Beyoncé Knowles has enlisted Thierry Mugler to design a scene-stealing wardrobe for her new tour.

After reportedly discovering a love for the designer after seeing his pieces at the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute's Superheroes exhibition in May, Knowles then chose a vintage 1987 Mugler dress for the cover shoot of new album, I Am Sasha Fierce.

Although Mugler had stepped away from the fashion world, concentrating instead on his couture and fragrance collections, the singer has has tempted him back, enlisting him to create a 58-piece wardrobe for her upcoming world tour.

But it doesn't stop there; Mugler's input will also extend to a creative advisor role, WWD reports, which will see him contribute to the design of the whole show, from lighting to choreography, as well as also providing stage outfits for the entire production.

He will even direct three sections, entitled, Dangerously in Love, Ave Maria and a spectacular finale.

The tour kicks off in March 2009, with the first concert taking place in Canada.
