"In honor of Juneteenth, everything I wore for RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR tonight was created exclusively by Black designers," she wrote.

The looks included a red, beaded Ferragamo gown and a silver corseted bodysuit by Rousteing.

Juneteenth is a U.S. federal holiday that falls on June 19. The holiday celebrates the day in 1865 when enslaved Black people in Texas learned they were free under the Emancipation Proclamation, more than two years after it was signed by president Abraham Lincoln.

Beyoncé launched her Renaissance tour in May and will next perform Wednesday in Hamburg, Germany.

The tour is in support of the singer's album Renaissance, released in July 2022. The album features the singles "Break My Soul" and "Cuff It."
