If I had to guess who would be the person who would capture beyonce and I'd actually be floored by it Alasdair would be the one. Amazing

Ohhh goood! I was not expecting this until the end of March. Don't care much about Beyonce but I love Alasdair's photography so that'll do

She is not someone I was expecting to see at Gentlewoman but they did a great job. Love the cover, and the content seems great too.

I'm rather shocked she was even an option for a cover shoot for the magazine to be honest, both from her camp's point of view and from the magazines, I wouldn't have thought she was at all their target market. That being said, I really like the image a lot. I like Beyonce when she's toned down and just allowed to be beautiful like this.

What a spectacular issue, goddamn. Flawless.

I'm not a Beyonce fan but, by general admission, she is a super successful, super established, black businesswoman (unfortunately, a rare occurrence in our times). I don't get why you folks don't get why she was an option for the cover.

^ i have nothing against beyonce, but considering how over exposed she is in the media, i wouldn't expect her to be in a magazine that so far has featured (minus adele, maybe, who's anyway less all-over-the-place than beyonce) interesting women you don't get to read a lot / everywhere (if any at all).

The irony if Terry Richardson is the photographer of Susan Sarandon's feature.

This is her most convincing cover to date. It seems authentic and not so artificial.

Also, Jeneil has the best body in the business. I mean good lord!

I think what makes her suited for this cover is the fact that unlike most pop stars she has always had that strong independent woman and also has that pro women stance in her work as well as being one of the most powerful women in entertainment and a cross over one at that

I'm so thrilled with this cover. Perhaps Beyonce isn't the typical women you expect to see on The Gentlewomen but I think she fits quite well into the magazine's story. Beyonce is, as Urban Stylin said, a strong independent women which is also the sort of women I think the magazine see's as its clientele. I love the way Alasdair captured her, the portrait is stunning. And I'm loving many of the other previews too, love seeing Maisie Williams from GoT in the pages of The Gentlewomen. First Michelle Dockery from a few months ago, now Maisie, the editors are really good at picking great women to feature!
