Beyoncé Embraces Her Post-Pregnancy Curves In Latest Cover Of Vogue Magazine
By Izza Sofia, 07 Aug 2018
Beyoncé has been chosen to grace the cover of Vogue’s September issue. Here, the star looks dreamy and radiant in her photo shoot captured by 23-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell.
The September issue of the publication garnered a great deal of attention after Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour handed Beyoncé free rein over the singer’s feature on the cover and photos to be included inside the edition.
The photos’ captions, personally penned by Beyoncé, touch on topics such as her latest pregnancy, how she had to go through an emergency C-section, and the twins being held in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for weeks. She revealed her experience with toxemia while pregnant with Sir and Rumi, a condition that forced her to rest for more than a month.
Instead of shedding off her baby weight, Beyoncé has chosen to embrace her curviness, stating that she is “in no rush” to get rid of the extra pounds.
Her body image played a major role in her magazine spread, as she wanted to be a role model to those struggling with self-acceptance. She wrote in Vogue magazine that she had stripped away wigs and hair extensions, opting instead for minimal makeup to support natural beauty.
She explained that she now has a “little mommy pouch,” fuller arms, shoulders, breasts and thighs, but she is loving every part of her body.
