Beyonce shows off jagged baby bangs in a fresh British Vogue editorial

When we learned that Beyonce would be releasing a new album, Renaissance Act I, in July, I wondered if Bey would do any print promotion for it. For years now, she barely has to speak or “promote” her work in the way other artists have to. Even Adele does at least three or four major print interviews with her album releases. Beyonce rarely does anything like that. Beyonce has not felt the need – she wants her work to speak for itself. So… Bey covers the July issue of British Vogue, and this doesn’t seem to be an actual interview. This was Beyonce posing for an editorial and inviting Edward Enniful to her home for dinner. He wrote the “cover story” as it is, and he got to hear some of the new album. This is my favorite part of his story:

Our one previous time working together had come at the end of 2020, when circumstances dictated that Zoom be our conduit on the shoot days: me in Berlin, B in the Hamptons. As the world opened up again, we ran into one another at a party thrown by a mutual friend, where naturally, after some appropriate small talk, I asked when we might make some more pictures together. Enigmatic as ever, she replied: “I think we could do something for July” and breezed off into the night.

LMAO, Beyonce just twirled away after telling the editor of British Vogue “I think we could do something for July.” Her power, honestly. As for Enniful being invited to a family dinner:

And now, two days on, I find myself truly en famille, sitting at Beyoncé’s dinner table on a Sunday night. I’m a little stunned at how relaxed it all is. Sure, the house is impressively minimalist, with acres of white walls, gleaming glass and beautiful art. As a scrumptious dinner of ribs, cream corn, peas, and mashed potatoes is served, I’m not sure the mood could be any cosier.

I’m so struck by how tranquil our hostess is. At this point, her ironclad devotion to professionalism and privacy is legendary and yet here she is at home with her hair loose, not a stitch of make-up on, wearing a hoodie, just being herself. Her armour is so lowered, her laughter so infectious, her skin so glowy, she honestly looks like a teenager.

Tell me more about the ribs and mashed potatoes! I had no idea that Beyonce still ate like that, I thought she was constantly dieting and doing three-week vegan challenges. I’m super-proud of Beyonce that she’s not like that anymore – she seems really comfortable in her own skin, with her curves and her body the way it is now.

I think most of these photos are awful, by the way. I’m sure Beyonce approved all of them, but she’s never really been known for “iconic” magazine editorials. The jagged baby bangs? The awkward body positions? Beygency, please don’t hurt me, but this is awful.

    British Vogue kills it their cover.. hoping one day US version will be as creative so I can buy it.
    The bangs remind me of Earth Kitt for some reason. The headpiece she is wearing when sitting on the horse is reminiscent of the Iron Throne from GoT

    • ChillinginDC says:

      Read up that the cover was kind of an homage to Bianca Jagger. No idea if true or not, but was following a really cool twitter thread who was pointing out different things about the art he was seeing.

  2. Noki says:

    Well i dont doubt she now eats what she wants in her off seasons, but she also has three kids and a guest,she wasnt about to serve diet food.

  3. ChillinginDC says:

    Totally disagree, these covers are high art. And everyone is pointing out how bad Vogue is with covers when you compare what he is doing versus Anna.

    • DrSnark says:

      Totally agree. I love them. I think Beyonce is great (although I do not stan for her lol), but these photos are incredible regardless of your feelings about Bey.

  4. Marla Hooch says:

    Celebrities always eat like that in interviews “She devoured a burger and fries as she talked about never being able to diet ‘I tried it…’ she mused as she dunked a fry first into ketchup and straight into gravy ‘but I just couldn’t. I honestly still eat like a teenager’. They’re so normal! It’s all PR…

  5. GR says:

    Not surprised British Vogue is cooler looking than US Vogue – Anna always wears awful floral dresses that she seems to have stolen from Katie Keen.

  6. Kate says:

    I like the cover photo a lot but barely recognize her in the other photos. They’re interesting photos for sure, but she doesn’t look like herself!

    • Betsy says:

      I had the same thought looking at her pics on yesterday’s thread. One of those cases in which if the pic hadn’t been labeled, I wouldn’t have known who it was.

    • Vavavoom says:

      They’re interesting photos. She doesn’t look ‘beautiful’, which she is .. maybe that’s the idea. In the close up she looks so much like her Mom, which is a resemblance I never really saw before. She looks stern, which is how I see her mom’s resting face. (Her Mom is very attractive, I’m not saying she isn’t, but Beyonce is much softer usually)

  7. NotSoSocialB says:

    The baby bangs age her. There, I said it.

    • Original penguin says:

      I love the art of these photos. And if the theme is renaissance, then they are on point.

  8. Coco says:

    I love the Art style of the British Vogue , but the photoshop is really bad which I’m surprised about.

  9. RoSco says:

    The photos are mixed for me. I really like the cover photo and the one with the red visor. The other ones I don’t care for.

  10. Glamarazzi says:

    That cover is fire!!

  11. minx says:

    Those bangs, not a fan.

  12. jferber says:

    Not a fan of the bangs either, but all the outfits are killing it. Beyonce sitting on the glitter ball gives me life.
