Roberto Cavalli is running for cover after releasing an image of Beyoncé in a one of his colorful, custom made dresses for the Mrs. Carter Show Tour. Outraged fans picked apart the artistic sketch, pointing out that Queen B was missing an essential part of her being–her signature curves.

“Dear Fans, 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,” Cavalli’s Faccebook page stated. “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.”

This isn’t the first time an artist had wreaked havoc on Beyoncé’s frame. Last month, B clapped back at her H&M campaign images.
