Beyoncé's Twirling (And Making Money) On Her Haters With 'Boycott Beyonce' Tour Merchandise & Those Stage Costumes

You've seen all the videos and pics from Beyoncé's opening night on the Formation tour, now get the deets on the slay-worthy costumes and her tour merchandise that's making us love her petty side...

DSquared2 shared the sketches of Beyonce's looks for the opening number, created by Dean and Dan Caten for her and all 20 of her dancers. The designers dished about the Victorian goth look:

“We are crazy about Beyoncé, and working with her to create this opening look for the Formation tour is such a huge thrill and honor. The look tells a story, drawing from the motifs of our recent women’s runway collection while, at the same time, visualizing the powerful themes in her new music. It’s really exciting to see it come to life on stage - especially since she opens the show in full Dsquared2.”


The elaborate Victorian-inspired outfit was made up of a black crystal embroidered bustier with velvet, puff shouldered embroidered sleeves, broad brim hat, and lace embellished leather gloves. A tattoo lace bodysuit creates an embroidery effect on the skin while a crystal mesh fishnet bodysuit brings light to the look. Ruffled and jeweled black ankle boots finish off the look.

Beyonce’ s dancers rocked a similar look with a Victorian style black lace bodysuit with leather and lace gloves, a broad brim hat, and ruffled capelet with a bow at the neck.

That tour merch of hers that reads Boycott Beyonce is GENIUS.  After her "Formation" track dropped and cops and mainstream media and non-melanin having people were all in their feelings.  Mainly about the themes of police brutality and Beyonce's audacity to be unapologetically black. So to answer all those "calls to boycott Beyonce," the consummate business woman provided them with a means to do so. 


Get the rest of the breakdowns on every outfit she wore -- from Balmain to Gucci -- on her opening night HERE.
