Every now and then, we allow ourselves to get caught up in the modern music crossfire and accept that, still, music videos make fashion (and more) go round.
It’s one of the most powerful ways to communicate, and, today, ladies and gents, we are going to enjoy a good Beyonce moment! Because she has this new video and this catchy phrase: Run the world (Girls). So who runs the world? Girls! (yes, I know you are tempted to say Beyonce, but let’s stick to the story now!) Take a look at the video below and let’s break it down, gently, after!
I only featured this for the pure and simple pleasure of being hype. Of being in the moment, musically speaking. I’m always on an alternative, retro – electro path so I find it pretty refreshing to have Beyonce steal the spotlight for a moment. She’s such a hardworking girl and even if I don’t always approve or understand her fashion choices, her influence is beyond dubitable and this is what fascinates me.
Now for a little facts check: directed by Francis Lawrence (I am Legend) and wrote by (among others) Beyonce and Nash, this is yet another one of Bee’s female empowerment music messages. You gotta love Beyonce for that, she’s always trying to tell women that they own it / rule it. It was premiered on April 21th (2011) and ever since, Beyonce’s Girls Run The World indeed. Musically. How about the fashion? The apocalyptic fashion of the video? Designs from Alexander McQueen, Pucci, Alexander Wang, Givenchy and more, it’s a fashion week in its own right! I’ll just say this: if I were to choose between Beyonce and Gaga, I will definitely go for the first, I always get the distinct impressions that she’s enjoying the music, she’s all about entertainment as for Gaga – her take – me – seriously is slowly getting on my nerves. It’s music, ya’ll! Just enjoy it?
