With Beyoncé on the cover, there’s a reason they call it “The Power Issue.” For the March 2013 issue of Vogue, photographer Patrick Demarchelier shoots a stylish Beyoncé in Marni, Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta and much more. The R&B superstar was styled by Camilla Nickerson, with make-up by Francesca Tolot and hairstyle by Kim Kimble.
For the first time, Beyoncé talks about her pregancy, and baby Blue Ivy Carter, born to her and husband Jay-Z:
I felt very maternal around eight months And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. . . . But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain. . . . We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.
