    If you've scoped a video by Beyoncé, Solange, Rihanna, Snoop, or Gaga (the list goes on and on) in the last five years, chances are, one ferociously chic woman was leading the team behind the lens. We're talking about director Melina Matsoukas. This inspiring woman has an eye that's earned her platinum status among music's elite — and, after making her acquaintance, we're officially drinking the Kool-Aid. Donning bonkers-in-the-best-way outfits and copping a "I don't give an F" attitude, the statuesque beauty is a force to be reckoned with.

    Fresh off of a Grammy win for Rihanna's "We Found Love," the visionary agreed to invite us inside her killer DTLA loft (and closet!). Plus, she gave us the inside scoop on near-death moments and a few hilarious stories that involve our favorite couple in the biz (keep reading…). And, since graphics make her world go round, she rocked five glorious, avant-garde ensembles for your viewing pleasure, too. After peeping our vivid tour, you'll see why this genius is a total chart-topper!
