    I was hoping for something in the vein of Black Is King. She looked absolutely spectacular in that movie.

    I agree with Vogue28 that her Vogue US cover from 2009 is her only good Vogue cover.

    I must be either blind or starved for fashion but I love the Mugler & McQueen covers, absolutely stunning in my opinion & love that it’s something different from British Vogue. Not crazy about the Adidas cover but I understand that it was probably requested by her team to go with the new launch. I’m extremely excited for the 20 page editorial too.

    My favourite is the green one, but then I think, adidas on a Vogue cover... it's laughable!

    Three strikes... you're out!
    This is embarrassingly bad.

    The first cover I love! Unexpected!
    The other 2 is a hard no no no!

    Same. I don't think they needed the other two. The first one I actually like, it's striking.. I'm not sure it's striking in a good way, or terrible way, I just want to stare at it... it's provocative, vulgar, entering a territory you wouldn't normally enter with Vogue in mind.. the lighting and colors makes me feel like it's a show (at a strip club?) I'd actually love to be invited to and obviously wouldn't mind paying for. Definitely more promising than what it actually is (the cover of a fashion magazine full of nothing inside), refreshing for what it really is (Vogue) and.. Christmas-y for adults.

    The first cover is the best one, and it could have been great with a different pose, and photographer.
    The second cover is just bad.
    The third cover is looks like a 90's r&b album outtake.

    Beyonce is a beautiful woman, but I've never been remotely interested in her as a personality. There's just nothing there.
    Like my mama says, she's just dead in the face.

    The first cover is striking enough on its own that I don’t think the other two were needed. But out of the second and third cover, the latter with McQueen is my favorite. The second cover with Adidas just does absolutely nothing for me.

    I’m still recovering from the snoozefest that was August, September, October and even November as well, so this one came in handy right for this moment!

    The only one that I seem to like is the McQueen one, but overall all 3 are nothing to write home about!

    Beyoncé... chile. First of all, who is Kennedi Carter? Apparently, it's a big deal that she's the youngest photographer to ever shoot a Vogue cover. You can tell, it's art student level at best.
    The Ivy Park cover never should've seen the light of day, it's the worst out of three. That neon green physically hurts me and Beyoncé doesn't look good. It takes talent to f*ck up Beyoncé. The second worst offender is the McQueen cover. What were any of them thinking when they told her to squat like that? Please! Was it supposed to look powerful? Cause it don't. And there's something off about her hair/makeup... it just doesn't sit right with me.
    Now the first cover was f*cking fierce! The body, the hair, the mug! Y E S. The pose.. a little unconventional, but I like that. She looks wonderful, and I gagged when I saw it on Instagram. But then the rest just killed the mood! I'm always happy to see Beyoncé, but please, stop pushing Ivy Park. It's hideous.

    Love Beyonce, like the idea, disappointed with the execution. Ultimately, the problem is that it fits the « Beyoncé aesthetic ». Her first US Vogue cover was her best and her first UK Vogue cover was the best.

    Beyoncé by Meisel would have been fabulous indeed and I think that Edward is the one who can do it perfectly. Testino is IMO the one who has done justice to her beauty. She needs to be less about control...

    Now that it’s Beyoncé and Vogue involved, I want to know all the « first attached to it »...

    She looks really tired in the face, that expression isn't exactly imposing...more like annoyed. I do like what they were going for with the first one though.

    The text placement is also not good, and I don't know why they bill everyone and their mother on the cover...I hardly care about Prince Charles, let alone the rest of the subjects.

    Oh no, what a disappointing batch of covers. As much as I will defend Beyonce's artistry, visuals, and untouchable talent until the day I die... she just isn't the strongest editorially, never has been. And the Ivy Park cover :blink:

    Happy to see something from her though; she's always in hibernation right before a burst of publicity.
