Video: Beyonce ‘Run The World (Girls)’

19 May 2011, 15.27 | Posted in Music, celebrity, nail art | 2 comments »

Beyonce’s first single, “Run The World (Girls)” from her upcoming album, “Four,” has arrived. The song is fine and the theme, women empowerment, is fairly standard issue  for her. A few things to look out for: product placement shot of Converse One Star sneakers at 1:21, hyenas on chains at 1:56, Beyonce giving a pixilated finger at 2:05 and also flashing her stiletto mani at 2:24, making this nail profile an official pop star trend.

Converse Prom Sneakers

ConverseProm1 Converse Prom Sneakers

A cute idea whose time is long past due–sneakers for prom. We’ve been harping on this for a while, but for women in their teens and twenties (and thirties, forties and up if they’re on the progressive side), sneakers are a part of their fashion wardrobe. And it’s funny, too, as much as we feature sky-high heels (see previous post!), I’ve been noticing lately in my travels around New York that one of the defining characteristics of younger women is that they do not wear much in the way of heels. Tons of military boots, canvas lace-ups and flats, but not much past half an inch. Via Glamour.
