Thanks To Beyonce, Now Everybody Can Do The Robot

Calling all cyborgs. Remember that metal glove Beyonce wore? The look may become as ubiquitous as thigh-high boots. Designer Lorraine Schwartz created the glove for the singer’s I Am … Sasha Fierce album. “She wanted something a little bit harder and robotic,” says Schwartz. To get the “superhero” look, the jeweler made a wax mold of Beyonce’s hand, and then cast the hand-piece in lightweight titanium. Schwartz reports she’s since seen regular folk wearing knock-offs. Does this mean we’ll all be fembots soon? []
