The overzealous, animal rights group, PETA has found their latest scapegoat and this time it looks like the victim is Beyonce. According to the Huffington Post, PETA released this statement after Beyonce’s explosive Super Bowl Halftime show on Sunday, saying:
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. Today’s fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé’s Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.
Beyonce’s leather and lace outfit that she rocked on stage was made of “strips of engineered python, paneled iguana and trapunto/pick stitched leather”. The designer of the outfit, Rubin Singer, claims that the outfit took a total of 200 hours to make and required “no less than five fittings”.
Beyonce is no stranger to rocking fashions made from animals though, as she rocked a full-length fur coat and mink eyelashes a couple of weeks back when she took the stage to sing the Star Spangled Banner at President Obama’s inauguration. We wonder how she’ll respond to PETA’s statement. Check out the video below of designer Rubin Singer and the prep that went into making Beyonce’s controversial outfit.
