07 Aug BEYONCE IS PHENOMENAL AS USUAL FOR VOGUE’S SEPTEMBER ISSUE
It is obvious that Beyonce Knowles is a phenomenal being. Everything that she does is phenomenal. She constantly pushes the bar of excellence as far as it will go. We have watched her excel at life for over 20 years, from teenager to mother of three. Beyonce’s Vogue cover has been one of the most anticipated covers of the year for a plethora of reasons. One of those reasons being that The Queen was given full control of the cover and the second being that she chose 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell, a young black photographer to shoot it, making him the first black photographer in the magazine’s 126-year history.
Beyonce opts for minimal makeup for this shoot as she wears cornrows and stuns in Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Gucci and an exquisite floral headdress by Phil John Perry.
Beyonce talks about birthing her twins, Rumi and Sir, and the challenges that she faced. She opens up about having an emergency C section and feeling different after. “I needed time to heal, to recover. During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be.”
She talks about providing opportunities for younger artists and tracing her ancestry, discovering that she comes from a slave owner who fell in love with and married a slave. On freedom, Beyonce admits that she does not like too much structure and she likes to be free.
“I am accepting of who I am. I will continue to explore every inch of my soul and every part of my artistry. I want to learn more, teach more, and live in full. I’ve worked long and hard to be able to get to a place where I can choose to surround myself with what fulfils and inspires me.” – Beyonce
