My heart skipped a beat when I heard about BEY’S new video “RUN THE WORLD”, I was expecting the usual hair flipping dance moves, the intimidating facial expressions and of course TONS of beautiful back up dancers. What I wasn’t expecting however was a beautiful celebration of designer couture dresses in one single music video. Beyonce wears the hottest names and even new comers in her “RUN THE WORLD VIDEO”, but of course what better way is there to illustrate strong feminism and power than through donning strong couture one-of-a-kind pieces.

Dress and shoes from Gareth Puh
Rings by young designer Larucci, who has made pearl necklaces for beyonce’s “WHY DON’T YOU LOVE ME” video.

Dress by Emilio Pucci, which is now one of her favourite designers.
Also in Pucci, this dress was particularly difficult to get as it was scheduled to appear in the next issue of VOGUE magazine USA. It is particularly striking as it is styled with a pair of army boots, we haven’t seen anyone pair the two together in the past.
