We like to imagine the A-list are all sitting by their phones anticipating a call or a WhatsApp from Anna Wintour, but Beyonce seems to be the lucky lady as, judging by this photo, she is this September’s cover star.
This photo was leaked yesterday on Twitter by Beyonce’s fan account, Beyonce Legion, and while it certainly looks real enough to us, questions were initially raised about whether it’s legit or just some realllllllly good Photoshopping skills.
But the evidence points to the fact it’s for real – Marc Jacobs has since regrammed the photo as Beyonce is wearing one of his designs. And surely he would know whether he lent it to her or not? Marc said: “Here it is! #Beyonce in #MarcJacobs on the #SeptemberIssue of #Vogue #twoinarow. WOW!!!! I wouldn’t believe it until I saw it!!! 2 in a row! I don’t think anyone has ever had 2 American Vogue covers in a row!! As if the beautiful Nicole Kidman cover wasn’t wonderful enough…Now, the gorgeous Beyonce in our gown and coat. THANK YOU SO MUCH ANNA. We are all so proud!”
Bey will be the first African-American female musician to grace the September cover of US Vogue, but she’s also got two more US Vogue covers under her belt along with a whole host of international Vogue covers.
The September issue of US Vogue will be available from Friday 14th August. We can’t wait to see what Queen Bey has to say (whilst staring at more gorge photos of her, obvs).
