If Rumours Are True, Beyoncé Is Making History with Vogue’s September Issue

The internet is freaking out right now because Beyoncé is maybe, probably on the cover on Vogue‘s majorly important September issue.

A Bey fan account on Twitter posted a photo of the alleged cover today, ahead of its official release on Friday. But, is this a good photoshop job, or is it a history-making moment for the fashion and music industry alike?

While Vogue is yet to comment on the matter, if this shot is in fact legit, then Bey will be the first-ever African American musician to cover Vogue‘s September Issue. She will also be the third African American woman to appear solo on the cover of the issue, following Naomi Campbell in 1999 and Halle Berry in 2010.

This isn’t Bey’s first time at the Vogue rodeo. She’s graced the cover of the mag twice before: for the March 2013 issue as photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, and the April 2009 issue as photographed by Mario Testino. But nabbing the coveted spot for Vogue‘s September issue is a major coup. 

This wouldn’t be the first time one of Vogue‘s September Issue’s have been leaked before its official release, with last year’s cover, featuring “Instagirls” Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss, revealed by fashion blogger Bryanboy.

The difference here is, Bryanboy is a fashion insider, if you will, not some devotee who set up a fan page to show just how devoted he is.

Still, we’re all for Beyoncé gracing the highly coveted spot on the September issue, even if truth of the matter is still up in the air.

This Man Turns Himself Into Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian and More — and It’s Amazing

Those of us who wish we could recreate Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala looks will be insanely jealous of this next fellow, a 20-year-old student who can transform household items and dollar store finds into gorgeous duplicates of some of our favorite celebrity gowns.

Mina Gerges’ Instagram @keepingupwithmina shows him posing as various celebs in homemade versions of their luxury garments. Gerges has posed as Katy Perry in Moschino’s Fall campaign, Rihanna on the cover of V magazine, Lady Gaga at the 2011 CFDA awards and more. Gerges completes the looks with hair and makeup, nailing each celebrity’s pose perfectly. But most impressive is Gerges’ ability to use regular materials to reimagine memorable celebrity looks. His remake of Beyoncé’s 2015 Met Gala dress was created with a garbage bag and rhinestones. And his effort isn’t going without due praise. Mashable mentions that some of the celebrities he’s posed as have reposted images of his work.

Of course, Gerges has received negative feedback from body shaming, homophobic trolls online, but that doesn’t discourage him: “I realized… that I was going to keep doing these pictures to push the agenda on gendered expectations that police us into acting or dressing a certain way in order to fit in,” he said. “You should celebrate and embrace your individuality.” (more…)
