Designer Michael Costello Ruled the 2014 Grammy Red Carpet [Photos]


56th GRAMMY Awards - Press Room

It’s a designer’s dream to have their garments worn by A-list celebs on the red carpet. With awards season in full swing, our favorite vixens are donning top notch threads and making stars out of the ones who created them. During last night’s Grammy ceremony, Beyonce sent photographers into a tizzy over her custom Michael Costello gown. White, sheer and form fitting, King Bey’s bodacious bod left us “drunk in love” on and off the stage.

Michael Costello, a Project Runway alum, was just one of the few designers chosen to create looks for Beyonce’s Grammy appearance and had no idea until the big night that she had chosen his creation.

“I met her stylist, Ty Hunter, at a Golden Globes after-party and he said he wanted to talk to me about a few Grammy options. I was thrilled, but I knew he was also going to have Elie Saab, Valentino and Donatella Versace whipping up creations, too,” says the designer to LA Times. “Then, less than a week ago, I got a call, and Ty said he wanted to work with us on something special. He came to our showroom in downtown L.A. and we started pulling out the goodies. We worked on a few options for her. My whole sewing room was living a ‘Project Runway’ moment for sure.”

The dress, which will be showcased at New York Fashion Week on February 8, is entirely handmade with a nude mesh overlay and horse hair wire on the hem. Believe it or not, the California native had time to create two other red carpet looks as well. Flip the page to see who else got the Costello treatment.
