Contemporaries: Bionic Bey and The Boss

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles was deliberately styled to look like The Boss, Ms. Ross, in her Golden Globe nominated starring role as Deena Jones in Dreamgirls.

However, the star seemed to emulate Diana long before talks of Dreamgirls started.
Catapulted into stardom in the context iconic girl groups, both Ross and Knowles eventually broke out as solo stars and took command of the game.

Both have had their share of drama through group lineup changes, accusations of management favoritism/diva behavior and both have etched a place in history through their music, iconic style, and brands.

It is no secret that I hold these two divas close to my heart.
Below are pics I found of each. Watch the evolution of each and the similarities are striking.
