Forget 2008! Fergie is looking more ‘3008‘ lately thanks to her futuristic Black Eyed Peas tour costumes. With the help of celebrity stylist B. Åkerlund, whose clientele includes the likes of Lady Gaga, the 34-year-old singer is rocking out in some major metallic styles. “I did a lot of research on what I thought would be an interesting vibe for Fergie and then incorporated all the things that I love into her costumes and made it all come alive,” Åkerlund tells PEOPLE of her handpicked outfits. “She was very open to my ideas and we collaborated on what would be the best options for the show.” One of the options ended up being one of Fergie’s most talked about costumes — a scintillating heavy armored look — made from a surprisingly light material. “[That] look brought the essence of futuristic armor [and is] made out of plastic with graphic print that gave the feeling of sci-fi meets street fashion,” Åkerlund says of the bodysuit, created by British designer Amy Thompson.  “The details I did together with Swarovski crystals to make it sparkle on stage.” Other costumes on the tour consist of an opening look inspired by Deborah Harry and Giger, a flower that opens up to a dress, and one by former designer to Bono and Mick Jagger, Todd Lynn. To see Fergie’s elaborate costumes in-person, check out the blackeyedpeas.com, for the band’s complete tour schedule. –David Yi
