Beyonce' September Vogue Cover is ground-breaking for more than one reason!
Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, gave Beyonce full permission to take editorial control over the project which is scheduled to come out as the fashion bible's September issue.
Queen Bey's Vogue cover is out, and it's all you need to see today. Adorned with a flower crown, flaunting a fresh face and clad in an all-white Beyonce Knowles looks like the epitome of natural elegance. And what better way to unleash the cover of year to her fans, than sharing it by her own self on her Instagram!
This comes after Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, gave Bey full permission to take editorial control over the project which is scheduled to come out as the fashion bible's September issue.
But hold on, there's more to the cover than you thought.
Exercising all her control over the project, Beyonce recruited a 23-year-old photographer, Tyler Mitchell, making him first-ever black photographer in the 126-year history of the magazine to shoot a cover, reported USA Today.
The 36-year-old blessed her fans and followers with eight shots from the fashion shoot and labeling each of them better than the other would be a gross understatement.
The main shot shows her in her frilly Victorian dress, as she stares directly at the camera, gripping attention like she always does. It's just the right amount of chic with a bold natural essence to it - something that surpasses expectations by a great length.
In one shot, she's shown standing on the steps, shielding her eyes from the sun, and in another, she is adorned with more flowers than the cover photo. It seems that she has really indulged in her obsession with flowers this time because her look is nothing like you've seen before.
From sparkling diamond necklaces to a spread out tulle skirt - Beyonce's photos are loud and just captures the beholder's intrigue. Which makes sense, considering not only is she gracing the cover for the second time, but she has also been given full liberty and freedom to write the captions and decide which photos make the final cut for the upcoming September issue, as reported by the Huffington Post.
Her story accompanying the cover speaks about her heritage and self-acceptance, especially post pregnancy. She has also written about her ancestry, expressions of freedom and of course - her legacy. One very poignant line from the piece now published by Vogue, reads: "I come from a lineage of broken male-female relationships, abuse of power, and mistrust. Only when I saw that clearly was I able to resolve those conflicts in my own relationship."
