Beyonce has been enlisted to shoot the upcoming September issue of Vogue. Not only is this rumored to be Anna Wintour’s exit from the iconic magazine, she’s chosen Mrs. Carter to go out with a bang.
Music queen, Beyoncé, 36 reportedly has been given an ‘unprecedented control’ by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour over her September Issue Cover and queen B has chosen a black photographer to work with. This means it will be the very first time in Vogue’s 126-year-history to have a black photographer shoot its cover. www.africanglitz.com . . #beyonce #vogue #voguemagazine #Editorial #QueenB #voguecover #annawintour #tylermitchell #september #Magazine #africanglitz #africanglitzmag
Beyonce is said to have 100% creative control of the shoot.
Bey hired 23-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell to shoot the cover. Mitchell will be the first black cover photographer in the magazine’s 126-year history.
“I don’t have an elevator pitch when it comes to my work because it’s always evolving. It’s looking at people of color, black people, and black lives, and it has to do with portraying honesty and truth in that. I always wanted to see people for who they are with sensitivity and optimism. My only description would be that [my work] is about the black experience and humanizing black people.” -Twenty-three-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell in an interview with @thisgenerationdotcom in April 2018. Tyler is reported to be the first ever black photographer to shoot a @voguemagazine cover in its 126 year history. He will be shooting the #septemberissue and his cover star, who hand-selected him for the historic job, is none other than : @Beyonce. by @tylersphotos #representationmatters #behindandinfrontofthecamera
A source says Beyonce’ used her power and influence to get him the assignment. Although he’s shot for campaigns for Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, Wintour typically chooses photographers with more traditional experience. However this go round, it’s all hail to Queen Bey.
Beyoncé hasn’t graced the cover of Vogue since September 2015 photographed by Mario Testino.
While we’re at it, there’s a big rumor going around that Beyonce is bringing some sort of visual to Netflix. The Sun is reporting:
Her team are now in negotiations with Netflix to premiere the project, which would introduce it to a massive audience.
[Netflix] offered a seven-figure sum for Lemonade but contractual obligations with HBO and Tidal meant it didn’t happen.
Nothing confirmed from Bey’s camp. I’m sure this would break streaming records if it were a done deal. #NetflixAndBeyAnyone?
