Exclusive: Beyoncé To Cover Vogue September 2018, Rumored To Be Anna Wintour’s Final Issue
UNITED STATES —Beyoncé will cover Vogue’s September 2018 issue, fashion sources told Page Six. Photographer Tyler Mitchell photographed the shoot.
In September 2015, the international Grammy Award R&B/Pop singer made history by being the first solo BLACK woman to cover Anna Wintour‘s Vogue‘s September issue (see it here).
This will mark the singer’s fourth Vogue cover: aside from the Sept 2015 issue, Bey covered the magazine in April 2009 and March 2013, Vogue’s Power issue (see it here).
The September issue is the most important and biggest issue of the year for fashion publications. Candy Pratts Prince once said, “September is the January in fashion.” September’s fall fashion issues hold a lot of weight and most luxury houses spend the most amount of advertising dollars in this particular issue.
The Anna Wintour leaving Vogue rumors are still swirling around the media, publishing and fashion industries.
Reported DM Fashion Book back in April: Anna Wintour could be on her way out of Condé Nast (she serves as artistic director, overseeing all of the media company’s publications) and Vogue (she serves as editor-in-chief). Wintour — who became editor in chief of Vogue in 1988 — is to exit her all-powerful role at the publishing house this summer. The move would also allow Wintour, 68 — who has for three decades been fashion’s ultimate power broker — to step aside on a high after closing Vogue’s all-important September issue (see it here). Of course, Condé Nast has vehemently denied the rumors.
