It is no surprise that Beyonce is truly a legend that will go down in history, conquering every aspect of the entertainment industry. But Queen B can now add to her list of accomplishments as she is crowned the first black female musician ever to grace the September issue of Vogue magazine.
The superstar already claimed title of the first non-athlete, non-model African-American woman to feature on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine back in 2007. And she now takes place as the third woman of colour to appear solo on the infamous September issue of Vogue after Naomi Campbell and Halle Berry. The Grammy award winner also holds the title of having the most magazine covers by any black female artist with way over 300 covers worldwide.
In the sultry photoshoot shot by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino, the mother to 3-year-old Blue Ivy shows off her curves in a variety of ultra sexy dresses in muted colours, including a sheer figures-hugging Marc Jacobs gown from his upcoming fall collection. Along with dampened tresses and a modestly made up face, the legendary icon infiltrates the camera with a fierce gaze.
The feature entitled “Just B; Beyonce and the Art of Global Domination”, cannot be more apt for the determined, dazzling diva that never ceases to amaze.
Vogue also released a short video from behind the scenes of the shoot for their biggest issue of the year, the clip sees the singer flashing us a glimpse of her playful side through all the glamour as she arrives on set, poses for the camera and even plays with a toy aeroplane.
