    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.

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!
