Bey-hold Queen Bey! The “Flawless” singer graces the September issue of Vogue.
On the stunning cover, shot by Mario Testino, Beyoncé models wet hair and a lavender embroidered dress with a beaded purple jacket draped over her shoulder.
The cover text reads: “Just B: Beyoncé and the Art of Global Domination.”
She also makes history, becoming the first black female artist to cover the September issue of Vogue, their biggest issue of the year.
This marks her third U.S. Vogue cover. She previously appeared on the March 2013 issue, shot by Patrick Demarchelier, and the April 2009 issue, photographed by Testino.
In the issue, her friends in the fashion world sing her praises. “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,” says Marc Jacobs, while Stella McCartney adds, “She’s the whole package: primal, rare, delicate, beautiful, and powerful.”
The issue officially hits newsstands on Aug. 25, but you can gets yours starting Friday on Amazon and at Target stores.
Bey also made her own video with behind-the-scenes footage from her cover shoot.
