what does everything think about beyonce wearing rodarte in the new v mag?



personally, beyonce's image/style and the rodarte style clash A LOT for me. I don't think it works. Stilll, it's a spectacular dress and I love seeing people wear it, although i'll take jourdan instead thanks.

I'm not a huge fan of that dress. But they just won the Swiss Textiles Award, which is very exciting!!

If you were Kate and Laura Mulleavy, what would you do with a 100k euro?

Oh I love Rodarte. It is hardly available in the UK though, could do with a boutique to sell online, that is why I am contacting them to see if they would sell to an e-commerce boutique. They are obviously sooo busy at present I have not received a reply yet.

If I didn't know it was Rodarte on Beyonce, I'd think it was Versace.

That shot does nothing for the dress. All you can see clearly is the bust, the rest just looks like mounds of chiffon. It could've worked if there was a wind machine or something to make the fabric flow.

A shame given how much time was spent on the pleating and draping.

I thought I was having a dejavu!
I didn't look at it closely and thought I clicked on last season's collection.
I really liked last season's collection but I was hoping to see something else this season.
It's beautiful though.

that shot is very unfortunate for the dress but I think the colors look lovely with her skin tone.

she looks better in Gareth Pugh in the January Elle than she does in rodarte, i feel that the brand is to organic for someone so mainstream like her

i agree. its such a shame they missed out on showcasing the dress because their work in every singe piece,is so extraordinary it deserves more of a shot. here it just looks like a typical glamour shot rather than an actual image which is quite surprising for V,imo. even in a lot of their close-ups they still give a real sense of the clothes and the styling. but this....a bit lacking.

another prime example of how un-jaded they are. so down to earth. and that's a funny read talking of laura's record collection...it must have been that massive to help fund an entire collection.
