Beyoncé approaches Halloween like she does her albums and live performances, which is to say she goes all in. Over the weekend she showed off her "Phoni Braxton" outfit, a tribute to the iconic Toni Braxton including her leather jacket and bob. However, Bey wasn't done there.

On Halloween night, October 31, she showcased a sporty new look donning the purple and blue lycra leotard needed to portray Florence Griffith Joyner, better known as Flo-Jo. Despite competing mainly in the 1980s, Flo-Jo is still considered the fastest woman of all time as her 100m and 200m sprint records remain unbroken.

Beyoncé recreated two of the sprinter's looks both from the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. JAY-Z also got into the spirit of things, recreating Tommie Smith's iconic Black Panther salute delivered from the podium during a medal ceremony at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City.

Beyoncé and her husband JAY-Z recently completed their world tour On The Run II.
