Beyonce worked with stylist and costume designer Shiona Turini (the pair previously worked together on Beyonce’s 2016 Formation video), they sought to channel the album’s essence; party, ballroom, disco, and camp. There was this super camp custom Mugler bodysuit designed by Casey Cadwallader that resembled a bee (get it, queen bey) and a Balmain piece dripping in pearls (inspired by look 43 from F/W 23′) that personified those Alien Superstar lyrics “I got pearls beneath my legs, my lips, my hands, my hips.” Custom Loewe, David Koma, Alexander McQueen, Balmain, etc. — this tour rivals fashion month in its entirety.
