Beyonce Knowles Kicks Off Her ‘Mrs. Carter’ World Tour In Ralph & Russo

Beyonce Mrs Carter Tour

Beyonce Knowles kicked off her 42-city ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’ in Belgrade, Serbia last night, wearing a white crystal- and pearl-embellished bodysuit with a peplum skirt and fringed epaulettes, designed by Ralph & Russo.

They are not the only ones who will be dressing Beyoncé during this epic tour.

Peter Dundas, Creative Director at Emilio Pucci, has created four looks for Beyoncé, for which he drew inspiration from his Fall 2013 collection. The costumes will resonate with the singer’s modern take on glamour and complement the theatrical storytelling of the ‘Mrs. Carter Show’.

Dean and Dan Caten from DSquared2 will also be dressing Beyoncé for her tour, creating exclusive pieces inspired by their ‘Glamazons’ Spring 2013 collection.

As for the shoes, Beyonce’s stylist and mother, Tina Knowles, worked with Stuart Weitzman to create footwear to complement her costumes, ranging from stiletto pumps with Swarovski crystal detailing, to lace military-influenced ankle- and knee-high boots.

Beyonce’s world tour runs until August 5, when she will close at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn – aptly.

Nieves Alvarez In Vionnet, Alfredo Villalba, Ralph & Russo & Gucci – Solo Moda

Solo Moda Vionnet

Spanish beauty Nieves Alvarez shined in six stunning outfits over the weekend as she hosted her show ‘Solo Moda’.

Her first look, a sleeveless, v-neck Vionnet Resort 2013 dress, is right on-trend with its color blocking, and is the perfect choice for the stunning model and host to show-off her enviable décolletage and legs. The peep toe, ankle-strapped Jimmy Choo sandals are subtle enough not to compete with the dress’s statement-making colors.

Sticking with the Vionnet Resort 2013 collection, her second look was a chic, ankle-grazing pantsuit. The key to a successful suit is the tailoring, and this is tailored perfectly to fit her body. The sky-high, orange Oscar de la Renta sandals give the black and white ensemble the perfect finishing pop of color.

Her final look of the first day is a simple, flowing Vionnet Resort 2013 dress with a similar shape to the first. The knee-grazing, tulip-shaped skirt looks both effortless and chic at once, and she once again turns to her shoes–peach Christian Louboutin sandals–to get a little punch of color interest.

“Beyonce is a true representation of the Ralph & Russo woman who is strong, powerful and independent.
