Beyonce's new visual album, Black Is King, is very much a fashion celebration. It reads like a compendium of designer labels, from Valentino to Balmain, Mugler, Mary Katrantzou, Erdem and more.

From one outfit to another, the short film showcased her fierce style – thanks to her longtime stylist and costumer designer, Zerina Akers.

Black Is King was released globally to stream on Disney+ on July 31. It features a star-studded cast the likes of Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Rowland and Naomi Campbell, among many others.

Reimagining the story of The Lion King across the modern world, it celebrates people of the African diaspora.

"Black Is King is a labour of love. It is my passion project that I have been filming, researching, and editing day and night for the past year. I’ve given it my all and now it’s yours, ” Beyonce said on Instagram, when she announced the visual album in late June.
