Beyonce Is Flawless on Vogue’s September Issue
Photographed by Mario Testino, Beyonce dons a vintage-looking lace number and sequined jacked by Marc Jacobs worth $16,800. Her outfit offsets the natural glow on her face and wavy hair.
“The word diva is used for so many female performers, and it often means they have reputations for being difficult, but she exudes charm and a lovable quality,” Jacobs told the magazine.
While she is the first black musical act to be on the cover of the September issue -- a bible for fashionistas -- she is the third black female star to grace the cover for this special month. Supermodel Naomi Campbell and Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry previously covered this issue in year's past. This is also the third time Bey will appear on the cover of Vogue -- this time she's solo.
And if you're still wondering about the hype around this opportunity, the September issue is the magazine's largest book of the publication and is seen as the most important. There was even a documentary about the making of this particular issue. Vogue announced the new cover earlier this morning (Aug. 13). However, news broke on Twitter on Wednesday evening (Aug. 12).
"The rumors were true. Beyoncé is the cover star of the September issue of Vogue," fashion source Nico Bellay tweeted.
While we get a preview of her photo shoot, including a video showing what happened during her time with Testino, the September issue of Vogue will be available tomorrow (Aug. 14) via Amazon or at Target stores. Otherwise, you can get the magazine when it officially hits newsstands on Aug. 25.
