Beyoncé looks stunning on date night with Jay-Z at Idris Elba's film premiere

Singing superstar Beyoncé looked incredible on a date night with Jay-Z in the capital.

The glamorous pair put on all their finery for the premiere of Netlfix's The Harder They Fall at the BFI London Film Festival.

The Bonnie & Clyde stars looked radiant as they posed for a pic in the back of their chauffeur-driven car with Bey stunning in a strapless black dress.

The star snuggled up to her husband, who himself looked dashing in a black tux and bow tie.

The jet-setting were in town for the premiere of Idris Elba's new film The Harder They Fall - described as a 'crowd-pleasing western', which was produced by Jay-Z, Idris and Regina King.

Beyoncé took a number of snaps at the event, including one of her on a golden staircase looking every inch the movie star sporting a pair of shades with her blonde locks styled to perfection.

Captioning one of her pics with: "Thank God I didn't go to sleep," followed by a laughing emoji, Bey's posts were met with a flurry of approval from her fans.

One said: "The queen of the universe."

While another posted: "Thank you for this blessing, queen."

Beyoncé celebrated her 40th birthday last month amassing four decades of show-stopping entertainment.

With chart-topping albums, iconic singles and enough awards to fill rooms full of cabinets, the singer has certainly made her mark on the world - but it hasn't always been plain sailing for her and Jay Z.

Beyoncé and husband Shawn Carter – aka 51-year-old self-made billionaire businessman and rap icon Jay-Z – are one of the world’s most iconic couples.

The pair first started dating in 2002 when they collaborated on Jay’s single 03 Bonnie & Clyde – before cementing their romance in Bey’s track, Crazy In Love.

The couple tied-the-knot in 2008, but while the duo are regarded as being one of the most rock solid couples in the celeb world, their romance has been sullied with rumours of Jay having an affair.

Beyoncé track Lemonade told the story of a woman realising her significant other was having a torrid affair before booting him out, getting revenge and ultimately learning how to forgive.

It is also speculated that the infamous ‘elevator incident’ which saw Beyoncé casually standing back while her younger sister, Solange, lashed out at Jay in a lift in 2014 was also related to his infidelity.

The rapper made a series of apologises on his album, but came clean during an interview with The New York Times.

"You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions,” Jay-Z told editor Dean Baquet, as he blamed his tough upbringing.

“So even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect. In my case, like, it’s deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity," he admitted.
