Beyonce graces the cover of Vogue’s September issue and is stunning, in a word, in an amazing lilac dress made all the more amazing by her famous hourglass figure. Photos and behind-the-scenes video, which you can see here, have quickly become a hit on social media.
The music superstar and icon is nothing less than iconic on the Vogue September cover which is emblazoned with the headline, “Just B. Beyonce and the Art of Global Domination.” And landing that much-coveted cover is just the latest evidence of the domination.
Yes, it’s an achievement, as the still-influential fall fashion issue of Vogue has a long history; the traditional print edition typically has more than 700 pages and weighs quite a bit more than an iPad or a Kindle that would hold the digital version. Yes, even in this day and age, the original Vogue September is a welcome site when it hits newsstands, some time after its digital incarnation.
But either way, in print or in pixels, Beyonce is dazzling on the cover and in the inside photos shot by the legendary photographer Mario Testino. And on an historical note, Beyonce is only the third black woman ever to cover the U.S. edition of Vogue; she was preceded by Noami Campbell way back in 1989, and, Halle Berry in 2010.
Yes, she’s stunning, particularly in a photo in which she is seen in a sheer floor-length black gown, with her back and her world-famous derriere facing the camera. Tasteful, and stunning.
As for the interview, that’s not yet been unveiled, but check right back here back for the details, as no doubt the global influencer that Beyonce is will have more than a word or two or three to say! In the meantime, Vogue is gleefully teasing the reader with a bit of bow-down-and-worship parlance: “Call her, in the songs, She Who Must Be Obeyed–in the palace, in the bedroom, in the hood, on the road, and on the runway.”
Yes, no doubt, Beyonce is at the top of her game and will have much to say. But in the meantime, see the soon-to-be iconic Beyonce Vogue September cover, photos and behind-the-scenes below!
