Beyoncé's Next Surprise Project: A Designer Shoe Collab

If her totally out-of-the-blue album drop back in 2013 has taught us anything, it’s that Beyoncé is the kind of superstar who loves surprises. And, clearly not just the musical kind, because we just learned that she’s currently working on a top-secret shoe collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti. Even better, it'll be hitting shelves sooner than you can say "flawless."

For years now, Beyoncé's been wearing the Italian designer's sexy statement heels to awards shows, Nets games, and her own performances, as shown here — Jay Z even name-checked Bey's love for the brand in his 2007 song "I Know." Now, Zanotti has revealed to Forbes that Bey is lending her expertise to a single pair of stilettos:

“Beyoncé has very clear ideas — she knows exactly what she wants,” he explained of their partnership. “I’m working on finalizing the shoe with her stylist right now. And, Beyoncé will then say what she likes and what she doesn’t like." No surprise there. Whether she's releasing music, channeling fashion bloggers, or just sharing workout videos with the masses, Beyoncé has always followed her singular vision. 

According to Forbes, her vision this time is a pair of "ultra thick platform stilettos," scheduled for release within two weeks. Sure, this project might not be quite as involved as, say, Beyoncé's upcoming Topshop line, but when the rare chance comes to sport a pair of Queen Bey-approved heels, we're still going to take it.
