Beyonce has landed the cover of the coveted September issue of American Vogue. Appearing in a glamorous Marco Jacobs Fall 2015 Collection gown with a darker hue of sleek manicured shorter tresses courtesy celebrity hairstylist Kim Kimble Beyonce’s look is effortlessly sexy.
Being the biggest entertainer in the world with a birthday in September would be enough in my opinion for Beyonce to cover Vogue magazine however the fashion bible has “global dominance” on their mind.
What do we want from the glamorous, powerful women we call divas or icons or cultural forces? We want them to want—and in our names get—everything they possibly can. Success in work and love. Sexual pleasure. Money and power. We want them to embody multiple fantasies. We want them to make us believe that exciting realities are just around the corner.
It used to be that the great pop stars with fashion and style gave us small variations on one grand theme. Tina Turner: minidresses and honey tresses. Janis Joplin: boas, bangles, and bell-bottoms. Cher: spangled striptease getups with mythic Third World touches. Nowadays fashion isn’t about the grand theme, it’s about juxtaposition, and it’s filled with allusions to movie and art history; to music and dance styles; to iconographies of race and ethnicity, religion and gender. Madonna opened the door to this collage approach. Today we see it in the wigs, masks, and sculpted costumes of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, the restless dazzle of Rihanna’s couture choices. And, of course, in the music, dance, decor, and looks of the ultimate streamed collage: Beyoncé.
While you can view the magazine on Amazon or purchase at now the official issue doesn’t drop until August 25.
What’s with Vogue magazine and the recent interest in barely there make up? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m all for embracing natural beauty but looking as if you just rolled out of bed to appear on the cover of what many deem the Fashion Bible is frowned upon. Right? I guess not, judging from recent cover girls like Kim Kardashian and now SeptemberVogue UK cover girl Emma Watson.
Kim Kardashian covered the July issue of Vogue Spain where she claimed via Instagram she went totally bare face with not a lick of make up only her jaw dropping wedding ring sharing her shine

Following in Kim’s footsteps is Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame. The young actress appears onthe cover dolled up in a Stella McCartney jacquard number with her hair effortless swept to the side. If anything Emma is serving pure innocence on the cover.
It was inside the mag that the conscious 25-year-old spoke about her role as a UN Goodwill Ambassador and the causes that she is driven to support.
The 25-year-old actress launched her HeForShe gender equality crusade at the United Nations last September with an impassioned speech that went viral on YouTube, and revealed she has found new purpose since deciding to balance her on-screen jobs with her work for HeForShe, and role as a UN Goodwill Ambassador.
“Part of me relaxed after I took on that position, it gave me a sense of belonging and purpose.” Watson told Vogue of her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women. “Everything clicked in to place, in a way that it hadn’t before. I understood what I’m here to do and knew where to channel all this energy that has been coming at me. I now feel this sense of peace. People say that I’m different since I did it.”
