So, if you’ve been living under a rock for the past three months, you’ve probably escaped the news that Beyoncé is doing another world tour. That O2 ad with the awful song has been plaguing our televisions for way too long now and its only about to get worse when she starts on the Mrs Carter world tour this week!
What we can love in the video is the fantastic theatrical outfit Beyoncé has on in the video, very Marie Antoinette and Parisian! Long gone are the days when we had our favourite acts prancing around on stage wearing hideous cheap outfits like PVC or pastel matching numbers (see everything Steps wore…ahh the 90s!).
It has been revealed this week that the designers behind this fabulous look are none other than DSquared2 – lucky lady! Twins Dean and Dan Caten, the geniuses behind the Italian brand are custom-making an outfit for Jay-Z’s better half for he upcoming world tour. They aren’t revealing anything about the outfit yet but a spokesperson has said that the outfit will be a ‘show-stopper’ and will be in line with their Spring/Summer 2013 collection, very reminiscent of 90s supermodels.
The spokesperson said, “Beyoncé chooses to wear a unique outfit created exclusively for her by Dean and Dan Caten, inspired by an item from the 2013 spring/summer Glamazon catwalk show”.
DSquared2 are known for their spectacular catwalk shows in the past – with recreations of festival grounds, a high-school dance and an underground rave – the perfect scene for their amazing collections.
Beyoncé collaborating with DSquared2 is a shrewd move for both parties, one being the biggest global superstar in the world right now and the other, an innovative design team that fly just under the radar enough to be extra-desirable. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing how this partnership turns out and to get a glimpse of this ‘show-stopping’ number.
The Mrs Carter tour begins in Belgrade, Serbia on April 15 and finishes on August 5 in Brooklyn, her husband’s hometown.
