Stylist Ty Hunter is dishing the dirt on what it takes to make the Queen Bey look so amazing on stage
Beyoncé‘s tour wardobe has been generating loads of buzz over the past several weeks for one simple reason: It. is. ah-mazing.
We’ve been shamelessly fawning over each new onstage ensemble and admiring the wide range of show-stopping looks. But all we’ve had was pretty pictures and not much information. Until now.
The Queen Bey shared a video of her stylists Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith explaining exactly what it takes to make her look so fabulous.
It turns out each look is specially created by a high-end designer and then sent over to Bey’s personal team for inspection and approval. ‘It’s a process because it has to be stage-appropriate in order for her to dance,’ Racquel says.
In the video, Ty walks us through how they chose several of Beyoncé’s key pieces – including the Versace ‘Bow Down’ jacket, the Vrettos Vrettakos polka-dot bodysuit and the Emilio Pucci beaded leotard (andthose red suede boots).
He also explains the inspiration for the red tartan shirt look. ‘She wanted to do a spin on the “Flawless” video, so we contacted Givenchy and told them we want the video look but a little more upscale and more stage-friendly.’
