Usually stage costumes for performing artists tend to look just plain costumey and way way too over-the-top, with revealing being the #1 element, and fishnets a must. Britney has succumbed to this trend over and over again, and even our beloved Madonna has occasionally gone down this path (although for the most part, Madonna can do no wrong). Enter Thierry Mugler, however, and Beyonce’s dual personality, Sasha Fierce, and something just clicks. His hard meets soft body clinching garments for Beyonce’s world tour juxtaposes Beyonce’s alter-ego with the world of theatrics and voila! Futuristic, fabulous costumes are born.
