We all watched as Beyoncé took a leap of faith leaning all the way back in her chair during her amazing Grammy’s performance on Sunday.
While only she could pull that stunt off while pregnant with twins, another stunt she pulled was right in the center of her dress. It was an embroidered portrait of none other than Queen Bee herself.
According to an interview with Vogue Runway, the creator of the dress, Peter Dundas, revealed that the dress did, in fact, feature Beyoncé’s face, as well as influences from Gustav Klimt, references to the African goddess Oshun, and lyrics from Bey’s song “Love Drought.”
“I like creating stories within a garment,” he said. “It was a fun way to celebrate the moment for her.”
The dress, which is said to have taken 50 people one week to embroider, is the first creation from Dundas since he went on his own venture after leaving a creative director post at Roberto Cavalli.
Dundas was also the brains behind the infamous yellow dress that Bey wore in her Hold Up video, as she smashed car windows with a bat.
“I think she wanted someone she trusted and connected with on several levels, and felt the Lemonade dress had particularly been that. She also knew I was going solo and liked being the first to wear my new collection. Also we both love yellow!”
In his interview with Vogue, Dundas said, “I like creating stories within a garment. It was a fun way to celebrate the moment for her.” The designer also made the gold chain that she wore during the opening of her performance and the stunning red dress after her performance.
