Italian Designer Roberto Cavalli custom created one of the dresses that Beyoncé rocks on stage during her Mrs. Carter World Tour, and while it looks gorgeous on the songstress, the frock has now landed him in the hot seat. On Tuesday, the sketch for the colorful muslin silk printed gown was posted to Cavalli’s official Facebook page … and Queen Bey's coveted curves are nowhere to be found, having been dwindled down to Barbie proportions! The "Countdown" singer's legs are pin thin, her enviable curves have been minimized, and she appears to be 10 feet tall!
While fashion sketches do tend to depict women in an unrealistic light, Roberto seems to have missed the mark on this one! The megastar shared images of the final product on stage and we have to say, her famous bod does the dress good!
However on Wednesday, Cavalli's camp released a statement addressing the controversy.
"Dear Fans, 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."
