The coveted spot as the cover subject of Vogue’s September issue has gone to none other than the fierce and talented diva herself, Beyoncé. Looking absolutely gorgeous and even “flawless” in a curve-hugging ensemble while styled with a drenched yet divine appeal, the beauty is certainly striking and deserving of the sought-after cover girl title.
The photo of Bey, which leaked online Wednesday to a massive and eager audience, portrays the musical powerhouse, mother, and self-professed feminist, not to mention wife to rap royalty, in a perfect balance, as she is confident and strong, yet feminine and vulnerable in her most raw form. The publication sums up the importance of not only the Vogue September issue, but also the stunner they selected to cover it.

“There is only one September issue, and there’s only one Beyonce.”
Vogue masters the perfect description of the diva and allows the words of master designer Marc Jacobs to dismiss any negative stigma that is often attached to the term “diva,” which is used to describe Bey frequently.
“The word diva is used for so many female performers, and it often means they have reputations for being difficult, but she exudes charm and a lovable quality,” says Marc Jacobs in the Vogue September issue.
Titled “The Unparalleled Reign of Beyoncé,” the September feature on Queen Bey is perfectly suited to the star. As MTV notes, making the September issue of Vogue is like making history.
“Vogue‘s coveted September issue is the stuff of legend — heck, there was even a whole documentary about it. Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour usually saves it for the most influential celeb at the moment, and this year, she’s chosen a cover fit for a queen.”
Beyoncé is no stranger to the renowned world-wide publication, as she was awarded cover on additional occasions, including March, 2013, and April, 2009. More importantly, Beyoncé is just the third black woman to make her way onto the September issue of Vogue, with Naomi Campbell and Halle Berry taking the coveted spot previous to the Drunk In Love songstress. Beyoncé is among one of the most beloved celebs in the world, according to new following stats posted by Daily Mail, so this honor is only fitting.
As noted, the photo. and reported news about Beyonce in regards to the Vogue cover, was leaked on Wednesday, which means that the information has not yet been made official. However, as MTV relays, the announcement of Bey’s presence on the cover of the September issue is expected to be released Friday.
