Beyonce is making history, as she takes what sources are calling, ‘unprecedented’ control over Vogue Magazine’s September issue, the most important issue of the year. Sources say, Anna Wintor, the magazines famed editor-in-chief has given Beyonce full control over full the cover, the photos of her inside of the issue and the captions which Bey has reported written herself.
Queen Bey has chosen 23 year old black photographer, Tyler Mitchell, to shoot her pictures. “I depict black people and people of color in a really real and pure way,” Mitchell told the NY Times back in December.
This is the first time in history a black photog shoots Vogue’s cover and the first time a cover star has been granted this much control, as Wintour usually gives her cover subjects little to no control over the issue. It’s also reported that this may be Wintour’s last September issue.
Can’t wait to see the creative direction Beyonce and Mitchell take!
