Behind The Scenes: Monica “Everything To Me” Video

Last night I spoke with R&B Diva who just landed in snowy Dallas from the sunny west coast where she filmed her new video for her hit single “Everything To Me”. Mo was shocked to hear that one of her favorite fashion designers committed suicide yesterday. She immediately dedicated her video to the iconic designer.

Mo sent over these pics of the beautiful Alexander McQueen fashions she wore in her new video.

McQueen was found hanged in his London flat yesterday morning. He was despondent over the passing of his mother the week before. Her funeral was set for today.

Monica writes:

The video is a take of the movie “Obsessed”. It takes lots of different turns as you see me attempt to protect my family throughout the video. Today was however bittersweet. All of the clothing was made by the amazing Alexander Mcqueen, and learning of his death was heart wrenching. My stylist Marni and I were devastated. I dedicate this video to him, and his beautiful visions that helped us to achieve all we wanted and more. Life is short. We must all enjoy each moment.

On the set of Monica’s new video “Everything To Me”

J Records artist Monica was in Los Angeles earlier this week to shoot the video to her chart-climbing single “Everything To Me” from her new album Still Standing (set for March 23rd release). Fabulously dressed in a stunning Alexander McQueen blouse and gown, Monica takes a star-turning role in the drama-filled clip directed by Benny Boom.

Cincinnati Bengals wide-receiver & Twitter star Chad Ochocinco (aka “Ocho Cinco”) plays Monica’s love interest.

    I heard of Alexander McQueen, but I didn’t follow him or his clothing line closely. I really like the black & white outfit. I also like the style cut of the dress, but not the fabric.

    Since Monica came I out, I loved her style and continue to love her style. I thought she looked a little too grown to be rocking the short do at 15, but she was probably an old soul even back then. ;-) Her stylist Marni does a great job picking out Monica’s fits.

    lovely dress indeed

    Monica looks great, though I am not feeling her new hair do…it looks ok in the last photo. Such a sad story for this great designer. Monica wears his designs so well in this video. Awww look at Mo with the little girl, I wonder if she wants a girl next.

    Sidenote: loving this song, Everything to Me. Glad the label is finally moving forward with the project.
