The life of an A-list dress…

19 November 2008


Guess what's just arrived in the Grazia office? Yes, it's the Gareth Pugh dress Beyonce wore on stage at the MTV European Music Awards two weeks ago - as in, the actual dress itself. And it hasn't even been dry-cleaned (well we kinda made that up but it's probably true...) So we knew we couldn't let it leave the office for the photo shoot until we'd made our lovely Beauty Assistant Rachel try it on. Just to see what size it was.  Ergo what size Beyonce is - and that is tiny - but there are stretch panels on it, which we hope she filled out. Because Rachel is teeny tiny. We also had to make Rachel do the running man dance to see how mobile that stack of zippers actually is. And we can tell you that Beyonce is trouper. as well as a super-star. So here's the verdict. It's actually surprisingly comfortable. The elastane fabric in between the zips lets you move around reasonably well but what Rachel did have problems with was the neck. The high collar, feels, well, a bit like a stiff dog collar. Ah, all in the course of an average day in the Grazia office. We needed a little mid-week pick-me-up!
