Beyoncé covers British Vogue with headwear, platform boots

Beyonce is back.

The iconic singer sent shockwaves through her fan base on Thursday when she announced that her next album, called “Renaissance”, will be released on July 29.

In conjunction with the news, Bey covers the July 2022 issue of British Vogue, sitting on horseback in a dramatic black Harris Reed feathered headpiece and black velvet gown.

Editor-in-chief Edward Enninful described the inspiration for the photo shoot as “a fashion fantasy that emerged from the tropes of club life during the last quarter of the last century”, including “mirror balls, light boxes, headdresses”.

He added that Beyoncé wanted to “play with fashion like never before”.

Indeed, she delivered.

On the pages of the magazine, the 40-year-old Grammy winner wears a gold sequin-covered sculptural jacket from Schiaparelli Haute Couture paired with matching planetary earrings from the brand. She completes the heavenly look with choppy bangs and a golden lip color.

She also wears a silk corset, sequined leggings and a silk train, all from Harris Reed, complemented by a pink version of the designer’s feather headgear and platform boots made in collaboration with Roker, while in another shot she sitting on top of a large disco ball.

Finally, in a goth bend, Beyoncé poses atop a motorcycle in an all-leather look, including a Junya Watanabe leather patchwork jacket, Commando vinyl leggings, Harris Reed & Roker platform boots, and a Malakai beaded leather headpiece with silver studs.

If these looks are any indication of Bey’s new era, then it sure is glamorous and playful.

The superstar hinted at the title of her seventh studio album in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar last year, saying: “With all the isolation and injustice of the past year, I think we’re all ready to escape, travel, love and laugh again.”

“I feel a renaissance coming on and I want to be a part of nurturing that escape in every way possible,” she said.
