"We Can Do It Too!"

Beyonce and Other Celebrities Dressed as Rosie the Riveter


Leave it to Beyonce to help us get through the workday by channeling one of America's most famous female cultural icons.

The Queen B  gave us all a little morale boaster Tuesday morning when she shared a photo of herself dressed as the Rosie the Riveter. Clad in the poster gal's signature red bandana and denim shirt, the "Run the World (Girls)" songstress was snapped flexing her bicep under a "We Can Do It!" sign to mimic the famed World War II painting.

The painting was originally created to up production and boast morale at Westinghouse Company's Midwest factories, but have since became a picture of female empowerment when it was rediscovered in the 1980s. [J. Howard Miller]

However, singing diva is not the only one promoting girl power through the Americana icon...

BFF Kelly Rowland, Kris Jenner and Pink have all gone Rosie at one point during their careers as well. Don't believe us? Check out the gallery above for more celebrities dressed as Rosie the Riveter!
