With a career spanning nearly two decades, as a member of Destiny’s Child, two-time Super Bowl halftime show performer and a multi-platinum recording artist with a knack for releasing visual albums, Beyonce has been at the forefront of pop culture as long as many of us can remember. In honor of Queen Bey's 35th birthday, here are 35 of her most flawless Instagram photos.
