According to the photo originally leaked on Twitter, Beyoncé is covering Vogue's September issue. She's styled in a lavender lace dress with wet hair, a nod to her "Drunk in Love" video.
This is the magazine's third Bey cover to date. Previously, Patrick Demarchelier photographed the singer for the March 2013 issue, and Mario Testino photographed her for the April 2009 issue. This also marks only the third all-important September issue to feature a solo black woman, after Naomi Campbell (1989) and Halle Berry (2010).
