NEW York, New York — Beyoncé Knowles- Carter will grace the cover for the new September issue of Vogue Magazine — in which editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has given Queen Bey “creative control.”
Penned by Beyoncé herself, she discusses Coachella, pregnancy, motherhood, the OTR2 tour, legacy, and much more. Beyoncé sought out 23 year-old photographer, Tyler Mitchell, the first Afro-American photographer to shoot a cover story for the print magazine.
“When I first started, 21 years ago, I was told that it was hard for me to get onto covers of magazines because black people did not sell. Clearly that has been proven a myth,” Beyoncé said. “Not only is an African American on the cover of the most important month for Vogue, this is the first ever Vogue cover shot by an African American photographer [Tyler Mitchell].”
Vogue is a fashion and lifestyle magazine covering many topics including fashion, beauty, culture, living, and runway. Vogue began as a weekly newspaper in 1892 in the United States, before becoming a monthly publication years later.
