BOSS: Beyoncé Reportedly Hires Vogue Magazine's First-Ever Black Photographer

Updated: Feb 8, 2019


Ain't nothing to a real one, ain't nothing to a -- boss.

Reports are swirling that Vogue Magazine's editor and chief, Anne Wintour, has given Beyoncé full creative control of its upcoming September issue and with that, Bey's reportedly hired the magazine's first black cover photographer, 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell.

If the rumors are true, this will be Vogue Magazine's first black photographer in the magazine's 126-year history.

Beyoncé's beautifully used her power and influence once again to thrust blackness at the creative forefront but it's so sad that it took Beyoncé, and not Vogue Magazine, to make this happen. SMH.

According to Huffington Post, Vogue is "contractually obligated" to let Beyoncé fully control the cover, the photos of her inside the magazine, and the captions, which she has reportedly written herself.

According to CBS News, Beyoncé's 2015 September cover for Vogue was also a notable one because she did not participate in an interview for the magazine -- an unprecedented move for a non-model cover star. She will reportedly skip an interview again for the 2018 issue. 

Just when we thought Beyoncé couldn't get any more iconic, it seems with just the flick of a wrist, she proves us wrong. Every. Single. Time.

Hide ya edges. Hide ya wigs. Hide ya clip-ons -- 'cause Beyoncé is snatching all of it!
