At Sunday night’s 2017 Grammy Awards, Beyoncé turned heads in an array of dazzling outfits designed by Peter Dundas, former creative director of Roberto Cavalli. The gowns were a first look at his yet-to-be-launched namesake brand. The Norwegian designer took to Instagram to share sketches of the golden dress and headpiece the singer wore for her performance, writing: “The very first #peterdundas eponymous collection look specially made for our muse queen Bey.”
Offstage, the singer opted for a red, sequined gown with a plunging neckline, also created by Dundas. “Beyoncé and I have a long working relationship. I think she wanted someone she trusted and connected with on several levels,” Dundas tells American Vogue. “She also knew I was going solo and liked being the first to wear my new collection.”
The designer goes way back with the singer, so it’s only fitting he chose her to model his new creations. Dundas has dressed Beyoncé for more than a decade, and is responsible for the striking off-the-shoulder yellow number she wore in one of the Lemonade music videos. Dundas also designed several of the costumes for her last two world tours, The Mrs. Carter Show and Formation.
The gowns worn by Beyoncé at last night’s ceremony are the first of his solo collection to grace the red carpet. We’re sure there will be much more to come.
