Beyonce has a long history of wearing gowns and accessories by Arab designers, and in the video for her new song, Spirit, she has chosen to wear a dress by a Lebanese-US designer.

The yellow attire that the singer and her dancers are wearing in the desert scenes of the video is by Norma Kamali, the designer announced on Instagram.

"So happy to be a part of the visuals so beautiful thank you," Kamali wrote. "And to my team for getting it done!"

The New York-born designer is known for her parachute-like designs and her Sleeping Bag coats. She is also credited with popularising shoulder pads in the 1980s.

The yellow dress Beyonce wore was described by Christene Barberich, co-founder of Refinery 29, as "an embodiment of [Kamali's] eternal vision".

The video is a veritable visual feast. The singer contrasted high-fashion gowns with a variety of barren and stark landscapes.
