Beyoncé headlined the Coachella stage on Saturday night, and treated fans to the high-octane performance they'd been anticipating.
Performing all her greatest hits - including Crazy In Love, Single Ladies, Formation and Run The World (Girls) - Beyoncé switched between a series of costumes, changing from high-cut denim shorts and a yellow cropped hoodie, to bejewelled bodices and a full PVC ensemble.
All the outfits were custom designed by Olivier Rousteing for Balmain. "(Beyoncé) is a perfectionist,” Rousteing told Vogue.com. "She has such a distinct vision for fashion and for her music, I really learned a lot from this experience and from watching her work in those rehearsals."
Discussing the collaboration, Rousteing revealed it was a family affair: "Blue comes in and runs over to B, and B holds her in her arms while talking to us about the cuts and silhouettes. To me, it was just such a beautiful moment because here you are with this megastar but also, she is a strong woman and a loving momma to her daughter."
Among the night's most memorable moments were a number of guest appearances, including a reunion with her Destiny's Child bandmates - who, in a nod to their sartorial history, wore coordinating camouflage outfits - her husband Jay-Z and sister Solange.
"Coachella, thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline," she said, acknowledging the history-making moment. She also spoke of missing the previous year, when she'd been due to perform but postponed due to her pregnancy, and told the audience that the year had given her the opportunity to "dream" of what she'd do once she finally made it to the stage.
The set was streamed around the globe via YouTube - the first time Coachella has made its performances available live to viewers.
