Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé Style Slay in "Feeling Myself" Video

This Coachella themed music video for Nicki Minaj's new single 'Feeling Myself' featuring Beyoncé, was released exclusively on artist owned music streaming service, Tidal this May. Tidal is a tiered membership package, paid only service without the 'free' option that competitors like Spotify offer. Despite limited accessibility to the full video, and rights holders diligently pulling leaks from Youtube, Vimeo, and other video streaming services as they crop up, the release has been successful and the buzz has yet to die down. 'Feeling Myself' is sure to be a summer anthem and playlist staple for girl squads everywhere this season.

The video itself is a visual gem in it's rawness and captures the essence of a festival it-gal to a T. It is the perfect dosage of confidence, attitude, and pink to make anyone want to party and vibe those 'Chella vibes through the night. Stylist Marni Senofonte pieced together looks from houses/lines like Moschino, Givenchy and UNIF to name a few, curating the eclectic aesthetic that characterizes the video.

Keep reading for my fave looks and moments from the video!

Nicki and Bey are both wearing fur pieces from Philipp Plein's whimsical FW15 RTW collection which you can fawn over here. The rest of the look is super accessible! The socks are American Apparel, here. Nicki's swimsuit is also American Apparel, here.

The footwear in this look is super wearable and affordable at under the $200 mark each! You can get Beyoncé's Doc Martens here and Nicki's UNIF boots here.

Beyoncé's Chicago Bulls one piece was custom made but online retailers were quick to jump on the beckoning of this soon-to-be-swimwear trend. You can get your hands on a similar piece here.

I'm a big pull-over windbreaker fan and the palm-tree motif on this hoodie by Off-White makes this 90s inspired piece appropriate festival attire. Unfortunately, this is hoodie has sold out in the wake of Queen Bey breaking the internet in it. Instead, I like this black and white Joyrich windbreaker, here.

Who better than hip-hop's resident 'Barbie' to sport a swimsuit from Moschino's Barbie-centric SS15 collection?

Get Nicki's one piece here or check out the two piece that I think is equally as cute and sassy here.

There is speculation that Nicki's sequinned Givenchy jersey reading "Pervert" above the number 17 was a jab at rival and ex-label mate Tyga's rumoured romance with 17 year old Kylie Jenner. Neither party has commented so this may just be a coincidence. A suspiciously clever and relevant coincidence...

Get Nicki's Givenchy Jersey here.

Here I leave you with a couple .gifs of 2 of the most successful and celebrated women in the music industry throwing french fries at each other in $20,000 furs. #goals
