More fashion highlights from Beyonce's new videos
Christmas came early for more than a few fashion designers when Beyoncé’s new “visual album” arrived on Friday.
From big-name labels like Versace, Georges Chakra, and DKNY to indie designers like Wendy Nichol, Norma Kamali, and Alexander Wang and even wannabe hipster brands like Urban Outfitters, Beyoncé’s style team really spread the love around when it came to assembling the wardrobe for each of the 17 music videos.
Click through the gallery to see the fashion highlights.
In “Pretty Hurst,” Beyoncé sees how she measures up wearing the Omo racer back top and boy shorts from designer Norma Kamali’s InteractiveActive collection. Later in the video, the singer slips into a lemon yellow Norma Kamali bathing suit.
The singer almost shakes the fringe off of a dress from designer Maxime Simoens’ Spring 2014 collection in the video for “Mine.”
In “XO,” Beyoncé rides the Cyclone at Coney Island wearing a T by Alexander Wang tank top, Gypsy Warrior mesh bra, and the Notorious B.I.G. snapback trucker hat from Urban Outfitters.
Stylist Lysa Cooper told THR that Jay-Z insisted his wife skip the wardrobe changes and wear this ensemble — a vintage Eres bathing suit, sheer Wendy Nichol dress, and Jennifer Fisher jewelry — throughout the black-and-white video for “Drunk in Love.”
Flanked by Victoria’s Secret models Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, and Chanel Iman, Beyoncé‘s new alter ego wears cut-off denim shorts, a leather biker jacket with leopard-print sleeves from 3.1 Phillip Lim, and the All Saints Valtari necklace in the video for “Yoncé.”
Beyoncé is the center of attention in the video for “Blow,” thanks in part to this neon tiger-print mink coat from Versace.
In the midst of a beauty queen breakdown in “Pretty Hurts,” B submerges herself in water wearing a blue beaded V-neck Georges Chakra gown.
Beyoncé dons a sexy, strappy one-piece from Herve Leger in the video for “Yoncé,” but something tells me this bathing suit wouldn’t survive a drenching as well as the Georges Chakra gown did.
Though you can’t see it here, I have been assured that B’s glow-in-the-dark manicure in “Blow” comes courtesy of Ciate Nail Polish. (No word yet on where the day-glo orange lipstick came from.) Watch the 30 second preview and you will catch a glimpse of the singer’s booty in a pair of vintage DKNY tights.
B breaks out the spikes in the video for “Jealous,” layering on a studded plate cuff, safety chain, and gemstone gold bracelet from Eddie Borgo jewelry.
Is it just me, or does B having a Madonna moment in the video for “Haunted?” With her finger waves and that black-and-white silk jumpsuit by Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko, she looks like she could start Vogue-ing at any moment.
