Beyonce is in trouble with PETA again. After donning a fabulous-looking but rather controversial bodysuit made from "strips of engineered python, paneled iguana and trapunto/pick stitched leather," according to designer Rubin Singer, the star has been at the exotic animal skins again for her latest venture in shoe design.
Bey's new Isabel Marant wedge trainers, custom designed by PMK, who worked with the singer to make a Beyonce-ppropriate pair of kicks. No prize for guessing what design elements went into "The King Bey" shoe. Wild skins, of course. Stingray, ostrich, calf hair, crocodile and anaconda skins to be precise.
If you're wondering how much a pair of these would set you back, we've got the answer... £400! A spokesman for animal charity PETA told The Mail Online, "These custom-made kicks come with a high price – and it's paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed." He added, "We hope that one day she'll go completely cruelty-free."
What d'you make of these killer kicks (poor choice of words, apologies)?
