Beyoncé Covers T Magazine


Beyoncé brings her boundless beauty to the cover of T, The New York Times Style Magazine. In the chic shoot, shot by Juergen Teller, the “Woman on Top of the World” dons the latest in designer fashion.

The “Partition” singer, who will kick off her “On the Run” tour with Jay Z on June 28, is all smiles while modeling a black top and jeweled necklace on the cover.

Queen Bey changes into a $7,500 Miu Miu dress and Chanel sneakers for one fun pic, and rocks a white Vince T-shirt and black Louis Vuitton pants in another.

The article touches on her record-breaking album and impact on pop culture. “Black women have always been dominant figures in American popular music, but no one, not even Aretha Franklin, has reached the plateau that Beyoncé occupies: pop star colossus, adored bombshell, ‘America’s sweetheart,’” writes Jody Rosen.

According to TMZ, Beyoncé and Jay Z dined with Solange at Café Amelie for more than two hours on Saturday.
