Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini has designed a series of outfits for Beyonce's Mrs. Carter Show world tour, the Italian luxury brand announced Tuesday.

The singer/songwriter debuted two of those ensembles at her Barclays Center shows over the weekend; one was a fully embroidered mini dress embellished with metallic sequins and feathers in a degrade effect from taupe to deep red (worn with Capezio hosiery, in case you're wondering); the other was a black, embroidered, three-quarter-length sleeve, V-neck optical beaded top paired with white silk stretch trousers.
“Designing for Beyonce was great fun as she always puts on an amazing live show," Giannini says in the announcement. "I wanted the outfits to bring to life the assertive, powerful femininity I see in her performances. Her sheer talent, work ethic and uncompromised authenticity are her defining characteristics.”
According to Gucci, we should expect to see the singer/songwriter adding more of their one-of-a-kind creations throughout the Latin American leg of her tour, which kicks off in Brazil on Sept. 8.
