“The word diva is used for so many female performers, and it often means they have reputations for being difficult, but she (Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter) exudes charm and a lovable quality,” Marc Jacobs told Vogue Magazine.

The twenty Grammy Award winner and the most powerful female musician of 2015 Beyoncé Knowles-Carter made history recently by becoming the first African-American musician and third African-American woman to be featured on Vogue’s annual mega-issue in the magazine’s history. Former supermodel Naomi Campbell was the first in 1989, followed by Academy Award winner Halle Berry in 2010.
The cover text reads: “Just B: Beyoncé and the Art of Global Domination,” and Beyoncé looks amazing and breathtaking in Marc Jacobs sequins and frills with her hair wet on the cover of Vogue’s September issue, which is scheduled to be released on August 25, 2015. The September issue of Vogue is the most important magazine of the fashion calendar because it often comes in an over 900 pages long. There was a documentary about it in 2009. The 33-year-old fashion icon and “modern-day feminist” was photographed by Mario Testino for the epic photo shoot. Beyoncé poses in designer garbs and holds an embellished purple jacket, casually draped over her shoulder. Not only Marc Jacobs, but also Atelier Versace, Givenchy, and Stella McCartney designs are featured in her photo shoot.

“She’s the whole package: primal, rare, delicate, beautiful, and powerful,” Stella McCartney praised Beyoncé to Vogue. “Her appeal crosses art forms, genders, and generations.”

“The most powerful thing about her persona is the unabashed pleasure she takes in her own body: its beauty, its power, its versatility,” Vogue magazine writes of the star.

“All hail, Queen Bey!”

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, nicknamed “Sasha Fierce” and “Queen Bey,” posted images from the accompanying photo shoot to her Instagram account yesterday, August 13, 2015.

I am proud of Beyoncé Knowles and hopes she continues to do well in life and be a positive role model to young women across the world.

“All hail, Queen Bey!”
