Beyoncé just made history at the 2018 Coachella as the first black woman to ever headline the music festival. And of course, she went ALL OUT with her performance—as she does in her concerts, as she does at awards shows, as she's done at the Super Bowl.
During her epic performance, Queen Bey sang some of her greatest hits, flipped her hair like there was no tomorrow, and gave '90s babies a mini heart attack after bring out Destiny's Child for a memorable show.
But if there was one thing people couldn't stop talking about it was her outfits. Seriously... just look at those boots!
You might have noticed that everything about Beyoncé's Coachella performance had to do with the colors black, gold, and yellow. Although they clearly represent the colors of a bee because she's Queen Bey, there's a special reason she rocked that combination.
According to Dani Kwateng-Clark, the content producer at Essence, "black and gold are the colors for the Alphas —the first black fraternity—because she's the first black woman to headline Coachella" —and yes, this makes total sense!
Founded in 1906, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity is the first African-American, intercollegiate Greek-lettered fraternity. Their colors are indeed old gold and black. Beyoncé also highlighted and celebrated step culture and historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) at Coachella.
Beyoncé's colors are black and yellow because of the bee motif and because she's QUEEN BEY. ALSO black and gold are the colors for the Alphas —the first black fraternity—because she's the first black woman to headline Coachella.— Dani Kwateng-Clark (@danikwateng) April 15, 2018

Y’all don’t even know. As a woman, as a black woman, as a southerner, as an HBCU grad, I just feel so full and represented. Thank you, Beyoncé.— #Fisetie La (@Ladidahdi) April 15, 2018
