Beyonce’s ‘CR Fashion Book’ Photo Shoot Is Typically ***Flawless: 9 Gorgeous Pics

Just when you thought Beyonce would slay the MTV Video Music Awards and then disappear until it’s time to collect her next batch of Grammys, the game-changing diva posed for CR Fashion Book and even wrote them a poem. Shot by Pierre Debusschere (he also helmed her stunning “Mine” video) and styled by Carine Roitfeld, the shoot is one of Bey’s best. Hell, she even has a Chanel surfboard strapped to her back in one pic!

The issue arrives on September 4 (a date which also happens to be Queen Bey’s 33rd birthday), so the shoot chronicles her life and career. There are references to her self-titled album, music videos and even past photo shoots. As for the commentary? Well, Beyonce writes about Blue Ivy and the inspiration she gets from children in general.

“There’s someone, we all find out soon, more important than ourselves to lose,” she muses. “I feel a deep bond with young children — all those photos in my dressing room — especially those who’ve been stricken. Children I’ve met across the years — they uplift me like pieces of moon and guide me, whispering in my ear.” How lovely. Peruse all the pics up top.
