Beyoncé's (Surprise!) New Music Videos: The Best Style & Beauty Moments
Forget Christmas songs. We know you’re going to be listening to Beyoncé‘s new album all weekend. The powerhouse singer played Santa dropping the gift of a self-titled record, which features 14 songs and 17 music videos. And of course the fashion in every vid is Beyond.
The clothes. The hair. The makeup. The singer went all out for each video, and we picked our top five favorite moments below.
1. This Cape and Crown Combo
Reminding everyone she is the Queen, Bey goes all regal in “Haunted”, wearing a velvet cape and a Swarovski black crystal crown by Michael Cinco. We also love the androgynous suit and necktie she commands the hotel halls with.
2. The Most Amazing Eye Makeup Ever
Want to try a bold — and we mean bold — eye look for your next holiday party? You can always copy the singer’s metallic blue and purple eye seen in her “Mine” spot. And now that we think about it, these videos explain all those hairstyles the star was experimenting with earlier this year.
3. A(nother) White Coat We Need Now
Olivia Pope’s coat collection? So two weeks ago. We’ve moved on to Beyoncé’s. She wears some pretty fierce outerwear, like this white fur-lined number from her “No Angel” video. You may also want to check out the long animal-print one she wears in the pop-arty “Blow”.
4. The Mother of All Statement Necklaces
There’s no lack of bling in any of the videos, but the crazy necklace by jewelry designer Margo Manhattan from “Blow” might be the most noteworthy. “From my background as a ‘theater baby’ my jewelry designs have always been inspired by theatrical style,” Manhattan tells PEOPLE in a statement. “Beyoncé is the ultimate style icon that fuses stardom and style to represent a statement. I love jewelry that speaks silently.” Uh, silently?
5. And This Hervé Léger by Max Azria Bathing Suit, Clearly
You won’t see it in the 30-second preview for “Yonce,” but the singer goes all-out glam in a burnt orange cutout one-piece, paired with a fur coat and crazy-high heels (natch). But you’ll have to buy the full album to see her dance around in it. Bonus: Joan Smalls, Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn also star in the video.
The singer’s fifth studio album — and first since 4 two years ago — is available exclusively on iTunes. What do you think of Bey’s fashion and beauty looks in her new videos? Are you happy she kept it a secret until now?
