Beyoncs highly-anticipated visual album Black Is King dropped today on Disney+ and the superstar has the fashion industry swooning. Incorporating the music of last summers The Lion King: The Gift, the 85-minute film was created as a celebratory memoir on the Black experience and an homage to the breadth and beauty of Black ancestry. As one would expect, this isnt your average history lesson  the 24-time Grammy Award-winning artist delivered this powerful message through a high-fashion lens and gave the world sartorial gold.

With the help of her long-time stylist, Zerina Akers, Beyoncs wardrobe packs a punch with a mix of industry heavyweights like Balmain, Valentino, and Burberry, as well as a pool of incredible Black designers like D.Bleu.Dazzled, Loza Malombho and Dviant La Vie. The film also features a number of exciting star-studded cameos from Kelly Rowland, Lupita Nyongo, Naomi Campbell, and even Blue Ivy who wears a vibrant Mugler outfit to match her mother.

In a candid Instagram caption this week, Beyonc described the film as a labor of love; a passion project that she filmed, researched and edited around the clock over the last year. Through an impressive lineup of looks, the artist and her creative team hope to present Black history and African tradition with a modern twist and a universal message.

Below, a compilation of Beyoncs best fashion moments from Black Is King.
