Last night Beyoncé released yet another surprise album, Lemonade, which premiered first as an hourlong film on HBO and then as an exclusive stream on Tidal. The film featured a star-studded all-black cast including Amandla Stenberg, Zendaya, Serena Williams, and Quvenzhané Wallis, and a lot of dense, rich imagery and fashion to unpack. Beyoncé’s longtime stylist, Marni Senofonte, styled the 12-track film, from hoodies over a dress to the dramatic canary yellow Roberto Cavalli number, and so much more. Click through the slideshow to see some our favorite looks from the feature.
Seeing Beyoncé roam through the streets as a jealous lover, smashing cars and fire hydrants complete with a ‘hot sauce’ baseball bat is incredible all by itself. Somehow Queen Bey makes this feel cheerful in layers of this canary yellow chiffon dress from Peter Dundas’ F/W16 collection at Roberto Cavalli.
Whenever ghetto-fabulous Beyoncé makes an appearance, it’s a good thing: These looks show a side of her that’s more approachable both personally and sartorially. From the blinged-out chain to the knee-length Hood by Air fur coat paired with a Yeezy crop top and leggings, this look is too good.
There’s still no credits for this look out yet, but I couldn’t stop staring at all the Victorian inspired outfits–this one in particular because she is underwater, in a crystal encrusted bustier and a gown, casually holding her breath.
Another Victorian lace gown that fits the old Southern aesthetic of New Orleans. Though it doesn’t get much air time in the video, the sleeves and silhouette in front of a blazing door leave us wanting more.
If having Serena Williams as your video girl wasn’t enough, Beyoncé laid back in a hand-beaded Swarovski crystal bodysuit by Kuwait-based designer Yousef Al Jasmi. The sheer detailing of the balloon sleeves and neckline demanded attention even with Serena twerking.
This was just an incredible shot. It’s hard to say what she’s wearing besides this tulle overlay. None of this matters because Beyoncé looks like a magical mermaid.
From the visuals for Sorry, in this scene Beyoncé dances sitting down in a marvelous, Nefertiti-esque braided crown and a metallic Zana Bayne leather cone bra.
Another dramatic gown, only this time a completely different feel. This Nicolas Jebran gown has Swarovski embellishment throughout with a high neck, and looks even cooler in the red lighting since the dress is actually a bright orange.
Last but not least, the scene that could be called ‘Black Girls Rock,’ with Zendaya, Amandla Stenberg and more. This was the most casual but of course styled with a striking ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom’ off-the-shoulder Rosie Assoulin top that boasts cascading ruffles as sleeves and paired camouflage pants.
