All the Looks From Coldplay’s New ‘Princess of China’ Video, Featuring a Sassy, Silk-Waving Rihanna

Coldplay released the music video for its new song "Princess of China," a collaboration with Rihanna, over the weekend. The clip borrows heavily from martial arts movie culture (perhaps too heavily, even), with lead singer Chris Martin paying Rihanna — all dressed up and presumably playing the titular Princess — a visit at her palace. Like every good couple in a martial arts film, they fight, with swords, and perform other outlandish stunts and dances for each other in front of lots of overwrought extras. That's courtship for you — to think nowadays a trip to Red Lobster can serve the same purpose. Click through our slideshow to see all the outfits, as well as our best guesses for the story line.
