There is no denying Beyonce’s greatness.
And that was the thinking behind her stunning photo shoot for the September issue of Vogue, of which she is also the resplendent cover star.
The 33-year-old superstar looks incredible in the shots, taken by famed photographer Mario Testino, for the fashion tome’s annual big-fashion autumn issue.
In a preview of the issue on Vogue’s website, Queen Bey is also shown in a skin-tight Marc Jacobs dress and coat, with a sultry wet-haired look.
The shots are accompanied by quotes from the great and the good from the fashion world, with Marc Jacobs gushing: “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 loveable quality.”
Fashion designer Stella McCarthy adds: “She’s the whole package: primal, rare, delicate, beautiful, and powerful… her appeal crosses art forms, genders, and generations.”
It’s the third time the 33-year-old has been a US Vogue cover star, after her debut in 2009.
Previous September cover stars have included Naomi Campbell, Jennifer Lawrence and Cara Delevingne.
