gareth Pugh gold dress from the “Run the World (Girls)” video, the black leotard and Lorraine Schwartz titanium glove from the “Single Ladies” video, and J Brand Denim shorts and red Stuart Weitzman pumps from the “Crazy In Love” video.

Other items include Beyoncé’s mermaid gown from the 2012 Met Gala, the rhinestone-covered top from the Dangerously in Love album cover, and leather and lace bodysuit, skirt, and jacket from the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

“We felt that [Beyoncé] really needed to take her rightful place alongside Aretha Franklin and the Supremes and Janis Joplin,” said Rock Hall curator Meredith Rutledge-Borger. “Rock and roll has an intergenerational appeal and we want to make sure we’re hitting all the right notes and keeping up with what’s happening today and what’s legendary today.”

According to the AP, the 32-year-old singer will be eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame as a member of Destiny’s Child in 2022 and as a solo artist in 2027.

The exhibit opens Tuesday, July 22, in the Ahmet Ertegun Main Exhibit Hall in Cleveland, Ohio.

    LEGENDARY, ICONIC, INCOMPARABLE! Congrats B for making history … “her own fashion exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in a section previously reserved for Hall of Famers”. The Hall of Fame really needs to reconsider it’s restrictions in terms of longevity. Should someone 5 years in the game be considered, absolutely NOT. But someone 17 years in the game who’s outselling everyone (Katy, Miley, Rihanna, Madonna, Mariah, etc … no shade but it’s true) ABSOLUTELY!

    “This is the first time that an artist that has not yet been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is being featured in the Legends of Rock exhibit.”

    If I wanted to see Mugler , I would visit a fashion exhibition.
    I don’t need a Beyonce to introduce me to something that she highjacked!
    Most of all NOT in a Rock and Roll Hall of fame!
    Bye girl!

    @gagging, ooohh, someone doesn’t approve someone of being recognized, because their fave is too lazy.

    Beyoncé hijacked? Give examples and maybe you’ll actually have a good point & brains.

    @Major Sushi,
    I agree with gagging on this.
    If someone desrves a fashion exhibition in a rock & Roll hall of fame it is David Bowie , Grace Jones or Björk …or maybe even MJ and Madonna!
    They all were the first in what they did!
    No Mugler leftovers!
    #basicbitches.
    You all have no clue what you are talking about.
    Most of her fans have a big mouth and a small brain!
    That is why she writes the lyrics she writes!
