This image of a dress created by Roberto Cavalli has created quite a stir on the blogosphere and social media with people slamming the designer for slimming the curvaceous star. Turns out this was an illustration of the dresses and the result of a retouched photograph. All the controvesy aside, I think the dress is fierce and looks fantastic on Beyonce. See for yourself after the jump...
The following statement was issued as a clarification on the Roberto Cavalli Facebook page:
We would like to clarify that the image of the gown created by Roberto Cavalli for Beyoncé is a sketch and not a photo, and therefore it is only meant to be a stylized and artistic vision.
Roberto Cavalli loves women and more than anyone else has always exalted and highlighted the female shape with his creations, building his signature style on the glorification of sensuality and femininity."
