Beyonce plays the role of a desperate housewife better than Eva Longoria in her latest video- Why Don’t You Love Me. Written by sister Solange, Beyonce shows she’s a better actor in her vids. Deciding to go 50’s all the way- (Which is totally ironic; due to the fact Hank Williams had his own rendition of “Why Don’t You Love Me” in the 50’s) from the narrator and music in the opening scene, the car choice, and obviously the fashion.
Her stylist got it completely right with choosing trends and looks of the upcoming fall season. Top four things to look for:
And you can believe they covered all of them. New shapes and lady-like volumes were the basis of the video and the look of the season. You knew Beyonce wasn’t going anywhere without that unitard one-piece! Restraint and sculpture: check. High waisted hot-pants crept in; they been around since 2007 when Chanel and D&G decided to hit us hard with ’em. (Remember Gwen on the cover of InStyle with the sequent pair? Then Beyonce shortly followed on her own cover the same year) But any-who, on to the other important pieces I spotted.
- Chunky, embellished jewels- focus on rings ( See nOir Jewelry post)
- Sky-high platforms- new lavender Christian Louboutin’s
- Cat-eye lenses
- Striped sweater
- Tiffany blue nail polish (get the color from: Quirius- Jamaican Dream)
- Red/Nude, plump lips
- Chanel accessories
- Lace, lace, LACE- big Fall 2010 trend
I loved her interlude, the mascara running down her face, and the dusting off of her, Destiny’s Child, and Jay-Z’s grammys; it gave us that bitchy Beyonce we love oh-so-much. Other ironic fact? Mens-wear inspired garments are the biggest focus for designers at the moment; what are the odds she’d be fixing a car in the opening scene? Hmmmmm… This is probably my favorite video from Bey, hands down. I’m sure you’ve seen it, but who cares. I can watch it over and over. And now that you know what to look for, enjoy. ~ C.M.
