When Beyoncé required a dress code for her Renaissance Tour, fans, and yes, even celebrities happily complied. One particular TV star went above and beyond to obey the wardrobe requirements, though. Sophia Bush dusted off her wedding reception dress amid her divorce from Grant Hughes — it’s a fresh way to turn the narrative around on an article of clothing in your closet that has a heavy history.

Bush gave the outfit brand new memories as she leaned into the theme of the night and shared joyous snapshots from her night at the concert. Her face radiated with happiness as her disco-ball silver dress shined from every angle. She danced, posed, and had the time of her life with her friends— and of course, Beyoncé. “Speaking of @beyonce … the queen said ‘wear silver’ and we said ‘yes ma’am,’” Bush wrote in her caption.

While this was Beyoncé’s birthday night, the idea of a renaissance seemed to resonate deeply with Bush, who is divorcing Hughes after only a year of marriage. “She called her #Renaissance ‘a place to dream/escape/to feel free/adventurous/to create a safe place/without judgment/a place to be free/to scream/release/feel freedom/a beautiful journey/exploration.’ Can confirm 🐝,” she wrote. And as one fan cleverly noted from Bush’s One Tree Hill character, Brooke Davis, “Clothes Over Bros.” We couldn’t agree more!


Just because her silver dress was a part of her wedding doesn’t mean she can’t wear it again — and hopefully, Bush proved that to her followers with her bold fashion move. You change the emotions behind an outfit just by going out and having the time of your life with Beyoncé’s music, and opening yourself up to your own renaissance. It’s a badass idea!
