Could a spark of competition from the wardrobe of Brittney Spear’s “The Circus” tour  be the inspiration behind Beyonce’s revamps?

Sketches have been released of from Beyonce’s up and coming 2009 World Tour wardrobe. Though the drawings come after the “Like a Circus” singer, they have a unique flair of their own.

 Apparently Beyonce saw some of French designer Thierry Mugler’s work at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute’s “Superheroes” exhibit in May, 2008. From there Mugler signed on to be the creative advisor and costume designer of the “Diva” singer’s tour. 

The designer told WWD that the costumes are “‘the duality between being a woman and a warrior. Feminine. Free. Warrior. Fierce.”

On Sunday I was fortunate attend enough to attend Obama’s

free concert.

It was hosted at the National Mall in D.C. The stage was all the way by the Lincoln  Memorial. We got there late so were were miles down the Mall, in front of the Washington Monument. The concert was fabulous. Will.I.Am, Sherly Crow, Shakira, Usher, Willy Nelson, Stevie Wonder and U2 performed. Others performed, BUT, we got there too late to see them.

It was so exciting. Stevie Wonder. Shakira and Usher did a song together. It was soooo good. Shakira’s voice stood out a lot [haha] but i still enjoyed the song. However, my favorite part of the show was U2’s performance. My eyes teared up! I wanted to cry but I don’t like to when I am in front of my family. U2’s song dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr. was beautiful. Also, I had no idea that U2 was Irish. Bono, the lead singer of the band, words were so touching. He said that as an person from an Irish family, MLK and Obama means freedom fro him. I was beside myself!

After the musical part of the  concert, Obama came out. Yippy! He expressed how happy he was to see us all there.

I loved the concert, however, the phenomenal part of my day was not the music. It moved me to see so many people of so many races and ages together celebrating one man. One event. This day really meant  a lot to me.
