Beyoncé is set to embark on her 59-date Mrs. Carter Show World Tour beginning April 15 and she's enlisted the help of designer Julien Macdonald to create the stage costumes. The British fashion designer dressed Bey up in the yellow knitted fringe outfit for her 2011 Good Morning America performance and again for this past New Year's Eve performance in Las Vegas with a sequin and tasseled gold playsuit.

"There's nothing better than seeing somebody you admire, or someone who embodies Julien Macdonald," Macdonald explained to Grazia UK while showing his autumn/winter 'Viva Las Vegas' collection in his West London studio a few weeks ago. "I like girls like Beyoncé or Kristen Stewart, they are amazing women. Iconic. They are part of a new generation. When she started wearing my clothes it was AMAZING!"

Macdonald loves to go the risqué and flashy route and Beyoncé has the body to make it all look flawless under the spotlight so we can't wait to see what results from this fashion collaboration.
