On September 4, 1981, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles was born—and the world instantly became a better place. In honor of Mrs. Carter's 34th year of winning at life, we've rounded up some of her most memorable moments wearing local designers.

1. Michael Costello for the 2014 Grammys (pictured above). Bey's stylist Ty Hunter discovered Michael Costello via—where else?—social media. "Michael ended up being an Instagram follower of mine," Hunter tells E! News. "I followed him back, and his designs were beautiful." Instead of commissioning Costello to create a custom design, Hunter spotted this stunning white dress at the studio and instantly knew it was the one.

2. Jen's Pirate Booty for her music video, "Blue." Although JPB's Janis Tunic is sold out in white, it's still available in lilac for $115 here.

3. Lovers + Friends while on vacation. The $48 Tiger muscle tee is sadly out of stock, but we're sure you can find something similar during the brand's major sale here.

4. Mikoh Swimwear on her Tumblr page. Bey opted for the $108 Sumatra top and $62 Snapper Rock Sarong.

5. Harlyn while on vacation in Miami. Although we couldn't find an exact color match, at least the brand's $48 bustier top is available in a goes-with-everything white.

6. Joyrich for her music video, "7/11." Sadly, that badass $141 Playboy checkered sweater is sold out, but we're sure Bey will be spotted in one of the brand's other fall-ready options soon enough.
