After she sang the national anthem at a Super Bowl press conference on Thursday, Beyoncé asked, “Any questions?” Had the superstar asked the same thing after her incredible “not lip-synched” Super Bowl halftime performance Sunday night, we would have responded: “Just one: Who is responsible for that un-freaking-believable outfit?” The answer, it turns out, is not some household name couturier; it’s little-known designer Rubin Singer.
But we have a feeling Singer is about to become a household name thanks to the two looks he created for Beyoncé including a cropped moto jacket paired with a micro-mini wrap skirt made of nylon, metal, silk and plastic, which the star tore away mid-set to reveal a leather-and-lace bodysuit featuring python and iguana skin. (Oh yeah, and he also designed Michelle Williams’s killer getup and looks for the 120 backup dancers.)
Like most of the rest of the country, we can’t stop talking about what Singer created. So we did a little digging and uncovered three interesting tidbits about the designer. (Sorry, none of them are that he’s creating a diffusion line at Target … at least not yet!)
