Behind the Scenes of Beyoncé’s September ‘Vogue’ Cover Shoot

Beyoncé’s September Vogue cover is a glossy piece of fashion history: it’s the first time in the magazine’s 126-year-history that the front page has been shot by a black photographer.

The cover spread was also unique in that Beyoncé was given full creative control of the outfits she wore, and she wrote the entire accompanying piece, a confessionally-structured, highly transparent explanation of her journey with motherhood, family, and heritage that you can read here.

Today, Vogue has released behind-the-scenes footage of Bey’s cover shoot with 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell.
