Someone give B a heads up because one of the best moments in her career and her Super Bowl XLVII costume is just about to get ripped apart by animal rights activists, PETA. Sure, we loved Beyoncé’s performance, but PETA is anything but pleased. Why?
You know that spectacular costume Beyoncé wore for her Super Bowl XLVII appearance? It’s a multi-piece jacket, leotard, and skirt design by Rubin Singer and took about 200 hours to assemble. Its “pieces” include an incorporation of python and iguana skins, and trapunto-pick stitched leather (also known as cowhide).
What? Skins of sorts? Sound the warning bells!
Upon the “discovery”, PETA immediately issued a statement criticizing B’s outfit:
We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés, she’d probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals that died painfully. Today’s fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé’s Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.
Personally, we’ve got nothing against anything Beyoncé’s Super Bowl XLVII-related but we guess it ain’t a fashion faux pas until PETA says that it is? Let’s hope B doesn’t don any more animal skin/combination of animal skins for her upcoming world tour, huh?
