Oh man. Beyoncé. Could she BE more outrageously happy. Everything about this ‘Countdown’ video is so triumphant and good mood making. That glow? That ‘I am gestating and making sentience in my belly because I am a magical lady’ glow? Something about it on Bey is just the winningest and the fact that in this candy salad of ‘60s pop art, she’s so vital and strong and CUTE the whole time makes the single that much more earwormier.

From the retro side-swept mini bangs, to the ENORMOUS lined eyes, to the almond-shaped PUMPKIN-colored nails, all the way to the syncopated dancing in vibrant monochrome which winks back to that iconic Audrey Hepburn sequence in Funny Face, we can’t help but get all the way waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay into this jam. And, thanks to our pal Ty Hunter, Beyonce’s hallowed stylist and all around wonderfuldude, we’ve got all the fashion credits (oh, HELLO Thierry Mugler black and white gonzo hammock sleeved dress) as well as a tidbit from the shoot’s incredible makeup artist Francesca Tolot.

No doubt you Little Monsters have already nailed the "watch it, learn the dance, load the video to YouTube, repeat" routine on Lady Gaga's music video for "'Yoü And I," which has shown up scattered like a trillion Easter eggs all over the interwebz over the past 48 hours. You've probably already gone and pored over all the envy-making FASHUN rampant in every frame.

You were all, "Where can I get a pair of those heels? Or that hat? Or ZOINKS, is that the custom leather HARNESS I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR?!??" Well, great news for you. Not only do we have aaaaall the fashion credits (thanks to Gaga fashion director Nicola Formichetti), but we've nabbed an EXTENSIVE, super exclusive interview and studio tour with Gaga's leather designer Zana Bayne, courtesy of our main man, Rory Rockmore.

Soooooooooooooooo, last Saturday I had the pleasure of sitting down with one of the baddest bitches in leather, Miss Zana Bayne, creator and HBIC of Zana Bayne Leather. Who is Zana Bayne?

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
