Beyonce is Roland Mouret’s new style inspiration

Roland Mouret has revealed that he began raising the hemline on his dresses, thanks to style inspiration from the world-famous diva

It looks like Roland Mouret might just love Beyonce as much as we do… The French designer has revealed that Bey was behind his decision to start raising the hemline on his covetable form-fitting frocks.

The French designer recently began to stray from his tried-and-tested style of signature calf-skimming dresses – releasing a series of frocks for net-a-porter.com with a decidedly higher hem.

In a funny way, the first one that did that for me was Beyonce,’ he told FabSugar.com. ‘This season, where my length was mid-calf, she asked to raise the hem.’

‘I said, ‘You really inspire me, because it’s nice to see that kind of attitude,” he continued.

The designer du jour – who counts Victoria Beckham, Cameron Diaz and Heidi Klum among his famous fans – admits that his original longer-length designs were created for women who ‘don’t want to show the legs, because they don’t like the leg‘ – but that the new style gives women the option to flash their pins if they want to.
