Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour gave Beyonce control over this September issue.
Furthermore, this is Vogue’s biggest and most influential issue.
It even has its own documentary; The September Issue.
Similarly, this unprecedented move is out of character for Anna Wintour, but it is said to have been negotiated as a key part of Beyonce’s contract, according to a Huffington Post report.
Bey used her power to have 23-year-old black photographer Tyler Mitchell to be the one to take her picture.
Tyler Mitchell is the first photographer of colour to shoot a Vogue cover in its 126 year history.
While Beyonce is controlling the magazine cover,her contract also states she is to select the photos of her inside the magazine.
Likewise,she is also writing her own captions in long form, according to the Huff Post.
Even more,Queen Bey has graced the cover of Vogue before;

While she has graced the front of the magazine on various occasions, the September issue is the biggest of the year.
All in all, we can’t help but wait and see the masterpiece that will come out of this September Issue.
