  • Roberto Cavalli has shared a sketch of Beyoncé's stage costume from her Mrs Carter World Tour - but it's caused a heated debate online

    Beyoncé has made headlines across the globe again this morning, but this time it’s not another round of pregnancy rumours or as a result of her on-stage antics.

    A sketch of the superstar posted to Facebook by Robert Cavalli has caused disappointment among fans for showing a ‘slimmed down’ version of the 31-year-old.

    Images of Beyoncé wearing the Roberto Cavalli creation on stage during her Mrs Carter World Tour were shared online along with the original sketch, and while the dress is beautiful – no-one can doubt that the sketch looks a far cry from Beyoncé‘s natural physique.

    The caption reads: ‘The stunning Beyoncé Knowles wore a muslin silk multicolored Roberto Cavalli dress with gold barocco embroideries, created exclusively for her ‘The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’!’

    In the pictures, Beyoncé can be seen dancing on stage in the purple and red leaf-print dress, which features cutaway sides and daring thigh splits. She looks sensational.

    Roberto‘s image, clearly a rough sketch to merely show the detail on the dress, shows Beyoncé striking a sexy pose. She looks very tall and super-slim. The ‘cartoon’ sketch has already has 12,847 likes on Facebook and has been shared 1,318 times on the social networking site.

    Fans of the star have now taken to Twitter and Instagram to discuss the sketch and criticise how slim the star looks.

    But it IS only a sketch.

    Last month, the singer’s weight was called into question once again when it was revealed that there had been “discussions” about retouching her bikini shots for the brand.

    But an H&M spokesperson said: ‘As with all campaigns there are discussions on which images should be used. Both H&M and Beyonce are very happy with the final result.’

    Roberto, over to you…
