Beyoncé could disappear from Instagram for a week and it would feel like a year to us, so you could imagine the anxiety we've been having since she vanished from the social media platform for the last couple of months. Thankfully, Queen Bey has decided to grace us with her winning style yet again, and she made her glorious return by showing off a spring-ready ensemble in a new post.

In her slideshow, the “Love on Top” singer looked ready for a park promenade à la Bridgerton with a purple, floral-covered maxi dress from Paco Rabanne, which had gathered fabric on one side and a long slit along her left leg. (And you can get the same dress just with a higher neckline from FarFetch here).

The flowery design was paired with a set of matching dress gloves, bangles layered over the gloves and a set of black, strappy leather sandals from Alexander McQueen. Celebrity stylist KJ Moody put together the outfit.

Fellow celebs showed their excitement for Beyoncé's return, like British designer Hayden Williams, who commented, “Where ya been Queen??” The official page for Paco Rabanne also left a purple heart emoji in the comments. Meanwhile, fans showed their love, like one user who said, “IVE MISSED YOUUUUU.”

Prior to her Instagram hiatus, Beyoncé had been seriously killing the fashion game. From corset top and jean shorts combos to tennis-ball colored dresses, the “Crazy in Love” singer was on a hot streak with her outfits. In her final post before taking a break from the app, Queen Bey sported a sparkly Celia Kritharioti gown from their SS22 collection.

We're glad to see you back, Bey.
