It’s scant been a month since Beyoncè released her music video for “Party”, which has had us speak-saying Kanye’s refrain—”You a bad girl and your friends bad, too. You got the swag sauce, you drippin’ Swagu.”—to ourselves in the mirror as a private mantra ever since. A month since Bey had us forgetting, if even briefly, that we were barrelling full-steam ahead into six months of winter because of all her saturated neon-ness, blow-up pools, cookouts, and the ubiquitously tinted tumblers of summer that doth always runneth over. As if ogling Bey’s many, MANY outfits alone weren’t enough of a fashion fix for you, she’s uploaded some behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot with nearly four whole minutes of voyeuristic, preparatory fashnerd porn to get your eyes bugging. Fittings and styling irons and makeup application, oh my!
On-set stylists reveal the video’s fashion inspiration, “trailer trash, ghetto fabulous, out there, edgy, put on everything, the shoes, the jewelry, the bling, EVERYTHING,” and Beyoncè gives commentary on the entire video-making process. They even show Queen Bey in the editing room (still looking fabulous, might we add, with curled hair, a deep red lip, and minimal eye makeup), watching not just the actual music video footage but tape for THIS VERY behind-the-scenes feature your eyeballs are watching now! #META
