Beyoncé Stars in a September Issue (Surfbort Included)

The magazine world is really delivering this September. A star roster of supermodels covers Vogue, Rihanna looks wild on W, and now Beyoncé is dropping jaws with her CR Fashion Book spotlight. The glossy’s fifth issue comes out on September 4 – Queen Bey’s birthday, obviously – with a high-fashion spread devoted to the culture-dominating idol. And yes, it even includes a very chic Chanel surfboard. Excuse me, surfbort.

The front cover teases with a sequined mask covering Beyoncé’s face. On the opposite side she appears in all her glory, wearing a voluminous floral Yohji Yamamoto garment. Inside, the Carine Roitfeld–led magazine opted for a prose poem, written by the singer, instead of an article. The rest of the spread, shot by Pierre Debusschere, displays looks from Comme des Garçons, CÉLINE, and Saint Laurent.

Last month, critics debated whether or not Mrs. Carter is a fashion icon. I’m pretty sure this feature puts those questions to rest.

North West: The Future of Fashion?

The Kardashian clan is no stranger to a photo shoot. And now even the youngest member of the family, North, has dipped her tiny toes in the modeling pool. Featured in the fifth edition of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, Kimye’s daughter rocks head-to-toe Chanel in a spread titled Legends. A legend at just 13 months old? Well, according to Karl Lagerfeld’s accompanying quote, “It’s never too early to care about fashion!” From those glittering diamond studs to the mini 2.55 quilted bag, I’d say little North has a very fashionable future ahead.
