Peter Dundas - Peter Dundas: Beyonce is easy to design for
Emilio Pucci's creative director Peter Dundas thinks Beyonce is one of the ''sweetest stars'' to work with after creating five looks for her The Mrs. Carter Show world tour.
Peter Dundas thinks Beyonce is one of the ''sweetest stars'' to design for.
The creative director for Emilio Pucci has created five looks for the singer to wear during her The Mrs. Carter Show world tour, which kicked off in Serbia on Monday night (15.04.13), and especially loves how open to ideas she is.
Peter told Vogue.co.uk: ''Doing Beyoncé's costumes makes a designer want to run home and sketch. She is one of the sweetest stars to work with. She knows what she wants and what will work for her, but she respects creativity.
''I thought she looked incredible in the costumes, but it's difficult to mess things up with her. She's one of those girls who look even more beautiful without make-up.''
Peter was so keen to please Beyonce that he altered his most recent autumn/winter 2013-14 collection to cater to the superstar's criteria while performing on stage.
He added: ''She liked the Pucci girl look and vibe of the last show, but we made unique couture versions to make it extra special and also to suit her needs as a dancer.
''For certain tableaux, there were specific needs in terms of colour and, of course, she has to be able to change in 59 seconds. That's even less than a quick change in a runway show.''
Shoe designer STUART WEITZMAN also took on the ''inspiring'' job of creating Swariovski crystal-covered footwear for her and found it easy to design for someone who had such a clear vision of what they want.
Beyonce caused jaws to drop on the opening night in a revealing gold bodysuit, which left little to the imagination.
Julien Macdonald, Dsquared2, and Ralph and Russo have also designed pieces for the singer's tour.
