Beyonce 'Party' Music Video Look By Look

Good Lord, Beyoncé's just making the rest of the human race look lazy and inert as hell. Um, seriously with this DELUGE of videos lately? Not that we thought for a moment that Ms. Bey would take building Shawn Corey Carter's family in her baby cave as some ticket to kick it but wow if she isn't on a serious roll. Let's see, "Love On Top" came out a scant week or so ago and "Countdown" was released earlier this month. NUTS.

The thing about "Party" that's so inviting is that it's all about summerfuntimes, cookouts, pools, drinking suspicious concoctions in iced tea glasses in trailer homes (that you enjoy the luxury of leaving), chilling with SUPERCUTE girlfriends, and the hook is SO anthem-y "We like to party, ay, ay etc., etc." that it almost (ALMOST) makes you feel like it's not cold as cripes outside and about to be winter for SIX. MORE. MONTHS.

So, yeah, we love how evocative all this al fresco flouncing is, plus, we REALLY love the fashnerd Easter egg that Beyoncé (again, as if in a concerted attempt to make the rest of us look like complete layabouts) totally shot a Dazed & Confused cover shoot and editorial ON THE SET of this video and that issue dropped in June. Anyway, the styling in that issue was BANONKERS and the same can be said of this video, which has a majillion fetching ensembles. Let us get up in them.

ORANGE NAILS, DOOR-KNOCKERS, AND D&G

Respect to any lady who can rock D&G animal print whilst holding a thing of bubbles with foil in her hair like she's channeling space aliens and DYNAMITE orange nails and massive earrings who doesn't look insane but looks beautiful. Who but she f'really?

STARS, STRIPES, SOLANGE'S INCREDIBLE HAIR

Oh, right. There's two of you in this freakishly attractive family who make us insane not just with boatloads of panache but the most weirdtrestingly incredible hair? There is nothing about this outfit that I don't want (chiefly Americana TopShop shorts), and there's nothing about this outfit I could pull off. Mastery. So want that hair. Super bad.

SIDEBOOB, TANK, AND A FANNY PACK

Um, this? Yeah, I'm just looking fierce in a Wildfox tank top in the kitchen of this here double-wide thingamadood, and despite the fact that at some point in this video I am sauteeing something on the stove, I am also wearing a SEQUINED fanny pack. Yes, it's potentially flammable. Yes, I use it to stash my herbs and spices.

TECHNICOLOR BUSTIER, TOPKNOT

I know a video look by look is all about the clothes and this stained glass bustier is nothing sort of marvelous, but can we discuss how flawless girl's armpits are? What kind of exfoliant is she using? We bet it's made of diamonds (non-conflict ones—Beyoncé is not a monster).

GLITTER PINK LIPS, CAT'S EYES, AND CRIMPING

Holy beauty dexterity, Batman, these cat eyes are serious business. The gold-tinged smoky lids paired with the boldest violet liner below the lower lashes reflect into Bey's eyes in such a way that her brown eyes look CRAY, like orbs of copper forged in fire or something equally mystifying. Candy pink lips sprinkled with glitter, mega-volume crimped (not to be confused with krumped) hair, and MARDI GRAS baubled earrings certify this look as party-ready.

PEEK-A-BOO BOOTS AND A FUR GILET

So remember these Rodarte by Nicholas Kirkwood beaded peek-a-boo platform boots that, EXCUUUUUUUSE ME, were made of pony hair on the upper? Well, yeah, so these are them but with extra leather spats modeled on a plastic lawn chair with a fur vest. WHAT? #nextlevel

LOLLING WITH A LOLLY AND DIOR HEELS

Dior. Tahiti wrap-around sash heel. Beyoncé legs. Big hair. Equally big sunglasses that mirror the bull's eye frill of the bra top. The circle of the sucker. And its shadow. So, so good.

DISCO CHIC WITH A RETRO HEADBOARD

The gobs upon gobs of gold jewelry, the PLUSH pout, the scintillating sequins, the complementary retro WICKER (barf but it's apt and kinda hilarious) headboard, the SHAG cushion, there is only one human person living who could bring a strange class to this scene and it's the hottest chick in the game.

GETTIN' CUTE ON THE COMMODE

GAH. And then she has the gall to sit pretty on the porcelain THRONE while putting on her makeup to remind you that even if you seethe with jealousy about Bey getting to be Bey, that mostly you just really want to be friends with her.

FLYEST PANTSLESS DUO EVER

A saturated neon yellow piece-dyed fur coat (chinchilla????) with no pants. It's SUCH sacrilege that it's amazing. Plus, with Kelly by your side rocking a magenta hotpantsuit with embroidery and hardware galore aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the winking sparkle of jewelry on her lady V area? What could go wrong? Also, I love that in this still they look like they're doing the Yung Joc "It's Going Down" motorcycle dance. Mostly cause I'm old and my sense of humor leaves a great deal to be desired.

BESPOKE LOUIS VUITTON FEATHERS

This Peter Pan collared feather suit is BESPOKE Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton. Think about the implications of that. And then consider how beautiful just the gold, snappy, entirely functional BACKING of each button is. And then cry a little. Holy crap, I just noticed the starched, elongated cuff of the sleeve. Makes me feel WRETCHED about myself.

ABOVE-GROUND AND IN STYLE

AHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, wow, you know what's crazy about this incredible fuchsia bathing suit? I've been watching it move during this whole scene and I swear to God, it's not made of lycra at all but silk or something. Dipping it in an above-ground pool on a flotation device is VERY taking a Goyard tote to the beach.

SO HOT SHE'D MELT ANYTHING

SEE, told you she was shot for a magazine article as she was shooting a video while holding an ice cream and stepping out of an RV in a custom Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci jumper and vintage Pucci pants in an Honour latex suspender belt, giving you the most drop-dead gorgeous ''SSUP?" look ever.

BOOM! AND THAT 'DAZED & CONFUSED' COVER TO BOOT!
