Stylist Marni Senofonte reveals the style secrets from the video shoot for Beyoncé Knowles and Nicki Minaj’s new song.

Stylist Marni Senofonte is behind the cool video for track Feeling Myself. It’s set at a music festival, and was filmed at Coachella earlier this year. Talking about the trendy clothes on show, Marni says Beyoncé was always on hand to offer her advice.

“You know, some of the clothes were actually Bey's. A couple of the bathing suits were hers and the rest we kind of just shipped out and had things made. We had two days, so it was just kind of like, what looks good? What do we want to do?” Marni told US Elle.

“Bey was so cool. She was kind of like my first assistant on the job: 'We should wear this, Oh I have this.'”

Marni, who counts the likes of Kim Kardashian and Mary J. Blige as clientele, was nervous to collaborate with Nicki, but says she was a dream to work with.

Outfits for the shoot include festival favourite low cut denim shorts, slogan tees and cool headwear. They can also be seen wearing fluffy creations in the sunshine.

“Bey loved the furs. LOVED them. She was like, 'We have to figure out how to make these work.' Nicki is wearing Chloé and Beyoncé is wearing Oscar de la Renta. And it was so funny: we had to have them Uber-ed [cab company] from Palm Springs to LA, then we sent them back, then we needed to bring them back again. It was wild,” Marnie smiled.

“I loved the furs, too. I really wanted to make happen as well. I think my favourite shot is them in the kiddie pools with the pink furs.”
