Ariana Grande is serving the world with her elite presidential look in the new “Positions” music video, and fans are exhilarated by her fashion choices. Grande’s looks are classic yet refreshing, and the video provides fashion inspiration to people across the world while subtly sending a message of hope.
In the new video, which premiered Oct. 22 and is the first promotional video for her new album “Positions,” Grande takes the position of President of the United States. Styled by Mimi Cuttrell, a celebrity stylist who has worked with Gigi Hadid, Normani, and Nicki Minaj, Grande looks supreme in several ‘60s inspired looks that are reminiscent of Jackie Kennedy: elegant, chic, and dazzling.
Grande first appears sitting at the head of a round table inside the White House, surrounded by her diverse cabinet.
Grande’s first look is a matching set from Balmain, featuring black and white contrast blocking with silver-tone hardware. https://www.instagram.com/p/CG5tpAsDSNf/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
She then dazzles in a luxurious checkered black and white Valentino cape, polished off with a white hat. https://www.instagram.com/p/CG5tFFTjYAI/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
Grande’s third look is a sexy white lace ribbed corset from Dion Lee, paired with a grey mini skirt and platform heels. She wears this as she lightheartedly cooks in the White House kitchen, spilling flour on herself and giggling.
Another notable look from the video is the knee-length white Gucci dress, with vertical black stripes on the chest and a horizontal stripe around the arm cuffs, paired with oversized pearls and an ivory pillbox hat.
Grande also looks amazing in an oversized white button-up cape from Lanvin, paired with white gloves, a white headband, and oversized earrings.
Grande is so perfectly accessorized that we are left wondering why she isn’t our actual president. Her attention to detail through the gloves, oversized jewelry, and pillbox hats, all create a cohesive flawless variety of looks.
Fans can’t get enough of her new look.

Over the years, Ariana Grande has undoubtedly carved her own aesthetic stylistically, creating a highly recognizable look that people around the world constantly try to emulate. If you’re going for the Ariana Grande look, you can never go wrong with an oversized sweater, knee-high heeled boots, winged eyeliner, and a half up half down ponytail or even just a simple high ponytail.
Teens, in particular, can’t get enough of Ariana Grande’s style either, and have taken to social media sites like TikTok and Twitter to appreciate her style, and oftentimes outright copy it. Teens participating in the #ArianaGrandeChallenge recorded themselves trying to copy aspects of her personality, demeanor, and style.
But as the world began to grow accustomed to Grande’s signature look, Grande certainly proved that she is capable of evolving her style, and misses no marks in the process.
As she sits behind the Oval Office desk, she kicks up her sparkly high heeled shoes as everyone crowds around her celebrating, sending a message of perseverance, hope, and joy.
Grande, who went through a tough period last year with the loss of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, the public breakup with ex-fiance Pete Davidson, and the terrorist attack at one of her concerts in Manchester, seems to be telling the world there is light at the end of the tunnel. Grande appears to be taking claim of her power in the world, all while looking sexy and self-assured. Her playful politically-themed music video comes at a time of doubt in the world, with political tensions high in the U.S. Grande’s celebratory stint in the White House lets fans know better things are still to come.
