Beyonce as Toni Braxton

  • Kimocha

    She nailed it!... Love It!

  • SemajBeyPhilly

    Is Lil Kim dead? I could’ve sworn I just seen Kim performing on Twitter. Oh nvm, Sandra trolling again.

  • NoneW0rks

    Very pretty!

  • SpiceGirl

    She did that! I see ya Bey

  • LivingLife_BeingPositive

    Love it !!!!

  • Bossy704

    Makes me wonder if she can sing Toni's songs. Good job though!

  • SemajBeyPhilly

    She looked amazing. Bey dressed up as an ICON.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Best Toni Braxton cover

  • Kimocha

    Yes... She looks amazing!

  • xenaD

    She did that! O yes even Toni was like yasss girl! But Toni said beyonce looked better than her... she dragged it but I get where she was going lol

  • tia

    Toni is definitely a legend. That's what you call being humble and putting "respect" on someone's name. Acknowledging those before you and giving honor and credit where it is due. It's not hard to do!

    Good for you Bey !


    My girl ATE it. Nicki takes notes since you call yourself queen ?

  • Ni Ni

    Makes me wonder if she can sing Toni's songs.
    Uh, no ma'am.

  • tia

    This particular act right here makes Nicki Minaj look even more "catty". It's room for everyone and does not cost a thing to acknowledge and lift up others.

  • Logan Roberts


  • Ni Ni

    She did good. Favors a young Tisha Martin or Lisa Fischer

  • Rere

    It was cool


    Man. So many childhood memories off that album ?

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Nice job! I just wanna shout out her amazing team, alot of times the celebs get all the credit, but trust me they couldn't pull half of shyt they do off without their team!!!

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    Both Artist have their own unique voices and sounds....Toni wouldn't be able to sing Beyonce's songs either ,,it's about respect.

  • tia

    I hear you !! Yes indeed!!

  • FukkFolks2018


  • FukkFolks2018

    I had my hair cut like this for legit 2-3 years. Toni is a legend.

  • Tee


  • tia

    You are absolutely on the money. Cardi B is a good example of your statement. She's not a bad looking women. But her team comes through and works magic on her. Well said!

  • tia

    me too with the cut. During this time Toni, Nia and Halle had it going on with the pixies. I'm natural now, but I still crave those cuts!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    She NAILED IT!

  • Pitty Patty

    It wasn't until I cut my hair off like this that I really really saw myself. When my beautician turned me around in the chair it was like looking at a new person. There was nothing to rely on but my face! Couldn't tell me NOTHING chile...

    Shout out to Bey for honoring Toni. Toni is a legend no doubt...

  • Dr. P

    She slayed it.

  • Greatgrape37

    She's done that a million times. I'm sick of hearing regurgitated lies about her smh.

  • sunni_daze

    Lil Kim not dead though.

  • Victorious82

    Alright Beyonce ?????? She nailed it!!

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Shout out to Nakia, one of Bey's hairstylists, whom I personally know (in my Kcool voice).

  • Alextra Ballard

    Toni should be proud...Gon Bey!

  • Alextra Ballard


  • Vonn

    Bey looks good!! Saw Toni's Twitter post saying that she thinks Bey looks better than she did on her album cover. Girl Power!!

  • Renee26

    Cute... I love it!!

  • Renee26


  • Vonn


  • Blue

    Toni Braxton, living legend.

  • Vonn

    I'm about to play this as I clean.

  • MsVAllDay

    Nailed it!

  • MsVAllDay

    LOL I thought the same thing! OH the slick shade.

  • Kanyade


  • Kanyade

    Fun fun! I didn't dress up this year. Great album. Also, Toni's sophomore effort was another great one.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    She phoni alright but mrs cheating camel always had the type of face that can rock any style. Why she insist on wearing hay on her head is beyond me

  • Torae

    Toni looked better...but Beyoncé tried it and looks okay but more like Tisha Campbell.

  • Miss Thang

    I wish Beyonce would actually change her image up a bit with different hair color and cut. How is she not sick of looking at herself with the same look for 20 years?

  • January Jones

    Phoni Braxton!!!! LOL

  • Miss Thang

    so many people got this haircut at this time :) hot :)

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    It was ok...minimal effort just a short wig with a tank and a fake backdrop...I liked the Lil Kim one last year this year it looked like Bey was just playing in Momma Tina's wig closet...

  • Music

    That would be interesting to hear. Toni’s singing voice is very deep. Beyonce’s speaking voice is deep, but it’s hard to imagine her singing as deeply as Toni. Plus, Toni sort of mumbles whenever she sings, and we know Beyonce is the queen of being loud, and is not about to mumble.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Bey looks so beautiful. I love her and we all know can’t no one do that picture like Toni herself.


    Because she paid lots of money not to. #loreal

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Hov is the real winner and mvp , Beyonce is the baddest woman alive and does it without being naked.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Spot on

  • DaughterOfaQueen


  • Quitedeliteful

    Soda pop singer Beyonce


    Cute!!! Great Job as always Beyonce.
    She did little kim one year, perhaps it was the old kim face but Kim is not dead.

  • free

    it's close but the wig is throwing me off. when we gon go back to the "toni braxton" and the "halle berry" haircuts?

  • free

    i had it too! combining color with perm to soon led me to it but that was a baaddd haircut! i loved it; no maintenance.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Bouncey looks good. Good choice for a costume.

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Rayne

    Nice! Toni is and was that hump shidd ?

  • Sassie

    I actually like this. She did a great job....Toni is my girl, so I'm glad she done it RIGHT!!

  • Sassie

    Beyonce STAY damn near naked in those barely there leotards she's constantly wearing...quit playing. But she still did this Toni "costume" some justice.

  • Sassie

    I've been saying that for 20 years....I can't IMAGINE having the same style day in and day out for that long. My GOD.

  • MrsHBC

    I’m not a Beyonce stan, however, she did her thing with this look. Now, I am a big Toni Braxton fan!

  • C0rTnEy

    You play teewww much sis ????

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Love it! Toni Braxton is a legend.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Is that yew LL?

  • Shawty

    She did good with that!

  • Brown & Proud

    Now if only Bey could make music half as good as that album is, id actually be a fan. Toni is the ish, that album is classic.

  • Solstice

    ?? Between the “Soda pop singer” and the “Phony Braxton” titled cover I could not even read the post!! LMMFAO!! ???? Why??!!? Why must you do this to me Sandra?!?! ??????

  • Fire & Ice

    I loved that album! Spending my time with you and I belong to you was on heavy rotation for me. This was her best album.

  • Fire & Ice

    Loreal has paid her mega bucks, to keep a certain look. I heard years ago that her contract with them was very tight. She can't really deviate from a certain look.

  • Logan Roberts

    Does she dress like that off stage or nah? ?

  • Applebootay


  • Applebootay



    See that's that ish! What in Jesus' name do u mean "can't really deviate!?" Celeb life is not for everyone, and I can proudly say I'm one of the "everyone." I understand branding, promotions, etc., but my goodness u mean to tell me if this lady wanted to rock a full head of green hair, there goes a BIG endorsement! *Rhetorical question* We pay u, U jump when we say "J-U....." Life is good, but could "the normal" get with such stipulations! I'd be out of my deals within 8hrs.....I can barely sit still all day at work!

  • Miss3rdWard

    Right?! Loved these cuts... I rocked every cut Halle had all through high school. Would love to do it again... guess I'd have to do a weave though cause I don't do relaxers anymore.

  • Trace da Ace

    she did good....but for real Aunty @ Soda Pop singer....LMBAO!!!! I canna with you on this warm Halloween day!!

  • Trace da Ace


  • Miss Thang

    Secrets was the first CD I ever owned.

  • bran


  • Junkanoo

    not very imaginative typical of Beyonce, over rated and underwhelming

  • CocoBabe88


  • NaeNae2015

    Trying to figure out is "Soda Pop" singer is a promotion from Cabaret singer......Nobody throws shade like Sandrarose!!!! LOL!!

  • Judge Mental Will

    If she would've got Michelle and kelly they could've been PHONI PHONY PHONE ??

  • Fire & Ice

    You out huh ???. Yeah that's too much. They dictate everything for those dollars.

  • GrapeCrush

    She looks good!! Toni actually posted this on her IG page and was quite flattered! Beyonce did her right! I love both ladies! ???

  • GrapeCrush


  • SumthinSweeter

    I know Tamar is SUPER jealous/envious of this since that was who she was trying to kitty cat up behind when she 1st came out. And for the stans...smh, when their Queen pays homage they go extra dumb & looney asf for her. Cute costume though.

  • SumthinSweeter

    LMAOOOoooooo... ok, come thru then with the Martin Lawrence tea's.

  • SumthinSweeter

    all facts. timeless and still in rotation.

  • speakinmymind

    @Monique, Nailed Kcool's ol braggin ass!???

  • Strappyheels

    I bumped it from beginning to end for years.. It rarely moved out of my 5 CDdisc changer.

  • dontgetblocked

    She will NEVER be Ms. Toni! Look at Toni's face and then look at Fakeyonce. Enough said.

  • Fire & Ice

    I know the feeling. It really was that kind of album. You could listen from beginning to end.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    It's funny as hell to me that everybody knows exactly what's going on??

  • Jussjess25


  • Jussjess25

    Beyondfake always does the most. ??

  • Jussjess25

    Yes tamar wants to be her so bad its really sad

  • Jussjess25

    ????????? phony bleached up phony


    She looks beautiful as always just like the real Diva. Best costume..

  • Malcom Flex

    I like her Halloween costumes.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Beyoncé brought it, one of the absolute best I’ve seen this Halloween!

    The 90s, when music really told love stories and cautionary tales, Toni Braxton, a one-of-a-kind!

    Kudos to Mrs. Carter, VERY impressive!

  • MadGyalGem

    Cute!!! She nailed it.

  • okiseethisthatdumbshit

    this halloween custom was shady as hell
