So, the new Beyonce video is out for her song “Countdown” and I can’t. stop. watching. it. Like seriously, it’s been playing on my computer all day and I think the producers sitting next to me are getting annoyed…yup, someone just gave me cut-eye.
The thing about Beyonce is that she always manages to find a way to bring something different to the table each time she makes a video. And the videos are always stylish without being over-the-top, and sexy without being sleazy. B rocks a bunch of amazing looks in the “Countdown” video (we spotted at least six outfit changes) and unlike some of her past videos (like “Girls (Run the World)”) the clothes this time are actually really wearable!
We’re loving the simple black turtleneck and leggings look, which are straight out of an American Apparel catalogue. American Apparel also gave Beyonce the sheer, oversized button-up shirts and the black and white striped look she wears while seated. According to Beyonce’s stylist, the bright-coloured leotards are by Capezio, the fierce cut-out gown is by French designer Mugler, the sparkly mini dress is by Chan Luu and the Flashdance-y ripped tee is Forever 21. Amazing right? And we haven’t even touched on all of Beyonce’s hairstyles in the vid, from her long, sleek ponytail to her 60s-era inspired mod bowl cut (which go perfectly with her fluttering eyelashes)! Oh – and her orange nails? Totally #trending right?
Whether it’s ultra-glam or dance studio casual, Beyonce rocks all of the looks in this video like a true fashion icon and star. Which look do YOU like best? Tweet me @trendingtheshow and let me know! Now if you excuse me, I’m going to watch the video again and again and again!
