That's nice.
I guess that cover line is just to reference all those exotic skeletons on the runway, certainly and fortunetly real normal women don't look like that.

IMO Beyonce is the epitome of the vulgar woman, all her "Bootylicious" videos are disgusting but I have to say this is a very nice cover, hopefully the pictures inside will be similar

it is an elegant cover but at the same time boring hopefully her ed will be interesting, never read an interview of hers in my life... i'd rather see her perform than talk.

Psshhh, I don't understand why Beyonce got a lot of haters. I guess those haters are just jealous. *drinks coffee*

I flip flop on Beyonce. I used to dislike her and now I've begun to enjoy her greatly. This cover is beautiful as far as I'm concerned.

I have to say I don't like this idea of "deserving" a Vogue cover. Who really decides who is deserving? I would rather there be fresh people on every single month (with some models thrown in for good measure) than have the same repetitive women on each issue. Does Jennifer Aniston deserve the amount of covers she's had? Or Sandra Bullock? I've never seen either of them wear anything even remotely fashionable yet they both have multiple covers. I agree with masquerade, Beyonce's fashion choices in the past couple of years have been daring. Do I love everything she wears? No. Not at all but she's going out there in a lot of designers that other stars wouldn't even DARE to put on their bodies. Pugh, Mugler, Balenciaga, she's pushing that envelope.

And given the constraints of the shape issue Beyonce is quite frankly an ideal choice. She's known for having a very voluptuous and shapely figure that she accentuates with dramatic clothing. Personally I can't think of anything more fitting for the subject at hand...

So to quote Beysus herself, haters can go to the left, to the left

love Beyonce.

love the cover.

think its well deserved and overdue.

am appalled by the "Real Women Have Curves" line. Actually - when I saw this cover image online, I immediately came to this thread, anticipating an army of enraged fashionistas threatening Ms Wintour's head, due to her absurd hypocrisy. Did she not feature Natasha Poly in her magazine recently? Or Magdalena, or Anja, or Olga, or whomever else of this crop of uber-thin runway zombies?

And I completely COMPLETELY agree that it is offensive to women of any shape. So women are only considered thus if they've got this particular physical characteristic. It's almost misogynistic.

The cover image itself, however, awesome.

A woman with curves on the shape issue? I never thought I'd see the day.

I think the photograph is just beautiful.

Wait, so you're saying that if we DON'T like the issue that we SHOULDN'T put a ring on it?

I think its an alright cover. It'll be like her 50th cover in six months.

Sorry I was talking about Jennifer

I mis-read the original post and thought they said Jennifer was not deserving when she was on the cover of Vogue
