Queen Bey as she is fondly called by her fans sits high on her throne as Vogue Magazine once again, looks into her reign in the music industry in its September 2015 issue. The cover which was shot by Mario Testino showcases the beauty of this music goddess and also accentuates those curves that we are very familiar with.
The story was written by Margo Jefferson and part of the script talks about the expectation that people have of glamorous and powerful women in the society. It says, “It used to be that the great pop stars with fashion and style gave us small variations on one grand theme. Tina Turner: mini dresses and honey tresses. Janis Joplin: boas, bangles, and bell-bottoms. Cher: spangled striptease get ups 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: Beyonce”.
