If there's one celebrity that is surely on top of the world right now, it's Beyonce, and the Beyonce Countdown video showcases the pop star's joyous time of her life.
The pregnant superstar dons a short black wig with blunt bangs in the video, which is completely uncharacteristic of the star, who is known for her long, flowing blond locks.
The Beyonce Countdown video also features a minimalist, toned-down feel that is always welcome in the star's videos. The '60s-inspired video is refreshing and has a strong contemporary feel. It's great to see Beyonce branching out and exploring different ways of expressing herself.
"I was...paying tribute to the film 'Funny Face' with the legendary Audrey Hepburn," explained Beyonce. "My biggest inspirations were the '60s, the '70s, Brigitte Bardot, Andy Warhol, Twiggy and Diana Ross ... I've always been fascinated by the way contemporary art uses different elements and references to produce something unique."
