You only have to take one look at some of the costumes and outfits Beyonce wears on the big stage, to know that a lot of time and effort has gone into making them, and that is most certainly the case for her sexy body suit on Formation tour. The legendary Julien MacDonald is the man responsible for designing to stunning outfit and Julien has admitted that it took over three weeks to make.
Talking about working with Beyonce, MacDonald said, "I work with Beyoncé on her outfits over Skype - it's kind of funny like 'Hey, how are you?!' But you know, she's very opinionated about what she wants. She said to me: 'I want you to think of Africa, and something I could wear dancing to an African beat'. It's a bodysuit with about 30,000 black caviar Swarovski crystals."
He added, "The imagery on the body itself is taken from African tattoos and body paint, and then it's got a silk and Swarovski fringe. It takes up to 3 weeks to create something like this - night and day working on it. Sometimes I can make her things and never know what she'll be wearing it for - like the BET awards, which was top secret. I thought it was for the tour, but then they kept asking me questions of how to treat it if it got wet. I was watching it on TV and I fell off my chair like 'Wow, she's got it on!'"
The particular black outfit that took over three weeks to make featured around 30,000 caviar Swarovski crystals, as well as also having a silk and Swarovski fringe detail around the sleeves of the arms of the costume. It was clearly well worth the time, effort and money, as Beyonce looked absolutely great in it.
