Beyoncé kicked off The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in Serbia yesterday; and as is the case with any fashionista, she had to have the perfect looks for this much-anticipated tour. Relying on her stylists, Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith, as well as her fashion designer mother Tina Knowles, the singer’s creative team also collaborated with famed shoe designer Stuart Weitzman to create the perfect footwear. See sketches above.
Weitzman has worked for the pop star before, having also collaborated on the designs for Beyoncé’s shoes for her last two tours, The Beyoncé Experience and I Am… Tour. The shoe designs for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour range from stiletto pumps, with Swarovski crystal details, to lace-up, military-influenced boots, both short and thigh-high. Weitzman also created styles to be worn by her dancers and band members.
“Creating footwear for Beyoncé’s shows has been one of my most inspiring projects. She and her entire team know exactly what they need, always focusing on the fashion and the function of the styles that will be worn,” says Weitzman.
