Remember how we deduced from Tina Knowles’ interview with Grazia Daily that Beyonce’s wardrobe for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour might be constantly subject to change? Welp, Miss Tina did not steer us wrong. The second leg of King Bey’s international tour just hit stateside in sunny Los Angeles this weekend, and just as we had anticipated, there were a few sartorial surprises. Tried and true costumes got updates (peep the extra embellishment on the bridal bodysuit!) and Bey bestowed unto her backup dancers some new looks, too!
The brand new outfits (and sketches) we’ve seen so far come courtesy of up-and-coming Israeli designer Alon Livné who first put together the gorgeous red gown with massive waist-high slits which Bey wears for “Standing On The Sun” (of H&M commercial fame). The new dresses match Beyonce’s in their seriously leg-baring cut but are rendered in mottled watercolors, all the better for King Bey to stand out in that red number. But that’s not the only trick up Livné’s sleeve for Mrs. Carter’s U.S. shows. The designer revealed to Style.com that he has also created a Swarovski encrusted scarlet corset for the tour as well as matching versions for her dancers. The new looks have yet to be worn IRL but you can peep the sketch and Livné’s interview about it at Style.com.
