Queen Beyonce Covers The September Issue Of Vogue

“The word diva is used for so many female performers, and it often means they have reputations for being difficult, but she exudes charm and a lovable quality.” —Marc Jacobs.

Queen Beyonce covers the September issue of Vogue and you cannot help but admit that Beyonce is a phenomenon. The name represents so much, the September issue of Vogue adorns her with quotes that only befit the woman that is Beyonce.


” Her appeal crosses art forms, genders, and generations.” —Stella McCartney

According to Vogue;

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.


The most powerful thing about her persona is the unabashed pleasure she takes in her own body: its beauty, its power, its versatility.

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.


“There is a magnetic presence to her.” —Riccardo Tisci
