Unlike her Anjel bandmate Le Toya, now 35, refused to give up on the dream of a successful singing career.
In December 1999, La Tavia and Le Toya left the group - over rows with Beyonce's dad, and the band's manager, Matthew Knowles. La Tavia, now 35, returned home to Houston and later decided to try her luck as an actor.
La Tavia is now a main cast member in R&B Divas: Atlanta, alongside fellow singers Angie Stone, Keke Wyatt and Meelah of 702.
In early 2000 the original group members La Tavia and Le Toya left the group and were replaced with Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin.
Five months after joining Farrah left and Destiny's Child as we know and love them were born.
Beyoncé's mother Tina owned a popular hair salon in Houston, Texas in the '90s and obviously, Beyoncé was a regular there.
Having her mom do your hair every day must have been really nice as it meant she pretty much never had any bad hair days — and according to When Destiny's Child started becoming popular everyone immediately noticed that the girls not only looked great but also had very cool matching looks going on.
They went on to form a group which was originally named Girl's Tyme - and would become one of the best-selling girl bands of all time.
The original line-up was a four-piece, including Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, La Tavia and Le Toya Luckett. When La Tavia and Le Toya left Destiny's Child, they formed a new band called Anjel - but their album was almost immediately shelved.
Don't get us wrong, Beyoncé always looked amazing, but we do have a feeling that all the matching looks she was required to wear with the group made her suppress her own fashion choices.
Once she started dating Jay-Z and her solo career kicked off, her style got much riskier and hotter.
The girl always knew how to smize, there's no doubt about that.
