Cruel Style

Beyonce is in the hot seat after a month in the spotlight. She just performed at the Superbowl, made an appearance at the Grammy’s and is releasing her HBO documentary Beyonce: Life is but a Dream. After being named GQ’s sexiest woman of the century, her fame is widespread. But she is now being put under fire for some of her recent outfit choices, and not for baring too much of her own skin, but the skin of rare animals. US Weekly reported that her new shoe line, a PMK’s bespoke sneaker wedge, is made of stingray, ostrich, calf hair, crocodile, and anaconda. This doesn’t help with the problems she is already facing with PETA because of her Superbowl outfit. The Huffington Post quotes designer Rubin Singer that there are “strips of engineered python, paneled iguana and trapunto/pick stitched leather” throughout the Superbowl outfit. PETA is horribly offended that she would support the killing of rare animals in such a large capacity to promote an international fashion line. Image
