What is an Queen without her crown? Looks like Beyonce doesn’t have to worry about that question. Queen Bey had social media buzzing with the release of Coldplay’s latest single, Hymn For the Weekend. Beyonce is featured on the single as well as in the music video. In the vibrant video Beyonce is adorned by a headpiece by designer Laurel DeWitt.
The Laurel DeWitt brand is known for their enormously creative headwear. All metal apparel and accessory pieces are hand-crafted gems. Beyonce’s stylist Zerina Akers paired the Laurel DeWitt crown with a glamorous design by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. It is a red and gold sequins embroidered gown fit for royalty. Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla gave details regarding the dress stating,
“ALL HAIL THE QUEEN! Beyonce floors us as she kills it in Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. She wears a skin net lotus sequins hand embroidered dress embellished in gold sequins and crystals lined with red. A floor length Exotica Gota coat is worn over it. Hand embroidered in Gota, beads and multicolored Resham and appliqué work, it is an ensemble that screams Goddess at the very top of her game.”
We have to agree with that description. However, the glam did not just stop at the exquisite dress and Laurel DeWitt crown. For the Coldplay video Beyonce also wears a necklace by Erickson Beamon. All in all Beyonce’s fashions set the bar for music videos of 2016.
While prorusing the Gram we came across a talented artist, Amr Mahmoud. Here is his interpretation of Beyonce’s crown and gown ensemble:
