This year for Halloween, Beyoncé channeled the “Un-Break My Heart” singer and R&B legend Toni Braxton.

On Tuesday night, Beyoncé introduced herself as “Phoni Braxton” in an Instagram post of her recreation of Braxton’s self-titled 1993 album.

“Sending love and adoration to one of our talented legends. Thank you for the countless bops. Your tone, your beauty, your range, and your God-given talent is treasured. Loving you always. Have a Happy Halloween my Kings and Queens,” she wrote.

Beyoncé recreated Braxton’s exact look from her debut album, from the pixie cut wig to the leather jacket and tank top, and even to the gold accessories, makeup, and nails. 

After Braxton discovered that she was Beyoncé Halloween inspiration, she took to Twitter to thank the “Crazy In Love” singer. 

Fans also shared their love and excitement for Beyoncé Halloween tribute to Braxton on Twitter.

This is the second year in a row that Beyoncé has had a singer-inspired costume. Last year for Halloween, she dressed up as Lil’ Kim with five different looks inspired by the rapper’s career. Jay-Z also joined in by dressing up and paying tribute to Biggie Smalls. 


In 2016, Beyoncé costume was inspired by Salt-N-Peppa, and two years before that she dressed up as the music icon, Janet Jackson while her daughter Blue Ivy dressed up as Michael Jackson.

In past years, Beyoncé has done more than one costume and shares them days after Oct. 31, so there may be more in store for fans as they await the next few days to come.
