Pregnant star Beyonce Knowles has debuted the video to her song ‘Countdown’. Check it out now!
The video is a feast for the eyes, with Beyoncé taking on a variety of iconic looks. Her makeup when the video opens recalls the mod styling of Twiggy, but soon enough, she segues into full-on Audrey Hepburn mode, taking both her look and dance cues from the 1957 film “Funny Face.”
From there, we see the pop star in a variety of bold, brightly colored bathing suits and a black-and-white hat, set against a constantly changing background of vivid colors. It’s an iconic image that brings to mind the classic Vogue photo shoots of yesteryear.
The pregnant diva’s baby bump is less visible in the bathing suit scenes but is featured prominently earlier in the clip and is rubbed lovingly later in a scene that features 10 different incarnations of Beyoncé in a loft space. The visibility of Beyoncé’s pregnancy varies throughout the video, indicating she likely shot a great deal of the footage for “Countdown” earlier in her pregnancy and more recently re-shot or re-conceptualized the clip to reflect her growing belly.~mtv
