I think the cover is nice and Beyonce looks good - but I really can´t stand her...

I had a groan when seeing the title of this thread but I'll take it back. I'm not a fan of her but she does have an amazing voice - I also like the fact that her private life is not so important for her to spill everything to the tabloids

I think she looks stunning on the cover, and for once I like this composition. It's not a smiling celebrity photoshopped to death.
And I think Beyonce works on this cover because its so simple and strips away all of the "Sasha Fierce" qualitities. There are no gold Roberto Cavalli gowns or big wavy hair - I think that's my favourite part of this.

But the cover line that always rubs me wrong on every magazine cover is "real women have curves". Tha's like saying every slim woman is not ... a woman - am I the only one with this sentiment?

So true, and this is the 4th cover this year with a new fresh subject.

She looks really nice on this cover! Wish they didn't pull her hair back like that, though.

I loved the styling and she looks great. I actually like it
This year Vogue has definitely been changing.

I suppose if Anna allows Britney Spears and Blake Lively on the cover, why not Beyonce. Maybe Mrs Beckham will get the chance to grace the cover...

^^Britney was on the cover 7 years ago (and many people probably won't agree but I think there was something quite fascinating around this girl, at least back then) !

Blake lively on the cover was a blasphemy !


and I don't like this cover either, if only we could see models on the cover of US vogue.
yes beyoncé has a great career yes she's a very strong and energic woman bla bla bla I'm so tired of seeing celebrities/actress/singers on the cover of the american Vogue.

I know it has been like this for a very long time and it will still be like this but I just wanted to say that I HATE it.

You're not the only one, I'm with you 110%.
As a tall and thin gal myself, I feel like this tagline is favoring the full figured women and degrading the less-than-average-weight women as "unnormal" or "deformed". Yes, women have curves; but does that constitute a real woman. What happened to the notion of being happy in your own body. Just as curvy is a body type, so it being thin. Its ironic how the American public just likes to look down on the thinner types, accusing them as a bad influence on young girls and yet it's taboo to look down upon an overweight woman.
So I'm with you on that, Tinsley.


As for the cover; I love it. It's very classic and simple and clean. I like her hair slicked back and the color of the dress looks wonderful next to her skin.
But I must say as much as I admire her for her talent and persona, she's no Sasha Fierce. That title is reserved for Sasha Pivovarova

That I will say, I'm glad Vogue is taking this year to break in fresh faces and not recycling the same ones.

Katherine Heigl's rumored April cover must've been pushed back to summer since her movie is now considered a summer blockbuster.
