Weeks after the premiere of Jay Z and Beyoncé's "RUN" music video/fictional flick teaser, the stylist behind both music stars has come forward to dish on the must-see clip. #OnTheRUN
According to stylist Rob Zangardi, they emphasized putting a touch of Jay and Bey's hometown vibes into their outfits.
"The holster and western outfit was a nod to Beyonce's Texas roots. The torn Yankees shirt, baseball caps and ski masks were a nod to New York. Then there's the wedding ensembles (1:49), where they are meant to look like they got married on the run, Beyonce is in this beautiful lace dress and vintage veil while Jay is wearing a leather jacket, tuxedo pants and construction Timberland boots. The looks had to speak to these different scenes but still feel very much like them." (Billboard)
Zangardi also touched on how much fun they had working with Queen Bey.
"Beyonce was very fun and easy to work with. The collaboration felt like such a perfect fit because she got what we were trying to do and was completely on board. They both loved incorporating their hometowns into the looks and some of the symbolism, like the money print bikini (3:05) or the deck of cards print on Beyonce's vintage Moschino jacket she's wearing while having girl talk with Blake."

The record's visual premiered online back in mid-May.
Jay Z and Beyoncé are making us forget all about last week's drama by dropping an unprecedented trailer for their fictional film "RUN," inspired by their collaboration "Part II (On the Run)." The power couple play Bonnie and Clyde in the action-packed visuals, which feature an all-star cast including Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Emmy Rossum, and many more. But don't expect to see a full-length feature. According to the trailer, this film is "coming never." (Rap-Up)
Queen Bey confirmed speculated Jay Z tour rumors in April.
The singer on Monday announced a joint summer tour with husband Jay Z titled the "On the Run Tour," a nod to the pair's earliest collaboration, "'03 Bonnie & Clyde." The two have shared the stage many times before, but the upcoming dates are the first time they have embarked on a co-headlining tour--and with two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter growing up, it's probably not the last summer excursion they'll ever make.
