Beyoncé Sizzles in W Magazine [Photos]

Beyoncé

All hail Beyoncé. The “Run the World (Girls)” singer captivates with her beauty in a Gucci silk shrug, bra and briefs by Nina Ricci, and Louis Vuitton hat, mask, and boots in one of the stunning images from her cover shoot for W magazine’s Music & Style Issue. In the colorful photos taken by French photographer Patrick Demarchelier, the gorgeous goddess flaunts fashions by renowned designers including Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, and Dolce & Gabbana.

“I wanted this record to come from a raw place,” she told the magazine of her fourth album 4, due June 28. “Playing Etta James in the movie Cadillac Records really changed me. It was a darker character, and I realized that if anything is too comfortable, I want to run from it. It’s no fun being safe.”

Check out 8 photos from the high-fashion shoot below.

    @INCAS, she looks 40 something in most of her pictures and they did a bad touch up on most of the pics. there’s nothing flattering about the photos. Just bright colors.

    @Diego, You can’t push back an album that has already been shipped; it’s impossible and Columbia won’t allow it! What artist in this day and age is #1 for their talents? Only Adele is, everyone else i.e. [Rihanna/Katy Perry etc] are #1 for their looks or their rebellious public image! #truth

    @Smack, that is so untrue and unfair to rihanna/katy etc. Im sorry but rihanna and katy are #1 becuz their music is suburb. im tired of ppl sayin rihanna is jus #1 becuz she looks good. Well news flash, ciara, cassie, ameria christina milian etc looks just as good and they aint #1. People fail to realise that rihanna brings out hits, hits that are so that even haters and ppl that hate rihanna loves. point blank

    @meme, Music is suPurb? lmao yes she’s real deep, “sex in the air you know I love the smell of it.” She don’t even write her own shit. As for Katy, I give her props, she writes her songs & some of them DO have meaning like Firework & Pearl. They both can’t sing though…You’re a delusional stan of that small ass navy. point blank

    @Diego, Correction. Columbia wants her to re do her album because it leaked. Beyonce wants to release 4 still as it is. All Columbia cares is about sales & I’m sure her record breaking 6 grammys in one night makes it clear that she can do & will do as she pleases. As great & emotional as that album is, no one started paying attention to who top the charts until when?……exactly, a few months ago.

  15. Lets be REAL

    Look Beyonce fans. Beyonce is not the Queen, when you say Queen what genre is that? Rnb? because thats Mariah Carey/Whitney, Pop? thats Madonna and Janet Jackson, Hip hop soul? thats Mary J Blidge. Beyonce is so talented but she is extremley boring. Her interviews are all the same boring decoder answer, “im inspired by” “cadillac records”, “travelling” she is just boring. None of her songs connected. Thge album is no.100 and something and shes done ZERO TV promo or publicity instead shes in Europe doing a totally useless tour. Beyonce, you are talented, but its time to take an EXTENDED break. Thats All.

    @Lets be REAL, U act like bey fans are the only ones who call her queen bey. There are tons of magazines, sites, artists, etc who have called her queen bey. Bono, who is a legend, was the very 1st 2 call her that way back in 2006. And if u want interviews about sex in the air & other bullshyt then read the redhead’s interviews. King b is known 4 her talent not telling u all her business in interviews. U sound pressed.

    @Lets be REAL, thats funny i havent seen any sources or the media calling mariah carey or whitney the queen of R&B? LOL

    Beyonce is just called Queen B because she’s good at everything she does! Singing, dancing, live performances, 16 grammys, music videos. Girl Bye!

    “Playing Etta James in the movie Cadillac Records really changed me. It was a darker character, and I realized that if anything is too comfortable, I want to run from it. It’s no fun being safe.”

    Now I see why the album cover looks so risque, I’ve heard the leaked album and there are only about 2-4 songs out of 12 tracks that stand out. Looking at her career shes always played it safe, thats of her and her teams own doing, now I’m wondering is it too late. I spoke to someone and they said this album around for her reminds them of when Christina Aguilera did Bionic, she didnt really know what direction to go in so she tried to do something different and it didnt really work with the critics.

    @Jay S., i so totally area. Beyonce is really the xtina of the urban world. sh*ts load of talent but really dont have a distinctive song or career direction like britney or rihanna. I think talented artist try to hard. If beyonce had done dance track or atleast music that is current she would be shittin all over these chicks but she tries to hard to be different. nobody feelin that.

    @meme, distictive song or career direction? Bitch you must be stupid! Is Beyonce & Christina supposed to sound the same on all their albums…that shit would get boring. And idk how you say that about Beyonce when she is known to be the hardest working woman in the music industry. Christina has 1 bad album out of 4 and all of sudden she’s not relevant? Unlike your fav Xtina has 5 grammys, #1 tours, & #1 albums. Good fucking Bye!

    Lmao at the dumb haters believing RUMORS. U fail automatically lmao!!! It dont matter if all her singles flop. She is not a singles artist. Thats 4 the lesser girls. We all know king b sells albums & wins grammys. When ur fave wins 6 grammys in 1 night then u can be allowed 2 talk shyt. King B is that chick & everybody knows that which is why she is praised & respected so much. Gorgeous pics! Keep making them haters mad King B!

    People need to stop comparing her to Christina. Christina released her last ablum in 2006 and buy the time she released Bionic most of her fan base had already moved on. Beyoce may take 2-3 year breaks but she never really goes away. As far as this era is concerned I actually love the album. I think the album will do fine however I dont think this album will make multiplatinum land and if it does it will make it barely!!!! but it will debut at number one. I predict atleast 300-350K first week. Also RTW may have Flopped hard but you cant say that for BTNH it just started its trek on the charts and its picking up it airplay. And if you dont like what I said you dont have to reply.

    It’s true with great success, comes great haters. I’ve been a Beyonce stan since 03 and 4 is her greatest work since B’day and the material is dying to be performed live. Beyonce will be the King no matter how they shuffle. In being a stan for so long, I have noticed the patterns of waves of haters that come with each album release, and over the course of promotion and numerous undeniable performances you get even more believers. KING B IS HERE TO STAY #BELEEDATWOE
