Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing Talks About His Emmy Nod for Beyoncé’s “Homecoming” …


Eight days before the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards are presented on Sept. 22nd, 2019, the Creative Arts Awards will be announced, and among the nominees is the costume-design team behind “Homecoming,” the 2018 Netflix film documenting Beyonce’s Coachella concert. For The Hollywood Reporter, I spoke with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing and her longtime stylists, Marni Senofonte and Timothy White, about the challenges of producing the costumes for such a large cast (almost 200 people, including backup singers and dancers and a marching band), all amid the pressure of a live, filmed concert experience. The trio discusses never-before-shared anecdotes about the experience, from the “Egyptian goddess” costume that necessitated a reworking of the show’s beginning to the creation of the fab fringed Christian Louboutin boots that are a key part of Beyonce’s costume throughout the concert. Rousteing will join Senofonte and White in Los Angeles for the Creative Arts Emmys on Sept. 14th, a feat all the more impressive when you consider that the debut of his Spring 2020 collection for Balmain takes place in Paris just nine days later.
