When you have Beyonce and Jay-Z as the faces of Tiffany & Co.’s ‘About Love’ campaign, you don’t just stop at a print ad and video campaign. The Carters and the American jeweller have just released a short film titled Date Night (no relation to Tina Fey show, FYI) as a special bonus to accompany the campaign.
Continuning the Breakfast At Tiffany’s trope of the campaign, the cinematic two-minute clip riffs on the final scene of the 1961 classic which depicted Holly Golightly in a cab as she deliberated about staying in New York City or leaving for Brazil to chase her love.
Date Night is directed by Dikayl Rimmasch and second unit director Derek Milton, and demonstrates the beauty and joy of everyday romance.
Instead of a cab, Bey and Jay-Z are seated in a Rolls Royce for a night out in town, with her playing a game of “he loves me, he loves me not”. To add to the old Hollywood vibe, an array of sparkiing bling designed by Jean Schlumberger who was the go-to jewellery designer for American high society in the ’60s and ’70s, adorns the couple.
Some of the jewellery featured in Date Night.
The jewellery pieces include the iconic Bird On A Rock brooch on the lapel of Jay-Z’s tuxedo, and Beyonce’s Ailsa diamond ring with more than over 10 carats of diamonds and the Ribbon Fan earrings that boasts over six carats of diamonds.
But the true gem of the film has to be seeing their nine-year-old daughter Blue Ivy make a cameo when as she jumps into the back seat to join her folks. Hit play to be entertained.
