Beyoncé Given “Unprecedented” Control of ‘Vogue’s September Cover

Another day, another slay in the world of Beyoncé: Not only has the veritable power house been granted full and unpresented control over Vogue‘s upcoming September issue cover, but she has hired a black photographer to shoot it for the first time ever in the publications 126-year history.

Per the Telegraph‘s report, editor-in-chief Anna Wintour handed the reins over to Bey, a huge mark of respect from the publication’s iconic figurehead. Beyoncé seized this opportunity to hire Tyler Mitchell, a 23-year-old black photographer who will now go down in history as the first-ever person of color to shoot the magazine’s cover story.

As the Internet is pointing out however, while this move is certainly an incredible one, it’s sad that it took Beyoncé to make it happen. Here’s a round-up of some of the reactions on Twitter.

In Bey’s own words: “You know you that bitch when you cause all this conversation.”

Are you surprised to hear a black photographer has never shot a Vogue cover? Sound off in the comments.
