Black Is King made us realize we need a cow print dress, stat.
If there's anything more visually stunning than Beyoncé herself in her new visual Black Is King, then it's the fashion donned by Queen Bey and her plethora of co-stars.
Set to the music from Beyoncé's 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift, Black Is King is an artistic spectacle. From elaborate sets to costumes that belong in a museum, the film is chock-full of memorable moments—namely that fantastic cow print outfit.
Animal print has been having a moment for quite a while. Last summer saw the reign of the leopard midi skirt, while winter welcomed an abundance of zebra print. Those prints surely aren't going anywhere anytime soon, but lately, they've faced competition with the latest arrival from the animal kingdom: cows.
Despite her ties to The Lion King, it's no wonder that Beyoncé chose to don a custom Burberry bodysuit for Black Is King. It gives off an unexpected Wild West aura, rather than a more typical jungle look. Now, suddenly, we need to fill our entire wardrobes with cow print.
Below, we've rounded up our favorite cow print pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe.
New York designer Susan Alexandra is already a go-to for accessory junkies looking to break the mold of typical upscale purses, creating playful, hand-beaded bags and jewelry in bold colors and prints.

There's an entire genre of YouTube videos that consists of nothing but news bloopers, and they're equal parts hilarious and panic-inducing.
"Right after the break, we're going to interview Erik Weihenmayer, who climbed the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, but he's gay—I mean, he's gay, excuse me, he's blind."
Back in the early 2000's a young news anchor in New Mexico had a slip of the tongue on live TV that has enterred the annals of news blooper history.

Cynthia Izaguirre had just gotten done reporting on a separate story discussing activism for gay rights, and was setting up a segment with the first blind man to climb Mount Everest, and her thoughts got twisted on the way to her mouth, resulting in a 14-second clip that would live on in infamy.
