Tap for Fashion Credits & Watch Beyoncé’s New Music Video, “Formation”

Remember when Beyoncé scared the shit out of all of us by releasing her new song and music video, “Formation,” out of NOWHERE like a damn dove from a magician’s coat sleeve?!?

Of course it’s perfect and worth it — not sure why you’d even ask, but my heart literally cannot take one more musical surprise attack. (Rihanna, bless you for the advanced notice on Anti, that was polite and appreciated.) It took me about three watches to come down from shock, which meant that it wasn’t until the fourth watch that I said to myself:

Hold up. Is that Gucci?


Oh it’s Gucci. (Alessandro Michele, how’s your heart doing?)

As for the other looks, scroll down to see. Shiona Turini (@shionat) — who kept this all very low key (and by that I mean zero key) at the MR breakfast for dinner — STYLED THE SHOOT along with Marni Senofonte (who did the dance outfits) and gave me the outfits scoop.

She’s like a human tap-for-credits machine.

Now Shiona/Beyoncé, if you wouldn’t mind, kindly tell me how to best-style a Life Alert.

Scroll baby, scroll…

    I’m ruining the trend, but the below comments are amazing.

    Wait what– Shiona kept this low/zero key? I’d say quite the opposite: Bey fans saw that an email leaked from Shiona’s end, asking for clothes for a video shoot, this ruining a surprise video drop for many. That’s never ever happened before from Bey’s camp. Sloppy to the extreme.

    Lots of good looks tho. But Ty would have never goofed like that.

      Hi there, without meaning to cause drama or add to the rumors, I will say this in full confidence: Shiona’s job as a stylist was to request clothes from various designers’ PR companies for the music video — it’s the same process as fashion editors requesting for photo shoots. The way that information was leaked was not through Shiona’s end.

      An unfortunate situation, for sure, but in the end, a beautiful music video with gorgeous clothes.

    Blue Ivy is so big now!!

  • Elis

    According to Gucci instagram the outfits in the pool scene are “Gucci inspired” what does that actually mean? Knock off?

  • I need to think twice before commenting… the photography is amazing, she is ugly as hell on the video / the song looks good, maybe too edgy – I need to listen it more times / She is a boom, but I miss more dancing!!



  • It’s like when a new Harry Potter book came out. I can’t deal. She has all these political references skillfully packed into a music video. I can’t. She slays with music, with dance, with fashion.

    I mean she’s recumbent on a flooded police car…how simple and powerful is that?!

    • Melissa

      So, so good. And can we talk about how the Super Bowl dancers were dressed in homage to the Black Panthers? Everything about this video and this performance was so powerful.

  • The fashion, especially the jewelry, was incredible in this video. Great blog post girlie!

    XO, Jessi

  • Amazing. I generally don’t like Beyonce but the 11/12 year old who spent every day on yahoo music . com watching music video after music video FREAKS OUT every time she puts out a vid. This one takes the cake, it’s so goooood.

  • Only emoji’s can explain now:
    ? ? ? ? ? ♥️ ?

  • When Beyonce releases a new video your instagram feed becomes scroll for credits instead of tap for credits.
