PETA Slams Beyonce’s Super Bowl Python Fashions
Beyonce’s Super Bowl XLVII performance was a touchdown for the millions of fans that pretended to care whether the Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers, while patiently waiting for the international pop star to take the stage for her highly-anticipated Pepsi halftime show where she was later joined by former Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. And, while the general consensus was that Beyonce has never looked better, despite giving birth to her daughter Blue Ivy only a year ago, PETA has issued a statement saying Queen Bey’s sexy looks were a complete fumble.
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals denounced the singer’s Super Bowl style, which consisted of leather, iguana, and python materials. “We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés here and here, she’d probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits, or other animals who died painfully,” the animal rights group said in a statement. “Today’s fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé’s Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.”
Beyonce’s performance wardrobe, which consisted of a black leather bodysuit topped with a cropped motorcycle jacket and a mini-wrap skirt (with lace trimming underneath), was the result of hours of hard work by the hands of costume designer Ruben Singer. “Over two months there were no less than five fittings and well over 200-man hours with a team of 14 dedicated to creating the final look at the designer’s New York City atelier,” read a press release about the elaborate looks. “One full week leading up to the event in daily dress rehearsals at the Superdome was also required to make sure everything was perfect for the big night.”
So, do you think Beyonce’s style scored or was it worthy of PETA’s penalty marks?
