Beyoncé Covers the December Issue of British Vogue!
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, popularly known as Beyoncé, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She’s been known for her unique style and fashion sense. The “Crazy in Love” singer has been frequently quoted saying that she loves to dress sexily. When she participates in a show or music album, her dressing sense “is absolutely for the stage.”
Beyoncé made her ramp modeling debut in September 2010. She went for Tom Ford to launch her in the fashion arena and she walked on the runway sporting dresses for the Spring/Summer 2011 collection designed by him.
Beyoncé’s Arrival in the Fashion Arena
The People magazine recognized her as “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” in 2012. American media and entertainment company Complex Networks identified her as the “Hottest Female Singer of All Time” in 2012.
Roberto Cavalli, an extremely reputed name in the world of Haute Couture mentioned that the “The Pink Panther” actress uses different fashion styles while working on various music albums.
American international monthly men’s magazine GQ (formerly Gentlemen’s Quarterly) placed the “Dangerously in Love” singer on the cover of its January 2013 edition. She was also placed in the “100 Sexiest Women of the 21st Century” list.
The African-American community often has criticized Beyoncé for her dressing style and sporting lighter skin color. In 2007, a professor of music at Northeastern University, Emmett Price, defended Beyonce. He said that Beyoncé had to face these comments due to her African origin. Racial discrimination plays a huge role in the backdrop of these criticisms. According to Price, white celebrities are accepted when they dress in an unconventional fashion, but the dynamics change for the celebrities of African-American origin.
The American monthly fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue has supported Beyoncé several times in the last two decades.
In 2013, Beyoncé criticized H&M, the Swedish multinational clothing retail company, for changing her skin color and making it lighter in their promotional images. Vogue supported her story by mentioning that only “natural pictures [should] be used”.
In an interview with Vogue in 2013, Beyoncé mentioned that she considers herself to be “a modern-day feminist”.
In the September 2018 issue of Vogue, Beyoncé talked about her experience during her pregnancy and the birth of her twins Rumi and Sir Carter. The world-famous photographer, Tyler Mitchel, took her photographs for the cover.
British Vogue December 2020 became an instant hit due to the tantalizing fashion sense of the 40-year-old mother of three.
1. Vogue Cover: Black Elastic Nylon Mesh Bodysuit
