Michael Costello is no rookie to designing for Beyonce. And after crafting his third costume for Bey’s On The Run Tour, he can definitely be considered a veteran in the fashion game. The star revealed her new Costello original in Baltimore during her performance of the hit record, “Single Ladies.”
Similar to Costello’s other designs, the ensemble is a sexy bodysuit with black and gold lace details. As we all know, “Single Ladies” is no calm and quiet number. There’s a lot of dancing and moving around, which is what inspired the designer to go for a flexible and “free” look.
“I wanted Beyoncé to feel beautiful, strong, super sexy and ventilated. I thought, ‘If I was Beyoncé how would I want to look and feel.’ I didn’t want her to feel overheated like she was in armor or too hot on stage during her performance. I wanted to create something very free and easy to dance in all while being sexy.”
And while this look may drop some jaws, especially on stage, it was constructed in little to no time at all.
“I had to create a look fast and Ty encouraged me, he said he didn’t want me to miss out on this opportunity. I made the look in two hours. I had that fabric for a long time and I wanted to use it specifically for Beyoncé.”
Costello said it came out exactly how he envisioned, and it’s definitely a drop-dead gorgeous piece. Check out a sketch of Michael Costello’s newest ensemble, and see if you can point out any more of his creations during the On The Run tour – in a city near you, now.
