Beyoncé's 'Run the World (Girls)' Video: The Fashion Breakdown!

05/19/2011 at 01:00 PM ET

Beyoncé is never less than fierce, but in her new video for “Run the World (Girls),” the first single off her fourth solo album, she was F-I-E-R-C-E! From her scarlet Alexander McQueen to her black Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown, the singer proved she can bust a move in fashion’s finest. Other notable looks in the Mad Max-style video, set in the desert, are a white feather-laden Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci and two sexy cut-out gowns from Emilio Pucci, the label that dressed her for the recent Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. And let’s not overlook her accessories — from a fistful of geometric Laruicci gold rings to knee-high Sergio Rossi gladiator boots with plumes and studs, it’s enough to make a Beverly Hills housewife jealous. Tell us: What’s your favorite look? Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

Nothing new under the sun (pieces and ideas of most artists videos) except more FLESH and the female version of her husband.

Beyonce is so overrated and need to sit down somewhere and have a baby. She is not all that and does not know anything outside her glam squad and team. Shaking you azz is not talent.

is it just me, or did beyonce look white? maybe it has to do with the hair, but in a couple of shots, she looked like britney spears or something

Do not like the video!!! At some point Beyonce needs to become an elegant woman and leave the bumping and grinding to the young women singers, even though this has less than her usual videos. I am sure I will enjoy her other songs on her CD, but this one is not my favorite.

You can sing, dance, you are rich, fine, your husband is rich! Let them continue to have hate….haha! Laugh at them and keep it moving. Love ya!
