About time, no?

Yashar Ali reported that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has given Beyoncé “unprecedented control over the cover of the upcoming September issue.”

One of Beyonce’s first orders was to hire a black photographer, Tyler Mitchell, to shoot the coveted September cover which is a first in the publication’s 126-year history.

“The reason a 23-year-old black photographer is photographing Beyoncé for the cover of Vogue is because Beyoncé used her power and influence to get him that assignment.” –a source to HuffPost

It’s rumored that the September 2018 cover may be Anna Wintour’s last issue, according to sources. Condé Nast insists this is not true.
