Why one Beyonce’s not enough!

30 April 2009


There are lots of people we can imagine having a body double. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, for example. But Beyonce? Has the singer been targeted by a terrorist for her crimes against fashion? Does she need someone to take over as her alter ego Sasha Fierce when she gets out of breath of squeezing into Gareth Pugh's creations? Nope, it turns out the bootylicious one just can't be bothered to do some of the boring press appearances required of her on her global travels. When Beyonce realised a trip to the Albertina museum in Vienna, home to some of the most important print rooms in the world, would clash with a much-needed shopping trip, she apparently sent her lookalike to meet the exhibition's curator instead of her. ‘What a cheek,' he's said to have exclaimed on uncovering the ploy. Oh, come on – you'd do the same if it meant getting your hands on a pair of those covetable YSL cage heels. Now, where can we buy a clone? [The Times]
