Does Beyoncé ever look bad? In a new video posted to her YouTube channel, the singer jumps off of New Zealand's Sky Tower in Auckland, falling 629 feet to earth. Called the SkyJump, it's the highest of its kind in the country. For the occasion, Beyoncé applied her favorite fear-busting red lipstick, let her newly-long, blonde curls hang free and donned the full SkyJump kit—a flying harness and colorful suit. She's also clearly wearing white Isabel Marant wedge sneakers because, per the SkyJump site, "we don't want to see your jandals flying over Auckland city or hitting innocent pedestrians."
