DSquared2 shared the sketches of Beyonce's looks for the opening number, created byDean and Dan Catenfor her and all 20 of her dancers. The designers dished about the Victorian goth look:
“We are crazy about Beyoncé, and working with her to create this opening look for the Formation tour is such a huge thrill and honor. The look tells a story, drawing from the motifs of our recent women’s runway collection while, at the same time, visualizing the powerful themes in hernew music. It’s really exciting to see it come to life on stage - especially since she opens the show in full Dsquared2.”
The elaborate Victorian-inspired outfit was made up of a black crystal embroidered bustier with velvet, puff shouldered embroidered sleeves, broad brim hat, and lace embellished leather gloves. A tattoo lace bodysuit creates an embroidery effect on the skin while a crystal mesh fishnet bodysuit brings light to the look. Ruffled and jeweled black ankle boots finish off the look.
Beyonce’s dancers rocked a similar look with a Victorian style black lace bodysuit with leather and lace gloves, a broad brim hat, and ruffled capelet with a bow at the neck.
