When Beyonce’s The Mrs. Carter Show tickets went on sale, you did NOT want to be in our office. It. Was. Intense. (Lots of yelling.) Needless to say, we’re all really excited for Bey’s shows this summer, mostly because we cannot WAIT to see what Queen Bey is going to wear! We wagered a couple of guesses (based on Bey’s epic Thierry Mugler-costumed announcement images and her Rubin Singer leather look for the Super Bowl Halftime show), but it turns out neither of those looks were indicators of Bey’s complete tour steez. Grazia Daily reports the superstar has tapped red carpet fave Julien Macdonald to design her tour looks. The UK designer has created performance outfits for Beyonce before, including her 2011 Good Morning America appearance (above) and 2013 New Year’s Eve performance in Las Vegas.
Do we know for sure that Macdonald is designing ALL of the looks for Beyonce’s tour? No. Details are still hazy, and for an undertaking as massive as the Mrs. Carter tour, we can’t imagine that all of the responsibility will be on one designer’s shoulders. Will there be a little bit of Thierry, a little Rubin Singer, a little Julien Macdonald, and a whole lot of other designers in between? We’ll just have to wait and see!
