B Gets What B Wants

If you’re a music and fashion fan, prepare for a double treat when Beyonce begins her world tour in March.

The singer announced today that world-renowned top designer, Thierry Mugler, will work as creative advisor and costume designer on the road.

Mugler, who’s also a photographer and director, will design approximately 58 costumes for the show.

This includes B’s outfits as well as those of her band, back-up singers and dancers.

Apparently, Beyonce became interested in collaborating with the top designer after seeing his seminal pieces first-hand at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” exhibit in New York in May 2008.

After subsequently studying the historical works in the Thierry Mugler archives in Paris, Beyonce selected the Mugler-designed clothing pieces, including an outfit from the “Too Funky” video, which is featured in the photo packaging for I AM…SASHA FIERCE.
