Summer movie season is upon us and trailers for some of the most buzz-worthy flicks are coming in hot. But the best one we’ve seen so far is for a movie that doesn’t even exist. Over the weekend, Beyoncé and Jay Z dropped their star-studded “Run” tour trailer–and we haven’t stopped buzzing about it since.
You might be surprised to know that it only took three days to film the almost four-minute long flick that’s “coming never” to you a theater near you, and stylist Mariel Haenn is dishing on the details (like how Beyoncé bloodied up that Givenchy suit herself) behind all of Bey’s last-minute looks to Style.com and Essence. See each scene dissected by Haenn below before reading her full interview here.
Custom T-shirt; Triangl bikini bottom; Boot Barn cowboy hat; Agent Provacateur thigh-high stockings; Christian Louboutin pumps.
“This look obviously had a strip tease element to it but wanted to incorporate a gritty western vibe so we added the gun holster and cowboy hat with lingerie and a ripped up tee.”
Azzedine Alaia leather top and skirt.
“This vintage leather Alaia set was the perfect choice for, again, bad-ass and sexy but tough look.”
Vintage Moschino bomber jacket; Gold Earrings by Jack Vartanian.
“This scene was when Bey and her girl Blake Lively were having girl talk in the stairwell; so I wanted to make this look more streetwear inspired. Given the dangerous context of the video and the gamble that they take while on the run, we thought the deck of cards print fit the story line.”
Sherri Bodell Fur coat; Express denim cut-off shorts.
“This was a streetwear chick-inspired look while ‘On The Run.’ A cropped fur, leather bra and cut-off shorts were the perfect bad girl fit,” said Mariel Haenn who styled Beyoncé for the ‘On The Run’ concert trailer.
Vintage bandana shorts; Levi’s denim cut-off shorts; Hoorsenbuhs rings.
“This was one of our faves! I mean since she repped New York, we felt like this sequined and fringed bandana print body suit with cut-off shorts was the perfect way to rep where she’s from: Texas,” dished Haenn.
Givenchy white lace suit; Isabel Marant lace bra; Azzedine Alaia shoes.
“His and hers matching white suits was the creative here but we found this Givenchy Lace suit and cut the lining out to make it even more sexy. Added a white lace bra and ski mask for the added sex appeal.”
Playmates two-piece bikini.
“This (money bikini) was a specific last minute request from the Director Melina Matsoukas, so we had it custom made last minute for this scene specifically,” Haenn told Essence.
Triangl swimwear bikini to; American Apparel skirt; Vintage fur shawl; Christian Louboutin patent pumps.
“This scene was in a seedy club where she was in an altercation with another girl. We thought that wearing shades of pink was a great contradiction of nice girls while getting into a cat fight.”
Vintage Don Mattingly New York Yankees T-shirt; One Tea spoon denim cut-off shorts
“I love when Bey reps New York because she’s really repping her man, and what better way than a vintage Don Mattingly T-shirt cut-off with a little under boob. The vibe was casual and intimate while they were just hanging in their hotel room.”
Petro Zillia lace dress; Vintage veil.
“The idea here was as if they got married while on the run and decided to go non-traditional. We loved the idea of a racer back dress because it feels cool and sexy and would be a great feature while riding off on the motorcycle.”
