Beyoncé covers Vogue in special September editorial

Vogue sees their latest iconic magazine covered by an equally iconic figure in Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. This issue is shot by said photographer, Tyler Mitchell, the fashion magazines’ first black photographer in over 125 years. He has created a whole gallery of artistic photos, along with a length introspective monologue from the legendary musician herself.

“After the birth of my first child, I believed in the things society said about how my body should look. I put pressure on myself to lose all the baby weight in three months, and scheduled a small tour to assure I would do it.”

“I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth to Rumi and Sir. I was swollen from toxaemia and had been on bed rest for over a month. My health and my babies’ health were in danger, so I had an emergency C-section. We spent many weeks in the NICU. My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. “

Baring it all, and also shooting barefaced, Beyoncé opens up about public perceptions, ideas of beauty, her children, heritage and everything in between. Read the full story along with the full definition gallery over at Vogue here or explore more fashion news by clicking the link below.
