Last night, Beyoncé kicked off her Mrs. Carter Show world tour in Belgrade, Serbia, debuting the designer wardrobe she’ll wear as she sings her way across Europe and the United States this summer.
During her kick-off show, the woman who brought us “Freakum Dress” paraded around the stage in an array of costumes – including bedazzled bodysuits, hot pants, and thigh-high boots – by designers like Emilio Pucci, Ralph & Russo (pictured above), DSquared2, and Stuart Weitzman.
Oh yeah, and a gold sequined bodysuit patterned with trompe l’oeil breasts that makes Madonna’s Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra look demure.

“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,” Emilio Pucci creative director Peter Dundas – who remixed looks from his autumn/winter 2013-14 collection for the singer – told Vogue. The bodysuit – one of Beyoncé’s signature looks – gets a Pucci twist with zipper detailing and a beaded crocodile motif.
