Thanks to Beyonce, the cover of the upcoming issue of Vogue magazine will reportedly be shot by a black photographer for the first time in the publication’s 126-year history.
The HuffPost was first to report that Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour has given the music superstar unprecedented control over next month’s issue – which features their fall fashion campaign and is considered the most influential edition of any magazine within the style industry.
Sources familiar with the agreement between the magazine and Beyoncé regarding the upcoming issue told HuffPost the star reportedly selected 23-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell to shoot the cover.
“I depict black people and people of color in a really real and pure way,” Mitchell, told the New York Times last year. There is an honest gaze to my photos.”
He has shot for Marc Jacobs and Givenchy campaigns.
