Project Runway season 4 contestant Chris March is suing BeyoncÃ©‘s costume designers, Thierry Mugler and Tancrede Prinz, for failing to pay him for his work. The lawsuit claims Chris March was hired to design costumes for BeyoncÃ© Knowles but is still owedÂ nearly $45,000 for services rendered. However, the Project Runway and Project Runway All-Star ChallengeÂ contestant has no hard feelings against BeyoncÃ© herself.
“Chris March’s lawsuit is not against BeyoncÃ©, but rather against Thierry Mugler and Tancrede Prinz, who owe Chris money for having designed and fitted BeyoncÃ©’s costumes,” March’s lawyer, Leslie H. Ben-Zvi said in a press statement regarding the lawsuit. “BeyoncÃ© paid them, but they in turn have not paid Chris. Chris continues to be a fan and great admirer of BeyoncÃ©, who looks beautiful in everything she wears, especially Chris’s costumes.”
Chris March, who placed fourth both on season 4 of Project Runway and in the Project Runway All-Star Challenge special, says he was hired as “head of costumes” for BeyoncÃ©’s tour inÂ February. While diva BeyoncÃ© Knowles was busy wearing his dazzling designs, Chris March was allegedly trying desperately to get paid for his work.
Although March, known for his elaborate costume work on and off Project Runway, is pretty pissed at BeyoncÃ©’s design team at present, he’s still a BeyoncÃ©-lover at heart. “Chris continues to be a big fan and admirer of BeyoncÃ©,” Ben-Zvi said. “And BeyoncÃ© is a big fan of Chris’ as well. She continues to look beautiful in anything she wears, especially Chris’ costumes.”
Nice self-promotion in the midst of defending yourself from BeyoncÃ©’s ire, Mr. March. We applaud you.
