Beyonce Films Visual In NYC: She Styles In A $3,195 Burberry Metal Plate Vinyl Trench Coat


YDBR can confirm that Beyoncé secretly filmed a new visual in NYC last night Tuesday (November 19). This is the second visual that she filmed so far for her new album which is rumored to be dropping by the summer of next year (2014). Back in August, Bey filmed a visual in Brooklyn’s Coney Island Park for her upcoming single “XO“. See the original post here!

Yesterday evening on a chilly Manhattan night, Bey invaded the streets in a $3,195 Burberry Metal Plate Vinyl Trench Coat paired with silver pumps and went to work. At the time of the press, I am not able to confirm what song she filmed a visual for.

Bey is giving us fashion in her Burberry trench. Bey’s velvet-finish vinyl trench coat features polished metal detailing, unlined for a translucent appearance, the vinyl contrasts with hand-applied epaulettes, topcollar and pocket trims in bold polished metal. The metal belt featured is not supplied. You can purchase this coat at Burberry.
