History has just been made, people. The one and only Beyoncé has recently been revealed as the cover star of Vogue’s September issue—arguably one of the most coveted covers within the fashion industry.
Though Bey has been featured by the U.S. publication twice before—fronting the April 2009 and March 2013 issues—this instance is especially awesome because it marks the first time a black female artist has covered Vogue’s September issue. Furthermore, she is also the third black woman in general to grace the cover alone.
You can take a look at the upcoming issue in the image above. Stay tuned as more information is revealed.
