Beyoncé is back in the spotlight again. She landed not 1 not 2 but 3 British Vogue covers.
The December issue of British Vogue (available for digital download and on newsstands Friday, Nov. 6) was shot by 21-year-old Kennedi Carter, the youngest photographer to shoot a cover for the UK fashion publication in its 104-year history.
Beyoncé, 39, wears a structured blazer with dramatic shoulder pads in one image, an athleisure-inspired ensemble with a matching neon bucket hat from her new Ivy Park collection in the second, and a see-through mesh catsuit in the final cover photo.
Oh! We can’t forget about the hair. The iconic singer rocks a variety of looks including a long blonde Afro, a slicked-back ponytail, and a sultry smoky eye.
We all know how private Beyoncé likes to keep her life. So when she opens up about any details we are all tuned in to what she has to say. Inside of the issue, the private singer opens up about fashion, family, and philanthropy with British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful. She also reflects on how 2020 has shaped her, telling the outlet:
“It would be difficult to experience life in a pandemic and the current social unrest and not be changed.”
“I have learned that my voice is clearer when I am still. I truly cherish this time with my family, and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life.”
So when she says “slow down” fans are afraid this could mean she is no longer going to be putting out music. The Beyhive is anticipating “B7” which stands for her 7th studio album.
Beyoncé has been dominating the last decade with projects including Lemonade, Beychella, The Lion King, Black Is King, and multiple world tours. She managed to do it all while raising daughter Blue Ivy and twins Sir and Rumi with her husband Jay Z.
Beyoncé mentions that she “spent a lot of time focusing on building my legacy and representing my culture the best way I know how.”
But amid a global pandemic, nationwide protests, and political unrest, Beyoncé has finally given herself a break: “I’ve decided to give myself permission to focus on my joy.”
She also opened up about stepping into her power when she became a mother and shared how her children have inspired her to elevate Black voices throughout her career:
“Something cracked open inside of me right after giving birth to my first daughter,” Beyoncé told the outlet.
“From that point on, I truly understood my power, and motherhood has been my biggest inspiration. It became my mission to make sure she lived in a world where she feels truly seen and valued. I was also deeply inspired by my trip to South Africa with my family.”
Beyoncé then continues by explaining her reason she dedicated her beautiful visual album Black Is King to her 3-year-old son Sir Carter.
“Felt it was important to uplift and praise our boys and to assure that they grow up with enough films, children’s books and music that promote emotional intelligence, self-value, and our rich history.”
The highly anticipated Disney film Black Is King released on July 31. In case you missed it, you can catch it on Disney +.
We can not wait for this issue to release. There are 3 different covers so I’m sure you can find one that you love. If you’re anything like me I need options, so I will be getting all 3.
