Beyonce is no stranger to making a statement with her fashion choices, and her latest tour outfit is no exception. The superstar singer kicked off the Renaissance World Tour in Cologne, Germany, wearing a stunning custom look by Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika.
The outfit consisted of a nude-colored tulle catsuit that hugged her curves and was hand-embroidered with Swarovski crystals, sequins, and pearls. The off-shoulder was adorned with a pearl chocker, while the back featured cascading pearl chains that added a touch of drama. Beyonce paired the dazzling ensemble with black velvet opera gloves and wavy blonde hair for a glamorous effect.
According to the Beirut-based brand, the special creation took 17 skilled artisans and 260 hours of embroidery and tailoring to complete. It was inspired by the Renaissance theme of Beyonce’s album and tour, which celebrates her artistic evolution and cultural impact.
Beyonce has long been a fan of Arab designers and has worn several creations by Georges Hobeika in the past. For the 2019 Wearable Art Gala, she donned a lion-themed bodysuit by the couturier that paid homage to her role in The Lion King. Hobeika praised Beyonce as a symbol of independence, strength, and pride, qualities that he also imbues in his designs.
Beyonce’s Renaissance World Tour is set to continue until September 27th, with stops in various cities across Europe and North America. Fans can expect more spectacular outfits from the singer, who has been showcasing looks from both established and emerging brands, such as Valentino, Mugler, Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Loewe, Jacquemus, and more.
Beyonce’s custom George Hobeika look is not only a testament to her impeccable style and taste but also a nod to her appreciation of diverse and talented designers from around the world. She proves once again that she is not only a musical icon, but also a fashion force to be reckoned with.
