Beyonce took to the 2015 MET Gala in a showstopping barely there piece by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy and it caused quite a stir but there is a thing to the dress...
Beyonce stepped out on Monday May 4th 2015 in couture Givenchy for MET Gala and her look got mixed reactions as she appeared nearly naked with multi precious stones dazzling protectively over her privates.
The (in)famous creation made by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy putting the pop star's body on display is actually an illusion. The piece was created with a skin coloured tulle featured under the embroidery with individual hand sown crystals and stones.
It was revealed on Beyonce.com that the illusion tulle was specially dyed in Beyonce's skin completion to create an impression that Queen Bey was showing off that much flesh.
Sketches of the dress (in the slider above) revealed by Givenchy outlined the illusion tulle crafted from her bust to her upper thighs showing off underneath as bare kin.
Queen Bey chose the look with a towering 7" suede leather skin coloured platform sandals with the dress which reportedly took 2,000 hours to make.
