Beyonce’s Grammy performance is still – I think? – the most talked-about event from Sunday. People complained, for good reason – it was a sexy, stripper-tastic performance at 8 pm on network TV. A lot of people though Beyonce and her #surfboard were the best part of a mediocre show though. Anyway, after she performed, Beyonce changed into this white lace number by Michael Costello (a Project Runway winner). We don’t have those pics, I’m sorry. It’s not really important. What’s important is what Costello says about working with Beyonce:
Viewers weren’t even done thinking about Beyoncé’s ultra-sexy bodysuit from her racy opening performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards before they were introduced to yet another revealing outfit by the star.
Bey showed off a perforated, white-hot gown by Project Runway winner Michael Costello, that only covered up the naughtiest bits of her bod. And now, Costello dishes the details on designing the singer’s gown for music’s biggest night to E! News.
“It was incredible! We didn’t have any of her sizes or measurements,” Costello tells us. “The dress was just made to fit a sample mannequin. It’s smaller than a size 4. She is tiny! That dress is at least a 2/4. She looks amazing. I just love the way it all came together. Ty [Bey's stylist] knew it was going to fit.”
He continues, “At first I was a little concerned with the pieces I gave. Maybe it needs to be smaller or bigger? When you send something to Beyoncé, you’re just a little concerned, but Ty knew. Ty knew the fit.”
In fact, Ty didn’t have have the fitting until the day of the show! Talk about pressure. Costello tells us the gown took three days to make and wasn’t even finished when Ty came to see how things were going. “The neckline, the back, the hemline was not complete, and we still had to do some of the hand sewing on it,” he tells us. “We put in a good extra day’s work. We had a great team. I made four other pieces that night for Beyonce, so that Ty had good options.”
So, there you go. Beyonce is smaller than a mannequin. She is a size 2 or 4. Which… I’m not sure I believe, but I am more likely to believe it about Bey rather than, say, Kim Kardashian. Bey has slimmed down a hell of a lot over the past year. I heard some of the Bey-haters suggest that Beyonce might have even had lipo on her famous booty and her coveted thighs. That is something I noticed about Beyonce’s Grammy performance – when you look beyond the Flashdance cheese, Bey’s booty and thighs looked much smaller. I’m not saying it’s lipo. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s diet and exercise. But is she a 2/4?
