Beyonce’s Grammys Dress Designer Michael Costello Dishes on Her Tiny Waist
He enthused to E! News: ”It was incredible! We didn’t have any of her sizes or measurements. The dress was just made to fit a sample mannequin.
”It’s smaller than a size 4. She is tiny! That dress is at least a 2/4. She looks amazing. I just love the way it all came together. Ty [Beyoncé’s stylist] knew it was going to fit.
”At first I was a little concerned with the pieces I gave. Maybe it needs to be smaller or bigger? When you send something to Beyoncé, you’re just a little concerned, but Ty knew.”
According to Costello, as soon as Beyonce’s stylist Ty Hunter saw it, he knew it was the one.
“I know that she could have any designer in the world make her anything she wants — I never thought he was going to call,” Costello says of a chance encounter with Hunter at a party. “He came into the showroom [four days before the Grammys], and he was loving everything. He had a direction he wanted to go in, which was ‘Shut s–t down’ and ‘Nakedness.’”
Along with her fabulous dress, Beyonce also sported $7.5 million in diamonds!
Jewelry expert Michael O’Conner told Celebuzz, “We’re seeing a trend in Hollywood of stacking numerous rings of various styles together for a signature Bohemian feel. Beyonce’s predominantly platinum ring stacks included such unusual combinations as colored gemstones, colored diamonds, classic cuts, and rose cut diamonds. On her left hand – with her massive engagement ring – she partnered a very long north south style ring comprised of rose and table cut diamonds to keep it simple and classic. On her right hand, she partnered 6 styles from classic diamond solitaires to clusters, colored diamonds and colored gemstones. When wearing multiple cocktail rings, her choice of platinum ensures maximum sparkle, which is the rock n’ roll feel that she was going for at the Grammys. Estimated total value of this unique stacked rings look (minus the engagement ring) is approximately $7.5 million.”
