UPDATE (8/15/15): Designer Riccardo Tisci took to Instagram today to share the same outtake from Beyoncé's March 2013 Vogue spread. In his caption, he revealed that both Bey and Blue Ivy wear rocking couture Givenchy, furthering speculations that the original plan was to include the toddler in the issue.

Though Blue didn't make the cut, the Givenchy dress worn by Beyoncé did. You can check out the published image below.

Just days after she was revealed as the cover star of Vogue’s September issue, Beyoncé hit up Instagram with a “Flashback Friday” image of her March 2013 cover for the magazine. It was a pretty appropriate post considering her recent milestone, but it wasn’t anything too noteworthy. That is until she followed up the post with another picture of her and Blue Ivy, which was captioned “the real cover girl.”

As you can see in the image above, the wardrobes of Bey and her then-11-month-old daughter seem too identical to be any sort of coincidence. They seem purposefully styled, leading many people to believe that Blue Ivy was supposed to be featured on the 2013 cover, or at least the spread.

If this was, indeed, the case, we’re not sure why this image didn’t make the final cut. Blue Ivy’s expression alone would have made it iconic.
