Beyonce is no stranger to wearing interesting, headline grabbing costumes on stage and last night she wore an outfit that may be her most controversial yet.
The singer’s outfit of choice for her opening night of the Mrs Cater tour in Belgrade was a gold bodysuit which was encrusted with gold sequins. It was designed to give the impression that it was see-through with Beyonce’s breasts and nipples on show for the audience. In fact it was cleverly designed by Emilio Pucci to look super sexy without actually showing anything.
The look of her stage costumes is very important to Beyonce and Pucci have designed all of her outfits for the Mrs Carter tour.
It is not the first time we have seen the singer in a bodysuit on stage but it is certainly the first time we have seen her sport a pair of faux nipples on an outfit.
Footwear is another of her passions and she has a separate designer for this to ensure she not only looks good but has the right fit to pull off all those special on-stage moves she is famed for. Stuart Weitzman is said to have designed around 50 separate pieces of footwear for Beyonce for the Mrs Carter tour and they will feature Swarovski crystals and have rubberized soles to enable her to keep on her feet during those energetic dance routines.
The worldwide Mrs Carter tour moves onto Croatia tomorrow night before making its way across Europe for some dates in London with 4 nights at the O2 between 29 April and 03 May.
After leaving the UK Beyonce then moves back into mainland Europe for some more dates before starting the US leg of the tour with a concert at LA’s Staples Center on 28 June. The US leg of the tour comes to an end on 05 August with a concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Her final date is actually on 13 September in Rio, Brazil at the Parque dos Atletas.
She is certainly back in the fashion spotlight once more as just before the Mrs Carter tour kicked off she was seen showing off her body in a selection of bikinis for H&M as they launched their new Summer Collection. The new collection is promised to be at the affordable end of the spectrum and will launch online and in-store next month.
