Beyonce slays the cover of Vogue; talks modern fashion


Now this is the way to cover a magazine. Beyonce looks both regal and sexy on the cover of the September issue of  Vogue magazine. In the cover story, the singer talks about modern fashion trends. See the excerpt and more photos after the cut

"It used to be that the great pop stars with fashion and style gave us small variations on one grand theme. Tina Turner: minidresses and honey tresses. Janis Joplin: boas, bangles, and bell-bottoms. Cher: spangled striptease getups with mythic Third World touches. Nowadays fashion isn’t about the grand theme, it’s about juxtaposition, and it’s filled with allusions to movie and art history; to music and dance styles; to iconographies of race and ethnicity, religion and gender. Madonna opened the door to this collage approach. Today we see it in the wigs, masks, and sculpted costumes of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, the restless dazzle of Rihanna’s couture choices. And, of course, in the music, dance, decor, and looks of the ultimate streamed collage" -  BeyoncĂ©.
