Beyoncé has rocked some epic Halloween costumes like Barbie, Lil Kim and Frida Kahlo, but this year is our favorite. For her second costume this year (after a Toni Braxton look) fit Beyoncé as Olympian Florence Griffith Joyner. (Try this Beyoncé-inspired dance workout.)
She copied the clothes that Griffith Joyner wore at the 1988 US Olympics to a tee. The Apeshit singer wore Flo-Jos's magenta one-legged Adidas tracksuit and bib, studs and orange-colored nails.

He dressed as Tommie Smith, an Olympic champion who won a gold medal in the men's 200-meter meters in 1
When you hear Griffith Joyner for the first time, here's a short story: In 1988, she became the fastest woman in the world, breaking the world records for the 100-meter and 200-meter mark. Meter race. She still has both, although she died in 1998. She is also known as one of the best-dressed Olympians to this day. She'd crossed the finish line, wearing jewelry, six-inch nails, and even a white lace tracksuit.
Twitter unanimously agreed to Beyoncé's costume choice. Many people are thrilled that their younger fans are being introduced to the legendary athlete. (See: Swing Up Your Sweat-Induced Endorphin with a 1980s Pop Workout Playlist.)
We hope the one-legged tracksuit is making a comeback now …
