Another Fashion Credit for Beyonce’s Tour: The Blonds!
And the designer credits keep on rolling in!
In addition toDSquared2, Pucci, and Stuart Weitzman, Beyonce will wear The Blonds during her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. This isn't the first time the design duo created a custom look for Mrs. Carter. In the past, The Blonds have dressed the singer several times, for her “Upgrade U” video, for promo shots for 4's album packaging, and for several different performances. This time around, they were inspired by Polish Art Deco artist Tamara de Lempicka's paintings of the female body. “It is also meant to give the illusion of being covered in crystallized honey,” Phillip Blond said in a press release. “It was a close collaboration with Beyonce, Tina Knowles, and Ty Hunter [her stylist] to finish what would become one of the most glamorous and provocative looks that she's ever worn.”
That may be a bit of an understatement, Phillip, considering the suit, which was hand embroidered with 30,000 Swarovski crystals, (that took over 600 hours to apply) looks like, er, faux female anatomy.
