Pop princess Ariana Grande has come a long way from her Victorious days. 10 years later, with a Grammy to her name, the star has just released her sixth album Positions. Filled with upbeat pop hits featuring an assortment of features from stars such as: Doja Cat, The Weeknd and Ty Dollar Sign. The album has unsurprisingly stormed up the charts and slotted right into the top spot, right where Ari belongs. Lead single of the album, Positions, also shot to the top of the charts. Positions is a song of female empowerment, showing us ladies can do it too. From ‘cooking in the kitchen’ and ‘I’m in the Olympics, way I’m jumpin’ through hoops’, Ariana shows she can do it all.
With the bar set high from the album and previous music videos, pressure was on Ariana to deliver with the video for Positions. Amassing over 98 million views already, the music video sees Ariana as President of the United States channeling her inner boss lady.
Here at Fashion North, we LOVE the video and the iconic outfits worn. With Ariana posing as the President she makes for the most stylish President in history! Throughout the video she reps her famous high pony, giving us major hair envy for days! However, this time with a 90s inspired side fringe which has recently been adapted by models such as Bella Hadid. As the song says switching positions, Ariana transitions from cabinet meetings, to the kitchen, and in the bedroom- each scene sports a beautiful 60s inspired outfit. A real theme of class and sophistication runs through the video, girl power!
Ariana begins the video posing as President in a cabinet meeting in a 60s inspired black and white Balmain outfit. She has her hair tied up under a white beret with a pair of statement Pearl earrings to match. The outfit is finished with a pair of white gloves. This outfit serves major looks and is very well co ordinated.
Ariana then switches her ‘position’ to being in the office, where again she sports a vintage all black and white outfit with the staple beret.
Once again, on cue as she sings the lyrics switching the positions, her role from President is reversed to her being in the kitchen. However, no ordinary kitchen maid, dressed like that! Grande teases her cleavage in a beautiful cream lace corset top complimented by the pearl earrings.
To us one of the stand out features (other than the AMAZING fashion) of the video is Ariana’s makeup. Ariana sports the perfect cat eye look which compliments her features. We all know how hard it can be to get winged eyeliner perfect, however, we don’t imagine Ariana struggles too much with her team of makeup artists!
