I'm a serious Beyonce fanboy, but I HATE this with a passion.

so all those models we see in vogue every month - including the eight or nine who will be on the cover soon - aren't real women? interesting. i guess they're just a crop of runway zombies then... (sorry, i don't mean to be rude, but did you realize that while you were criticizing the cover line for being harsh, you used a harsh adjective to characterize the models?...)
"real women have curves" on the cover of vogue sounds just so hypocrite. these attempts to give some "credit" to curvy women are done in such ignorant ways that they end up offending other body types. maybe anna should put beth ditto on the cover next month, she's super real i suppose.
anyway... i really, really dislike beyoncé (and it has nothing to do with her curves, i just can't stand her music) but the cover is not that bad, you know, i can recognize her (which is a very good start), and it's clean, the colors are ok... i hope the contents are reasonable.

I don't think they mean the whole "Real Women Have Curves" thing literally. Maybe we're looking into it a bit too much.

Bootylicious was 2001. That was 8 years ago.

Since then she has had 3 multiplatinum solo albums, roles in award winning and successful films, performed at the presidential inauguration, etc.

As much as I like Beyonce AND the cover, Beyonce doesn't strike me as a style icon or a figure of fashion really. Vogue is just sucking up too much to celebs these days.

Yeah definately, its always the same people over and over again. How many times have we seen Nicole, Drew and Scarlet? Too many times, and I personally dont consider any of them style icons.
Some people like Kate Moss I dont mind seeing a million times, simply because she IS a style icon (oh and a supermodel too I think).
Nowadays theyre plastering the photo of anyone with money on the cover.

Beyonce looks beautiful on the cover
Though it may be safe (which I realize for some people = boring) I think the cover is understated considering it is a U.S. Vogue depiction of Beyonce (simmilar to what they did with Kate Moss) though here I think it works
Can't wait to hear about the contents

Isn't Beyonce somewhat of a style icon. Maybe not a "STYLE" icon like Chloe Sevigny, Tilda Swinton or that Princess of Jordan, but a style icon in that people can't wait to see what see's wearing on the red carpet or interviews? A lot of people may not think she dresses well, but for someone of her fame, she gets people talking about what she wears.

I can't really think of another black style icon that could be put on the cover. I'm interested to see how well this issue sells. Like most here, I feel that there are too many celebrities on Vogue covers, but she is the biggest female music star (not counting Taylor Swift's album sales) right now, right?

Oh, and I do like the cover, though wish we could see more her body on the cover of the body issue.

BEYONCE? a style icon? sure, i guess she could be one for all the "bootylicious" girls out there.

i'm not hating on curvier folks, but frankly i'm kinda sick of them flaunting their curves in your face and it's sort of like a funny backlash against skinny people? like i've got a biiiiiig booty and i'm darned proud of it! SO WHAT?

IMO, beyonce should just get Vogue to style her for events.

i still can't get over that nauseating image of her at this year's Oscars in that horrific House of Dereon crap sausage dress.

i almost pitied Beyonce because obviously her tasteless mother made her wear that "ghetto-chic" monstrosity (a grown woman still allowing her mother to dress her?!???)
