Last week the the star confirmed on America's 'Today Show', that Mr Mugler will design the costumes for her next world tour, which kicks off in Canada in March.
Beyonce first fell in love with Mugler's designs when she saw some examples of his work on display at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, at The Costume Institute's, Superheroes show in May.
Since then she has worn vintage Mugler on the cover of her latest release, 'I am Sascha Fierce' and appointed him her Creative Advisor. As well as designing 58 costumes for Beyonce, and those for her backing singers and dancers, Mugler will oversee all other aspects of the tour.
This is a giant step for designer/performer collaborations. Jean Paul Gaultier (for Madonna) and Julien Macdonald (for Kylie) have both designed tour costumes before, but for this project Mugler will actually choreograph three sections of the show too, including the finale.
We're expected this tour to be one spectacular show.
