I like it. If anything, I expected a headshot or a close-up but when I opened the thread, I was surprised. Beyonce for me looks great here. Menacing and fashionable. Plus she's a sort-of role model too. Ü

I wouldn't be surprised if Beyoncé herself had a lot to do with this particular choice of cover shot. At any rate, the styling is very typical for her, and she loves to show off that leg everywhere, whether it's appropriate or not. While there's nothing wrong with showing a bit of leg per se, I must say I, for one, was annoyed to the brink of a brain freeze when she insisted on pushing out that thigh at the 2007 Academy Awards for every single God forsaken shot.

As a cover shot, it isn't that awful, but as a cover shot of Beyoncé, it's rather old. Never mind the overexposure of Beyoncé's legs, it's her expression and bad hair that kills it for me. She even looks a little cross-eyed here, though that might just be the size of the preview that's throwing me off.

In the end what it boils down to is this -- does this cover make me want to buy this issue? And no, it doesn't. Though I don't fail to appreciate Allure coming out with a different kind of cover in this way, I fear it has more to do with their choice of cover star than any real desire to come out with something new.

(That's a gorgeous[!!] earlier Allure cover from Beyoncé, though, VickiB! She looks so much more beautiful less sexed up, letting her personality shine through. I'm surprised to see there actually was a time when she could come out with something like that. Thanks for posting! )

The cover's not bad, but it isn't anything extraordinary either. Personally, I like Allure's usual close up shots of their cover girls than full body shots.

I agree, Beyonce needs a makeover. Not that she isn't beautiful, but her style has been pretty much the same for years. She needs to change hairstyles, hair color or something.

I like that Allure went with the full body shot instead of the cliche celeb headshot.

You are hard to please. She's one of the most photogenic woman in the world.

So agree with you. She's sometimes trying too much to be like everybody popsinger... sexy kitten. She was so cool with her big curly hair (back in Austin Powers time). She was sexy but one of a kind. I like it too when she has bangs.

She used to have a pretty face.

...I don't think I like the cover. But maybe it's that I don't like Beyonce in that position on the cover - but I'm not sure who could pull it off?
