BEYONCE has had some jaw-dropping cover shoots in the past – but she may have just blown them all out the water with her latest Vogue shoot.
In a preview of the issue on Vogue’s website, designer Marc Jacobs gushes about the star, saying: “The word diva is used for so many female performers, and it often means they have reputations for being difficult, but she exudes charm and a lovable quality.”
And Queen Bey doesn’t disappoint, as she poses up with soaking wet hair looking more striking than ever as she shows off her toned bum and major cleavage in the official inside photos.
Wearing a clinging black panelled dress, the star stands in one shot with her back to the camera, appearing to wear no underwear in the completely see-through gown.

Another sees her facing the shot as she shows off more cleavage than ever in a low-cut black gown, pulling a fierce pose.
Of course, while the rest of us would dread a photo with our hair this soaking – Beyonce pulls it off perfectly.
Elsewhere she’s seen in a sheer pink gown with flower embellishments alongside the words: ‘Just B – Beyonce and the art of global domination’.

The September issue of Vogue is widely-regarded to be its biggest of the year, with the most pages and the most adverts, and fans always face an anxious wait to find out which superstar will make the cover.
It is the third time the Single Ladies superstar has appeared on the cover of Vogue US.
She made her Vogue debut in 2009’s ‘shape’ issue, captioned: “Real women have curves – Beyonce at her best”, and the issue was slammed as racist and sexest.

But the Love on Top hitmaker didn’t let it get her down, using the recognition to her advantage, and flaunted those curves.
The following year she was nominated for 10 Grammys – the most Grammy nominations in a single year by a female artist.
She covered the US cover of Vogue’s Power issue in March 2013, opening up for the first time about her daughter Blue Ivy.
According to MTV, the 33-year-old is the third black female to appear solo on the September cover, behind Naomi Campbell and Halle Berry.
The issue is expected to be officially released on Friday. – Mirror
