Beyoncé's (Surprise!) New Music Videos: The Best Style & Beauty Moments

12/13/2013 at 12:20 PM ET

Forget Christmas songs. We know you’re going to be listening to Beyoncé‘s new album all weekend. The powerhouse singer played Santa dropping the gift of a self-titled record, which features 14 songs and 17 music videos. And of course the fashion in every vid is Beyond.

The clothes. The hair. The makeup. The singer went all out for each video, and we picked our top five favorite moments below.

1. This Cape and Crown Combo
Reminding everyone she is the Queen, Bey goes all regal in “Haunted”, wearing a velvet cape and a Swarovski black crystal crown by Michael Cinco. We also love the androgynous suit and necktie she commands the hotel halls with.

2. The Most Amazing Eye Makeup Ever
Want to try a bold — and we mean bold — eye look for your next holiday party? You can always copy the singer’s metallic blue and purple eye seen in her “Mine” spot. And now that we think about it, these videos explain all those hairstyles the star was experimenting with earlier this year.

3. A(nother) White Coat We Need Now
Olivia Pope’s coat collection? So two weeks ago. We’ve moved on to Beyoncé’s. She wears some pretty fierce outerwear, like this white fur-lined number from her “No Angel” video. You may also want to check out the long animal-print one she wears in the pop-arty “Blow”.

4. The Mother of All Statement Necklaces
There’s no lack of bling in any of the videos, but the crazy necklace by jewelry designer Margo Manhattan from “Blow” might be the most noteworthy. “From my background as a ‘theater baby’ my jewelry designs have always been inspired by theatrical style,” Manhattan tells PEOPLE in a statement. “Beyoncé is the ultimate style icon that fuses stardom and style to represent a statement. I love jewelry that speaks silently.” Uh, silently?

5. And This Hervé Léger by Max Azria Bathing Suit, Clearly
You won’t see it in the 30-second preview for “Yonce,” but the singer goes all-out glam in a burnt orange cutout one-piece, paired with a fur coat and crazy-high heels (natch). But you’ll have to buy the full album to see her dance around in it. Bonus: Joan Smalls, Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn also star in the video.

The singer’s fifth studio album — and first since 4 two years ago — is available exclusively on iTunes. What do you think of Bey’s fashion and beauty looks in her new videos? Are you happy she kept it a secret until now?

She looks so white in that first pic…

No, I don’t want a fur coat.

Have you seen the movie “The Ghosts in our Machine”? Yiu should.

I guess the fur coat shot was before she went vegan? Or is the veganism what we all thought, all about her and nothing about cruelty to animals.

Ross on

soon she’ll have a cleft in her chin and she’ll be MJ completely.

Crazy on

Is she trying to become white?

Lisa on

She looks good. Love the look in the first pic.

Anita Smith on

I love her eye makeup in “Mine”. I wish someone could find the brand she used.

Yup, just as I thought….hardly wearing any clothe as usual. Seriously, if you have talent, you don’t have to distract the lack of it with nudity.

Beyonce is so naturally pretty. So many girls look up to her, I pray she will realize that girls will try to dress like her. I wish she would dress like a lady because girls look up to her. I’ve her she was a Christian. I pray she will get back to those beliefs and dress more appropriately. She’s beautiful- she doesn’t have to be half naked to get attention. Praying for her.

For everyone saying how white she looks: As the relative of a cameraman/film know-it-all…darker-skinned individuals are often very difficult to light, because there’s a lack of contrast between shadow and light that happens with lighter-skinned people. As a result, a lot of times different techniques are used to really light up the person’s face and features so that they are well-distinguished. This happens in post-production, too. Additionally…Beyonce isn’t very dark to begin with, not in comparison to other celebrities like, say, Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne on “Walking Dead” (and is absolutely frigging gorgeous, might I add). Just throwing that out there.
