Beyonce will cover the March 2013 issue of Vogue, as revealed by fan Twitter account @BeyonceLite. Photographer Patrick DeMarchelier (Vogue U.K., Vogue Brazil) shot Queen B wearing Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, the same designer responsible for Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s Watch the Throne album artwork.
Vogue last profiled Beyonce for its April 2009 issue. The story begins, “February has barely begun, and Beyoncé is already having the biggest year of her life. Just a couple of weeks after her historic, indelible star turn at the presidential Inauguration, she has found herself, yet again, at the center of another worldwide television event with an unfathomably huge audience: the Oscars.”
Award shows aside, Vogue has obviously found that very little has changed. “Chart Topper. Glamour Wife. Style Icon. Filmmaker. New mom. Business mogul — Beyonce is at the height of her powers and writing her own script,” its March 2013 cover story tagline reads. Business as usual.
