Staying relevant on the go.

1. Now that we’ve had the weekend to process Beyoncé’s surprise album drop—and let’s face it, we had to decompress after binging on the 14-track visual album—read up on the directors behind each music video.
Boasting previous collaborations with 2Pac, Missy Elliot, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj (to name a few), veteran director Hype Williams’s repertoire speaks for itself. Though we have to say, we’re very much intrigued by newcomer Pierre Debusschere, a Belgian photographer and director who has worked with Raf Simons and regularly contributes to Dazed and Confused.

2. David Koma, designer of all those peplum bodysuits from Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter World Tour, has been named the next artistic director of Thierry Mugler, replacing über stylist Nicola Formichetti.
3. BAMIN (Build And Make It Now) loves GIFs, so we’re pretty stoked about this. The .GIFYs is an awards show “honoring the animated GIF as a medium, social commentary and art form”.  
4. It’s still a prototype, but soon you’ll be able to capture all the exciting things you see, right when your eyes react, in GIF form with the Neurocam. Until then, we’ll just have to Vine or Instagram it all.
5. Since we can’t stop obsessing over Beyoncé, here’s a designer and inspiration rundown of some of Beyoncé’s most mesmerizing music video looks. From Dolce and Gabbana to Ulyana Sergeenko, Queen Bey is killin’ it.
