Designer Roberto Cavalli caught the online clap back after sketches of a dress specifically designed for Beyoncé were posted online. The problem was Beyoncé is a thicky, thicky, thick girl and Cavalli had her looking like Olive Oil nine days into her Master Cleanse. Well, The Cavalli Group has heard y’all loud and clear and has released a statement — one of which I doubt will settle your concerns.
But you know, they tried:
We would like to clarify that the image of the gown created by Roberto Cavalli for Beyoncé is a sketch and not a photo, and therefore it is only meant to be a stylized and artistic vision.
Roberto Cavalli loves women and more than anyone else has always exalted and highlighted the female shape with his creations, building his signature style on the glorification of sensuality and femininity.
Okay, but in the future, just add a little extra pencil to those hips and thighs, please.
Meanwhile, the tour the dress was actually for, “The Mrs. Carter Show, “is expected to provide the Queen Bey with a whole lotta money (via Huffington Post):
Currently in the midst of her international Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Beyonce spent six nights in London, playing shows at the city’s 02 Arena. Bey raked in $9.7 million in gross sales from the 02 shows.
Days after she wrapped her London shows, Bey headed to Manchester, playing three shows at the city’s Manchester Arena. The singer brought in an additional $4.65 in gross sales for the three Manchester shows, Billboard reports. Figures from these shows indicate Beyonce is making on average $1.55 million to $1.6 million per show in gross ticket sales. With a total of 65 tour stops, Beyonce will likely gross more than $100 million in ticket sales.
Beyonce is scheduled to continue her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour throughout the summer, kicking off her shows in the United States on June 28. The final stop on the tour will be held on Sept. 13 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
All these racks, all these racks…
